Generic Gold Announces 1,500 m Drill Program Targeting High Priority EM Plates on Belvais Project, Québec

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 6, 2022) - Generic Gold Corp. (CSE: GGC) (FSE: 1WD) (OTCQB: GGCPF) ("Generic Gold" or "Generic" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has obtained the required permits for a new 1,500-metre diamond drill program on the Belvais Project, located in the northwestern region of Québec's Abitibi greenstone belt. The program is to follow up on high-priority EM (electromagnetic) targets that were discovered in the recently completed BHEM (borehole electromagnetics) program. The strongest and highest priority of these BHEM anomalies lies only 25m under surface and is approximately 1.2km south of Starr Peak Mining's recent drilling on their Normetmar VMS deposit. Figure 1 demonstrates three of the planned diamond holes (yellow collars) with their associated EM plates (orange) that are being targeted. The drill rig is set to mobilize mid-week and begin drilling immediately after.

The BHEM technique has seen great success in the immediate area with neighbouring Starr Peak Mining (TSXV: STE), which has successfully converted its BHEM anomalies into VMS targets, and was their main discovery tool at the NewMétal property (see Starr Peak Press Release dated February 23, 2021), which borders Generic's, Belvais property.

The Chicobi belt has seen a renewed exploration focus over recent years, largely due to numerous high-grade gold discoveries by bordering Amex Exploration (TSX-V: AMX). The area is historically very underexplored for gold and has the potential to become another major gold producing belt of the Abitibi, all in the while remaining highly prosperous for further VMS discoveries. Neighbouring Amex Exploration has been recently named Exploration Company of the Year at Mines and Money London, highlighting the quality of assets in the immediate area.

As shown in Figure 2, the Belvais project lies directly south-east of Amex Exploration's Perron Project, which recently announced a new VMS discovery (the QF Zone) along the Normétal Mine Sequence (see Amex Press Release dated August 9, 2021), and is also directly east and south-east of Starr Peak's NewMétal project, which announced high-grade VMS mineralization on their Normetmar target (see Starr Peak Press Release dated May 4, 2021). Both of these new discoveries occur along the Normétal Fault which is of particular significance for Generic Gold, as the Company holds over 20 km of the Normétal Fault on its Belvais claims and is one of the largest landholders in the area with 12,563 hectares.
