General Metals Announces Letter of Intent With Compass Holdings

RENO, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- General Metals Corporation (OTCQB: GNMT) (www.generalmetalscorporation.com) (the "Company") announced today that it has executed a binding Letter of Intent with Compass Holdings, LLC, a private investment company headquartered in Layton, Utah ("Compass") to (i) acquire outright the leasehold interest in all of the gold and silver mining claims (the "Wilson-Independence Mine") currently held by the Independence Gold-Silver Mines, Inc. and (ii) to form a Joint Venture (the "JV") to complete the exploration and evaluation of the Wilson Independence Mine with the objective of bringing the property into commercial production. Under the terms of the Company's agreement with Compass, Compass will pay $1.0 million, in two tranches, to acquire the mining claims interest and to provide working capital to General Metals. The initial tranche -- $500,000 -- will be paid by April 25, 2014 and the balance no later than 120 days following the execution of a definitive JV Agreement between the Company and Compass at which point the JV will own free and clear 100% of the interest in the Wilson- Independence Mine. This ownership will be subject only to a 2.125% royalty interest retained by Independence Gold and Silver Mines, Inc., a 1% royalty held by Gold Range, Inc., and a contingent royalty of 1% payable to Compass in the event of a sale of the Wilson-Independence Mine.

Company President and CEO Daniel J. Forbush indicated: "The Agreement with Compass is a significant step forward for the Company. We are teaming with a company with access to significant financial resources that shares our beliefs in the long production potential of the Wilson-Independence. Even more importantly the transaction enables the JV to gain full control of all the mining claims at the property at an attractive price and subject to a much reduced royalty percentage. This should all translate into a very significant increase in equity values for our shareholders. It is noteworthy that we were able to accomplish this in a very difficult financing environment for junior gold mining firms."

Under the terms of the proposed JV Agreement between the Company and Compass, Compass will earn a 25% interest upon the payment of its initial $1.0 million. Compass will increase its JV interest to 50% upon the payment of an additional $1.875 million to be spent within 36 months. Further Compass intends to separately evaluate processing of the dump material already in place on the property which according to the Company's most recent independent technical report could contain approximately 31,000 tons of mineral-bearing material.

Delyn Yeates, Managing Member of Compass indicated: "We are tremendously excited about our venture with Dan and General Metals. We are teaming with a very experienced mining group that shares our values and is focused on developing and operating a strategically located gold and silver property that has tremendous upside. We are pleased to participate in this venture. We look forward to developing a permitable and economically justifiable process to expeditiously extract gold and silver from the waste rock. Compass is committed to building a process facility to produce the gold and silver resources which we believe to be substantial."
