General Metals Announces Approval of Name Change and Reverse Stock Split

RENO, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 -- General Metals Corporation (OTCQB: GNMTD) (www.generalmetalscorporation.com) (the "Company") announced today that it has received approval today from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA") for a change in the name of the Company and for a 20:1 reverse stock split of the Company's common stock effective May 30, 2014. On May 7, 2014, the Company's board of directors had approved a change in the name of the Company from General Metals Corporation to Cibolan Gold Corporation and a twenty (20) old for one (1) new reverse stock split of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The name change and reverse stock split was originally approved at a special meeting of the stockholders on November 22, 2013. Upon effect of the reverse stock split, the Company's issued and outstanding shares of common stock will be decreased from 375,526,796 to 18,776,340 shares of common stock, with a par value of $0.001.

A Certificate of Amendment of the Certificate of Incorporation to effect the change of name and reverse stock split was filed with the Delaware Secretary of State on May 14, 2014, with an effective date of May 27, 2014. These amendments have been reviewed by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and have been approved for filing with an effective date of May 30, 2014. The reverse split and name change will become effective with the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board at the opening of trading on May 30, 2014 under the symbol "GNMTD". The "D" will be placed on the Company's ticker symbol for 20 business days at which time the symbol will change to "CIBG". Our new CUSIP number is 17164L 109.

President and CEO of General Metals, Dan Forbush, noted: "Recently we have taken some definitive steps to improve shareholder values -- first and most importantly we secured outright ownership of the Wilson Independence gold and silver claim block; second, as a result of the previously announced Binding Letter of Intent with Compass Holdings, we obtained a joint venture partner with a commitment for the funding we will need to complete the next phase of exploration and development work at the project; third, we completed a share roll-back that will give us a stronger base from which to grow the Company and increase shareholder value, and; finally we have moved to complete our 43-101 filing which will be essential for all future capital raises and any new exchange listings we may pursue. Having a new name for the Company seems entirely fitting at this point given all these positive steps and the very evident positive direction in which we are moving."

Mr. Forbush continued, "In my opinion these steps completed in the last 40 days are major milestones in putting the Company on very solid ground. Through purchasing the claims we removed the payment of advanced minimum royalties from the cash flow equation thereby lowering the annual cost of holding the claims by more than $125,000. With the $2.875 million investment in the project we anticipate identifying addition mineralization on the claims that we now own and progressing the permitting for production."

Existing General Metals Corporation common stock certificates currently held by Company shareholders can be surrendered to the Company's stock transfer agent Nevada Agency and Trust Company in exchange for certificates representing common shares of CIBOLAN GOLD CORPORATION, on the basis of ONE (1) new share of CIBOLAN GOLD CORPORATION for TWENTY (20) old shares of GENERAL METALS CORPORATION. The Company shortly will be providing details to each shareholder on the mechanism of this exchange.
