Generic Gold Identifies Gold, Silver, Copper and Zinc anomalies from sampling on Belvais Project, Quebec

Feb 24, 2021

"The B-Horizon level of soil is an important layer that can often contain trace metals and pathfinder elements, providing an indication of what lies below in bedrock," Aaron Stone, Vice President Exploration of Generic Gold, said.  "This was a comprehensive program that has produced many anomalies spread out across the property. Of note, we have observed several anomalous gold values adjacent to the important Normétal thrust fault which appears to be associated with a significant high grade gold discovery for our neighbour. We hold a significant portion of this thrust fault within our Belvais claims, so it will of course be a focal point for upcoming target generation. In addition, there is a strong correlation between anomalous copper and zinc values which is indicative of possible VMS-type mineralization. We will combine these soil results with data from our recently completed VTEM survey, which we are currently interpreting and will release in the coming weeks, in order to generate drill targets."

Generic Gold Corp. is sharing the results from its recently conducted B-Horizon soil sampling program on its 100% owned Belvais Project in Québec. Soil samples returned multiple gold, silver, copper and zinc anomalies as displayed in Figure 1. Belvais lies directly south-east of Amex Exploration's Perron Project, which recently announced a new high-grade gold discovery along the Normétal Fault (refer to Amex Exploration Press Release dated 17th February, 2021) on their Perron Project. This 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 land holders in the area with 12,563 hectares.

The B-horizon soil sampling program was completed to assist with drill target generation. During the 16-day soil sampling campaign completed in December 2020, 369 samples were taken, spread out across the four blocks of Belvais (see Figure 1), with line spacings between 900-1000 metres apart and sample stations every 150 metres. Generic Gold engaged a consulting geologist specialising in glacial till geology and movements to plan the program and analyse results. With the obtained gold results and knowledge of local glacial dispersion, the consultant has generated up-ice targets from which anomalous gold values may be derived. The Company also recently completed an airborne VTEM geophysical survey across all its Belvais blocks to identify structures and conductive bodies which may aid in discovering important smaller splay faults off the larger Normétal thrust. Results from this survey are expected over the coming weeks. This is the final data input prior to selecting key targets for the drilling campaign expected to be launched in the coming months.
