Generic Gold provides exploration update on Belvais Project, Quebec

Dec 17, 2020

Generic Gold Corp. is pleased to provide an update on the progress of exploration work on its Belvais Project in Québec. The groundwork for the B-horizon soil sampling program has been completed and samples have been sent for analysis. Results are expected by mid to late January. The VTEMTM Geophysical Program continues to progress well. Completion is envisaged for January with results from the survey to follow soon after. Belvais lies directly south-east of Amex Exploration's Perron Project, which has made several high-grade gold discoveries (please refer to Amex Exploration's website). Generic Gold holds a significant land position of 12,563 hectares in the immediate Normétal area. 

The B-horizon soil sampling program is an important data point for target generation. The B-horizon level of soil has one or more of the following: enrichment in organic matter, iron and aluminum, by the development of soil structure. Anomalous values found in this layer can be an indication of a bedrock source. During the 16-day soil sampling campaign, 369 samples were taken, spread out across the four blocks of Belvais (see Figure 1), with line spacings between 120-150 metres. The work was completed by a team of six geologists and technicians. The team also took advantage of the opportunity in the field to complete mapping of a number of outcrops and to note all access ways. Follow up sampling work on these mapped outcrops is planned for next year.

Aaron Stone, Vice President Exploration of Generic Gold, said, "As illustrated in Figure 1 this was a comprehensive soil sampling program and our team at Laurentia Exploration has done a great job of getting the program completed on time. Their efficiency speaks to the ease of access to the entire Belvais property and the experience and proficiency of the team on site. We're pleased with the pace and progression of our inaugural exploration activities on Belvais and we eagerly await results from the lab."
