September 11, 2012

RENO, Nev. — General Metals Corp. announced it has begun soliciting quotations from global vendors for pricing on the metallurgical processing and gold recovery equipment and systems it will need as the its Wilson Independence gold project is put into production.

The company will use contractors to mine using open pit mining methods. The heap leaching process facilities and equipment necessary to initially capture the gold in solution as well the equipment used in subsequent stages of gold recovery including carbon columns, pumps, stripping circuits, electro-winning circuits and furnaces is being solicited. In addition the company intends to set up an atomic adsorption lab at the mine site.

Daniel J. Forbush, president and CEO, noted, "Our understanding of the Independence has progressed to the point where we now have a pretty comprehensive indication of how we will be able to recover gold and silver from our mineralization. Thanks to the diligent efforts of the management team and our expert outside consultants we can now define with some certainty the types and capacity of the equipment we will need to produce and sell gold from our property."

General Metals Corp. is an aggressive junior minerals exploration and development company, based in Reno, Nev. The company is actively exploring and developing its 100% controlled Independence property located in the Battle Mountain Mining District of Nevada.
