Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - July 7, 2020) - Generic Gold Corp. (CSE: GGC) (FSE: 1WD) ("Generic Gold" or the "Company") announces the acquisition of three blocks of claims (the "Project") in the Abitibi region of northwestern Quebec, proximal and to the east of the town of Normétal. The Project is comprised of 169 mineral claims covering approximately 8,148 hectares of prospective Archean stratigraphy of felsic through to mafic volcanic rocks, sediments, and numerous intrusions of varying age and compositions. The Project has been explored sporadically over the years following the discovery and mining of the Normétal polymetallic mine, which was discovered in 1929 and mined until 1975, reaching a depth of 2,400 metres below surface.
In order to acquire a 100% interest in the Project, Generic Gold will grant to the vendors (the "Vendors"), who are arms-length parties to the Company, $300,000 cash and 4.5 million shares issued in several tranches. In addition to the cash and common share consideration, Generic Gold must complete a minimum of $300,000 of exploration work on the Project within the first 12 months, and grant to the Vendors a 3% net smelter returns royalty in respect of the Project (the "Transaction"). The completion of the Transaction is subject to certain closing conditions, including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and other approvals, including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
