Generic Gold Expands Belvais Land Position in Normetal Region, Quebec
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - September 29, 2020) - Generic Gold Corp. (CSE: GGC) (FSE: 1WD) ("Generic Gold" or the "Company") announces the acquisition (the "Transaction") of a large block of claims contiguous with its Belvais project ("Belvais"), located near the town of Normétal, Quebec. The newly acquired property (the "Des Meloizes Property" or "Belvais North") comprises 4,415 hectares which increases the land position of the overall Belvais project to 12,563 hectares as shown in Figure 1. Belvais North is crossed by the regional Normétal thrust fault which is related to significant mineralization at the neighbouring Perron project and the past-producing Normétal mine. Geology underlying the newly acquired project consists of highly prospective Normétal horizon felsic to intermediate volcanic rocks, which host the past-producing Normétal mine, as well as felsic volcanic rocks of the Clermon-Disson formation. Belvais North also hosts a historical polymetallic mineral showing, Lac Des Méloizes-1356, from which drill results include: 1.048% Zn over 4.50 m from 262.50 to 267.0 m; 1.082 g / t Au over 1.0 m from 544.60 to 545.60 m; and 0.303% Cu, 4.3 g / t Ag over 0.50 m from 592.10 to 592.60 m (SOURCE: SIGEOM, Quebec Government.
