Generic Gold Corp. (CSE: GGC) (FSE: 1WD) (OCTQB: GGCPF) ("Generic Gold" or "Generic" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its recently completed BHEM (borehole electromagnetic) geophysical program has uncovered multiple strong anomalies across the Belvais Project, located in the northwestern region of Québec's Abitibi greenstone belt. Eight (8) anomalies in total have been modelled, with four (4) having a moderate to strong signal response (See Table 1). The strongest and highest priority of these BHEM anomalies lies only 25m under surface and is approximately 1.2km south of where Starr Peak Mining is drilling on their Normetmar VMS deposit. The program was completed by geophysical contractor Abitibi Geophysics of Val d'Or, Québec with a secondary expert opinion provided by Marc Boivin, P.Geo. of MB Geosolutions. Generic Gold will now evaluate these prospects for further diamond drilling. Figure 2 presents the suggested follow-up drillholes.

The BHEM technique has seen great success in the immediate area with neighbouring Starr Peak Mining, which has successfully converted its BHEM anomalies into VMS targets, and was their main discovery tool at the NewMétal property (see Starr Peak Press Release dated February 23, 2021), which borders Generic's, Belvais property.

As shown in Figures 1 and 3, the Belvais project lies directly south-east of Amex Exploration's Perron Project, which recently announced a new VMS discovery (the QF Zone) along the Normétal Mine Sequence (see Amex Press Release dated August 9, 2021), and is also directly east and south-east of Starr Peak's NewMétal Project, which announced high-grade VMS mineralization on their Normetmar target (see Starr Peak Press Release dated May 4, 2021). Both of these new discoveries occur along the Normétal Fault which 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 landholders in the area with 12,563 hectares.

Phase 2 Drilling

The Company also wishes to report that anomalous gold values were reported in multiple holes from its Phase 2 drill program on the Belvais Project. Follow-up drilling is planned to further analysis the potential of these results.

About InfiniTEM and borehole EM:

The time-domain electromagnetic survey, as performed by Abitibi Geophysics, consists of measuring the electromagnetic field induced in the subsurface after the application of a primary magnetic field. This type of measurement of the electromagnetic properties of the subsurface utilizes a large and targeted magnetic field to electrically activate rocks in the ground remotely. To create the desired primary magnetic field, a loop of wire is installed at the surface, in which an electrical current is transmitted in square-waved, bipolar pulses. Properly positioned, this magnetic field will successfully couple with conductive bodies in the subsurface. The time-varying primary field will induce eddy currents which will generate their own magnetic field in return. The magnetic field generated by the eddy currents is referred to as the secondary magnetic field, as it is induced during the turn-off time of the primary field and measured during the off time. The method is and has been particularly useful in the mineral exploration industry to detect economic metallic sulphides in Ni-Cu-PGE, VMS, and uranium deposits.

In 2004, Abitibi Geophysics Inc. developed, in collaboration with Soquem Inc., the InfiniTEM® configuration. This configuration utilizes an infinity shaped loop consisting of two lobes in which the electrical current is flowing in opposite directions. The vertical component of the primary field generated by these lobes of opposite polarity is nulled, thus drastically reducing coupling with overburden. In return, the two horizontal components of the primary field are cumulated at depth to maximise the electrical activation of sub-vertical conductors. The use of two lobes also reduces the risk of a strong conductor masking another one, as can be the case with conventional, fixed single loops.

Generic Gold Announces Results of Exploration Program on Its VIP Gold Project, Yukon

Generic Gold Corp. (CSE:GGC) (“Generic Gold” or the “Company”) announces the results of a reverse circulation (“RC”) drill program on its VIP property in Yukon, Canada.

The drill program consisted of 1,090 metres in 11 shallow drillholes testing several multiparameter targets on the property. The majority of the program was focused on an area known as the Redbull Zone, on which the Company has completed several preparatory exploration campaigns including soil sampling, prospecting, geoprobe sampling, and trenching (see Generic Gold press release dated September 21st, 2018). Drilling confirmed the auriferous nature of the structure, with broad zones of anomalous low grade gold mineralization, as shown in Table 1 and Figure 1 below. Economic grade mineralization was not encountered during this campaign, although within the mineralized intervals noted below every sample returned elevated gold values. This is indicative of a primary mineralized structure. The next stage of exploration on the target will involve testing laterally along this fault for secondary mineralizing cross-cutting structures or variations in host rocks which may deform in a more brittle fashion and increase the potential for higher gold values elsewhere in the system.

Generic Gold Announces Completion of Drill Program on Its VIP Gold Project, Yukon

Generic Gold Corp. (CSE:GGC) (“Generic Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on its recently completed reverse circulation (“RC”) drill program on its VIP property in Yukon, Canada.

President and CEO, Kelly Malcolm commented: “During the first ever drill program on the VIP property, Generic completed 1,090 metres in 11 shallow drillholes testing the Redbull, Monster and Rockstar Zones. I am very excited about the geology and mineralization we’ve encountered during the program. In addition to the expected oxidized mineralization we were targeting which occurred over substantial widths, we have encountered abundant concentrations of unoxidized sulfides and associated favourable alteration further downhole. We are very much looking forward to receiving assay results from the project, which is just 20 kilometres west and on trend from the Coffee Gold project which was purchased by Goldcorp for $520 million in 2016.”

Yorbeau discovers new lens of copper and zinc west of the Gwillim fault on its Scott Lake property, Chibougamau, Quebec

Yorbeau discovers new lens of copper and zinc west of the Gwillim fault on its Scott Lake property, Chibougamau, Quebec

Yorbeau Resources Inc. (TSX: YRB) (" Yorbeau " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce the progress of the exploration program initiated in late August 2022 on its Scott property near Chibougamau, Quebec 100% owned by the Company.

As of October 5, 2022 three holes have been drilled on the property for a total of 2,615 meters. During this program, which is still ongoing, the company discovered a well mineralized 6.6 meters zone of sulphide rich in chalcopyrite (copper) and sphalerite (zinc) centered at a vertical depth of about 925 meters. The sulfide zone has so far been intersected by two drill holes, about 60 meters apart and a third is being executed. This zone of sulfide coincides with a modeled electromagnetic conductor 150 by 150 meters, 300 meters west of known Scott Lake deposit. The average thickness of this zone is not known at this moment. Indeed, the two holes that intersected the conductor only scratched the surface of the eastern edge (EST) of the electromagnetic conductor, according to our interpretation and the modeling made by Inter-Géophysique from Rosemère in Quebec. The current drilling is now targeting the center of the conductor in order to determine the potential size of the lens.
