General Metals Raises $473,000 via Private Placement

RENO, NV — General Metals Corporation raised $473,000 in cash, settlement of management salaries and services from a recent private placement of 24,300,000 restricted common shares. 7,400,000 shares were issued @ $0.025/share to settle $185,000 owed to management for 2008 through April 30, 2009, 2,350,000 shares were issued for services @ $0.025 and 14,550,000 shares were issued @ $0.016 for $231,000 in cash. The placement will be fully detailed in an 8-K filing to follow. The securities offered in the private placement to the investors were not registered under the Securities Act of 1933 as amended (the “Act”), and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration, or an applicable exemption from registration, under the Act.

Use of proceeds will be used to retire Company debt obligations to Management, pay for essential services, pay outstanding payables incurred for drilling and permitting and to further advance permitting and metallurgical work in the ramp up for production.

In addition, a further $129,750 of cash has been committed but has not yet been received. Further details will be available as received.

This funding demonstrates the confidence of Management and our shareholders and their commitment to advance the Independence Project. The shares issued are deemed closely held, with finance proceeds coming from Management and existing long term shareholders.

“Every time we get the opportunity to share our enthusiasm and commitment to this project with others including those that have not heard of it before, we find new friends and supporters,” said Dan Forbush, Company CFO. “It is very enjoyable to share our vision with others and see them catch it as well. This is a great property on which to build a company.”
