Generic Gold Corp. (“Generic Gold” or the “Company”) (CSE: GGC) is pleased to announce results of exploration activities completed at the Goodman and Seattle Projects (the “Project”), approximately 40 kilometres northwest of the village of Mayo and southwest of Victoria Gold’s Eagle Gold project, Yukon Territory.
The work completed during the 2017 field season consisted of reverse circulation (“RC”) drilling, induced polarization (“IP”) geophysics, soil sampling, prospecting, and geological mapping. In addition, the land positions at the Project were significantly increased, and an NI-43-101-compliant technical report was completed. A summary of work completed and associated results can be seen in the accompanying map (link to figure 1: https://orders.newsfilecorp.com/files/3923/33593_a1521546720082_80.jpg).
President and CEO of Generic Gold, Kelly Malcolm commented: “The past summer’s exploration program was the first time that any drilling has ever been completed on the Goodman property, which is just 8 kilometres southwest from Victoria Gold’s Eagle Gold project. We verified the gold in bedrock potential of the area and identified significant targets for follow up for the upcoming field season. In particular, basal till anomalies identified in RC drilling and our IP geophysical survey indicate a large target hosted within the felsic Murphy’s Intrusion. We look forward to continued exploration of this highly prospective project.”
The Project covers an area of roughly 19 x 5 kilometres, located 40 kilometres northwest of the village of Mayo, and is accessible by a government-maintained all-season road. The Project is in the Mayo mining district, and is contiguous with Victoria Gold’s Eagle Gold Project (Proven & Probable Reserves 2.67 Moz Au (Victoria Gold Corp. Feasibility Study, October 26, 2016)), along the interpreted extension of the Potato Hills Trend. The Project is also proximal to Alexco Resources’ Keno Hill Silver District project and Golden Predator’s Gold Dome project.
The 2017 work program consisted of:
Reverse Circulation Drilling
Eleven drillholes were completed for a total of 850 metres of drilling, targeting geophysical and geochemical anomalies within hornfelsed metasediments surrounding the Murphy’s Intrusion.
Soil sampling, prospecting, and geological mapping
Induced Polarization Geophysical Survey
NI-43-101 Technical Report
Carl Schulze, P.Geo, of Aurora Geosciences completed an independent technical Property of Merit report on the Goodman Project on October 13, 2017.

Kelly Malcolm, P.Geo, President and CEO of Generic Gold, is a Qualified Person, as that term is defined by Canadian regulatory guidelines under National Instrument 43-101, supervised the exploration program and has read and approved the technical information contained in this press release. Drilling was completed using a track-mounted reverse circulation drill, utilizing the ODEX DHH drill system and 2 7/8” diameter hole diameter. One third of each 5 foot drill run was taken for analysis. Analyses were completed at ALS Minerals, an ISO Certified lab, using industry standard methods. The Company's quality control checks include the insertion of standard reference materials and blank samples to monitor the precision and accuracy of the assay data.
