Generic Gold intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to incur Canadian exploration expenses (the "Qualifying Expenditures") on its properties located in Yukon, Canada. Generic Gold will renounce the Qualifying Expenditures to subscribers of the Flow-Through Units for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.

The securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four month and one day statutory hold period. Completion of the Offering is also subject to the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
