Generic Gold Announces Results of Exploration Program on Its VIP Gold Project, Yukon
Toronto, November 14, 2018 - Generic Gold Corp. (CSE: GGC) (FSE: 1WD) ("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.
|Hole ID||From (m)||To (m)||Length (m)||Au (g/t)|
|GGVIP-18-003||No anomalous values|

The 100 % owned VIP project covers an area of roughly 17 x 13 kilometres, located 120 kilometres south of Dawson, and is accessible by helicopter, nearby fixed wing aircraft airstrips, and nearby barge ports along the Yukon River. The project is in the White Gold district, approximately 20 kilometres west of Goldcorp Inc.'s Coffee gold deposits (2.16 Moz Au P&P Reserves, 0.78 Moz Au M&I Resources, 1.15 Moz Au Inferred Resources (Goldcorp Mineral Reserves & Resources, June 30, 2017)), along the interpreted extension of the Coffee Creek and Big Creek fault systems.
