General Minerals Corporation Announces Change in Date of Annual Meeting of Shareholders

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 30, 2006) - General Minerals Corporation ("GMC") (TSX:GNM) announced today that the date of its Annual Meeting of Shareholders will be changed from June 6, 2006 to June 27, 2006. GMC was advised earlier today by its transfer agent, CIBC Mellon Trust Company, that, inadvertently, its proxy-related materials had not been sent to its beneficial shareholders. In the interests of good investor relations and to provide all shareholders (both registered and beneficial) with an opportunity to have their shares represented at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders, GMC has determined to delay the date of the Annual Meeting of Shareholders until Tuesday, June 27, 2006 so that all shareholders will have an opportunity to participate in the Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

Registered shareholders should have already received GMC's proxy-related materials and are in the process of being sent an Amended Notice of Annual Meeting advising of the change of the date of the meeting. Beneficial shareholders are in the process of being sent the original proxy-related materials that were sent to registered shareholders, the Amended Notice of Annual Meeting and a voting instruction form from ADP Investor Communications.
