General Metals Corporation President Issues Letter to Shareholders and Investment Community

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - General Metals (OTCBB: GNMT) provided the following letter to the stakeholders from its President, CEO and CFO, Daniel J. Forbush.

September 26, 2011

Dear Shareholders and Friends;

With the Annual General Meeting of the Shareholders just concluded on Friday, September 16, 2011, it's time for an update.

Since my appointment as President in December 2010, we have been focused on building the foundation necessary to achieve significant, sustainable shareholder value. The Board of Directors is unified in purpose and intent while each of us on the team believes strongly in the great financial potential of the Independence Project that all of us in the Company own.

I believe that the foundation is now in place. We have completed a business plan which we expect to be sharing with you in the near future. We have identified a number of funding sources so that we may complete the work of pouring gold from the Independence mineralization. You will be hearing more about this as we develop the final program.

I believe that the foundation is now in place. We have completed a business plan which we expect to be sharing with you in the near future. We have identified a number of funding sources so that we may complete the work of pouring gold from the Independence mineralization. You will be hearing more about this as we develop the final program.

We recognize that it takes a significant amount of money to bring this Project to production and are looking into a number of approaches which will result in minimal dilution to our current shareholders. If any of you would like to participate in the current funding package to minimize your personal dilution at this time give me a call.

Our fundamentals are excellent for building a profitable mining company and we intend to do just that. We know that the market will soon recognize the potential of the resource calculation (compliant with Canadian National Instrument 43-101), that was included in the updated independent, technical report we announced in a press release dated September 8, 2011. It is our sole focus to drive the Project to production and return to our shareholders the value that they deserve.

We are excited about constructing a producing gold mine and we will do it right. Our first priority will be gold production. But with the opportunity to expand our resources -- the deposit being open to the east, north and at depth -- the possibility to double the current numbers is good. Once production has commenced, we will proceed to increase the resource through additional drilling.

To that end, we have initiated the work necessary to bring the current resources into proven and probable reserves category as defined in CNI 43-101 and intend to complete a pre-feasibility study within the coming months. We intend to proceed to bringing the reserves to SEC Industry Guide 7 definitions as soon as permitting becomes imminent as required under the SEC rules.

Best regards,

Daniel J. Forbush, CPA
President, CEO, and CFO
