General Metals Corporation (OTCBB: GNLM) is out with great news this morning! This morning the company has announced that it is appearing today in the Corporate News Section of Investors Business Daily (IBD), for Wednesday May 2, 2007 print. Furthermore, the company also announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Mikite Gold Resources has received an offer from the Minerals Commission in Ghana to have its 150 sq. km. Nyhinahin mineral concession upgraded from a reconnaissance license to a full prospecting license.

The Nyhinahin mining concession, near Bibiani, Ghana, has the mineral rights for gold, diamonds and base metals. The property shares borders with several major mining companies, including Newmont Mining, Napoli Gold and Dunkwa Continental Goldfields. The district is home to the famous Ashanti Goldfields-Obuasi Mines and is one of the most active exploratory areas in the world. Newmont Mining, alone, plans to spend three billion dollars exploring for gold and developing gold mines in Ghana.

Steve Parent, General Metals President and CEO comments: "This acquisition gives us an operational Ghanaian corporation and a group of interested shareholders familiar with the area to assist in the development. The upgraded status allows us to conduct substantially more exploration than was previously allowed. This infrastructure will enable us to aggressively seek to acquire additional mining properties in the area as they become available. We are currently reviewing a fully permitted gold mine that may be available on favorable terms that is in the Confidentially stage at this time. Having Newmont as a neighbor gives us added confidence as well."

Dan Forbush, CPA,MBA and the Company's CFO, said: "Acquisitions were the method we used at Glamis to rapidly grow the operations of the Company and we are of the same mind here at General. We are studying several near term production opportunities in Nevada, Ghana, Mexico and Columbia at this time."

See the company's press release for full details of the acquisition terms.
