Genesis Drilling Returns 8.73 g/t Gold Over 21.35 m From Chevrier Main Zone

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 22, 2018) – Genesis Metals Corp (TSXV: GIS) (“Genesis” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the results from the second phase of drilling completed at the Chevrier gold project (the “Project”) near Chibougamau, Quebec.

Highlights from Main Zone

  • 8.73 g/t Au over 21.35 m including 37.97 g/t Au over 3.00 m in hole GM-17-42
  • 3.59 g/t Au over 22.60 m in a separate zone in hole GM-17-42
  • 4.26 g/t Au over 19.40 m including 8.99 g/t Au over 7.80 m in hole GM-17-48
  • 4.47 g/t Au over 12.45 m within an interval of 1.08 g/t Au over 84.85 m in hole GM-17-46
  • 5.06 g/t Au over 8.45 m and 1.23 g/t Au over 43.00 m in two intervals in hole GM-17-41
  • 4.53 g/t Au over 13.80 m in hole GM-17-44
  • 1.04 g/t Au over 50.05 m including 1.94 g/t Au ov

Brian Groves, CEO of Genesis commented “We are very pleased with these new results as they now appear to define a near surface zone of higher grade with the potential for expansion at depth. We will now focus on refining our geological model for the Main Zone as we work towards an updated global resource for Chevrier in 2018.”

Discussion of Results

  • Holes GM-17-45 and GM-17-46 were drilled to test for extensions to Hole GM-17-09 (2.94 g/t Au over 37.40m – previously reported in Company news release dated October 3, 2017). This drilling has identified a new north-east trending shallow extension of mineralization encountered in Hole GM-17-09. Similarly, the results from Holes GM-17-41 and GM-17-44 define a new deeper south west extension of the mineralization encountered in GM-17-09. This large and well mineralized zone now appears to be defined over a distance of more than 300m. This zone is a priority for geological modeling.
  • The results from the highlighted holes above would suggest an area of shallow higher grade mineralization has been defined and still remains open at depth in the southern part of the Main Zone.
  • The majority of mineralized intercepts reported herein are less than 150 m depth
  • All 18 holes drilled into the Main Zone intersected mineralization with only one hole returning gold grades of less than 1 g/t.
  • More significant drill results are tabulated below.

Note: Mineralized intervals were determined using a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off & are length weighted averages of the gold values. (Samples under the limit of detection (5 ppb Au) are reported to half of the detection limit (2.5ppb) for composites.) True width is estimated to be approximately 65% of the indicated core lengths.

Future Plans

The Company has identified key controls to gold mineralization within the Main Zone. Gold essentially correlates with higher percentages of veins which are themselves hosted in a larger sheared zone characterized by mylonitic texture and strong ankerite-fuchsite-tourmaline-silica alteration.

Using these recently identified criteria Company geologists are focusing on the completion of updated models for gold grade distribution within the Main Zone. Those models will be integral components for a revised global resource estimate due to be completed in 2018.
