General Metals Gains Exclusive Opportunity to Review 5 Additional Gold Projects in Addition to the Ophelia Gold Mine in Sonora, Mexico Currently Under Confidentiality

General Metals Gains Exclusive Opportunity to Review 5 Additional Gold Projects in Addition to the Ophelia Gold Mine in Sonora,

RENO, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 08/21/07 -- General Metals Corporation (OTCBB: GNMT) (FRANKFURT: GMQ) (the "Company") confirms that in addition to The Ophelia Gold Project, announced July 5, 2007, General Metals has obtained the exclusive right to review and conduct due diligence on 5 additional potential gold projects in the general vicinity of the Ophelia Gold Mine in Sonora, Mexico. The Ophelia mine represents another near term production opportunity for about 200,000 ounces of reported gold. There is exploration potential for up to 500,000 ounces of gold according to reports on work conducted by Canadian Companies who conducted substantial drilling in 1997. The work is not yet SEC Industry Guide 7 compliant, but the Company intends to bring it into compliance should we complete this acquisition. The above projects are now all under Confidentiality Agreements.

These 5 additional mines being studied at this time are either small former producers who shipped high grade ore directly to the smelter or properties that have been previously optioned by large US mining companies more than 15 years ago and not yet put into production. In addition to known gold and silver values, a couple of the mines contain significant values of copper, lead and zinc and have potential for large poly-metallic ore bodies. Management is sending an evaluation team to visit and sample all these projects over the next few weeks. Recommendations on further work programs and/or development work will be evaluated and reported as received.

Company COO Dave Salari, P.Eng., said: "I find the region both a safe and easy place to work and there are talented local geologists and laborers that are not so easy to find in the US and Canada these days. Our plan will be to try to grow this opportunity to an aggregate operating potential in the million ounce of gold range this year through additional acquisitions and exploration. The target here is an open pit operation with low stripping ratio. Reported grades are in the 2+grams/ton range and amenable to heap leaching."
