RENO, NV, September 11, 2013 - (ACCESSWIRE) - General Metals Corporation (OTCQB: GNMT) (http://www.generalmetalscorporation.com/) released today new details on experimental recovery work conducted on mineralized material from the Company's flagship Independence Project near Battle Mountain, Nevada.. Following the addition of selected reagents to a bottle roll test carried out in February of this year at McClelland Laboratories, Inc., of Sparks, Nevada, silver recoveries increased by almost 20%. The Company's metallurgical consultant, Dr. Thom Seal PE & QP, who directed the testing and recommended the reagent modification, noted: "The single bottle roll test had an improved silver extraction of about 19% over a parallel standard cyanide bottle roll test on another split of the same sample. While this is only one test on a grab sample, it does show improved silver extraction and merits further test work on a representative Independence mine sample."
Company CEO Dan Forbush echoed Dr. Seal's comments: "Dr. Thom Seal is one the country's leading experts in precious metals metallurgy and recovery processes. We are very appreciative of the effort he has put into helping us identify the proper reagent chemistry for our ore body. As we move the Project closer to production we will be placing increased emphasis on expanding and refining the recovery work initiated by Dr Seal, which in the long run will pay significant dividends to the economics of the Independence."
