Item 1.02                    Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.


As previously disclosed, General Moly, Inc. (the “Company”) and Amer International Group Co., Ltd. (“AMER”) entered into an Investment and Securities Purchase Agreement dated April 17, 2015, as amended by the First Amendment dated November 2, 2015, the Second Amendment dated August 7, 2017 and the Third Amendment dated September 30, 2017 (the “Purchase Agreement”).


On August 1, 2019, the Company received a letter from Amer dated July 30, 2019, purporting to terminate the Purchase Agreement.  AMER has alleged uncured material adverse effects and alleged breaches of the Agreement by the Company (which include concerns related to US/China relations, concerns regarding the delay in obtaining environmental permits and solvency concerns). The Company believes such assertions to be inaccurate and wholly without merit.


On July 29, 2019, the Company provided formal notice to AMER that the conditions to closing of Tranche 3 under the Purchase Agreement had been satisfied, and that AMER would have two business days (until the close of business on Tuesday, July 30, 2019) to fund and close Tranche 3 under the Purchase Agreement.  AMER has failed to timely fund and close Tranche 3 and is now in default with respect to its obligations under the Purchase Agreement.  As such, the Company believes that AMER’s attempted termination of the Purchase Agreement is ineffective.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Company has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
