Amendments to Executive Officer Employment Agreements and Stay Incentive Grants

Effective December1, 2018, General Moly,Inc. (the “Company”) entered into amendments to its employment agreements with Bruce D. Hansen, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Robert I. Pennington, the Company’s Chief Operating Officer and R. Scott Roswell, the Company’s Chief Legal Officer (the “Employment Agreement Amendments”). The Employment Agreement Amendments provide for additional temporary base salary reductions for Messrs.Hansen, Pennington and Roswell, in addition to the temporary salary reductions that were already in effect. The additional temporary base salary reductions, which are set forth below, were approved by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Compensation Committee”) and are effective as of December1, 2018:

The Employment Agreement Amendments provide that the reduced base salary shall not be used for purposes of calculating any severance payments due to any executive under his employment agreement. Instead, the executive’s severance payment, if any, would be determined by reference to his base salary as in effect prior to all temporary reductions.

The base salary for Amanda Corrion, the Company’s Controller and Principal Accounting Officer, is not subject to the temporary salary reductions and remains $155,000.

In addition, the Company and each of its named executive officers, including Messrs.Hansen, Pennington and Roswell and Ms.Corrion, entered into amendments to the Restricted Stock Unit Agreements covering stay incentive grants to each officer made on January16, 2018 which are scheduled to vest on January16, 2019 (the “RSU Amendments”). The RSU Amendments provide that, upon vesting of the award, shares will be issued to the officer within six months of the vesting date (rather than 30 days).

The foregoing descriptions are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Employment Agreement Amendments, which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3, and the full text of the form of RSU Amendment, which is attached hereto as Exhibit10.4.
