Canasia Industries Corporation: Geophysical Survey Commences at Reed Lake

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 17, 2010) - Canasia Industries Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CAJ)(OTCBB:CANSF)(FRANKFURT:45C) ("Canasia") wishes to announce that the grid work is now finished at Reed Lake and that the geophysical survey has commenced.

According to the operator, the survey will consist of 46 line kilometers of Time-Domain Electromagnetics at 25 meter spacing and a magnetometer survey at 25 meter spacing. The large Loop Time Domain EM developed by Crone Geophysics and Exploration Ltd. is the same system used in 2007 by HudBay Minerals Inc. ("HudBay") to discover the Lalor Lake deposit at a depth of approximately 800 meters.

The Reed Lake Prospect consists of 55,300 contiguous acres at Reed Lake, Manitoba. The property is strategically located around the VMS Ventures Inc.'s base-metal discovery in the historic and very prolific Flin Flon mining camp, with more than 27 significant mineral deposits continuously discovered over the past 75 years. The most recent discovery is HudBay's Lalor Lake property, with 20 million tonnes of 8.8 per cent zinc.

Negar Towfigh, President of Canasia stated, "Operations continue to move forward on our most important winter drill program. We are anticipating to be drilling by the time the PDAC trade show takes place in early March. At this time Canasia is active on the Clone Gold discovery, that returned grades as high as 44.75 g/t Au over 12.80 metres (announced October 22,2009), as well as the Mexican Gold Prospect, and we anticipate results from both in the coming days."
