Canasia Industries Corporation: Applies for Additional Coal Permits Near Goldsource Mines Inc in Saskatchewan

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2008) - Canasia Industries Corporation ("Canasia") (TSX VENTURE:CAJ) (PINK SHEETS:CANSF) (FRANKFURT:45C) announces that it has applied for approximately 35,000 acres of additional coal permits in the proximity of Goldsource Mines Inc's recently announced potential coal discovery (May 5, 2008) in East Central Saskatchewan. Canasia has already made permit applications in this region and has received a letter of comfort from the Saskatchewan Government stating that Canasia has priority in a significant portion of the coal applications applied for to date.

Corporate Update:

Recently, Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd. informed Canasia that the Eyehill Creek Potash permit applications have been processed and have received final government approval (June 2, 2008). These permits encompass 453,058 acres of lands prospective for potash located on the Saskatchewan, Alberta borders. The Potash-bearing beds of the Prairie Evaporite Formation are shown to project into the Eyehill Creek Property by Hamilton (1971), while Hamilton and Olson (1994) document a Potash Showing on the property. Most of the recorded Potash Exploration in Alberta occurred between 1965 and 1968. The Company believes that there is potential for the discovery of Potash occurrences within the Eyehill Creek Property. Canasia plans to complete a National Instrument 43-101 compliant report in the future. Readers should note that the information on historic work performed on the property disclosed on this release was completed prior to implementation of National Instrument 43-101, therefore the results spoken of do not comply with modern reporting standards and should not be relied upon until such time as additional work is completed on the property.

Joint venture representatives have just returned from Reed Lake, Manitoba after meeting with parities needed to advance the project including line cutting, ground geophysics, permitting and drilling. A drill program is expected to commence in the coming weeks on this copper/gold prospect.

Graeme Sewell, a director of Canasia stated, "Management's mandate is to attempt to build significant land holdings in areas that are in high demand and have substantial upside growth potential to Canasia. Applying for additional coal permits is an attempt to build our potential land position to over 100,000 acres of coal permits in close proximity to a potential significant new discovery by Goldsource. Not only is Canasia attempting to increase the Saskatchewan coal acreage, but management has built considerable land positions in potash and copper as well as holding gold prospects. Management plans to initiate a work program on the potash claims this month. Also management expects to be drilling shortly on our Reed Lake prospect in Manitoba that is bordering VMS Ventures property where they have recently had intercepts (May 22, 2008), including 18.99 metres (62.3 feet) of 7.1 per cent copper and 0.17 per cent zinc. Canasia has an interest in just under 200,000 acres in the Reed Lake Prospect."
