Canasia Industries Corporation: Awarded Coal Permits From Saskatchewan Government

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 18, 2008) - Canasia Industries Corporation ("Canasia") (TSX VENTURE:CAJ)(OTCBB:CANSF)(FRANKFURT:45C) has received approval from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Energy and Resources for nine coal permits covering 4,000 hectares (approximately 9,884 acres). These permits are in close proximity to a recent coal discovery made by Goldsource Mines Inc. Canasia has received partial applications to date from the Saskatchewan Government and management anticipates receiving additional permits in the near future. Once a response has been received on all applications, the board will establish a work plan for the coal permits that have been accepted.

Canasia's management is also anticipating the drill program at Reed Lake to start up in early January 2009. An announcement will be made once Canasia receives confirmation from the operator.

Negar Towfigh, President of Canasia stated, "Despite the choppy market conditions Canasia is moving forward on multiple prospects. During this investment period management wants to make sure that Canasia's shareholders know that management is committed to following through on its various drill programs."
