Secova Contracts InnovExplo and Mr. Ali Ben Ayad at Duvay

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - April 07, 2016) - Secova Metals Corp. (TSX VENTURE: SEK) ("Secova" or the "Company") is pleased to report that it has contracted InnovExplo and M. Ali Ben Ayad to work at its Duvay Gold Project in Amos, Quebec.

Secova has reached an agreement with InnovExplo (http://innovexplo.com/en/home) for the preparation of the data compilation at The Duvay Project. InnovExplo is located in Val d'Or Quebec, about an hour drive from the Duvay project. Their location is quite convenient with regards to saving time and money if they need to go on site. They will produce the computer database with all 330 historical drill logs by entering it in Gems for 3D geological modeling. They also have licenses and experienced users of MapInfo, Leapfrog, GoCAD and all the software needed to retrieve all the data with no extra cost for software, including the very high quality software Gems and Whittle from 3DS GEOVIA. InnovExplo has grown over the years from a well-established regional provider of NI 43-101 compliant technical reports to a national and international service provider in geology, mine engineering and sustainable development.

In March, Abitibi Geophysics (AG) also based in Val d'Or completed an IPower 3D IP survey to cover a significantly large volume of rock and in high resolution. The results of the IP survey will be combined with the 3D model prepared by InnovExplo to identify drilling targets and project field work at Duvay for spring and summer of 2016.

Secova is also pleased to announce that it has contracted Mr. Ali Ben Ayad, P.Geo, MBA to continue the geological compilation work started last year (2015) which has been published on Secova's website, www.secovametals.com. Mr. Ali Ben Ayad is an experienced geologist (more than 25 years) with a Ph.D. in structural geology and metallogeny along with extensive success in identifying mineral resources for precious and/or base metals in different and complex geological environments (Europe, Africa, America and the Philippines). M. Ali Ben Ayad is a Qualified Person (QP) as defined by the NI 43-101. He has also worked with Abitibi Geophysics (former Sagax) in Africa and Canada. He will contribute to find the best exploration targets for Duvay in collaboration with AG and InnovExplo.

"This is an extremely exciting time for Secova and its shareholders," stated Pierre-Jean Lafleur (QP), a director and the company's lead technical person. "Having now come to agreements with Abitibi Geophysics, InvvoExplo and Mr. Ali Ben Ayad, from a technical standpoint the company could not be in a better position. We have excellent synergy with the above noted entities and I'm confident we can all work with the rest of Secova's management to maximize the future success of the company and The Duvay Project."

"Secova is planning to start drilling in May on Duvay to verify targets being outlined now with geophysics and geological compilation. The area studied reaches a depth of 500m below the surface. Current historical work (drilling and exploration mine shafts with 2 levels) reached a depth of about 100m. The exploration work this spring may include bulk samples from surface on the existing gold bearing structures and their continuation on strike," stated Mr. Lafleur.
