Strongbow Commences Ground Geophysical Surveys at the Inza Project, British Columbia

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 2, 2009) - Strongbow Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SBW) is pleased to announce it has commenced a program of ground geophysical surveys at its wholly owned Inza copper-gold porphyry target in central British Columbia. A recently completed field investigation has confirmed the presence of wide spread alteration and disseminated sulphide mineralization within the area of a coincident multi-element soil geochemical and regional magnetic anomaly. Please refer to Strongbow news release #09-04 for further background on the Inza property. The current program will take advantage of excellent access offered by a series of logging roads and will consist of ground magnetic and induced-polarization (IP) surveys. Line cutting is presently underway with the geophysical surveys expected to start during the week of July 6th.

Strongbow also reports that metallurgical testwork on the Company's Nickel King project is nearing completion. The Company expects to receive the final results and recommendations from the testwork by the middle of this month.

The Company would also like to clarify that a cease trade order issued by the British Columbia Securities Commission earlier this week for a company named Strongbow Resources Inc. has nothing to do with Strongbow Exploration Inc. and that the two companies are completely unrelated.

Strongbow's exploration programs are conducted under the supervision of David Gale, P.Geo. (BC), Vice-President of Exploration for Strongbow and a Qualified Person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101.
