    VANCOUVER, Oct. 17 /CNW/ - Canasia Industries Corporation (the "Company")
wishes to announce that the Company has commenced permitting on the Jumbo
Prospect. These permits will allow Canasia's geological crew access to the
property to perform an I.P. survey and further mapping and trenching over the
Company's JBZ1 and JBZ2 zones of known mineralization. J.B. Price Geological
Consultants Inc. recommended a program targeting theses areas to further
define drill targets. The Jumbo property is centered approximately
14 kilometers northeast of the town of Slocan, in the prolific Slocan Mining
Division of SW British Columbia. The geology, stratigraphy, and potential of
this type of gold-silver mineralization are for the "bonanza" type of high
grade precious metal ore bodies.
    Graeme Sewell, director of Canasia stated, "Management is very encouraged
to begin permitting the Jumbo Prospect. Canasia has developed a portfolio of
world class properties including the recently acquired Reed Lake claims in
Manitoba, which border next to VMS Ventures Inc.'s (VMS: TSXV) new discovery."
