    And issues options

    TSX Venture Exchange Symbol: SNV

    TORONTO, Oct. 12 /CNW/ - SONIC Technology Solutions Inc. ("SONIC" or "the
Company"; TSX-V:SNV) today reported that in the third quarter, its
wholly-owned subsidiary Sonic Environmental Solutions Inc. ("Sonic") had
treated a further 1,000 tonnes of soil at its current project site. This is
the last soil to be treated in the current phase of the project.
    As announced October 11th, Sonic will now be working with its licensed
operating partner for Canada, Quantum-Murray LP, on a number of possible new
projects. Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) recently approved a
project to demonstrate the first fully integrated version of the Sonic
Treatment System on a single site (SDTC News Release July 5, 2007). The Sonic
Treatment System comprises PCB extraction and PCB de-chlorination stages which
can be fully integrated at larger sites.
    The Sonic PCB de-chlorination system has been used successfully to
complete Sonic's PCB treatment project at the Juker Holdings property in
Delta, British Columbia. Approximately 3,000 tonnes of sediment and soil was
cleaned from this site and the remediated site was returned to the owner and
is now available for future development. Sonic was the main contractor.
    Larry Rodricks, Vice President of Site Remediation for Sonic commented
"The Sonic Treatment System has performed extremely well on our most recent
project with treatment rates in excess of 1,500 tonnes per month. The System
has been very reliable and the treatment rate has been increased despite the
significant variation in soil and contamination conditions compared to the
original test soil."
    Under the agreements with Quantum Murray key personnel from Sonic will be
transferred to Quantum Murray to ensure that there is zero learning curve;
this will include Mr. Larry Rodricks. Mr. Rodricks will join Sonic's Technical
and Business Advisory Boards maintaining strong operational and technical
input.
    The Company also announced that it has granted 2,500,000 stock incentive
options to new consultants and new members of the Technical and Business
Advisory Boards and staff that are currently working on the energy
developments, senior management and Board members. These options granted will
be exercisable at $0.45 per share.
