    VANCOUVER, Oct. 30 /CNW/ Canasia Industries Corporation (the "Company")
wishes to announce that it has entered into a Letter Agreement to acquire
additional Reed Lake claims in Manitoba.
    This 128,151 acre acquisition now gives the Company a land package in
excess of 194,010 acres that is contiguous to the south and west, and 2,200
acres contiguous to the north of the VMS Ventures Inc. property which on

copper, within 10.50 metres (34.4 feet) of 11.19 per cent copper, within 22.25
metres (72.9 feet) of 7.75 per cent copper, within 43.05 metres (141.2 feet)
of 4.38 per cent copper.
    The Vendors have agreed sell 50% of their interest in MEL 332A comprising
in excess of 74,797 acres and MEL 333A comprising in excess of 53,354 acres.
The purchase price payable by the Company for a 50% legal and beneficial
interest in and to the Minerals Rights is 800,000 common shares of the Company
plus staking costs estimated at $13,000. The shares will be subject to resale
restrictions under applicable securities laws and the rules and policies of
the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company is acquiring the interest in the
property subject to a 1% NSR granted in favour of the Vendors, of which 0.5%
can be purchased at any time for $500,000.
    The Reed Lake volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) mineralized zone is
overlain by distinctive layers of magnetite and chert. The rocks that underlie
and contain the sulphide are moderately to intensely altered felsic volcanic
rocks. The Reed Lake mineralization is typical of other VMS deposits including
those in the prolific Snow Lake camp and the nearby Spruce Point mine,
formerly operated by HudBay Minerals.
    Graeme Sewell, a director of the Company stated, "The Company now has
196,210 acres of land contiguous to a potential new discovery which
constitutes one of the largest contiguous land packages of any company that is
exploring in the region. The Company is now going to actively explore this
acreage with the goal of finding a discovery of our own."

    This agreement is subject to the approval of the TSX-V Exchange.
