Hemis Alaska Gold Exploration Program Initiated

    LAS VEGAS, June 8 /CNW/ - (OTCbb: HMSO, Frankfurt: XZA) Hemis Corporation
is an international resource company with three exploration properties in
Mexico and one in Alaska. Hemis' Santa Rita property in Mexico has an earn-in
agreement with Goldcorp Inc. (TSX:G)(NYSE:  GG) through Goldcorp's Mexican
subsidiary Glamis Exploration.
    The Anchor Gold project is in the Cook Inlet of Alaska and is one of
Hemis' premium exploration properties. It is believed that due to the size of
the project area it could have great potential.
    A preliminary oceanographic survey was begun last week on the Anchor Gold
project. On board instrumentation included a high-precision cesium magnometer,
a fathometer, side-scan sonar and a StrataBox(R). The StrataBox is an
instrument capable of imaging through sediments up to 40 meters thick. The
survey boat used a GPS control system and also had a bottom sampler on board.
This survey was intended to both confirm the results of Aspen Exploration's
previous work and to provide baseline information for a drilling program
planned for later in the 2007 exploration season.
    The oceanographic survey indicated that the water depth in the area of
interest was less than 10 meters in many of the areas of interest. This is an
ideal water depth from the standpoint of future exploration. The magnetometer
survey confirmed the position and strength of airborne magnetic surveys taken
twenty years ago by Aspen Exploration. Dr. Douglas Oliver, the chief geologist
for Hemis Corporation, commented that this was a primary goal of the program.
"Magnetite and gold often occur together in placer deposits because of their
density. Verifying the off-shore magnetic anomalies is a big step forward in
advancing this project," Dr. Oliver stated.
    Due to high waves at the time, it was not yet possible to use the
StrataBox or the bottom sampler. The oceanographic survey will be concluded in
July and may be expanded to take into account new data currently being
    In other developments, Earthfield Technology has finished processing new
aeromagnetic data purchased from Fugro Airborne Systems. This data supersedes
the original survey taken by Aspen Exploration. It is hoped that the new
survey will have both better geographic controls and will resolve smaller
scale features. Negotiations are also ongoing with contractors for the late
summer drilling program.
