CARMANAH COMMENCES PHASE 1 EXPLORATION PROGRAM ON LOLJUH PROJECT

ANCOUVER, B.C. CANADA, JULY 21, 2022, CARMANAH MINERALS CORP. (CSE: CARM) (“Carmanah” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has engaged Precision Geosurveys Inc. (“Precision”) to conduct an airborne magnetic gradient and radiometric survey on the Loljuh Gold Project (“Loljuh Project”).

The Loljuh Project covers a surface area of 1656.73 hectares and is 40 km south of the community of Smithers, British Columbia, west of the community of Houston, BC, within the Omineca Mining Division.

The program is anticipated to consist of a minimum of 185 line km of low-level magnetic gradient and radiometric surveying utilizing state-of-the-art geophysical instrumentation attached directly to a helicopter. The airborne geophysical survey is expected to help map the exploration essentials of structure, alteration, and lithology. Magnetic gradient data is anticipated to be collected using Precision’s exclusive triple boom system to provide high resolution magnetic data related to the concentration and distribution of magnetic minerals. The Company anticipates radiometric data to be collected at the same time, which may assist with providing insights into the hydrothermal history of the project area by mapping the radioelement geochemistry. The combined survey data is expected to help identify prospective areas for ground follow-up.
