Strata Minerals Inc. Cardabia Phase 1 Exploration Update

TORONTO, Oct. 30, 2012 /CNW/ - Strata Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: SMP) ("Strata" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of its previously announced drilling campaign in connection with the Phase 1 exploration program at the Company's 80% owned Cardabia Phosphate Project (the "Cardabia Project") located near Exmouth in Western Australia.

Drilling commenced in early September and was concluded with 2,283 meters drilled in 74, 3.5 inch air-core holes concentrated along a previously defined outcropping phosphate horizon located in the southeast portion of the Cardabia Project.

Drill holes were sampled on 0.5 meter intervals and logging of drill cuttings is underway.  Samples will be shipped to the Bureau Veritas - Amdel (Minerals) lab in Adelaide, Australia for comprehensive sizing and analysis.  Initial results are expected by year end with the balance of analytics expected in the first quarter of 2013.

In addition to the drill campaign, the Phase 1 exploration program will include reprocessing of historic geophysics data and the extraction and testing of a bulk sample for metallurgical testing.  The precise location and timing of the bulk sample test will be determined following drill hole data compilation and analysis.

Strata's board and management recently met on site at the Cardabia Project to review the results to date and familiarize themselves with local infrastructure. Commenting on the Phase 1 program, Peter Kozicz, President & CEO said, "We are pleased with progress to date. Looking ahead, the focus now turns to logging drill cuttings and the analysis of drill samples. The goal of the Phase 1 program is to adequately test and confirm the potential for the property to host significant phosphate mineralization as suggested by historical drilling and Strata's recent NI 43-101 report."
