VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – July 7, 2022 – Secova Metals Corp. (“Secova” or the “Company”) (CSE: SEK, Frankfurt: N4UP, OTC: SEKZF) is pleased to announce that the Company has engaged Geophysique GPR International Inc. (“GPR”) to conduct a three-part bathymetric mapping survey of the Ottawa River project. The survey will provide detailed data relating to water depth, riverbed topography, underwater features, and the depth of the sediment above the floor of the river. The survey will take place over the three identified target zones and cover an area of approximately 90 metres by 200 meters. The underwater mapping will commence on Monday July 11, 2022, and will be completed in advance of the underwater sampling program beginning one (1) week later.

The work by GPR will provide the Company with detailed data relating to the depth of the water as well as map the underwater features of the riverbed. GPR will use the following three (3) methods of bathymetric surveying to generate the data:

  1. High-density bathymetric surveys with an Edgetech 6205 wide-swath sonar. The wide-angle scanning of the proposed sonar makes it possible to cover a greater width than traditional multibeams. The entire surface to be covered will be surveyed twice for quality control purposes.
  2. Side Scan Sonar (SBL) type acoustic images with the Edgetech 6205 which simultaneously records images during bathymetry passes. The advantage of this method is to visualize the surrounding seabed.
  3. A survey with a 3D Echoscope® sonar from Coda Octopus. The Echoscope® system uses the 3D imagery produced by the sonar to make it possible to document (position, dimension, depth, etc.) in detail the underwater infrastructures.

One other advantage of the Echoscope® is that it provides for sub-bottom profiling (“SBP”) that detects and generates an image to view the layers of sediment and rocks under the water body floor. A transducer sends a sound wave to the water body floor. This sound wave can penetrate the water body floor. The data returned from the sound waves can be mapped to show the layers beneath the water body floor. This data will provide Secova with a better understanding of the depth of the sediment on the riverbed and in turn provide a more detailed scope of the extent of the recoverable salable waste residuals.

The Company is confident that the detailed bathymetric underwater survey will provide the divers with the data to better direct the underwater sampling program commencing the following week. This detailed survey, combined with the advanced technology being used during the sampling process, will allow the Company to quickly establish the presence of metals in the riverbed.
