VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 19, 2012) - Cancana Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CNY) (the "Company" or "Cancana") is pleased to announce that it has acquired further mineral claims.
Cancana has registered a further 9,868.41 Hectares of mineral claims adjacent to its existing claim package in Rondonia, Brazil. The Company continues to secure mineral claims in an effort to increase its land bank and mineral claim size.
The new mineral claim secured is contiguous with the existing claims already held by the Company. There has been no research or exploration work completed by Cancana to date on this claim, however Cancana can report that there are existing Manganese operations on the opposite side to the contiguous claim boundary. Therefore there is no reason to believe that this claim will not be Manganese bearing.
The claim was officially transferred by the Department National Production Minerals, ("DNPM"), to M.L.B.Noqueira Mineracao, ("MLB"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Cancana, on September 17, 2012. The Company plans to conduct rudimentary prospecting and sampling at surface, as well as ad hoc pitting, under supervision by Cancana Management between late 2012 and or early 2013.
With the acquisition and registration of this new claim, Cancana now has 37,111.42 Hectares of contiguous and near contiguous claims in the region. All claims sampled and researched to date have resulted in Manganese occurrences showing at surface and in vein structures. General assay results to date have shown grading between 48% to 52% Manganese.
Mr. Andrew Male, CEO, remarks; "The addition of this claim and the substantial increase to the Company's claim package goes a long way to establishing Cancana as potentially a pre-eminent producer of Manganese Lump Ore in the region as we transition from exploration to production. We will continue to seek additional claims that will increase this claim package, complete research and exploration and then refine the economically viable claims for ultimate production and sales of Manganese Lump Ore."
Cancana Resources Corp. is an exploration stage company that is transitioning into production with assets in Brazil and Canada. The Company has been seeking projects that expand its resource base and provide for near term production and revenue. All available resource reports and information on the Company's properties are located on the Company website.
Issued on behalf of the Board of Directors of Cancana Resources Corp.
