Cadan Completes Resource Definition Drilling at Its Tagpura Porphyry Skarn Copper-Gold Project First Hole Intercepts 106 Meters @ 0.65% Copper Including 31 Meters @ 1.21% Copper

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2011) - CADAN RESOURCES CORPORATION (TSX VENTURE:CXD)(FRANKFURT:A0MZ25) ("Cadan" or the "Company") is pleased announce the completion of resource definition drilling at its Tagpura porphyry skarn on its Comval property located in East Mindanao, Philippines.

This drilling program is within the zone where a potential tonnage of 10 to 15 million tonnes has been reported previously (See News Release dated Aug 5th, 2008). The completion of this drilling program, together with previous drilling and open pit bench sampling, provide a data base of sufficient density to allow the upgrading of the potential tonnage to that of a measured resource.

"We are very excited that the Comval property continues to deliver great exploration results. The Tagpura porphyry located on the eastern portion of the property becomes more attractive with the continued gold and copper assays we are receiving on the skarn," says Robert Butchart, President and CEO. "Our plans are to increase drilling on the Tagpura porphyry as well as follow-up with a district sized exploration strategy on Comval."

Using the 100% company owned LY 24 drill rig, the first hole, Diamond Hole TGD 108, was drilled to 139.10m and was cored from the surface. The second hole, TGD 109, was drilled to 148.80m and was also cored from surface. In-house preliminary XRF assay results have now been received for TGD 108, with the defined mineralized zone averaging 0.65% Cu from 0 to 106meters. High-grade magnetite skarn was intersected from 33m to 64m and assayed 1.21% Cu for the 31meters. A complete report will be issued when assay results from a certified laboratory have been received.

Visual inspection of the high-grade skarn zone, from the core, shows magnetite and garnet skarn hosting chalcopyrite and chalcocite mineralization (To see Figure 1 and 2, please visit the following link:
