As previously announced on April 30, 2013, Cancana and Rio Madeira agreed to an extension of the exclusive Memorandum of Understanding, ("MOU"), announced on February 8th, 2013 between Cancana and Rio Madeira for the 100% acquisition of the Rio Madeira share capital and all of its associated assets, mineral claims and operations. Pursuant to the terms of the MOU, this acquisition is subject to the successful completion of due diligence, financing and receipt of all applicable regulatory approvals, and was to expire on April 30, 2013. However, on April 29th 2013, both Cancana and Rio Madeira agreed to an extension for the completion of the acquisition by no later than June 24, 2013. This acquisition or closing date was subject to the achievement of certain specific milestones to be met within this time frame, including the negotiation and finalization of the terms of the definitive purchase agreement in respect of the acquisition by June 17, 2013.

Cancana and Rio Madeira have completed and satisfied the majority of the conditions required within the MOU and anticipate that the balance of the requirements will be met on or before June 28, 2013. Accordingly, the parties have agreed that under the terms of the proposed SPA that the parties anticipate will be signed on June 28, 2013, that Cancana will acquire a minimum of 75.1% of Rio Madeira and anticipate a closing date on or before July 31, 2013.
