Cancana's Joint Venture Brazil Manganese Corporation Closes Acquisition of Manganese Processing Plant and Claims Owned by Eletroligas Ltda's in Espigao do Oeste

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 15, 2014) - Cancana Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CNY) (the "Company" or "Cancana") is pleased to announce that its Brazil joint venture (JV) has closed on the acquisition of Eletroligas Ltda's manganese processing plant and 3 claims totaling 14,986.49 hectares, in Espigao do Oeste, Rondonia, Brazil.

Manganese cobbles have been stockpiled over the last few weeks, from the Jaburi 3 and 5 claims; and the plant will be restarted on September 15, 2014.

With the addition of these 3 claims, the JV now has over 92,073 hectares of high-grade manganese claims in Espigao do Oeste.

Anthony Julien, CEO of Cancana, commented; "It has taken 3 months longer than planned to close this deal due to issues that had to be overcome with landholder surface rights. The JV has taken on the Eletroligas employees and they are working with the management team to ensure that the plant start up goes smoothly. The JV engineering team has already conducted a mass balance and trial production run with good results. With Eletroligas going into production this week, the JV is on track to make the forecast initial production of 8,000 tons for the year."
