MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 1, 2010) - Cancor Mines (CNSX:KCR) is pleased to announce that it has received proceeds of $690,750 from the exercise of 6,907,500 warrants issued pursuant to a private placement offering that closed in March and May 2010. The warrants were exercisable at $0.10 per share and expired on September 30, 2010. The Company has issued 6,907,500 common shares in exchange for the exercised warrants which represent 69 % of the total number of warrants issued pursuant to the offering and exercisable at $0.10 per share.
