CANCOR MINES: Update on Activities in Algeria

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 25, 2013) - Cancor Mines (CNSX:KCR) and its subsidiaries present an update on gold exploration activities in Algeria.

Due to the current exceptional circumstances in the Sahel, and especially in northern Mali, Cancor Mines Inc. has been forced to temporarily suspend work on all projects related to its licences in the Hoggar region of Algeria.

As these circumstances are beyond the Company's control and constitute a case of force majeure, the Company has notified the supervisory authorities in Algeria to this effect. Force majeure is specifically recognized under the terms of the licenses held by the Company and provide for the automatic extension of the licences for a period corresponding to the duration of the circumstances constituting force majeure.

Accordingly Cancor has secured its titles and intends to redeploy its activities at a later date. The Company has reiterated to the authorities that it intends to respect its commitments by carrying out a drilling campaign within the Tirek North Licence.
