The Arrangement

Assuming the Arrangement becomes effective, holders of Cangold Shares will receive 0.05 of a common share of Great Panther (each whole common share, a "Great Panther Share") for each Cangold Share held (such exchange ratio being hereinafter referred to as the "Exchange Ratio"). In addition, each outstanding option and warrant to acquire Cangold Shares will entitle the holder thereof to receive, upon the exercise thereof, 0.05 Great Panther Shares in lieu of each Cangold Share, at a price adjusted in accordance with the Exchange Ratio, and otherwise on the same terms and conditions as the original option or warrant.

Cangold is seeking a final order of the Supreme Court of British Columbia to approve the Arrangement at a hearing expected to be held on May 26, 2015. In addition to the approval of the court, the Arrangement is subject to the satisfaction of other closing conditions customary in a transaction of this nature. It is currently expected that, subject to receipt of all approvals, the transaction will close on or about May 27, 2015.

Such forward-looking information may include, without limitation, statements regarding the completion and expected benefits of the proposed transaction and other statements that are not historical facts. Forward-looking information is based on a number of assumptions and estimates that, while considered reasonable by management based on the business and markets in which Cangold operates, are inherently subject to significant operational, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. Assumptions upon which forward looking information relating to the proposed transaction have been made include that Cangold and Great Panther will be able to satisfy the conditions in the Arrangement Agreement, that no materially adverse change in respect of Cangold or Great Panther has occurred, and that regulatory and court approvals will be obtained.

Although Cangold has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking information, there can be other factors that cause results, performance or achievements not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended.

As a result of these risks and uncertainties, the proposed transaction could be modified, restricted or not completed, and the results or events predicted in these forward looking statements may differ materially from actual results or events. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking information. The forward-looking information in this press release is made as of the date of this press release, and Cangold disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise such information, except as required by applicable law.
