Farmout Update

On March 31, 2006, Canoro entered into a letter of intent with Brownstone Ventures Inc. to farm out 15% of its participating interest in the AA-ONN-2003/2 and AA-ON/7 exploration blocks. On AA-ONN-2003/2, Canoro's partners have waived their right of first refusal. Canoro plans to submit an application to the Government of India shortly to have the 15% participating interest transferred to Brownstone. On government approval, Canoro's participating interest in AA-ONN-2003/2 will be reduced from 30% to 15%.

For AA-ON/7, after the expiry of the partner's right of first refusal period, Canoro and Brownstone have mutually agreed not to proceed with the farmout of the 15% interest. Canoro's participating interest in AA-ON/7 will remain at 65%.

Canoro and Brownstone have agreed to bid together for exploration blocks under India's NELP VI licensing round. Bids are to be submitted by September 15, 2006. The Government of India anticipates awarding the blocks to successful bidders early in 2007.
