Cavan Ventures Announces Proposed Share Consolidation

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 12, 2011) - Cavan Ventures Inc. ("Cavan" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CVN) announced today that, subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance and shareholder approval, it will implement a consolidation of its issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of ten (10) old shares for one (1) new share or such lesser ratio as the board deems appropriate (the "Consolidation"). As at the close of business on November 25, 2011, there were a total of 26,371,176 common shares of the Company issued and outstanding. If the Consolidation is completed, the number of shares outstanding will be 2,637,118, or some greater number, if a consolidation ratio of less than ten (10) to one (1) is chosen by the board of directors. Shareholder approval for the Consolidation will be sought at the upcoming special meeting of shareholders scheduled for January 9, 2012 (the "Meeting"). The Company is pursuing the Consolidation as management believes that the Consolidation will enhance the Company's ability to complete future equity financings.

Additionally, at the Meeting the Company proposes to change its name from "Cavan Ventures Inc." to "CanMetals Exploration Corp." or to such other name as determined by the directors of the Company, and that is acceptable to the British Columbia Registrar of Companies and the TSX Venture Exchange.
