E.G. Capital Inc. Announces Cancellation of Proposed Reactivation Transaction

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 30, 2010) - E.G. Capital Inc. ("EG" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:EGC.H) today announced that it is not proceeding with its proposed Reactivation Transaction with Thanda Resources Inc. ("Thanda") as previously announced on June 21, 2010.

The Corporation entered into a letter agreement with Thanda dated June 11, 2010 (the "Letter Agreement") to complete an amalgamation to form a new company (the "Transaction"). The Transaction, when completed, would have constituted the reactivation transaction of the Corporation, pursuant to the policies of TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the "TSX Venture").

The Corporation completed initial filings with TSX Venture in June 2010. Unfortunately, due to difficult financial markets, the parties have determined that the proposed concurrent equity financing to be completed as a condition to completion of the Transaction cannot be completed at this time. As a result, the Corporation has determined that it is in the best interests of the Corporation to terminate the Letter Agreement.

The Corporation intends to continue to identify and evaluate companies, businesses or assets with a view to completing a reactivation transaction.

Trading of the common shares of the Corporation will resume after NEX and TSX Venture has accepted the withdrawal of the proposed reactivation transaction.

The securities of EG being offered have not been, nor will be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent U.S. registration or an applicable exemption from U.S. registration requirements. This release does not constitute an offer for sale of securities in the United States.

Neither the TSX Venture nor its Regulation Service Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
