Cancana Announces Deferral of a Resolution from Upcoming Special Shareholders Meeting

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/15/14 -- Cancana Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE: CNY) (the "Company" or "Cancana") announces that the board of directors of the Company, after discussions with Ferrometals (as defined below) and The Sentient Group, has determined to withdraw and defer the shareholder vote on the special resolution ("Resolution #2") with respect to the transfer of the Company's interest in MLB (as defined below) from the business to be voted on at the special meeting of the shareholders of Cancana (the "Meeting") to be held on Thursday, April 17, 2014, until the annual general meeting of the shareholders of the Company which will be scheduled to be held on or about July 17, 2014.

As further described in Cancana's management information circular dated March 18, 2014 (the "Circular"), at the Meeting shareholders of Cancana were to be asked to consider, and if thought fit, approve a special resolution relating to the transfer by the Company of 100% of its interest in M L B de Nogueira EPP (referred to as M.L.B. de Nogueira Mineracao Ltda in the Circular) ("MLB") to Rio Madeira Comercio Importacao e Exportacao de Minerios Ltda ("Rio Madeira"), in connection with the operation of Rio Madeira as a joint venture between Cancana and Ferrometals BV ("Ferrometals"), which is currently owned by Ferrometals, a special purpose vehicle established by The Sentient Group.

Cancana's board has determined to withdraw Resolution #2 after extensive discussions with Ferrometals in order for the Company to complete a restructuring of MLB in accordance with Brazilian law. This restructuring will allow Cancana to complete the disposition of the mining claims of MLB (the "MLB Mining Claims") into Rio Madeira in the most tax efficient manner, whether by way of a share or asset sale (the "Restructuring"). Cancana has a contractual agreement with a Brazilian national pursuant to which Cancana can exercise control and gain beneficial ownership of the MLB Mining Claims. The MLB Mining Claims are not currently held through the 100% ownership of the share capital of a Brazilian subsidiary known as M.L.B. de Nogueira Mineracao Ltda. as has been previously disclosed by Cancana. As part of the Restructuring, it is anticipated that Cancana will be completing the final steps in establishing a Brazilian corporate subsidiary entity pursuant to which the MLB Mining Claims will be transferred and this process is estimated to be completed in approximately 90 days.

Andrew Male, CEO of Cancana commented that "While it would have been ideal to complete the transfer of the mining claims of MLB into Rio Madeira concurrently with closing the financing with Ferrometals, the board of Cancana felt it imperative to defer this aspect of the Meeting until Cancana's interests are structured in the most optimal manner."

The withdrawal of this item of business will not affect the validity of the proxy form enclosed with the Circular. Shareholders wishing to complete and lodge a proxy in relation to the Meeting do not need to indicate their voting instructions on Resolution #2. Cancana confirms that, at the Meeting, the shareholders will be asked to vote on the first resolution set forth in the Circular with respect to the approval of the Rio Madeira joint venture, the creation of Ferrometals as a control person of the Company and the proposed financings of Cancana by Ferrometals which is anticipated to close on or before April 22, 2014 subsequent to shareholder approval.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
