In connection with the Offering, the Company paid an aggregate amount
of $55,640 in cash fees to certain eligible arm's length persons and

Warrants"). Each Finder Warrant is exercisable into a Unit at an
exercise price of $0.25 per Unit for a period of twenty-four (24)
months from the closing of the Offering. The Finder Warrants and the
securities underlying the Finder Warrants issuable upon due exercise
of the Finder Warrants will all be subject to a statutory hold period
expiring four months and one day from the closing of the Offering.  
On October 19, 2012 and November 2, 2012 the Company announced the
closing of a private placement having raised aggregate gross proceeds
in the amount of $932,632.40 through the issuance of an aggregate of
4,663,162 Units. The closing of today's Offering, together with the
October, 2012 private placement, represents aggregate gross proceeds
of $2,028,812.40 to the Company.  
Cancana is also pleased to announce that, in conjunction with the
financing, the Board of Directors of the Company has appointed Andrew
Male, currently the Chief Executive Officer of Cancana, to the office
of President of the Company.  
Andrew Male, President and CEO of Cancana, commented: "I am pleased
to accept appointment to the office of President in addition to my
position as CEO. I would like to thank the Board of Directors for
their confidence in me as we move forward and begin to transition
from exploration to production." Mr. Male further noted that "that
the completion of this private placement in conjunction with our
earlier financing announced in October 2012, signifies, in
management's view, the market's validation of our business strategy
and the future prospects of our operations in Brazil."  
All securities issued pursuant to the Offering, including the Common
Shares and Warrants underlying the Units and the Common Shares
underlying the Warrants are subject to a four (4) month and one (1)
day statutory hold commencing from closing. The Offering is subject
to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance of requisite regulatory filings.
