InvestmentPitch.com has produced a "video news alert" about Cancana based on
this report. If this link is not enabled, please visit www.InvestmentPitch.com
and enter "Cancana" in the search box.
The report focused on Cancana's 45,000 hectare manganese bearing claims in
Rondonia, Brazil, which are mainly contiguous and adjacent to already producing
operations. The property is easily accessible year round via paved roads.
The Technical Report, released on January 15th, and available on www.Sedar.com,
increased the inferred resource from 8,775 tonnes to 35,000 tonnes, with an
average manganese grade of 54%. This was based on an area of only 4.4 hectares
and within 3 metres from the
Steel manufacturing accounts for 97.5% of the global demand for manganese, with
Brazil currently a net importer. In 2011, the global production of manganese
reached 17.7 million metric tonnes, in correlation with the production of steel
which hit a new record high that year.
Euro Pacific lists several reasons for putting Cancana on your watch list,
* All manganese assays to date have shown "high grade" between 48 to 54%
* Mineralization is directly on surface clasts and large boulders, and ore can
be shipped directly without further concentration
* Local market prices average $280 per tonne FOB
* Cancana's main focus is to process surface manganese for direct shipping
* Exploration work on the manganese hosting vein structures will continue with
the aim to significantly expand resources
* Bulk sampling and trial mining will commence this quarter, with initial
production of 18,000 to 20,000 tonnes of ore expected to be direct shipped
in 2013, which at today's market prices would result in revenues of
approximately $5 million
* Future production is targeted at over 100,000 tonnes of manganese per year
Cancana currently trades at $0.32, and with approximately 32 million shares
outstanding, is capitalized at $10 million.
