TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 20, 2013) - Cancana Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CNY) (the "Company" or "Cancana") is pleased to announce that it has commenced the development of infrastructure and mine site preparatory work needed in order to establish commercial mining operations at its Valdirâo Manganese Mine in Espigao, in the State of Rondonia, Brazil.
On July 15, 2013 Cancana announced that the Departamento Nacional de Produção Mineral, (Department of Mines for Mineral Production), ("DNPM"), had issued a Guia De Utiliacão, or Trial Mining License, ("Guia"), on its 886241/2011 manganese claim, known as "Valdirâo". As a result of the issuance of this Guia, Cancana has now commenced the development of infrastructure at the mine site.
Once the infrastructure is complete, Cancana will immediately commence mining and stockpiling of unprocessed Manganese ore.
Infrastructure will include the establishment of a gated access, fencing to delineate roadways and areas of mining, grading and access roads and traversing road cuts across hillside and mining area for equipment access. To facilitate this work, Cancana has hired contract-mining crews to execute the work in conjunction with Cancana's own staff.
Cancana anticipates that this preparatory and infrastructure work shall take approximately 10 days to complete the initial stages and then as mining commences there will be ongoing and continued work in order to maintain access and establish new areas and extensions for access throughout the Valdirâo mining area.
The Valdirâo mine site is situated on an area of approximately 5 hectares with an incline to the top of a ridge. Cancana, as part of its infrastructure planning has commissioned the manufacturing of 2 dry screens, which are transportable, and which the soils and Manganese ore will be screened through initially. The void spacing on these screens is 15cm on screen 1 and 7 cm on screen 2. The soil and ore will be loaded onto these screens, agitated manually to extract larger lump ore, after which stockpiles of ore will be created. Finer screening, crushing, washing and final sizing will be completed at a later date.
Andrew Male, President & CEO of Cancana, commented; "The commencement of the development of the infrastructure and mine site preparatory work, is a major step towards the commencement of mining. We are very excited about this progress as it is another milestone towards becoming a producing mine."
