St. John’s Newfoundland and Labrador – Vulcan Minerals Inc. (“the Company” – “Vulcan” TSX-V:VUL) announces that  Investcan Energy Corporation (Investcan), the operator of petroleum permits 96-105, 03-106, and 03-107 in western Newfoundland, have relinquished the permits back to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
