VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 21, 2009) - CNNC International Limited ("CNNC") and Western Prospector Group Ltd. ("Western") (TSX VENTURE:WNP) announced today that CNNC's indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, First Development Holdings Corporation (the "Offeror") has extended its offer to acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Western.
