ENCORE RENAISSANCE Encounters New Vein and Adds a Second Shift at Mine

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 21, 2010) - ENCORE RENAISSANCE RESOURCES CORP. (TSX VENTURE:EZ) (FRANKFURT:OUH1) (PINK SHEETS:ERRCF)

Encore Renaissance Resources Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EZ) reports that one of the new veins previously announced December 10, 2009 was encountered while in the underground development of the decline and widened appreciably. The vein has sulphides similar to those mined in the open pit area last fall.

In light of the discovery of this new vein encountered while mining underground, the company has added an additional daily shift at the mine site to develop this zone as well as continue the decline towards the known main veins. Drilling to test the continuity of the veins at depth and to identified additional veins that host mineralization is planned in the near future. This will assist in delineating the resource, and ultimately supporting a resource calculation as additional shipments to Kinross continue.

Michael Mulberry, President of Encore states, "As we continue to move deeper down into the underground workings of the mine, the drifting has uncovered additional highly prospective veins. We are now ramping up operations at the site from one shift per day to two shifts per day. At this point due to holiday slowdowns and mining infrastructure construction, we are now anticipating that the first run of the material that is at the Kinross facility and future material shipped will be processed within 60 days barring any unforeseen issues. Clearly we are moving forward on an increased level at the Bonaparte Mine and management is optimistic about how operations will progress and impact Encore in the short and long term at the mine site."

Encore is a well diversified junior with projects that include its flagship property, The Bonaparte Gold Mine, located near Kamloops, British Columbia. Encore also has approximately 5,200 contiguous acres bordering Underworld Resources in the Yukon, approximately 160,000 contiguous acres of land prospective for lithium in Alberta, and 6,660 acres of land in the Stewart Mining Region of British Columbia.
