Encore Renaissance Resources Corp. Prepares to De-Water Open Pit at Bonaparte Gold Property for 10,000 Tonne Bulk Test Mining

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 3, 2009) - ENCORE RENAISSANCE RESOURCES CORP. (TSX VENTURE:EZ) (FRANKFURT:OUH1) (PINK SHEETS:ERRCF) Encore Renaissance Resources Corp. ("the Company") announces it has received commitments for the financing needed to meet it's earn-in obligation for the initial 25.5% interest in the Bonaparte Gold Property. Shortly, the Company will complete the subscriptions for said commitments and apply for regulatory approval for the financing, following which the Company will proceed to closing.

This funding will enable the Company to test mine a further bulk sample from the area of the 1994 bulk test which saw 26.2 grams per tonne of gold recovered from 3,425 tonnes of material mined and processed at the Cominco Trail smelter. In conjunction with its proposed drilling program, which will be conducted later this year, this test mining exploration program will enable the Company to delineate the mineralization on the property.

With the snow almost completely gone and full access to the property established, the Company has been able to complete the final water testing to meet the requirements of the BC. Mines Department for its permit and will initiate de-watering of the open pit in preparation for bulk test mining.

The permitting process has commenced for the proposed exploration drilling on the other veins which have reported multi ounce values of gold.

This release has been reviewed by Laurence Stephenson P.Eng, the designated Qualified Person.
