Encore Renaissance Joins White Gold Area Gold Rush, Yukon Territory

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2010) - ENCORE RENAISSANCE RESOURCES CORP. (TSX VENTURE:EZ)(FRANKFURT:OUH1)(PINK SHEETS:ERRCF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has contracted Equity Exploration Consultants Ltd. of Vancouver, BC to commence an aggressive late-summer exploration program on EZ's 100 quartz claims in the White Gold Area near Whitehorse, Yukon Territory.

EZ's claims are strategically located immediately to the west of the White Gold Discovery area made famous by prospector Shawn Ryan and Underworld Resources. Kinross Gold Corporation has recently committed its resources to this exciting area via a friendly takeover of Underworld Resources. Significant thicknesses of gold mineralization were discovered by Underworld including 3.39 g/t Gold over 104.0 meters, 3.94 g/t Gold over 59.9 metres and 3.59 g/t Gold over 98.3 metres.

The Encore Renaissance property is less than 25 kilometers north of Kaminak Gold Corporation's 'Coffee Prospect' and 'Supremo Gold' discoveries recently announced by Kaminak.

"Gold mineralization at Supremo ranging from 2.11 g/t gold over 14 metres, 3.73 g/t gold over 16 metres and 4.65 g/t gold over four metres consists of several steeply dipping and stacked structures which are all open along trend and at depth," stated Dr. Rob Carpenter, Kaminak's president and chief executive officer. "These results significantly increase the potential for Supremo to host high-grade and bulk-tonnage gold deposits."

Add the recent discovery of ATAC Resources Ltd. 'Rau Gold Discovery' the market is really beginning to focus on the recent exploration activity in this new promising gold district.

Encore Renaissance is very excited to have acquired such a highly prospective property and looks forward to its participation in this present new gold rush that is underway in the Yukon Territory.
