Encore Renaissance Resources Discovers Three New Mineralized Veins While Preparing Underground Tunnel Towards Main Zone

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 10, 2009) - ENCORE RENAISSANCE RESOURCES CORP. (TSX VENTURE:EZ)(FRANKFURT:OUH1)(PINK SHEETS:ERRCF) Encore Renaissance Resources Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EZ) reports that exploration work has encountered three new mineralized veins. These veins were revealed during the completion of the surface exploration work program and while preparing to develop its underground workings.

Michael Mulberry, President of Encore commented, "The discovery of additional veins in close proximity to the known veins on the property is very encouraging and management anticipates that these new veins will add to the company's long term growth."

The Portal Entrance to the planned underground development is the starting point of the planned decline/ramp. This ramp will give the company underground access to the 14 known veins on the property, as it continues mining its bulk test sample.

The Portal Entrance, which is set on the Raven vein, has provided the positive discovery of more sulphide mineralization than was anticipated. By advancing the decline/ramp underground, the company expects to intersect all 3 new veins located between the Raven and The Eagle veins. The onset of winter conditions and mobilization of production demands have not yet allowed full investigation of these additional veins but it is known that they do contain sulphide mineralization.

The discovery of these additional veins in close proximity to the Raven and Eagle veins which contain high sulphide content, are adding to the company's long term bulk test mining potential. Each vein will be tested during the mining process to determine the overall grade of the mineralization.

The company is very encouraged by this development that is adding to the 14 known sulphide rich veins on the property.

The company is continuing the underground bulk mining test adding to its shipments of mineralized rock to Kinross Gold's mill in Washington State for processing.

Encore is a well diversified junior with projects that include its flagship property, The Bonaparte Gold Mine, located near Kamloops, British Columbia.
