Etruscan Resources Inc. is a diversified Canadian junior mining company that focuses on the exploration, development and production of gold properties in West Africa as well as exploration and production of alluvial diamonds in South Africa. Since 1994, Etruscan's exploration efforts on the Greenstone belts in Niger resulted in the discovery of a major gold deposit known as the Samira Hill Gold Mine. Samira Hill commenced commercial production in September 2004 and production is expected to average 115,000 ounces of gold per year at a cost of US$225 per ounce. Samira Hill is one of three separate one million ounce gold properties which Etruscan plans to advance to production by 2007. The second property is the Youga Gold Project located in Burkina Faso which is now under construction and the third project is the Agbaou Gold property located in Cote d'Ivoire . Today, Etruscan has grown a portfolio of over 32 strategically located gold projects in the West African countries of Niger, Burkina Faso, Mali, and Cote d'Ivoire, and a majority interest in diamond production and exploration in South Africa. With a consistent mandate to identify opportunities for growth and projects in production or pending production, Etruscan expects to become a mid tier gold producer in the next two years.

The Company is based in Windsor, Nova Scotia and its common shares trade on the TSX Exchange under the symbol EET.
