Encore Renaissance Welcomes Mr. Lindsay Gorrill to its Advisory Board

 Vancouver, BC. January 17, 2012 -- Encore Renaissance Resources Corp. announced today that the company has appointed Mr. Lindsay Gorrill to its Advisory Board. Mr. Gorrill provides Encore Renaissance with over 20 years of senior management experience in the financial and resource sectors. He is expected to play key roles in the company's 2012 revitalization plan.

Mr. Gorrill graduated from Simon Fraser University with a BBA in Finance and Marketing in 1988. He was admitted to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of British Columbia in 1989. After moving into senior positions with Ernst & Whinney, Peat Marwick Thorne and KPMG, Mr. Gorrill held executive roles with a number of resource companies in Canada and the U.S.

As CFO of Quinto Mining Corp. in 2007 and 2008, Mr. Gorrill was part of a team that raised millions of dollars and advanced a Quebec iron ore property to a viable project. Quinto was then sold to Consolidated Thompson Iron Mines in June 2008 for a share value equal to $175 million (starting from $4 million). Consolidated Thompson was eventually sold to Cliffs Resources for $4.9 billion.

Since April 2009 Mr. Gorrill has served as Chief Executive Officer and President of Canada Fluorspar Inc. He has helped raise over $100 million for the company to reactivate the St. Lawrence fluorspar mine in St. Lawrence, Newfoundland.

"We are thrilled to have Lindsay join our team," said Encore Renaissance CEO Matt Wayrynen. "His education and senior-level experience give us skills and perspective that will be crucial as we rebuild this company in 2012. We all look forward to working with him."

Encore Renaissance Resources Corp. is a Canadian gold exploration company focused on developing the Bonaparte Project near Kamloops, British Columbia. Bulk sampling at Bonaparte in 1994 produced 3,160 ounces of gold from 3,700 tonnes with a grade of 26.5 grams per tonne. A second shipment in 2009 of 364.61 tons was processed and yielded 161.95 ounces of gold.
