Tower Resources plc is pleased to confirm that the MBU-125 drilling rig imported from Southern Sudan for the Iti-1 well is on site and is being rigged up.

The road conditions and procedures in Southern Sudan for exporting the rig and camp in three convoys have proven to be challenging but the challenge is being met. An additional two convoys containing the balance of the camp, drill pipe and other peripheral drilling equipment will be loaded and en route to the site early next week.

Tower now anticipates the commencement of drilling to be on or shortly after 25th May. A further announcement will be made once drilling begins.
