Erin Ventures Inc. (TSX-Venture: EV) announces that it is preparing for the resumption of alluvial gold production on its Ceibo Chico Property in Belize, scheduled to begin early in the second quarter of 2009, now that the annual rainy season has concluded. The production goal for this season is to process up to 60 cubic yards of gold-bearing material per hour, 18 hours per day, 6 days a week.
