Edenville Energy plc (AIM:EDL), the coal focused African energy exploration and development company, today announces that Layne Drilling International have confirmed that the drill rig will arrive on sitethe week commencing May 14th to initiate the drill programme recommended by consultants Wardell-Armstong International ("WAI").

Mobilisation of men and material will take approximately 7 days with drilling due to commence by the end of May. Drilling will initially involve the cleaning and casing of several of the 2011 drillholes to complete downhole geophysical logging, allowing. more accurate correlation between boreholes and a greater confidence in the projecting the coal measures. This work is fundamental to †the upgrading from 'Inferred' to 'Measured and Indicated' Resource status, as defined under JORC rulings.†
The geophysics will take approximately two weeks to complete, after which the in-fill drilling at Mkomolo will commence. A15 to 18 hole program has been laid out by WAI which is anticipated to take approximately three months to complete. The drill rig will then be moved to Namwele and then Muze.
