Eagle Hill Begins June Drill Program at Windfall Lake

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) - Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation (TSX VENTURE:EAG) ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has begun its June 2010 drill program on its Windfall Lake Property (the "Property").

Eagle Hill has continued the development of its 3-D Gemcom model for the Windfall Lake Property. The completion of this phase of the 3-D model of the Property's gold deposit is a critical step in the process of moving towards the Company's goal of understanding the controls of the mineralization and establishing continuity between the gold zones at the Windfall Lake Property. Furthermore, the model allows the Company to further explore for new gold deposits at the entire property-scale by providing specific exploration criteria such as structural controls, geometry of mineralized zones and genetic modelling. The new interpretation shows that shallow dipping manto-style mineralized zones are not as extensive as previously thought, but are replaced by wide sub-vertical mineralized zones, as shown on the model posted on the Company's website, www.eaglehillexploration.com.

Eagle Hill continues to focus on a strategy that utilizes all available data resulting from the past drilling, while developing its own exploration and modelling approach. The Company believes that the Windfall Lake Property requires a systematic understanding of the geological settings and a thorough understanding of gold bearing structures.

Based on the updated 3-D Gemcom model of the gold deposit, the Company has developed the next phase of drilling that commenced last week. The drilling program will consist of 15,000 meters of drilling and will be divided into three phases, each phase consisting of 5,000 meters of drilling. The first phase of the drilling program consists of 14 drill holes for a total of 5,000 meters. This initial phase of drilling is testing a 20 meter wide, high grade section of the main zone over a strike length of over 250 meters and a dip extent of nearly 150 meters. The Company's objective is to prove continuity of the main mineralized zone to apply the new-found knowledge of the mineralization and apply it to future exploration of additional zones. The 3-D model posted on the Company's website shows the intended 14 hole drill program.

The Company believes that based on the continuously growing comprehension of the geological settings and the mineralization, the drilling program during 2010 will help the company to firmly outline the gold deposit at the Windfall Lake Property.

Eagle Hill will announce the results of the June 2010 drill program upon receipt of material assay results, anticipated over the next two month period.

About the Windfall Lake Property

The Windfall Lake Property is comprised of 362 contiguous claims (over 12,000 hectares) in the Abitibi mineralized belt of northern Quebec. This area between Val d'Or and Chibougamau is known for its gold and copper production and excellent infrastructure for exploration and mining. Historically, the Windfall Lake Property has had extensive historic grassroots exploration work. Eagle Hill has signed options with Murgor Resources Inc., Freewest Resources Canada Inc., and Noront Resources Inc. to acquire the Windfall Lake Property.

Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements that address activities, events or developments that the Company expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future, including such things as future business strategy, competitive strengths, goals, expansion, growth of the Company's businesses, operations, plans and with respect to exploration results, the timing and success of exploration activities generally, permitting time lines, government regulation of exploration and mining operations, environmental risks, title disputes or claims, limitations on insurance coverage, timing and possible outcome of any pending litigation and timing and results of future resource estimates or future economic studies.

Often, but not always, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as "plans", "planning", "planned", "expects" or "looking forward", "does not expect", "continues", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "potential", "anticipates", "does not anticipate", or "belief", or describes a "goal", or variation of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved.

Forward-looking statements are based on a number of material factors and assumptions, including, the result of drilling and exploration activities, that contracted parties provide goods and/or services on the agreed timeframes, that equipment necessary for exploration is available as scheduled and does not incur unforeseen break downs, that no labour shortages or delays are incurred, that plant and equipment function as specified, that no unusual geological or technical problems occur, and that laboratory and other related services are available and perform as contracted. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, future events, conditions, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, prediction, projection, forecast, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, among others, the interpretation and actual results of current exploration activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of gold; possible variations in grade or recovery rates; failure of equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; the failure of contracted parties to perform; labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of exploration, as well as those factors disclosed in the company's publicly filed documents. Although both companies have attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended.
