Eagle Hill Exploration Corp.: New Assay Results Continue to Increase Grade and Width of Gold Mineralized Zones at Windfall Lake

7,000 meter exploration drilling program underway

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 4, 2010) - (TSX VENTURE:EAG) Eagle Hill Exploration Corp., is pleased to announce the final assay results from the splitting and assaying of 8,700 meters of previously drilled, but unsampled, core from the Windfall Lake Property, Quebec. 

These final assay results continue to indicate the presence of significant gold grades over wide mineralized intervals such as 2.58 g/t gold over 47.4 meters and 5.63 g/t gold over 31.9 meters. Very high grade gold values over narrow intervals, such as 106.00 g/t gold over 1.0 meter and 148.97 g/t gold over 0.85 meters are also reported.

Earlier assay results and historic information lead Eagle Hill to realize that, in addition to extremely rich, but narrow structures, the gold mineralization at the Windfall Lake Property also occurs in large intervals with consistent gold grades. The new assay results allow the Company to now replace sections of core previously deemed un-mineralized, with new gold values, resulting in much wider and consistently mineralized gold zones. 

The following table shows a sampling of some of the newly expanded intersections. The new assay results have also increased the grade of these zones.

Note: The following intervals were published by Noront Resources Ltd.:

  • On Dec 15, 2005: 

NOT-05-79:10.5 m @ 1.6 g/t Au at 48.8 m, NOT-05-79: 1.0 m @ 11.2 g/t Au at 93.9m, NOT-05-79: 2 m @ 1.4 g/t Au at 101.4m,NOT-05-79 2.9 m @ 2.7 g/t Au at 160.3m, NOT-05-81: 1.05 m @ 10.5 g/t Au at 350.4m, NOT-05-81: 11.7 m @ 1.0 g/t Au (but the entire interval was not sampled), NOT-05-81 3.45 m @ 33.4 g/t Au (uncut) at 363.15m, 

  • On Dec 29, 2006:

 NOT-06-101 10.0 m @ 5.1 g/t at 275.0m, NOT-06-101 5.4 m @ 4.4 g/t Au at 307.0m.

The true widths of the mineralized zones vary between 60% to 80% of the length of the intervals reported in the table above.

The new values listed above complete the assay results from an 8,700 meter drill core sampling program of previously drilled, but unsampled, core at the Windfall Lake property. An aggressive exploration program is currently underway at the Windfall Lake Gold project with a 7,000 meter exploration drilling program, under the management of Murgor Resources' technical team. Assay results will continue to be released as they become available.

This new data, combined with the historical results, calls for Eagle Hill to refine the exploration model and to focus on both high grade vein deposits encompassed within a bulk tonnage scenario for the Windfall Lake Property. By comparison, bulk tonnage underground mines are currently operating in the Val D'Or area, including the Goldex mine, with a proven mineral reserve grading 1.95 g/t gold.

Gold analyses reported in this release were performed by standard fire assay using a 30g charge with Atomic Absorption finish and a gravimetric finish for assays greater than 10 g/t. All assays were performed by ALS Chemex Laboratory Group, in Val D'Or, QC. Sampling and analytical procedures are subject to a comprehensive Quality Assurance and Quality Control program conceived by Murgor Resources' technical team. The QA-QC program includes duplicate samples, blanks and analytical standards.

Dr. Jean-Philippe Desrochers, P.Geo. and Vice-President of Exploration for Murgor Resources Inc. is a Qualified Person as defined by NI-43-101 that supervised the field work reported in this press release and reviewed the technical information it contains. Murgor Resources Ltd. ("Murgor") has entered into a services contract with the Company in which Murgor will conduct the exploration on the Windfall Lake Property (see the Company's press release dated Oct. 13, 2009).

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.
