Eagle Hill Hits Significant Gold in the First 10 Holes of the Windfall Lake Summer Drill Program

Zone 27 Shows Continuous Gold Deposit

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 19, 2010) - Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EAG) is pleased to announce that it has received the final assay results from 6 more holes (Holes EAG-10-230, 232, 233, 234, 235 and 236) from the Company's 14 Hole summer drill program at the Windfall Lake Property.

The final assay results from the second 6 holes and the first 4 holes of the summer drill program (announced August 4, 2010) show gold values in 100% of the holes drilled.

Values from the 6 holes include Hole EAG-10-232 with 16.36 g/t gold over 3.35 meters (13.23 g/t when cut to 1.00 oz/t) and in the newly identified near surface zone Hole EAG-10-233 showed 2.41 g/t over 5.20 meters (the same when cut to 1.00 oz/t). Hole EAG-10-234 showed 0.93 g/t over 63 meters (0.88 g/t when cut to 1.00 oz/t). Hole EAG-10-235 had three very strong separate intercepts including 9.37 g/t gold over 4.4 meters near surface (at a depth of 72.60 meters to 77.00 meters), 10.38 g/t over 3.00 meters (7.86 g/t when cut to 1.00 oz/t) and 1.34 g/t gold over 10.00 meters (the same when cut to 1.00 oz/t). Most importantly there were gold values over widths ranging from 3.35 meters to 63.00 meters in all 10 holes drilled. In addition, these results confirm the presence of a new zone of gold mineralization at a depth of only 60 meters from the surface.

Drill holes 227 to 236 are the first ten holes from the summer drill program at Windfall Lake Property all drilled from one set-up. The summer drill program is scheduled to be 14 holes and will encompass approximately 5,000 meters in total. This phase of the drill program is just over 80% complete and the drill has been moved to a second set-up for the final 4 holes. Further assay results from the program will be released as they become available. The current drill program is the first phase of an intended 15,000 meter drill program which will have phase 2 and 3 executed over the next 6 to 9 months.

This current drill program was designed to better understand the geological structure of the gold mineralization in Zone 27. This zone encompasses historic drill holes such as NOT-04-27 (3.90 g/t gold over 35.55 meters), NOT-05-73 (39.94 g/t gold over 17.30 meters) and EAG-10-196 (14.2 g/t gold over 52.00 meters). The results from the current drill program confirm the continuity of the gold mineralization throughout Zone 27. Discovery of the potential new zone close to the surface was not anticipated. The results from the entire program will be used to update the Windfall Lake Property model. The model will then help assess new gold mineralization so that a better understanding of the property's gold deposits can be determined.

The following table shows the most material assay results from Holes EAG-10-230, 232, 233, 234, 235 and 236. A complete table of results will be shown in the near future on Eagle Hill's website at www.eaglehillexploration.com.

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. Assays returning results over 1 oz/t gold by atomic absorption are re-assayed using metallic sieve method. All assays were performed by ALS Chemex Laboratory Group, in Val D'Or, Quebec and Vancouver, British Columbia. Sampling and analytical procedures are subject to a comprehensive quality assurance and quality control program conceived by the Murgor Resources Inc. technical team. The QA-QC program, includes duplicate samples, blanks and analytical standards.

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. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements.
