VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 31, 2007) - Eaglecrest Explorations Ltd. ("Eaglecrest"; the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EEL)(FRANKFURT:EAT) today announced it has appointed Walter Lienhard as Vice President, Exploration. The Company also announced that Dr. Thomas ("Tom") Henricksen will join Eaglecrest's Board of Directors.

"We are extremely pleased to have Walter in an expanded role with the Company and to welcome Tom to Eaglecrest," said Hans Rasmussen, President and Chief Operating Officer. "Both Walter and Tom possess unique skills which we look forward to leveraging as we advance the San Simon project."

Mr. Lienhard joined Eaglecrest in May 2007 as project manager for the Company's San Simon project in Bolivia and general manager of the Company's Bolivian subsidiary. As Vice President, Exploration, Mr. Lienhard will manage all aspects of the business in the Santa Cruz, Bolivia office and oversee all exploration activities on the San Simon project as the Company continues to build and focus its geologic team.

In addition to working with Bear Creek Mining Company and Kennecott Exploration for more than 15 years, Mr. Lienhard has over 10 years of experience in all phases of exploration in Latin America, including project and country management with Kennecott and junior exploration companies. He received a B.Sc. in Geology from the University of Arizona in 1976.

Dr. Henricksen brings substantial experience from his 35 years in the mineral exploration business, including over 20 years with Bear Creek Mining Company, Kennecott Exploration and Rio Tinto Exploration. During the past 10 years he has been a consultant geologist in South America, holding various positions with Rio Tinto Exploration in Peru and Bolivia and Norsemont Mining in Peru. He is currently consulting for Apoquindo Minerals in Peru and Chile. Dr. Henricksen received his B.Sc. in Geology from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh in 1969, and his PhD in Economic Geology from Oregon State University in 1974.

Dr. Henricksen has been involved with multiple discoveries and will lend his resource discovery and development skills to Eaglecrest. Additionally, Dr. Henricksen has already been to the San Simon project in 2002 when he was asked to write a technical report about a specific prospect area called San Francisco.

"With the experiences of Dr. Henricksen and our current director, Dr. Odin Christensen, we will have a strong technical advisory board moving the company forward toward the delineation of gold resources in the Trinidad area while also demonstrating blue sky exploration potential in the San Simon District," said Mr. Rasmussen.
