Goldeye Options Claims to Creso Resources in Shining Tree Area

Tyrrell Drilling Program Commences

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 3, 2010) - Goldeye Explorations Limited ("Goldeye" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GGY) is pleased to announce that it has optioned 23 claims in Tyrrell Township in the Shining Tree area of northeastern Ontario to Creso Resources (Creso). The three blocks of claims adjoin the Minto (Gordon Lake) deposit on which a historic resource which is non–compliant with National Instrument 43-101 (and should not be relied upon) was identified to contain 225,000 tons grading 0.20 g Au/t to a depth of 750 feet, as reported in the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development and Mines Resident Geologist Annual Report for 2008. Creso has also acquired the Minto deposit and other surrounding ground.

The option agreement enables Creso to acquire up to a 75% interest in the optioned Goldeye claims. To earn an initial 50% direct working interest, Creso must make payments of $250,000 ($100,000 received), issue 400,000 shares (100,000 received) and incur a minimum aggregate work expenditure of $1,000,000 no later than three years from the agreement date. To acquire an additional 10% interest, Creso must incur an additional $500,000 of work costs within two years of earning its 50% interest. To acquire an additional 15% interest, for a direct aggregate 75% working interest, Creso shall assume all costs to bring the Goldeye claims to production within three years after earning its initial 50% interest. Annual advance net smelter return royalty payments of $75,000 commence at the beginning of year four of the option. These royalty payments are to be applied as advances against the actual Goldeye NSR payments should Goldeye be diluted to a net smelter return royalty if a joint venture were to be formed prior to Creso's earning a 75% interest. As well, the Company has a separate 2% NSR (half of which is purchasable for $1,000,000) on two claims included in the option. Additionally, a lump sum payment of $2,000,000 will be made to Goldeye upon reaching 50,000 ounces of production from the Company's claims.

Tyrrell Drilling Program Start-Up

Goldeye has recently mobilized a diamond drill and commenced drilling a minimum 4,000 metre program on its retained Tyrrell Township property, located approximately three kilometres from the Creso properties. The drilling will follow-up on the late 2009 drilling in which hole 41 intersected 4.97 g Au/t over 3.0 metres in the West Iron Formation Zone and hole 42 intersected 6.12 g Au/t over 4.43 metres in the East Extension Target. Both intersections occur within a mineralized strike length of 700 metres in the Big Dome area. Drilling is also planned for the Hydro Creek area, which is located approximately 900 metres to the west. Here, the down plunge extension of the Lacarte North Zone will be investigated, as well as additional mineralization associated with the Tyrrell Shear Zone
