Richard Nemis and John Harvey Return to Windfall Lake Property as Directors of Eagle Hill

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 11, 2010) - Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EAG) is pleased to announce two significant additions to Eagle Hill's Board of Directors with the nominations of Noront Resources Ltd.'s ("Noront") former President and Chief Executive Officer, Richard Nemis and Noront's former Chief Operating Officer, John Harvey. In 2008, Mr. Nemis was named Chairman Emeritus of Noront for life in recognition of his outstanding pivotal contributions to that company's success, which included the discovery and consolidation of the Windfall Lake Property and the "Ring of Fire" McFaulds Lake area in northeastern Ontario. Mr. Harvey had spent most of his professional career employed in mineral exploration with Noranda Inc., including positions as President of Hemlo Gold Mines and President of Noranda Exploration Company Ltd., prior to his work for Noront. With more than 90 years of combined mining and exploration experience, their appointments would be a welcome addition to any resource company's management team.

"What makes this announcement even more important for Eagle Hill's shareholders is that these two gentlemen were the original believers in the Windfall Lake Property and will play a critical role in providing guidance as the company strives to realize their vision of turning the Windfall Lake Property into a mine," stated Brad Kitchen, President of Eagle Hill.

The appointment of these two new directors is subject to shareholder approval at the Company's Annual General Meeting to be held on March 11, 2010 and TSX Venture Exchange Approval.

These pending appointees will join the current management of Eagle Hill, consisting of: Brad Kitchen, President and Chief Executive Officer; Cale Thomas, Director and Chief Financial Officer; Andre Tessier, Director and Head of Exploration; and Amandeep Rai, Corporate Secretary.

In addition, the Board of Directors of Eagle Hill announces that Mr. Jason Scharfe and Mr. Dan Hachey have resigned as directors of the Company.

"We wish to thank Mr. Scharfe for his guidance and direction since the Company's inception in 2006," stated Mr. Kitchen. "The Company will continue to benefit from Mr. Hachey's expertise in the areas of venture capital and financial structuring as he will be retained as a consultant to the Board of Directors."

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.

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.
