Eagle Hill Appoints Jean-Philippe Desrochers as Chief Geologist

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 12, 2010) - Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EAG) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jean-Philippe Desrochers, Ph.D, P. Geo. as the Company's chief geologist.

Dr. Desrochers holds a PhD in geology from University of Montreal and has over seventeen years experience in the mineral exploration industry in Canada, Central America and South America. He has been involved with intermediate and junior mining companies with exploration projects ranging from grassroots to mine-scale, on both surface and underground. Dr. Desrochers specializes in the field of structural geology applied to ore deposits in the search for Archean lode gold, volcanogenic massive sulfides, porphyry copper, skarn, and epithermal gold deposits. Dr. Desrochers was the Vice-President of Exploration for Murgor Resources Inc. (MGR: TSX-V) from 2005 through to May of 2010. Past experience also includes senior positions with Aur Resources and SRK Consulting.

While at Murgor Resources Inc., Dr. Desrochers worked on the Windfall Lake Property (the "Property") since Eagle Hill acquired the Property and planned the extremely successful Winter and Summer 2010 drill programs. His familiarity with the Property will be an asset as the Company moves into its modeling and drill target planning for the winter 2010/2011 drilling program.

"The addition of Jean-Philippe as the chief geologist of our exploration work at the Windfall Lake Property greatly enhances our ability to rapidly advance our exploration. As we continue to hit gold mineralization with every hole drilled, it is important to begin to plan for the next stage at Windfall, and Dr. Desrochers' experience in the structural geology of advanced stage projects will be critical as Eagle Hill moves towards its goal of completing a resource calculation at Windfall Lake," stated P. Bradley Kitchen, President.

In related news the Company's exploration contract with Murgor Resources expired on September 30, 2010 and was not renewed by either party.
