Eagle Hill Commences 2,800-metre Deep Drill Program at the Windfall Lake Gold Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 5, 2014) - Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation (TSX VENTURE:EAG)(OTCQX:EHECF) ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has commenced a 2,800-metre drill program targeting the extension of gold mineralization at depth below the Main Zone of the Windfall Lake Gold Project. Windfall Lake is a high-grade gold deposit located between Val-d'Or and Chibougamau in Quebec, Canada.

Eagle Hill plans to deepen six existing drill holes into a target zone at approximately 800 metres vertical depth that is currently untested. Geological studies indicate that the gold mineralization hosted by Zone 27 and the Caribou Zone may have been displaced as much as 600 metres to the northeast below the Red Dog intrusion (Figure 1), which also coincides with a hole-to-hole IP anomaly identified below Red Dog (Figure 2). Recent re-interpretation suggests that the mineralization intersected in 2013 below Red Dog corresponds to the depth extension of the Caribou Lens (Figure 2). As a result, Zone 27, which hosts the majority of the gold mineralization identified to date at the deposit, is interpreted to lie further to the north and will be tested with this drill program.

Eagle Hill also plans to complete an additional hole-to-hole IP survey after completion of the current drill program to further define drill targets at depth. Should the initial 2,800-metre drill program yield positive results, Eagle Hill has already planned another phase of drilling to establish the extent of the gold mineralization at depth.

The Fall 2013 drilling program confirmed continuity of gold mineralization below the Red Dog intrusion and delineated an inferred mineral resource of 455,000 tonnes at a grade of 8.21 g/t gold for 120,000 contained ounces of gold. The current drill program is targeting additional gold mineralization that could increase the size of the Windfall Lake gold deposit.

About Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation

Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation is a Canadian mineral exploration company focused on the exploration and development of the high-grade Windfall Lake gold deposit, located between Val-d'Or and Chibougamau in Quebec, Canada. The current mineral resource comprises 2,375,000 tonnes at 9.75 g/t gold (744,000 ounces) in the indicated category and 3,084,000 tonnes at 7.37 g/t gold (731,000 ounces) in the inferred category (Technical Report for the Windfall Lake Gold Project, Quebec prepared by SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc., dated March 3, 2014). These grades make Windfall Lake one of the highest grade resource-stage gold projects in the world. The bulk of the mineralization occurs in the Main Zone, a southwest/northeast trending zone of stacked mineralized lenses, measuring approximately 600 metres wide and at least 1,400 metres long. The deposit remains open at depth and along strike, with additional drilling and technical work planned for 2014. More information is available at www.eaglehillexploration.com.

Qualified Person

The technical information in this document has been reviewed by Eagle Hill's Vice President Exploration, Jean-Philippe Desrochers, PhD, PGeo, who has sufficient experience relevant to the style of mineralization under consideration and qualifies as a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The drill program and sampling protocol is managed by Eagle Hill under the supervision of Jean-Philippe Desrochers. The diamond drill holes are drilled at NQ sizes and core recovery to date has averaged better than 95.0%. Half core is cut by rock saw and is generally sampled using nominal 1-metre intervals; however, sample intervals vary according to geological contacts and have ranged between 0.3 to 1.5 metres in length. Two quality control samples (one blank and one certified reference material) are inserted into each batch of 20 samples. All assays were performed by ALS Chemex Laboratory Group, in Val d'Or, Quebec. The half core samples are securely transported from the project site to the ALS Chemex laboratory by Eagle Hill personnel. Gold analyses reported in this release were performed by standard fire assay using a 30-gram charge with atomic absorption finish and a gravimetric finish for assays greater than 10 grams per tonne and by metallic sieve method for samples containing significant amounts of pyrite or visible gold. In addition, an Aqua regia digestion with ICP-AES finish is used to analyse a full suite of elements including silver and base metals.
