Eagle Hill Continues to Intersect High Grade Gold Including 13.32 g/t Gold Over 19.00 Meters at the Windfall Lake Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EAG) is pleased to announce further results of its successful drilling program that continues to return significant assay results over large widths while meaningfully extending the size of the known gold zones at the Windfall Lake Property ("Windfall Lake Property" or "Property").

The three holes reported from the Property significantly increase the size of Eagle Hill's most prolific gold zone, Zone 27. With these results, this zone has been extended by 100 meters to the east, for a known strike length of over 450 meters, and still remains open to the East. The most significant assay result from the three holes reported today is from hole EAG-11-259 that intersected 13.32 g/t Au over 19.00 meters, including a higher grade portion of 17.81 g/t Au over 9.00 meters. The gold mineralization is hosted in a well-developed zone of disseminated and stringers of pyrite with local chalcopyrite. The results of this drill hole indicate that Zone 27 may also extend for up to 500 meters vertically on this section.

Drill hole EAG-11-253 is one of the very few holes (only 10 holes over a 1 kilometer strike length) that tested Zone 27 in the upper 200 meters from surface. The results obtained with this hole, 9.49 g/t Au over 7.0 meters, confirm vertical and width continuity in the gold grades for Zone 27 and demonstrate that the good grade gold mineralization, defined so far at depth, extends towards surface.

Drill hole EAG-11-254 was drilled some 50 meters to the east of drill hole EAG-10-246 (10.86 g/t Au over 5.40 meters) and the above described hole EAG-11-253. This long drill hole intersected significant widths of gold mineralization in three gold zones including 12.00 meters of 2.30 g/t Au in the Mink Zone, 12.80 meters of 1.13 g/t Au in the Caribou Zone and 8.00 meters of 1.59 g/t Au in Zone 27. This hole is important in that it both extends the known gold zones and demonstrates continuity of gold mineralization in all the known zones.

"The success rate of hitting significant gold results in each hole of the current drill program has demonstrated that our exploration team has been able to successfully model the gold mineralization on the Windfall Lake Property", stated Brad Kitchen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Hill Exploration. "Dr. Jean-Philippe Desrochers and his team will now focus on defining additional ounces to the known gold zones and begin a more broad reaching exploration program."

Complete results for EAG-11-259 and for drill holes EAG-11-255 to EAG-11-258 will be released as soon as they become available. Eagle Hill has completed over 7,000 meters of drilling of its current drill program. Assay results for additional holes are pending and will be released when available.

A map of the Windfall Lake Property outlining the location of the gold zones, drill holes and areas of potential expansion has been posted on Eagle Hill's website at www.eaglehillexploration.com.

The following table shows the most material assay results from the three drill holes. A complete table of results will be shown in the near future on Eagle Hill's website.
