Eagle Hill Continues to Expand Gold Zones at Windfall Lake

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 19, 2011) - Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation (TSX VENTURE:EAG) ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") is pleased to release assay results from the first 9 holes from the 6,300 meter extension to the 2011 drill program on the Windfall Lake Property (the "Windfall Lake Property" or the "Property").

The Company's intention with this portion of the drill program was to test the shallower extensions of the mineralization on the gold zones 27, Caribou and W3 (a historic gold area located near the south end of the underground ramp). These new drill holes successfully extended Zone 27 towards surface and expanded the W3 zone to the east.

In addition, new gold mineralization was also intersected below the 100 meter thick, weakly mineralized intrusion (the "Red Dog") that intersects the Company's known gold zones. This result, when combined with the Company's recent deep penetrating Induced Polarization ("IP") survey completed by Insight Geophysics, indicates that the known gold zones extend at depth. This area will be further explored after the Company completes its initial NI 43-101 compliant gold resource calculation in the early fall of 2011.

"This portion of Eagle Hill's exploration program is focused on proving continuity of the gold zones that will add ounces to the Company's pending NI 43-101 gold resource calculation," stated Brad Kitchen, President and C.E.O. of Eagle Hill Exploration. "The exploration team was again 100% successful in hitting gold mineralization on every hole. The critical point that investors should understand with this success is that none of this drilling is infill or twinning of existing holes but rather extends known gold zones."

The following details specific results of the current assays;

  • Hole EAG-11-270 tested the extension of Zone 27 towards surface. This hole successfully intersected a 6 meter mineralized interval with up to 10% pyrite and assaying 2.3 g/t gold over 6.0 meters. EAG-11-271 also tested the upward extension of Zone 27, 75 meters to the east of hole EAG-11-270 and at 110 meters below surface and also intersected the Mink and the Caribou Zones. Assays from Zone 27 returned 10.05 g/t gold over 1.0 meters and the Mink and Caribou Zones returned assays of 1.4 g/t gold over 8.0 meters and 1.7 g/t gold over 4.0 meters respectively.
  • EAG-11-272 was an exploration hole testing an IP anomaly, some 150 meters to the East of hole EAG-11-275. The hole intersected several mineralized intervals. Assays are pending for those intervals.
  • EAG-11-273 was abandoned due to excessive deviation and was re-started as hole EAG-11-274 which tested the Eastern extensions of the W3 and the Mink Zones. Both Zones returned significant assay results such as 10.1 g/t gold over 1.0 meter and 30.2 g/t gold over 1.6 meters.
  • Near surface, EAG-11-275 tested the down dip extension of outcropping mineralization. The hole intersected several mineralized intervals such as 20 meters at 0.8 g/t gold, 7.9 meters at 1.1 g/t gold and 1.05 meters at 6.62 g/t gold.
  • EAG-11-276 was designed to test an IP anomaly at 290 meters below surface. The results from this drill hole demonstrated that the Red Dog was closer to surface than previously interpreted and as a result the drilling did not intercept the anticipated gold zone at this location. An isolated gold intercept was located close to surface.
  • EAG-11-277 tested the Mallard Zone and an IP anomaly below the Red Dog intrusion closer to surface. The Mallard Zone, characterized by 10-20% pyrite, was intersected below the intrusion at 225 meters below surface in 2 separate intervals and returned 8.38 g/t gold over 1 meter and 0.6 g/t gold over 11 meters, thus confirming the extension of the Zones below the Red Dog intrusion.
  • Holes EAG-11-278 and EAG-11-279 tested the gap between the Caribou and the W3 Zones. The holes intersected 18.45 g/t gold over 1.1 meters and 8.6 g/t gold over 1 meter respectively.

Eagle Hill has now completed its scheduled 16,300 meter drill program and the assay results of the remaining eleven drill holes are still pending and will be released when available over the next two months. The 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/windfall_lake_property/maps/.

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