Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation: New Drill Results Expand Windfall Lake Gold Zones With Assays Including 22.85 g/t of Gold Over 25.0 Meters

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 27, 2012) - Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EAG) continues to expand the size of gold zones 27 and Mink, and announces drill results from five other completed drill holes testing the Mallard and the Caribou zones. The Company has also posted its first longitudinal section of Zone 27 on its website at www.eaglehillexploration.com/sections.

Drill hole EAG-12-318 intersected significant gold mineralization close to surface in the upper extension of Zone 27 with 22.85 g/t Au over 25.0 meters. This intersection which is located in a historically poorly tested area is only 65 meters below surface and is believed to represent the faulted equivalent of Zone 27. Historically this sector had been deemed of lower potential, until a recent geological interpretation suggested the faulted extension of Zone 27 may be located to the south of the fault. Drill hole EAG-12-318 proved to be this interpretation to be correct. This is illustrated on the cross-section located on the Company's website at www.eaglehillexploration.com/sections. A complete meter by meter list of the assay values for the best results in drill hole EAG-12-318 is available on the Company's website at www.eaglehillexploration.com/assay_results.

Drill hole EAG-12-314 also intersected significant gold grades in the Mink zone with 25.0 g/t Au over 3.0 meters within a zone containing 3-20% pyrite stringers. This drill hole also returned 12.95 g/t over 0.85 meters and 31.8 g/t Au over 0.9 meters in smaller intervals also containing 10-30% pyrite stringers that are parallel to the Mink Zone.

"The intersection on Zone 27 occurred in a previously untested area. This result confirms the structural extension of Zone 27 through the fault that breaks this gold zone. The expansion of this high grade gold zone now has significantly more potential as we now understand that the gold structure continues through the fault," explained Brad Kitchen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Hill. "The Company is working towards expanding the gold mineral resource at the Windfall Lake Gold Property with its current 25,000 meter diamond drill program. Continued results such as these will not only increase the size of the resource but will also improve the already high grade nature of this gold resource."

Further, drill holes EAG-12-310 to EAG-12-317 tested the Caribou south zone, the Caribou Zone, and the Mallard zone with only anomalous results. This is partly due to lower sulphide content of the mineralized intervals, or by the fact that zones were cross-cut by thicker porphyry dykes than previously interpreted. The best assay results were 11.0 g/t Au over 0.8 of a meter and 17.4 g/t Au over 1.0 meter in isolated intervals of drill hole EAG-12-314 and 8.88 g/t Au over 1.0 meter in an isolated interval of drill hole EAG-12-318.

Eagle Hill is still awaiting the assay results for several intervals of core for drill holes EAG-12-319 to EAG-12-343. All results will be released as soon as they become available. Eagle Hill has now completed approximately 17,000 meters of its 25,000 meters drill program which should be complete the beginning of April. Another phase of drilling is also planned for the summer 2012.

A cross-section showing the extension of Zone 27 towards surface and a longitudinal section of Zone 27 can be viewed at www.eaglehillexploration.com/sections A map of the Windfall Lake Property outlining the location of the gold zones, drill holes and areas of potential expansion has been posted also on Eagle Hill's website.

The following table shows the most material assay results from nine (9) of the most recent drill holes.

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 ton (or tonne??). Assays returning results over 1 ounce per ton of gold by atomic absorption will be re-assayed using the metallic sieve method. All assays were performed by ALS Chemex Laboratory Group, in Val d'Or, Quebec. Sampling and analytical procedures are subject to a comprehensive quality assurance and quality control program. The QA-QC program, includes duplicate samples, blanks and analytical standards.
