Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation: Summer 2011 Windfall Lake Property Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 5, 2011) - Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EAG) is pleased to provide an update on the Company's work on the Windfall Lake Property (the "Windfall Lake Property" or the "Property"). This update will focus on the following:

  • Addition of 6,300 meters to the 2011 Drill Program;
  • Assays pending on 3,500 meters of drilling;
  • Identification of the Geological Structure hosting the Gold Mineralization;
  • Status of the Property's initial gold resource estimate and related NI 43-101 Technical Report; and
  • Summary of results of the first 10,000 meters of the 2011 Drilling Results.

Addition of 6,300 meters to the 2011 Drill Program

The Company completed 10,019 meters of drilling prior to the spring break-up or thaw period at the beginning of April. Based on the success of that drill program and the identification of additional targets that could increase the size of the mineralized gold zones, the Company added an additional 6,300 meters to the current drill program. Drilling began in mid-May and is progressing at a rate of 100 meters per day. Currently 6,100 meters has been drilled and logged and the Company anticipates that this program will be completed in the first week of July. The drill holes, for the most part are step-out holes designed to expand the north-east trend of the Caribou, the Zone 27, and the W3 gold zones. With the completion of the current drilling program, Eagle Hill will have satisfied the "earn-in" portion of its acquisition of 75% of the Windfall Lake Property from Noront Resources Ltd.

Assays pending on 3,500 meters of drilling

The Company's policy is to immediately log the core received from the drilling team. Any core that shows signs of disseminated and stockwork of pyrite mineralization is sent for assaying at the ALS labs in Val d'Or. The time to process the assay results has doubled since the backlog in winter due to an increase in backlog at the laboratories. The Company anticipates receiving the results from the first holes drilled in mid-May within the next few weeks and will immediately report all material assays. Receipt and reporting of assays should continue every 3 to 4 weeks to the end of August and will include results from the 3,500 meters of assays pending and 2,800 meters of new drilling.

Identification of the Geological Structure hosting the Gold Mineralization

Eagle Hill's Chief Geologist, Dr. Jean-Philippe Desrochers, along with his team have made significant strides toward understanding structure that hosts the mineralized gold zones. This is critical for both obtaining a solid initial resource calculation and being able to identify future potential areas of gold mineralization. Through the use of multiple tools, the team has been able to correlate the presence of identified gold zones with various indicators. Specifically, with the use of GoCad Modeling System, it was determined that the mineralized gold zones lie within and parallel to a 7.5 kilometer, southwest to northeast- trending shear zone. Historic drilling has shown presence of visible gold along this structure, some 1500 meters to the east-northeast of the main zones, which indicates the gold potential of this structure. In addition, new Induced Polarization anomalies testing conducted by the Company during the past winter shows a 100% correlation of low resistivity with our known gold zones. Based on this correlation, we have identified previously un-drilled targets that could extend our existing zones to the northeast and the southwest. The Company is currently compiling and contracting to complete IP testing along the entire 7.5 kilometer shear zone to help identify future drill targets. In addition, the new Induced Polarization survey has very good depth penetration and has shown that there may be further mineralization below an intrusion that cross-cuts our existing gold zones at a depth of 400 meters. The results of these new tools and their correlation to the existing gold zones are demonstrated on the Company's current PowerPoint available on the website at www.eaglehillexploration.com/investors.

Status of the Property's initial gold resource estimate and related NI 43-101 Technical Report

Eagle Hill has engaged SRK Consulting to produce the Property's initial gold resource estimate and related technical report compliant to National Instrument 43-101 guidelines. SRK has reviewed the Company's historic information, has been consulted with respect to the current drill program and has visited the site. The Company anticipates that this resource estimate will be announced in early fall 2011.

Often, but not always, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as "plans", "planning", "planned", "expects" or "looking forward", "does not expect", "continues", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "potential", "anticipates", "does not anticipate", or "belief", or describes a "goal", or variation of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved.

Forward-looking statements are based on a number of material factors and assumptions, including, the result of drilling and exploration activities, that contracted parties provide goods and/or services on the agreed timeframes, that equipment necessary for exploration is available as scheduled and does not incur unforeseen break downs, that no labour shortages or delays are incurred, that plant and equipment function as specified, that no unusual geological or technical problems occur, and that laboratory and other related services are available and perform as contracted. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, future events, conditions, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, prediction, projection, forecast, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, among others, the interpretation and actual results of current exploration activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of gold; possible variations in grade or recovery rates; failure of equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; the failure of contracted parties to perform; labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of exploration, as well as those factors disclosed in the company's publicly filed documents. Although both companies have attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
