WINDFALL PROPERTY REVIEW AND OUTLOOK

The Windfall Lake Property covers approximately 12,400 hectares in the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Quebec. The property consists of 285 contiguous claims. Eagle Hill obtained ownership of the property by optioning different claim blocks from Noront, Murgor and Cliffs. On March 13, 2014, the Company announced that it has entered into a claims purchase agreement with Murgor Resouces Inc. ("Murgor") and Cliffs Chromite Ontario Inc. ("Cliff"), to purchase the remaining interest in The 29 Claims and The 184 Claims immediately adjacent to the Windfall Lake Property. Upon closing of the agreement, which remains subject to regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions, Eagle Hill will own 100% of the entire Windfall Lake Property. In consideration for purchasing Murgor and Cliff's ownership interests in The 29 Claims and The 184 Claims, the Company will pay $250,000 and issue 9.5 million common shares to each of Murgor and Cliffs. In addition, the Company will grant a 0.5% NSR for The 29 Claims and a 1% NSR for The 184 Claims to each of Murgor and Cliffs. The Company will retain the right to buy back any of the NSRs at any time prior to first commercial production by paying $500,000 to the holder of the NSR.

The Fall 2013 drill program achieved its primary objectives, confirming continuity of mineralization below Red Dog, confirming the extension of mineralization southwest of the Main Zone, and expanding both Zone 27 and the Mink Lens. In addition, a downhole IP survey showed additional potential below Red Dog.

From February 18 to March 22, 2014, Eagle Hill drilled 3,333.3 metres to test for extensions of Zone 27 under shallow lakes (2 to 6 metres depth) that were frozen. Eagle Hill drilled 21 holes to a depth of 120 to 321 metres to test the lateral extensions of Zone 27, where previous drilling had confirmed near-surface high-grade intervals such as 14.8 g/t over 16.0 metres (EAG-12-418). All drill core has been delivered to the assay lab, with results pending.

On March 3, 2014 the Company released an updated mineral resource statement for the Windfall Lake Property. The mineral resource statement was prepared by SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc. ("SRK") and updated the previous resource statement prepared by SRK in July 2012. The revision was based on the results from a total database of 706 core boreholes (192,045 metres) of which 635 boreholes (179,641 metres) were used for mineral resource estimation purposes. Compared to the July 2012 mineral resource statement, the indicated mineral resource tonnage and contained gold have increased by 43% and 38%, respectively, resulting in contained gold of 744,000 ounces grading 9.75 g/t gold. Indicated mineral resources are defined only within the Main Zone, which is informed by higher density of drilling data and better confidence in the geological continuity of the gold mineralization. The inferred mineral resource is estimated at 3,084,000 tonnes grading 7.37 g/t gold for contained gold of 731,000 ounces.

  2. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is
    no certainty that all or any part of the mineral resources will be converted into mineral reserves.
  3. All figures have been rounded to reflect the relative accuracy of the estimates.
  4. Reported at a cut-off grade of 3.0 g/t gold, assuming an underground extraction scenario, a gold price of US$1,200 per ounce and metallurgical recovery of 91.7%.
