Eagle Hill Intersects 6.25 Meters of 94.50 g/t Gold and Also Identifies Another New High Grade Gold Zone at the Windfall Lake Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 10, 2011) - Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EAG) is pleased to announce that it has received assay results from an additional five drill holes from the Company's current 10,000 meter drill program. Two of the holes were drilled prior to the winter break and, in addition to expanding existing gold zones, they have helped the Company identify a new high grade gold zone, named the Mallard Zone. The assay results from the remaining three holes expand Zone 27 and continue to prove out the continuity of the gold mineralization on the Windfall Lake Property (the Windfall Lake Property").

The drilling that started after the winter break is designed to explore the potential expansion of Zone 27. The Company identified an area that had not been drilled but could, in theory, double the size of this zone. We are pleased to report that the first three holes continue to produce very strong assay results that expand the continuous gold mineralization. The results of the 3 boreholes include 94.50 g/t Au over 6.25 meters in hole EAG-11-251, 9.00 g/t Au over 11.00 meters in hole EAG-11-250 and 2.07 g/t Au over 11.00 meters in drill hole EAG-11-249. 

Assay results from the two holes drilled prior to the winter break include drill hole EAG-10-246 which expanded Zone 27 by 50 meters to the ENE at depth with an intercept of 10.86 g/t Au over 5.40 meters. Previous drilling on the same section, but 100 meters above this hole, intersected 5.05 g/t Au over 5.40 meters in hole NOT-06-101.

Drill hole EAG-10-248 now confirms continuity of the high grade Mallard Zone with 25.65 g/t Au over 2.00 meters. The Mallard zone is located 200 meters to the NW and runs parallel to Zone 27. Other historic drill holes in this newly recognized gold zone intersected 37.37 g/t Au over 1.0 meter in drill hole ATO-98-10r, 41.18 g/t Au over 1.95 meters in hole NOT-07-115, and 382.36 g/t Au over 0.68 meters in drill hole ATO-98-05. The strike length of the Mallard Zone is over 275 meters and remains completely open in both directions.

"The Exploration Team has clearly demonstrated that they are on the right track in the modeling of gold mineralization on the Windfall Lake Property. Every drill hole in the Company's current 10,000 meter drill program has returned very strong gold assays in previously unexplored areas," explained Brad Kitchen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Hill. "With the current results and new assays from the remaining 6,900 meters of drilling, the Company will be better able to determine the extent of the gold mineralization at the Windfall Lake Property."

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 five drill holes. A complete table of results will be shown in the near future on Eagle Hill's website.

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. Assays returning results over 1 ounce per ton of gold by atomic absorption are 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.

About the Windfall Lake Property

The Windfall Lake Property is comprised of 362 contiguous claims (over 12,000 hectares) in the Abitibi mineralized belt of northern Quebec. This area between Val d'Or and Chibougamau is known for its gold and copper production and excellent infrastructure for exploration and mining. Historically, the Windfall Lake Property has had extensive historic grassroots exploration work. Along with its independently acquired claims at the Windfall Lake Property. Eagle Hill has signed options with Murgor Resources Inc., Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. (formerly, Freewest Resources Canada Inc.), and Noront Resources Inc. to acquire the Windfall Lake Property.
