Eagle Hill Intersects 8.97 g/t Gold Over 8.0 Meters at the Windfall Lake Property and Expands the Caribou Zone

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 4, 2011) -Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation(TSX VENTURE:EAG) ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received assay results from an additional 8 drill holes from the Company's 2011 drill program. The results of the drilling confirm the extension of the Caribou Zone to the east and the west and expand Zone 27 further to the east while continuing to prove out the continuity of the gold mineralization on the Windfall Lake Property (the "Windfall Lake Property" or the "Property").

Drill hole EAG-11-258 expanded the Caribou zone by 200 meters to the west with an intersection of 20.82 g/t Au over 2.0 m, only 85 meters below surface. This drill hole targeted a well-defined geophysical conductor extending to the west from the Caribou zone. The Caribou Zone was also extended to the east with drill hole EAG-11-262 that returned 8.97 g/t Au over 8.0 m. This drill hole tested a 150 meter undrilled sector between the Caribou Zone to the west and the W3 Zone to the east and this new intersection suggests that the two zones might be connected. Further drilling during the summer will test this continuity.

EAG-11-259 intersected 7.94 g/t Au over 2.0 meters within the Mink zone at 265 meters below surface. The drilling was also successful at identifying new gold mineralization between the Caribou and Mink Zones with 4.67 g/t Au over 7.0 m (EAG-11-255). New gold mineralization associated with pyrite stockwork was also intersected some 40 meters to the northwest of Zone 27 and returned 5.20 g/t Au over 5.1 m (EAG-11-259).

Eagle Hill has now completed its scheduled 10,000 meter drill program and the assay results of only the last 6 holes are still pending. 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/windfall_lake_property/maps/.

The following table shows the most material assay results from the eight 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.

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.
