Eagle Hill Reports Up To 97 Percent Gold Recovery at Windfall Lake

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 26, 2011) - (TSX VENTURE:EAG) Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") announces today that results from initial metallurgical test work from the Windfall Lake Property (the "Property" or the "Windfall Lake Property") in Quebec demonstrate gold recoveries up to 97%.

The initial metallurgical testing indicates that gold recovery can be achieved by conventional processing. A total of 17% of the gold was recovered through gravity and an additional 80% was recovered in gold bearing sulphide flotation concentrate. Additional mineralogical testing is underway to evaluate the distribution of the gold grains in the gravity and the flotation concentrates. This information will be used to plan further metallurgical optimization studies.

Dr. Jean-Philippe Desrochers, Chief Geologist of Eagle Hill commented: "These positive metallurgical results speak well for the high quality of this gold resource at Windfall Lake. The results show that gold recoveries at the Property can be successfully achieved with simple gravity and flotation processes. Since metallurgical recovery is a key component in the economic evaluation of mining projects, the Company decided to address the metallurgical risks early in the planning process to develop an economically viable gold deposit."

The initial metallurgical test was conducted on a 10 kg sample collected from quarter split core of Zone 27 (drillhole EAG-10-196, 254 to 278 meters). This mineralization is typical of the Windfall gold deposit and consists of 5-15% disseminated pyrite and stringers hosted in a sericitized felsic volcanic rock unit.

Test work was conducted by G&T Metallurgical Services Ltd. of Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. G&T is a highly reputable independent laboratory with more than 20 years experience in the field. The Property's metallurgical work by G&T was managed by Thomas Shouldice P.Eng, a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.

Previous metallurgical testing, completed in the fall of 2008 by Laboratoire LTM Inc. at the request of Noront Resources Ltd., on two other gold zones at the Windfall Lake Property indicated recoveries reaching 94% for the F-11 zone and 89% for the F-17 gold zone.

Jean-Philippe Desrochers, Ph.D., P.Geo. is a Qualified Person registered in Quebec as defined by NI43-101 and has reviewed the technical information that this press release contains.
