Eagle Hill's Gold Resource Expands With the First Assay Results From Its New Drill Program Including 9.6 g/t of Gold Over 3.3 Meters and 5.6 g/t of Gold Over 10.6 Meters at Windfall Lake

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2011) - Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EAG) is pleased to announce that the first assay results from its new 25,000 meter drill program at the Windfall Lake Property (the "Property") will add ounces to its recently announced gold resource calculation of 1,144,000 tonnes at 9.1 g/t of gold (335,000 ounces of gold) in the indicated category and 1,690,000 tonnes at 6.7 g/t of gold (364,000 ounces of gold) in the inferred category (using a cut-off grade of 3.0 g/t).

Drillhole EAG-11-295 expanded the Caribou and Mink Zones 75 meters to the east of the area geologically modeled for the resource estimate announced on November 4, 2011. Significant pyrite stockwork was intersected in both zones and returned results of 9.6 g/t of gold over 3.30 m and 5.6 g/t of gold over 10.55 m.

"These drill results confirm that the number of ounces of gold at the Property will expand in the near future. The new results of drill hole EAG-11-295 demonstrate that more gold can be found in the extension of the zones included in the Company's initial mineral resource estimation. These results represent only the first 1,620 meters or only 6.5% of the current 25,000 meter drill program specifically targeted to increase the size of the gold mineral resource," explained Brad Kitchen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Hill. "Further, widths of up to 25 horizontal meters in the modeled gold zones are consistent with Eagle Hill's potential bulk tonnage hypothesis. Better understanding of the mining methodology related to the Windfall Lake deposit may lead to a reduced cut-off grade. Sensitivity analysis on the Company's gold resource calculation would, at a cut-off grade of 1.4 g/t, result in the deposit having 998,000 ounces of gold with a grade of 4.17 g/t."

In addition, drillholes EAG-11-290 and EAG-11-291 tested extension of the gold-bearing East-West shear zone that had been by drillhole EAG-11-288 (14.0 m at 7.47 g/t of gold). These holes intersected 2.5 g/t of gold over 2.6 meters and 2.5 g/t of gold over 1.7 meters, respectively. These results confirm that the shear zone is gold-bearing. Additional drillholes will be completed with the intention to identify high grade gold mineralization along this 7.5 kilometer-long shear zone.

Eagle Hill is still awaiting the assay results for several intervals of core for drillholes EAG-11-289 to EAG-11-295. All results will be released as soon as they become available. Eagle Hill has completed over 5,00 meters of drilling of its current drill program.

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 four 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 grassroots exploration work. Along with its independently acquired claims at the Windfall Lake Property, Eagle Hill has also 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.
