Eaglecrest Announces Best Gold Results in Project History at the San Simon Project

13 drill holes return high grade gold intercepts with over 10 grams per tonne gold

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 25, 2007) - Eaglecrest Explorations Ltd. ("Eaglecrest"; the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EEL)(FRANKFURT:EAT) today announced the best and most consistent high-grade gold values in the 11-year history of its San Simon project in Bolivia.

The results are in conjunction with the company's infill and delineation drilling program at San Simon. Since the Company's May 8, 2007 news release, a total of 9,283 metres of drilling have been completed in 46 holes. The holes were drilled at approximately 25-metre spacing in an effort to delineate additional gold mineralization in the L463 ore shoot.

"Not only are these results the best in San Simon's modern exploration history, they continue to validate our assessment of how the gold is focused along mineralized structures at the project," said Hans Rasmussen, President and Chief Operating Officer. "The fact that 13 holes have intercepts with over 10 grams per tonne gold enables us to proceed confidently with our short offset drilling campaign and begin defining and drilling new gold shoots. We have almost completed drilling the L463 shoot, and plan to move west to begin definition drilling on the L484 shoot. And, another five gold shoots remain to be drilled beyond L484 based on our newly modeled database."

Intervals with values greater than 10 grams/tonne gold are shown in the data table (Table 1) that accompanies this release.

The Company has reduced drill hole spacing on the higher grade L463 shoot from 100 metres to 25 metres, and less where needed, to better define the limits and improve understanding of the gold distribution within the shoot. The purpose is to provide sufficient and accurate data for an eventual resource calculation. The closer spacing was decided in early 2007 to help build a more reliable gold model of each shoot.

Based in core logging from the detailed drilling, high-grade gold results are now being discovered in multiple faults that host quartz veins, which were previously referred to as Main Quartz Vein (MQV), and additional high-grade gold is also being drilled in both hanging wall above and footwall below the thrust faults. Some of these results suggest that gold emplacement was also controlled by structures that do not coincide with quartz veins or their margins. Such structures may provide new drill targets within the gold shoot. Gold in the L463 shoot has now been delineated with detailed drilling from surface to a depth of about 350 metres and remains open at depth.

"These significant results also reflect the strength and focus of our new geologic team," said Mr. Rasmussen. "Our team's goal is to create a better understanding of how gold and alteration are related to structures and to gold emplacement within each shoot. To this end, new procedures for core logging and sampling have been developed and implemented by Walter Lienhard, the new project manager, Dr. Odin Christensen, an Eaglecrest Board member and Dr. Lukas Zurcher, who is Manager of the Lowell Program in Economic Geology at the University of Arizona."
