("Eaglecrest"; the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EEL)(PINK SHEETS:ECRTF)(FRANKFURT:EAT) is pleased to announce that pursuant to a resolution passed by the directors on January 4, 2011, Eaglecrest Explorations Ltd. has changed its company name to Colombia Crest Gold Corp. to emphasize its new direction and focus on its exploration properties in Colombia, South America; specifically, the Company will focus on discovery of porphyry-related gold-copper resources within the Middle Cauca Belt, one of the most prolific gold belts in Colombia. 

The name and stock symbol change became effective at market open on Monday February 14, 2011, whereby the common shares of Colombia Crest Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CLB) commenced trading on the TSX Venture Exchange in place of the common shares of Eaglecrest Explorations, which will be delisted. Shareholders of Eaglecrest Explorations Ltd. will receive a 1:1 share in Columbia Crest Gold Corp.

"We are pleased with the name change to Colombia Crest Gold as it emphasizes our focus on the search for world-class gold resources in Colombia, a hot new area in the world with tremendous geologic potential, no modern exploration, and where safety and infrastructure have been dramatically improved in the past decade," commented Hans Rasmussen, Colombia Crest's President and CEO. "Also, despite the strong focus on Colombia, our San Simon project remains an important asset but we have moved the project to a lower priority until the market appreciates the significance of our work in Bolivia."
