Golden Eagle Begins Processing at C Zone Gold Mill

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) - Golden Eagle International, Inc. (OTCBB: MYNG) today reported that it has begun processing gold-bearing mineralized material through its C Zone gold mill in eastern Bolivia. The C Zone mill has been through two weeks of shakeout operations running sterile material to ensure that surging and other issues would not result in the loss of recoverable gold. Electrical systems, as well as the crushing and milling equipment, have been subjected to increasing loads to test operational parameters.

Golden Eagle's C Zone operation has now introduced gold-bearing mineralized material into the mill and will increase loads over the next 20-day period to meet its initial production capacity of 200 tonnes per day (tpd). The Company intends to incrementally expand its mill over the first 6 months of operations to a final projected capacity of 2,000 tpd.

Golden Eagle has estimated that the most sampled core area of its eluvial gold deposit in the C Zone contains 630,000 m3 (approximately 1.26 million tonnes) of mineralized material averaging gold grades in the range of 1 g/m3, but with a range as high as 1,400 mg/m3 and a cutoff grade of 100 mg/m3. (It is important to note that mineralized material is not the equivalent of proven and probable reserves, and does not assure a level of commercial extraction, but may be reclassified as production progresses.) Golden Eagle's mine plan calls for the use of data gathered from 265 auger drilling and shaft-style pit sampling sites, as well as 10 months of confirmation pilot operations, to focus its initial mining on several high-grade areas well identified within the C Zone.

Golden Eagle International, Inc. is a gold and copper exploration and mining company headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, and with offices also in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Because the Company has limited financial resources, its efforts have centered on establishing production operations on its gold project on the C Zone within its 136,500 acres (213 square miles) in eastern Bolivia's Precambrian Shield. The Company is also continuing the development of its Buen Futuro A Zone gold and copper project. In addition, Golden Eagle is working with industry consultants regarding the potential expansion of its operations through maximizing the potential of, or selling to third parties and reinvesting the proceeds from, its Gold Bar 3,500 to 4,500 tpd CIP gold mill located in Eureka, Nevada.
