Red Hill Details the Proposed Spin-Out Company

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 19, 2010) - Red Hill Energy (TSX VENTURE:RH) (the "Company") is pleased to provide the following update on the proposed spin-out company being created in conjunction with the proposed Red Hill Energy / Prophecy Resource Corp merger. The Red Hill / Prophecy merger excludes Red Hill's non-coal assets. As the first step of the proposed plan of arrangement with Prophecy (the "Arrangement") and prior to the merger of Red Hill and Prophecy, Red Hill will transfer its non-coal assets and CDN $1 million to a wholly owned subsidiary called Elissa Resources Ltd. ("Elissa"). Shareholders of Red Hill Energy will (and in addition to their conversion to Class A common shares on a .92 for 1 basis) be issued shares of Elissa on a conversion basis of 1 for 4 whereby for every four (4) shares of Red Hill Energy held on the effective date of the Arrangement (the "Effective Date"), Red Hill shareholders will be issued one (1) share of Elissa Resources Ltd. At completion, Elissa will have approximately 15,089,969 shares outstanding. No Red Hill options or warrants will entitle their holders to receive any shares of Elissa or convertible securities of Elissa, except to the extent such holder exercises their Red Hill options or warrants, as the case may be, to acquire shares of Red Hill prior to the Effective Date. The non-coal properties consist of the 100% owned, Thor Rare Earth Property, Nevada, the 100% owned Red Lithium Property, Nevada and the 100% owned Banbury Gold Property, British Columbia.

Elissa will be initiated as a reporting but unlisted company. Elissa shares will not be listed on any stock exchange following completion of the Arrangement, however Elissa intends to apply for a listing on the TSX-V in due course. There can be no assurances that Elissa will be successful in listing on any stock exchange. For more detailed information about Elissa, including information concerning the proposed Board of Directors, capitalization structure and other information, please see the Joint Information Circular of Red Hill and Prophecy dated March 15, 2010 available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com under Prophecy's and Red Hill's profile and/or on either www.redhillenergy.com or www.prophecyresource.com.
