Willow Creek Receives Technical Report for Hercules Property

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - March 30, 2011) - Willow Creek Enterprises Inc. (OTCBB: WLOC) (the "Company" or "Willow Creek") is pleased to announce that it has received a Technical Report and Resource Estimate for its Hercules Property ("Hercules") in Nevada. The Report indicates an inferred resource that equates to approximately 417,000 gold-equivalent ounces.

"This is a great step forward for Willow Creek. We believe that this will provide us with the necessary basis to move forward and establish our drill program," stated Terry Fields, President, Willow Creek.

Per the technical report, the project is a relatively under explored epithermal gold-silver mineralized system with direct analogies to the historic Comstock Lode deposit located 15 kilometers west. Past drilling has indicated that significant gold mineralization is associated with intense quartz-adularia alteration of the host volcanic rock and quartz veins. The report also states that the potential for discovery of a thicker sequence of mineralized veins deeper within the epithermal envelope is considered to be very good.

"The technical report highlights what we have always thought, that the Hercules Property has a significant opportunity for a large deposit," stated Terry Fields, President, Willow Creek. "This report notes positive indicators for mineralization are hosted in the property. According to the report, historical exploration activities on the property have identified at least 10 zones of epithermal-style mineralization."

The report further states the following: "Wall rock alteration consists of multi-stage epithermal silicification, peripheral argillic and advanced argillic alteration and widespread distal propylitization. Clear and drusy quartz veins and multi-stagechalcedonic quartz and adularia occur within the silicic zone of alteration. Kaolinite, sericite and alunite are observed in the argillic zone. Chlorite, calcite and siderite typically comprise the propylitic zone of alteration. Sulphide mineralization, primarily pyrite and marcasite, accompanies the alteration suite. Other gangue minerals include arsenopyrite, silver sulphosalts and electrum."

Based on the foregoing, Mr. Fields continued, "This quote is intriguing because it shows the indicators necessary for an epithermal-style deposit! We feel that Willow Creek is in the right place for a discovery."

The Company would also like to note that this report is authored by a Certified Professional Geologist. The author is registered as professional geologist under the jurisdiction of The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG), and holds AIPG Certified Professional Geologist.

Willow Creek will seek estimates for a drill program based on the Technical Report.

About Hercules Gold & Silver Property:
The Hercules project consists of 86 mining claims for a total of 1720 acres, which is located in the prestigious Walker Lane Mineral Belt in southern Lyon County, Nevada, USA. Hercules is located approximately 25 miles southwest of Reno, 11 kilometers outside of Dayton, 10 miles from the Comstock Lode Deposit and 15 miles from the Talapoosa Mine.

The historic Walker Lane Mineral Belt in western Nevada is a highly mineralized trend that contains several world-class epithermal precious metals deposits such as:

*the Comstock Lode (estimated production of 8.6 million ounces of gold and 192 million ounces of silver);
*Round Mountain (Barrick / Kinross) (over 10 million ounces of gold produced since 1906); and
*Rawhide, Aurora, Goldfield mines.

Additional porphyry copper deposits are at Yerington (1.75 billion pounds of copper produced from 1953-1978 by Anaconda Copper Company.)
