Eagle Hill Releases Updated Mineral Resource Statement for Windfall Lake Gold Project, Increases Indicated Mineral Resource by 38%

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/03/14 -- Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation (TSX VENTURE: EAG)(OTCQX: EHECF) ("Eagle Hill" or the "Company") is pleased to release an updated mineral resource statement for the Windfall Lake Gold Project, located in the Abitibi Gold Belt in Quebec, Canada. The mineral resource statement was prepared by SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc. ("SRK") and updates the previous resource statement prepared by SRK in July 2012. The revision is based on the results from a total database of 706 core boreholes (192,045 metres) of which 635 boreholes (179,641 metres) were used for mineral resource estimation purposes.

Resource Statement

Compared to the July 2012 mineral resource statement, the indicated mineral resource tonnage and contained gold have increased by 43% and 38%, respectively, resulting in contained gold of 744,000 ounces grading 9.75 g/t gold. Indicated mineral resources are defined only within the Main Zone, which is informed by higher density of drilling data and better confidence in the geological continuity of the gold mineralization. The inferred mineral resource is estimated at 3,084,000 tonnes grading 7.37 g/t gold for contained gold of 731,000 ounces.

1.  Prepared by SRK Consulting (Canada), Inc. with an effective date of
    February 28, 2014.
2.  Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated
    economic viability. There is
    no certainty that all or any part of the mineral resources will be
    converted into mineral reserves.
3.  All figures have been rounded to reflect the relative accuracy of the
    estimates.
4.  Reported at a cut-off grade of 3.0 g/t gold, assuming an underground
    extraction scenario, a gold price of US$1,200 per ounce and
    metallurgical recovery of 91.7%.
5.  The inferred mineral resource includes 215,000 tonnes at 6.83 g/t gold
    for contained gold of 47,000 ounces in zones F17 and F51, located on the
    Murgor-Cliffs claims immediately adjacent the Main Zone of the Windfall
    Lake Project.

    statement will be filed by Eagle Hill
    on SEDAR at www.SEDAR.com by April 17, 2014.

Upside Potential

The Fall 2013 drilling program confirmed continuity of gold mineralization below the Red Dog intrusion. The inferred mineral resource in Table 1 includes 455,000 tonnes at a grade of 8.21 g/t gold for 120,000 contained ounces of gold below the main Red Dog dike, confirming the continuity of the gold mineralization below that intrusion. This highlights the potential to significantly increase the mineral resource below the Red Dog intrusion. Hole-to-hole induced polarization ("IP") geophysical data confirm the continuity of the pyrite stockwork hosting the Main Zone below the Red Dog intrusion and have defined drilling targets. Deep drilling and additional IP surveys are an exploration priority.

Recent drilling also identified a late phase of gold mineralization within the Red Dog dike that was previously thought to be barren. At the current wide-spaced drilling the new gold mineralization style inside the Red Dog dike contributes only a small tonnage to the inferred mineral resource (249,000 tonnes at 4.26 g/t gold for 34,000 ounces), but highlights the potential for this intrusion to host further mineral resources.

Previously announced drilling in the area to the southwest of the Main Zone confirmed gold mineralization in this area and returned significant gold intercepts. Spacing of existing boreholes is too sparse to confirm continuity between sampling points and support mineral resource evaluation. Additional drilling in this area has the potential to add to the mineral resource of the project.

Eagle Hill is reviewing SRK's technical report for the project, which will include SRK's recommendations for advancing the property. Eagle Hill has commenced a 2,200-metre drilling program to test for extensions of Zone 27 under shallow lakes (2 to 6 metres depth) that are currently frozen. Eagle Hill plans to drill 14 holes to a depth of 120 to 250 metres to test the lateral extensions of Zone 27, where drilling has confirmed near-surface high-grade intervals such as 14.8 g/t gold over 16.0 metres (EAG-12-418). Additional drilling for 2014 will be planned once the Company has reviewed the technical report and considered SRK's recommendations. Eagle Hill will file the technical report on SEDAR at www.sedar.com by April 17, 2014.

Mineral Resource Estimate Methodology

A database comprising 635 core boreholes (179,641 metres), which represents drilling data acquired between 2004 and 2014 by Murgor Resources Inc., Noront Resources Inc. and Eagle Hill, were used for geological modelling and mineral resource estimation. The borehole data include collar location, down-hole survey data, lithology codes and 111,648 sample intervals assayed for gold.

The mineral resource model is based on a complete re-interpretation of the geology of the project, providing a more confident interpretation of the controls on the distribution of the gold mineralization and better confidence in its continuity between the sampling points. Fifteen resource domains were defined within a broad pyrite stockwork zone forming the Main Zone. In addition, the gold mineralization contained in geological domains was also considered (pyrite stockwork and various generations of dikes). Data were extracted from within these domains for geostatistical analysis.

After review, a grade estimation strategy was defined to populate a GEMS block model with gold grade informed from capped composite data using a geostatistical block modelling approach. Appropriate validations were undertaken to ensure that the block model adequately represents the informing composite data. Block estimates were classified into indicated and inferred categories considering confidence in geological interpretation, confidence in geostatistical continuity, estimation and the density of the informing data.

Indicated mineral resources are defined only within the Main Zone, which is informed by higher density of drilling data and better confidence in the geological continuity of the gold mineralization. The mineral resources in all other zones are informed by more widely spaced drilling information or exhibit a lower confidence in geological continuity and thus are appropriately classified in the inferred category.

The mineral resource has been estimated in conformity with the CIM Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves Estimation Best Practices Guidelines and are classified according to the CIM Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves (December 2010) guidelines. The mineral resource statement is reported in accordance with Canadian Securities Administrators' National Instrument 43-101.

About the Windfall Lake Gold Project

The Windfall Lake gold deposit comprises a number of lenses of pyritic stockwork and shear zones situated in the Archean Urban-Barry Greenstone Belt, approximately 200 km northeast of Val d'Or, Quebec. SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc. prepared a mineral resource statement for Eagle Hill in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 in February 2014 comprising 2,375,000 tonnes at 9.75 g/t gold (744,000 ounces) in the indicated category and 3,084,000 tonnes at 7.37 g/t gold (731,000 ounces) in the inferred category. This news release reports this mineral resource estimate. The bulk of the mineralization occurs in the Main Zone, a southwest/northeast trending zone of stacked mineralized lenses, measuring approximately 600 metres wide and at least 1,400 metres long.

Qualified Person

The construction of the mineral resource model was a collaborative effort between Eagle Hill and SRK personnel. The resource estimation work was completed by Dr. Jean-Francois Ravenelle PGeo (OGQ#1062), Dorota El-Rassi, PEng (APEO #100012348) and Dominic Chartier, PGeo (OGQ#874) under the supervision of Glen Cole, PGeo (APGO #1416). By virtue of their education, relevant project experience, and affiliation to a recognized professional association, Dr. Ravenelle, Ms. El-Rassi, Mr. Chartier and Mr. Cole, are "qualified persons" independent from Eagle Hill for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Cole has reviewed the information contained in this news release.

The technical information in this document has been reviewed by Eagle Hill's Vice President Exploration, Jean-Philippe Desrochers, PhD, PGeo, who has sufficient experience relevant to the style of mineralization under consideration and qualifies as a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The drill program and sampling protocol is managed by Eagle Hill under the supervision of Jean-Philippe Desrochers. The diamond drill holes are drilled at NQ sizes and core recovery to date has averaged better than 95.0%. Half core is cut by rock saw and is generally sampled using nominal 1-metre intervals; however, sample intervals vary according to geological contacts and have ranged between 0.3 to 1.5 metres in length. Two quality control samples (one blank and one certified reference material) are inserted into each batch of 20 samples. All assays were performed by ALS Chemex Laboratory Group, in Val d'Or, Quebec. The half core samples are securely transported from the project site to the ALS Chemex laboratory by Eagle Hill personnel. Gold analyses reported in this release were performed by standard fire assay using a 50-gram charge with atomic absorption finish and a gravimetric finish for assays greater than 10 grams per tonne and by metallic sieve method for samples containing significant amounts of pyrite or visible gold. In addition, an Aqua regia digestion with ICP-AES finish is used to analyse a full suite of elements including silver and base metals.
