Eaglecrest Discovers High-Grade Gold  

VANCOUVER, BC - Eaglecrest Explorations Ltd. reported that first-pass sampling over a 10-day field period discovered up to 8.25 grams per tonne gold and 47.5 grams per tonne silver in outcrop channel chip samples from the eastern portion of the unexplored Fredonia Project, Antioquia, Colombia. Additionally, in the central potion of the project, gold mineralization was discovered in diorite porphyry and volcanic breccia at 0.33 grams per tonne gold and 5.4 grams per tonne silver.

"These early results from the Fredonia project are further evidence that we have secured a very good area," explained CEO, Hans Rasmussen. "We executed an initial reconnaissance program including the area surrounding Bellhaven Resources' La Mina Project. The gold mineralization in the area provides a locus from which to begin our 2011 Exploration Program. The surface gold and copper mineralization found in the nearby Venecia area implies a large scope to the overall land package."

In the eastern sector of the Fredonia project, named El Retiro, rock chip samples from a 0.8 metre channel sample returned values of up to 8.25 grams per tonne gold and 47.5 grams per tonne silver. Gold mineralization occurs in quartz veins, hosted in Proterozoic metamorphic rocks. The area was first identified by Grupo de Bullet personnel. The area was identified from small-scale artisan mining along several vein-structures in the area.Numerous veins in outcrop were also identified for follow-up on future field campaigns.

In the Quebrada Garrucha sector, in the central portion of the project, 2 kilometres east of Bellhaven's La Mina Concession, rock chip samples from a two-metre channel returned up to 0.33 grams per tonne gold and 5.4 grams per tonne silver from a mineralized volcanic breccia body in andesitic volcanic rocks and dioritic porphyry rocks. Rock chip samples from mineralized faults returned up to 7.5 grams per tonne silver. The breccia body is strongly mineralized with visible minerals associated with the mineralizing event (e.g. pyrite, sphalerite, pyrrhotite and jarosite). Several other breccia bodies were identified in the field transect - they will be targets of future mapping and sampling in the sector.
