Southern Arc Agrees to Purchase Additional Shares and Warrants in Eagle Hill Exploration

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/28/14 -- Southern Arc Minerals (TSX VENTURE: SA)(OTCQX: SOACF) ("Southern Arc") today announced that the Company has agreed to purchase additional shares and warrants in Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation ("Eagle Hill") (TSX VENTURE: EAG)(OTCQX: EHECF). Eagle Hill is a Canadian mineral exploration company focused on the exploration and development of the high-grade Windfall Lake Gold Deposit, located between Val-d'Or and Chibougamau in Quebec. As part of Eagle Hill's recently announced non-brokered private placement of $3.5 million (the "Offering"), Southern Arc has agreed to purchase approximately 3.6 million units directly from Eagle Hill, and a further 7.5 million units in a structured transaction involving the issuance of flow-through units to investors, their donation to charity and subsequent resale by charities to Southern Arc. Southern Arc has agreed to pay $0.07 per unit, for a total investment of $776,315.72. Each unit consists of one common share (a "Share") of Eagle Hill and one share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") of Eagle Hill. Each Warrant entitles Southern Arc to acquire one Share at a price of $0.10 for a period of two years following closing of the Offering.

In August 2013, Southern Arc invested $7,324,050 to acquire 97,654,000 shares of Eagle Hill and 48,827,000 warrants of Eagle Hill exercisable at a price of $0.10 until August 14, 2017. Flowing closing of the current Offering, which is subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance, it is anticipated that Southern Arc will hold 108,744,226 Eagle Hill shares, representing 23.9% of Eagle Hill's issued and outstanding shares. It is anticipated that Southern Arc will also hold 59,917,226 Eagle Hill warrants with an average exercise price of $0.10 which, if all Eagle Hill options and warrants are exercised, would represent a 27.6% interest in Eagle Hill on a fully diluted basis. Dundee Corporation ("Dundee") (TSX: DC.A) is also participating in the Offering and has agreed to purchase approximately 10.7 million units. Upon closing of the Offering, it is anticipated that Dundee will own 28.9% of Eagle Hill on an undiluted basis, and 28.3% on a fully diluted basis.

"This further investment underscores Southern Arc's belief that the Windfall Lake Gold Project continues to be one of the highest-quality resource-stage gold projects in the world in one of the best mining jurisdictions," said John Proust, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Southern Arc. "Southern Arc's investment in August 2013 allowed Windfall Lake to be significantly advanced in 2013, upgrading and expanding the mineral resource and confirming continuity of mineralization both along strike and at depth. We look forward to working with Dundee Corporation to continue to advance the project in 2014, bringing additional value to Southern Arc shareholders through this investment."

On behalf of the Board of Southern Arc Minerals Inc.
