:: Golden Eagle Appoints Experienced Chief Operating Officer

Golden Eagle International, Inc. announced that its board of directors has appointed Blane W. Wilson as its Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Wilson's immediate focus will be on the development of various potential business opportunities for the Company's Gold Bar CIP gold mill located 25 miles northwest of Eureka, Nevada. However, his responsibilities will also include the oversight of the current construction on the C Zone gold mill located on Golden Eagle's Precambrian properties in eastern Bolivia, as well as the ongoing in -fill drilling program and feasibility work being carried out on the Company's A Zone Buen Futuro gold and copper project.

Blane Wilson has 24 years of experience managing milling and processing operations in the mining industry. He is leaving his position as Corporate Operations Manager for Queenstake Resources USA's Jerritt Canyon gold mine, which is located north of Elko, Nevada. Blane Wilson has been at the Jerritt Canyon operation for 19 years in various positions, including: Mill Foreman, Process Superintendent and Process Manager. Since 1981, the Jerritt Canyon mine has produced more than 8 million troy ounces of gold. At the Jerritt Canyon mine, Mr. Wilson oversaw a $33 million annual budget and managed a workforce of 154 personnel. He has also served on Golden Eagle's Technical Advisory Board since February of 2008 and has advised the Company in the past on various potential projects involving the Gold Bar mill.

"I am very pleased to join Golden Eagle's management team at a time when gold is at an all-time high and the Company's Gold Bar mill is sitting in the middle of a number of interesting opportunities in central Nevada," stated Mr. Wilson. "While I have agreed with the Company's management to concentrate my immediate attention on the Gold Bar mill project, I am committed to moving forward with all available resources, and as quickly as possible, toward the development of the A and C Zone projects in Bolivia as well."

"Blane Wilson has the experience, knowledge and ability to help Golden Eagle develop its potential," said Company CEO, Terry Turner. "We feel extremely fortunate that Blane is willing to join us and look forward to the positive impact that he will have on our projects."
