Golden Eagle Settles Litigation and Other Issues With Former Director

Golden Eagle Settles Litigation and Other Issues With Former Director

SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 02/07/08 -- Golden Eagle International, Inc. (OTCBB: MYNG) announced today that it has settled its litigation and all other pending issues with Kevin K. Pfeffer, a former member of the Company's board of directors who served from January of 2003 through December of 2006.

As a result of two agreements executed among all of the parties that became effective as of February 1, 2008, Golden Eagle voluntarily dismissed a lawsuit on January 29, 2008 that it had filed in the Federal District Court for Utah on September 5, 2007 entitled, "Golden Eagle International, Inc. and Turner v. Kevin K. Pfeffer," 2:07-CV-662-TC (D. Utah; 2007).

In addition, the Company settled an outstanding promissory note and other associated expenses that it owed Mr. Pfeffer from his time on Golden Eagle's board.

The agreements among the parties also resolve "any and all outstanding allegations, claims, disputes and controversies."

"I am pleased that we have settled our differences amicably, which I hope will make it easier for the Company to move forward in developing its opportunities in Bolivia and Nevada," stated Kevin K. Pfeffer. "Highly favorable gold and copper prices, and the Company's ongoing development work, I believe made it clear to all parties that the time had come to focus single-mindedly on creating real value for Golden Eagle's shareholders without distraction."

Golden Eagle's CEO Terry Turner stated: "We appreciate Mr. Pfeffer's years of service on our board of directors and are glad to have these matters resolved. We will now concentrate 100% of our energies on advancing our gold and copper exploration and production projects in Bolivia and Nevada."

Golden Eagle International, Inc. is a gold and copper exploration and mining company headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah and with offices also in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The Company is concentrating its efforts on expanding its pilot operations into production operations on its gold project on the C Zone within its 136,500 acres (213 square miles) in eastern Bolivia's Precambrian Shield. The Company is also continuing the development of its Buen Futuro A Zone gold and copper project. In addition, Golden Eagle is working with industry consultants regarding the potential expansion of its operations through maximizing the potential of, or selling to third parties and reinvesting the proceeds from, its Gold Bar 3,500 to 4,500 tpd CIP mill located in Eureka, Nevada.

The Company highly recommends that you review its disclosures, risk statements, previous press releases, annual reports, quarterly reports and current reports found at its website: www.geii.com.
