    Shares Issued 47,143,001

    VAL-D'OR, QC, Feb. 21 /CNW/ - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSXV:HMI) is
pleased to report the second batch of assay results from a drill program that
commenced in early December 2007 and is still underway on the Ebay property
located 35km southeast of Matagami in the Abitibi region of Quebec. Prior to
the current program Hinterland completed 14 drill holes and made an
unprecedented discovery of 1.9g/t combined platinum and palladium ("PGE") over
3.0m in hole EB06-05 (HMI Press Release November 21, 2006).
    The second batch of assays includes results from holes EB07-19 to 23.
Holes EB07-20 to 23 did not return any significant intersections. However,
Hole EB07-19 encountered two notable platinum-palladium bearing intervals as
follows:

    
     From m     To m     Int. m     PGE g/t     Max PGE g/t     Pt:Pd ratio
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      60.2      74.0      13.8       0.13          0.38            1:1.2
     115.0     123.0       8.0       0.63          0.83            1:1.3
    

    The intervals also yield anomalous gold, copper and nickel values.
Hinterland is presently drilling hole EB08-36. Assay results are pending for
holes EB07-24 to EB08-36 and they will be released in batches as they are
received.
