    VAL D'OR, QC, Dec. 11 /CNW/ - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSXV:HMI) is
pleased to announce that a drill has been mobilized to the Plateau PGE Project
located 35km southeast of Matagami Quebec. The drilling will test a number of
geophysical and geochemical targets derived from surveys completed earlier

palladium ("PGE") zone discovered by drilling in October 2006 (Hinterland
Press Release November 21, 2006) and further tested early in 2007 (Hinterland
Press Release March 13, 2007). A broad zone of PGE mineralization hosted
within pyroxenite gabbro ranging from 6.7 to 31.1m wide was intersected by the
latest drilling over a horizontal distance of 300m. Weighted average
intersections of the zone vary from 0.10 to 1.07g/t PGE with maximum
individual values up to 2.52g/t PGE. Drilling will commence immediately and
will continue until the end of January 2008.
