VAL d'OR, QC, March 1 /CNW/ - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSXV: HMI)
("Hinterland") is pleased to announce that it has awarded Forages Mercier Inc.
of Val d'Or, Quebec the contract to drill at the Olé Volcanic Massive
Sulphide-type ("VMS") Copper-Zinc Property located north of Amos, Quebec. The
goal of the program will be to evaluate the economic and metallogenic
significance of a strongly magnetic and strongly conductive feature identified
by recent geophysical surveys in the central portion of the grid measuring
approximately 300m by 300m. The geophysical interpretation of this feature is
a thick, sub-horizontal, tabular lens of massive sulphides. This
interpretation agrees with observations made in surface trenches where
flat-lying, well-banded sulphides are found within intermediate volcanic rocks
that show alteration typical of VMS deposits. Initially, Hinterland intends to
drill 600m in five sub-vertical holes.
Elsewhere in Quebec assay results are pending on eight holes recently
drilled at the Plateau PGE Project located 35km southeast of Matagami Quebec
in order to follow-up Hinterland's unprecedented discovery of reef-type
platinum and palladium ("PGE") mineralization announced on November 21, 2006
where 1.9g/t combined PGE over 3.0m was intersected in drill hole EB06-05. An
induced polarization survey has recently started on the property as well.
