VAL-D'OR, QC, Nov. 6 /CNW/ - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSXV:HMI) is pleased
to announce that it has reached an arms-length agreement to acquire the
"Raney" gold property located some 130km southwest of Timmins, Ontario.
Hinterland has secured a drill that will be mobilized to the property in
mid-November to test two known surface showings as well as several geophysical
The property is located in the Archean Swayze Greenstone Belt and is
underlain by felsic to intermediate volcanic and feldspar porphyry intrusive
rocks. Two surface showings have been identified to date. The first showing
has returned grab samples up to 8.6g/t Au from quartz veins and up to 1.0 g/t
Au from altered rock adjacent to the quartz veins. A single drill hole
completed in 1999 by the property vendor returned 3.4g/t Au over 6.8m.
Re-sampling of this drill intersection returned a similar result of 3.9g/t
over 5.9m. The second showing is found roughly 250m southwest of the first and
is marked by strongly sheared feldspar porphyry. Historical values up to 27g/t
Au have been reported from quartz veins at this showing but no significant
gold values have been returned from the adjacent altered, sheared wall rock.
Under the terms of the agreement Hinterland has the option to earn a 100%
interest in the property for $90,000 cash and 300,000 treasury shares
scheduled over a two year period subject to a two-part production royalty (the
"Royalty") consisting of a 2.5% Net Smelter Returns royalty on smeltable
materials and a 2.5% Gross Overriding Receipts royalty on diamonds. Hinterland
will have the right to buy back the first 1.5% of the Royalty for $1,500,000
and will have the right of first refusal on the remaining 1.0%. The agreement
is subject to approval by the Hinterland's Board of Directors and by
regulatory authorities in compliance with applicable securities legislation.
