Hinterland and Kakanda OtishU JV Airborne Survey

    Shares Issued 42,202,201

    VAL d'OR, QC, April 26 /CNW/ - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSXV:HMI) and
"OtishU" joint venture partner Kakanda Resources Inc. (TSXV:KRC) are pleased
to announce that Prospectair Inc. has been engaged to complete combined
helicopter-borne electromagnetic, magnetic and spectrometer survey over the
Euro and Tonka properties in the Otish Mountain area of Quebec. The expected
start date of the survey is May 20, 2007 contingent upon snow conditions at
that time.
    The Otish basin is being actively explored for uranium most notably at
the Matoush Project where Strateco Resources Inc. has recently announced drill
hole intersections of up to 2.13% U(3)O(8) over 15.2m (Strateco Press Release:
February 20, 2007). The Euro property covers the southwest margins of the
Paskwati Proterozoic sedimentary basin which is an outlier located 45km
southwest of the main Otish basin. The Tonka property is underlain primarily
by sedimentary rocks of the Indicator Lake Formation and it straddles the
unconformity contact with the underlying granitic complex along the southern
margin of the basin. It is also cut by a major northeast-trending fault. Both
properties offer potential for classic unconformity-type uranium
mineralization both below and above the unconformity surface as well as the
fault-type found at Matoush.
    The companies also wish to announce that the OtishU joint venture has
applied for an additional 262 mineral titles (13,886 hectares) by map
designation. This block of staking covers the southeastern margin of the Otish
basin. The Ministère des Ressources naturelles has acknowledged receipt of
these applications and the joint venture is currently waiting for mineral
title certificates to be issued.
