    Shares Issued 37,257,201

    VAL D'OR, QC, April 4 /CNW/ - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSXV:HMI) is
pleased to announce that it has doubled the Hearne Uranium property to
12,850ha by additional staking. The property is located approximately 120km
west of Churchill in Northern Manitoba. It covers the southern lobe of the
Paleoproterozoic Seal River Basin and is in part underlain by sulphide-bearing
quartzite and quartz-pebble conglomerate. At least three bands of pyritic
conglomerates enriched in uranium were identified by previous workers in the
late 1970's. Chip sampling of the conglomerate bands yielded up to 0.10lb/ton
U(3)O(8) over widths up to 15m. Subsequent shallow drilling intersected an
upper band of 0.48lb/ton U(3)O(8) over 3m and a lower band of 0.24lb/ton     
U(3)O(8) over 5m. The new staking extends the known strike length of the
sulphide-bearing quartzite and quartz-pebble conglomerate on the Hearne
property to approximately 11km
    Hinterland intends to begin its uranium exploration program with an
airborne radiometric, magnetic and electromagnetic survey over the Hearne
property as soon as conditions permit. The previously reported surface uranium
showings will also be re-examined and sampled as soon as possible. Hinterland
is seeking equity or joint venture financing to fund this exploration project.
