    Shares Issued 47,143,001

    VAL-D'OR, QC, Feb. 14 /CNW/ - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSXV:HMI) is
pleased to report the first batch of assay results from a drill program that
commenced in early December 2007 and is still underway on the Ebay property
located 35km southeast of Matagami in the Abitibi region of Quebec. Prior to
the current program Hinterland completed 14 drill holes on the Ebay property.
The highlight of the previous drilling was the unprecedented discovery of
1.9g/t combined platinum and palladium ("PGE") over 3.0m in hole EB06-05 (HMI
Press Release November 21, 2006).
    To date on the current program Hinterland has received assay results for
holes EB07-15 to 18. Holes EB07-15, 16 and 18 did not return any significant
assay results. However, Hole EB07-17 intersected 0.30g/t PGE over 11.0m from
43.6 to 54.6m.
    The PGE-bearing zone in EB07-17 occurs within pyroxene-rich melagabbro
immediately below the contact with banded leucogabbro. The platinum to
palladium ratio is favourable at 2:3. The maximum assay found within the zone
is 0.78g/t PGE. The zone also yields anomalous gold, copper and nickel values.
Hinterland is presently drilling Hole EB08-34. Assay results are pending for
holes EB07-19 to EB08-34 and they will be released in batches as they are
received. Mark Fekete, President and CEO states: "We look forward to more
encouraging results from the PGE system at Ebay as the drill program
