Hinterland intersects broad Platinum and Palladium zone at Plateau Project, Quebec

    Shares Issued 37,257,201

    VAL d'OR, QC, March 13 /CNW/ - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSXV:HMI) is
pleased to announce assay results from eight holes recently drilled at the
Plateau PGE Project located 35km southeast of Matagami, Quebec. The drilling
was done in order to test the extent and nature of the platinum and palladium
("PGE") zone discovered by drilling in October 2006 (Hinterland Press Release
November 21, 2006). A broad zone of PGE mineralization hosted within
pyroxenite gabbro ranging from 6.7 to 31.1m wide was intersected by the latest
drilling over a horizontal distance of 300m. Weighted average intersections of
the zone vary from 0.10 to 1.07g/t PGE with maximum individual values up to
2.52g/t PGE. A summary table of the weighted averages is attached to this
release. A long section of the drilling will be posted to Hinterland's website
    "We expected the drilling to define a narrow PGE layer but instead we
have encountered a broad zone of mineralization. Clearly we have discovered a
system of substantial PGE enrichment. This outcome strongly encourages more
surface work and drilling in order to uncover the richest part of the system,"
stated Mark Fekete, Hinterland's President and CEO.
    The PGE zone is marked by coincident magnetic, induced polarization and
soil geochemical anomalies. A high-definition aero-magnetic survey completed
in June 2006 traces the magnetic anomaly for 4.8km. An induced polarization
survey is currently underway on the property to be followed later in the
spring by a soil geochemical survey. The combined data from these three
surveys will provide more precise target selection for future drilling.

Metals Inc. will record a "Beyond The Press Release" on the Company's official
Investor Relations Site. The recording will discuss in "layman's" terms the
