    Shares Issued 43,502,201

    VAL-D'OR, QC, Nov. 27 /CNW/ - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSXV:HMI) is
pleased to announce that it has acquired three mineral exploration licenses
approximately 90km southeast of Thompson, Manitoba that together cover
22,940 hectares. The new property includes the entire area of the Utik Lake
Greenstone Belt that was recently mapped by the Manitoba Geological Survey
(Bohm and Kremer, 2007).
    The greenstone belt at Utik Lake forms an east- to northeast-trending,
steeply dipping succession of mafic metavolcanic and related intrusive rocks
interlayered with metsedimentary sequences including iron formations,
mudstones and mafic volcanic derived conglomerates. This succession is
overlain by younger sequence of sedimentary rocks including polymictic
conglomerates, turbidites, greywackes and sandstones. The Utik Lake
supracrustal rocks are bounded by and intruded by younger felsic plutonic
    The main economic potential of the Utik Lake area is for stratiform-type
and orogenic (shear related) gold. Recently presented assay results by the
Manitoba Geological Survey included gold values up to 8.5 g/t from samples of
sulphide-bearing chert in banded iron formations that have been mapped up to
several metres wide over continuous strike lengths of a few kilometres. The
Utik Lake supracrustal rocks are locally well sheared by major
northwest-trending dextral shears that give rise to extensional (dilational)
structures that are very favourable for gold deposition. The belt also has
minor potential for paleoplacer gold mineralization and Volcanic-associated
Massive Sulphide (VMS) copper-zinc deposits.
    Stratiform-type gold deposits are significant in Canada. The Lupin mine
in Nunavut produced 3.1M ounces of gold at an average grade of 9.3 g/t gold
(NRCAN Website - http://www.nrcan.gc.ca/ms/cmy/2005revu/gol_e.htm). The
Musselwhite mine in Northwestern Ontario has produced over 1.7M ounces and
continues to produce an average of 150,000 ounces per year from current
reserves of 1.2M ounces (Goldcorp Website -
