    Shares Issued 42,677,201

    TORONTO, Aug. 1 /CNW/ - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSXV:HMI) is pleased to
announce that exploration work has commenced on the Hearne uranium project
located approximately 120km west of Churchill in Northern Manitoba. The
property covers the southern lobe of the Paleoproterozoic Seal River Basin and
is partly 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 U3O8 over widths up to 15m.
Subsequent shallow drilling intersected an upper band of  0.48lb/ton U3O8 over
3m and a lower band of 0.24lb/ton U3O8 over 5m.
    The exploration work includes a high sensitivity combined magnetometer
and spectrometer airborne survey covering an area of approximately 100 square
kilometers to be completed by Prospectair Inc. of Gatineau Quebec. The work
also includes ground prospecting and sampling to be completed by Hinterland
personnel in the area of the previous work and also along the 11km strike
length of known uranium mineralization.
