Hinterland Acquires Four REE Properties In Kipawa Area, Quebec

VAL D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 14, 2009) - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:HMI) is pleased to announce that it has obtained a 100% interest in four individual properties by map designation of 138 claims collectively covering approximately 8100ha. The properties are located in the Kipawa area in the southwestern corner of Quebec, roughly 200km northeast of the town of Temiscaming. Registration of the claim titles is pending with Quebec's Ministry of Natural Resources and Wildlife.

The Kipawa area has long been known for its Rare Earth Element ("REE'), zircon ("Zr") and yttrium ("Y") potential (Matamec) but recent exploration in the area has been more focused on its uranium and gold potential (Aurizon, Fieldex, Globex). REE-Zr-Y mineralization in the area is generally related to the Kipawa Syenite Complex ("KSC") that occurs as a 100 to 300m thick, sheet-like body which can be traced around an arc-like structure for almost 100km from Lac Sairs to Lac Audoin. A regionally characteristic feature of the KSC is very high Y values in stream sediments. During a preliminary data compilation of the Kipawa area it was noted that four areas with anomalously high yttrium values were open to staking. The Company immediately acquired these areas by map designation as the Atwater, Jean-Talon, Maisonneuve and Lachine claim blocks. Moreover, the Atwater block is underlain by the KSC, and the Jean-Talon block is also underlain by a syenite body although it is not been confirmed to be part of the KSC. The Company has initiated an extensive data compilation of the Kipawa region and intends to mobilize a field crew onto its properties as soon as possible.
