Hinterland Acquires Lac Surprise Claims in Quebec

VAL D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - April 9, 2014) - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:HMI) ("Hinterland") is pleased to announce that it has recently acquired by staking the 14-claim (784-ha) Surprise property (the "Property") located approximately 45km south of Chapais in the Abitibi region of Quebec. A newly completed compilation by Hinterland indicates that the Property is prospective for gold based on favourable geology, structure and the results of past work. Five historical drill holes are documented on the Property. Hole LS-6 drilled by Esso in 1987 returned two gold intersections of 1.0g/t over 1.5m from 90m and 2.0g/t Au over 1.2m from 105m (Quebec GM 46947). Moreover the potential of this region has been exemplified by the recent exploration activity and new gold discoveries reported in drill holes by Tomagold Corp. on its Monster Lake project located 20km northeast of the Property, and Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. on its Nelligan project located 15km east of the Property. Hinterland intends to complete prospecting, mapping and sampling over its claims in 2014 at an approximate cost of $30,000 subject to successful financing. The goal of the work will be to identify drill targets for the 2015 winter drilling season. Hinterland is actively seeking a joint venture partner to participate in exploration of the Property.
