Hinterland Acquires Moulin Rouge Gold Project Near Quevillon, Quebec

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 21, 2010) - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:HMI) is pleased to announce that it has acquired a new gold project by staking the 27-claim (1524ha) Moulin and the 66-claim (3720ha) Rouge blocks. The two blocks were selected based on a regional compilation of the Quevillon area. Quevillon has seen a recent surge in exploration with North American Palladium working to upgrade the resources at its Discovery and Flordin gold deposits, located about 40km north of Quevillon, with the goal of trucking ore from these deposits to its Sleeping Giant mill located north of Amos, Quebec (N.A. Palladium Press Release April 6, 2010).

Moulin is located 1km east of Quevillon and covers 6.0km of a mineralized structure marked by a magnetic high and a train of INPUT electromagnetic anomalies. Located on this same structure approximately 6.7km due east is the Toussaint deposit which contains an historical, NI43-101 non-compliant resource of 43,000 ounces of gold (GM 52557). Very limited exploration work has been done on Moulin with only seven shallow drill holes documented. Values up to 3.8gpt Au were reported from a till geochemical survey completed in 1993 (GM 52671). 

The Rouge claim block is located 5km north of Quevillon. It is directly adjacent to and was staked to cover the potential eastward extension of Maudore Minerals' Comtois gold project which contains a NI43-101 compliant resource estimate of 524,000 inferred ounces of gold (Roscoe Postle Associates Inc, 2002). Drilling is ongoing at the Comtois project and a revised mineral estimate is expected for the second quarter of 2010 (Maudore Press Release March 24, 2010). Rouge has seen very little exploration work with only 11 shallow drill holes documented.

An exploration crew is currently prospecting and sampling on the Moulin Rouge project with the goal of locating trenching and drilling targets.
