VAL D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 21, 2013) - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:HMI) is pleased to announce that it has completed a 508 kilometre airborne geophysical survey over the 67-claim (2,882 hectare) Mozart property located approximately 60 kilometres northeast of Val-d'Or, Quebec. The property covers an under-explored, ten-kilometre long segment of the Carpentier-Courville deformation corridor which is known for both shear-hosted gold and volcanic massive sulphide-type deposits. In December 2011, Hinterland drilled a total of 1,186 metres in seven holes at the far south end of the property and encountered several gold-bearing intervals as well as numerous intervals of barren massive sulphide (Hinterland Press Release - March 22, 2012).
The combined airborne magnetic and electromagnetic survey was flown over the Mozart property in order to define and resolve numerous volcanic massive sulphide-type horizons as well as identify potential shear-type gold structures. A total of 11 new target areas have been identified. The airborne geophysical data is plotted on a number of maps now available at Hinterland's website. Hinterland intends to evaluate these targets with surface prospecting, trenching and sampling, and detailed ground geophysical surveys in 2013. Drilling is expected to be done in early 2014 based on the 2013 surface results.
