Val d’Or, Quebec – Hinterland Metals Inc. (HMI: TSX-Venture) (“Hinterland”) is pleased to announce that it has staked 102 mineral claim units (5,750 hectares) in two blocks within the Urban-Barry Greenstone Belt located in the eastern part of the Abitibi Sub-province. The Urban-Barry Greenstone Belt has an east-west extent of 135 kilometres and varies from 4 to 20 kilometres wide (http://www.hinterlandmetals.com/i/maps/Skyfall/skyfall-comp.pdf).
The newly staked claims are directly adjacent to Osisko Mining Inc.’s Urban-Barry property and similarly are underlain by a series of northeast-trending, southeast-dipping, tholeiitic volcanic rocks. The volcanic stratigraphy is intersected by numerous faults, either sub-parallel to the stratigraphy or northeast-trending at a high angle to the stratigraphy. The volcanic rocks are in places within the Belt intruded by syn-volcanic to late (post mineralization) intrusions. Osisko’s Windfall project is the most advanced project in the Belt with a 400,000 metre deposit definition drilling program underway (www.osiskomining.com/projects/urban_barry). Bonterra Resources Inc. is the second most active company in the area with a 40,000 metre drill program underway at its Gladiator project (www.bonterraresources.com/en/gladiator/overview). The Skyfall claims, located approximately 40 kilometres due east of the Windfall and Gladiator projects, have seen limited previous exploration work with only one documented drill hole. Hinterland intends to seek joint venture or equity financing to fund exploration on Skyfall.
