Val-d’Or, Québec – Hinterland Metals Inc. (HMI: TSX-Venture) (“Hinterland” or the “Company”) announces that it has terminated the earn-in Agreement with Alto Ventures Ltd. (ATV:TSX-Venture) (“Alto“), whereby Hinterland was to earn an interest in Alto’s Destiny property located approximately 75 kilometres north of Val-d’Or, Quebec.  Due to financial market conditions, Hinterland intends to instead work on its portfolio of 100% owned properties located in the Abitibi and Eeyou Istchee James Bay regions of Quebec.

Hinterland is currently focused on its “Radius 100” strategy that will see exploration work carried out at the drill ready Guyberry, Mozart and Tardiff gold projects. These properties all lie within a radius of 100 km of each other, and as such are mutually beneficial in terms of operations and logistics. They are all road accessible from Val-d’Or.  The Company also intends to advance its Skyfall Gold project located east of Osisko Mining’s Windfall deposit in the Urban-Barry Greenstone belt approximately 75 kilometres south of Chapais, Quebec.  All of Hinterland’s current properties are available of option, sale or joint venture

Shareholders, potential investors and other interested parties are invited to visit Hinterland’s new website which features the Company’s new “An Eye on Discovery” logo, and describes the Company’s current project and royalty portfolio.
