Hinterland Starts Drilling at Raney Gold Project, Ontario
| ||VAL D'Or, QC, Dec, 12 - Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSXV:HMI) is pleased to announce that a drill has been mobilized to the "Raney" gold property located some 130km southwest of Timmins, Ontario. The property is located in the Archean Swayze Greenstone Belt and is underlain by felsic to intermediate volcanic and feldspar porphyry intrusive rocks. Two surface showings have been identified to date. The first showing has returned grab samples up to 8.6g/t Au from quartz veins and up to 1.0 g/t Au from altered rock adjacent to the quartz veins. A single drill hole completed in 1999 by the property vendor returned 3.4g/t Au over 6.8m. Re-sampling of this drill intersection returned a similar result of 3.9g/t over 5.9m. The second showing is found roughly 250m southwest of the first and is marked by strongly sheared feldspar porphyry. Historical values up to 27g/t Au have been reported from quartz veins at this showing but no significant gold values have been returned from the adjacent altered, sheared wall rock. The drilling will test the extension of the mineralization encountered by the 1999 drilling and will also test the second showing. A number of induced polarization anomalies may also be drilled.|
