VAL D’OR, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – March 14, 2016) – Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:HMI) (“Hinterland”) is pleased to announce the sale of its 100% owned, 16-claim (558-hectare) Lockout property (the “Property”) to Beaufield Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BFD) (“Beaufield”). The Property is located in the Barry-Urban area of Quebec, four kilometres east of the Windfall gold deposit currently being actively drilled and explored.

The property hosts the Panache gold zone discovered by Hinterland in 2007. Exploration to date has concentrated on this one kilometre long gold-bearing structure. Historical drilling highlights include intersections of up to 5.9 g/t Au over 3.0m within a wider zone of 1.9 g/t Au over 14.1m, with the best assay within this intersection being 15.8 g/t Au over 1.0m (see Hinterland news release dated June 16, 2010).

The Panache gold zone remains open along strike and down dip. It is projected to continue southwest onto Beaufield’s Urban property where winter drilling will be undertaken. A significant portion of the new claims remain to be explored.

Under the terms of the agreement, Beaufield has purchased a 100% interest in the Property by paying $50,000 cash and issuing 250,000 of its common shares to Hinterland. Hinterland will retain a 2.0% Net Smelter Returns royalty (the “Royalty”) on all mineral production from the Property. Beaufield will have the right to purchase one half (i.e., 1.0%) of the royalty interest for $1 million cash and will have a right of first refusal on the remaining 1.0%. The agreement is subject to approval by regulatory authorities in compliance with applicable securities legislation.
