October 28, 2009 Hinterland Metals announced that gold values were intersected in all seven holes recently drilled on the Lockout gold project. Gold mineralization is found along the upper and lower contacts of a graphitic unit within mafic volcanic rocks and appears to be related to porphyry dykes injected next to the contacts. Highlights of the drilling include gold intersections up to 5.2g/t Au over 2.0m included in a zone of 1.7g/t Au over 7.0m from Hole LK09-11. Intersections vary from 6.2 to 12.9m in width and from 0.6 to 1.7g/t Au in grade. The most important outcome of the drill program is that it shows on-strike continuity of the gold-bearing structure up to one kilometre long. The “Panache” gold zone remains open in all directions.
May 31, 2008 A grid was cut on the property.
In June 2007 the Company completed a 854m diamond drilling in five holes in this area of previous drilling.
Four of the five holes intersected anomalous gold values with a best gold value of 4.92 g/t Au over 0.50 in LK07-04. Generally, the elevated gold values relate to felsic porphyry with strong local sericite, carbonate and fuchsite alteration and fine-grained disseminated sulphide mineralization.
March 31, 2007 The Company will be focusing its exploration in this area initially with tight-spaced geophysical surveys, followed by trenching and ultimately by diamond drilling in June 2007.
