Hinterland Metals Inc. (TSXV:HMI) reported results obtained from the two claim (610-hectare) McIntyre property located 80 kilometres west of Bathurst, New Brunswick. Hinterland holds an option to acquire a 100% interest in McIntyre. The exploration work described herein was partially funded by a $20,000 grant from the New Brunswick Junior Mining Assistance Program.
Hinterland completed prospecting and geochemical sampling programs on McIntyre from mid-May to late June 2014 and collected a total of 19 rocks samples and 307 soil samples. All of the McIntyre rock samples were selected grabs from the east-trending McIntyre Brook zone, which was previously identified over a strike of 300 metres by the property vendor. Of the 19 rock samples collected, six returned values greater than 1.00 grams per tonne gold (g/t Au), ranging from 2.14 up to 8.12 g/t Au; and six samples returned values greater than 0.10 g/t Au, ranging from 0.13 up to 0.92 g/t Au. The gold component is associated with semi-massive specular hematite found within quartz veins and stockworks in an alteration zone that varies from 5 to 20 metres wide. Seventeen analytical results, ranging from 7 to 162 parts per billion gold (ppb Au), were obtained from soil samples collected over the McIntyre Brook zone, and are considered highly anomalous. The spatial distribution of these anomalous gold-in-soil results suggests that the McIntyre Brook zone continues for at least 500m from west to east before being offset to the south by approximately 150 metres.
