Midlands Minerals is focused on developing a portfolio of high quality gold exploration projects in Ghana and Tanzania, countries with exceptional histories of gold production and home to some of the most profitable gold mines in Africa. Midland's flagship gold property is the Sian project, site of a past producing open pit gold mine located in the Ashanti gold belt. Sian has NI 43-101 compliant Indicated gold resources of 2.6 million tonnes grading 2.33 gpt gold (192,400 ounces) and Inferred gold resources of 2.7 million tonnes grading 2.35 gpt gold (203,350 ounces). Extensions to these resources are open along strike and at depth, highlighting the potential to grow the gold resource at Sian. Midlands' highly prospective Kaniago gold project is located in Ghana's Asankrangwa gold belt and contiguous to two past open pit gold producers: Abore to the north and Obotan to the south. Recent drilling and exploration has produced highly encouraging results, demonstrating the gold resource potential of the project.

Midlands also has two gold exploration projects in the Lake Victoria Goldfields in Tanzania. The Itilima project is located in the prolific Geita-Bulyanhulu-Sekenke gold belt, host to over 40 million ounces in gold reserves, as well as the Kilindi-Handeni project.

Please note: mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Additional information on Midlands can be viewed under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com or on Midlands' website: www.midlandsminerals.com.
