Midland Commences an Exploration Field Program on Its James Bay Gold Project
Near Goldcorp's Eleonore Deposit 
MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Aug. 13, 2014) - Midland Exploration Inc.
("Midland") (TSX VENTURE:MD) is pleased to report the beginning of an
exploration program and the staking of additional map designated claims for its
100% owned James Bay Eleonore Gold project located in James Bay, Quebec. A
total of 80 claims, covering 44 square kilometres, were added on the Eleonore
Centre property which extends the property about 8 kilometres to the south. The
exploration program will mainly include prospection work along favourable
auriferous trends recently identified on the Eleonore Centre property. 
The Eleonore project, which encompasses the Eleonore Centre and West
properties, is constituted of a total of 327 claims covering 172 square
kilometres, and is located approximately 30 kilometres southwest from and in a
geological environment similar to Goldcorp Inc.'s Eleonore deposit. This
world-class gold deposit contains reserves of 4.03 Moz Au (proven and probable
categories), combined measured and indicated resources of 4.84 Moz Au and
inferred resources estimated at 4.10 Moz Au. (Source: Goldcorp press release
dated February 13, 2014).  
Prospecting conducted by Midland from 2009 to 2013 on the Eleonore Centre
property identified the presence of several gold showings associated with
quartz-tourmaline pyrite bearing veinlets occurring in sheared metasediments,
as well as mafic and felsic metavolcanics which returned up to 18.8 g/t Au.
These results strongly suggest that an auriferous hydrothermal system is
present on the property by a strong abundance of quartz-tourmaline veins over a
plurimetric area. In addition, the 2013 ground induced polarisation
("IP") survey identified many north-south trending IP anomalies and
several remain unexplained. The 2011 soil geochemistry survey permitted to
delineate a series of As-Cu-Sb anomalies clustered along a north-south-trending
axis. Finally, a series of parallel northeast trending AeroTEM II conductors
were outlined by the 2010 airborne geophysical survey which targeted sulfide
bearing Eleonore-type sediments on the northern part of the Eleonore Centre
property. Some of these conductors coincide with uncovered gold-bearing
disseminated to semi-massive sulfides zones identified by Midland and several
EM anomalies still remain unexplained. 
Interpretation of the high definition airborne magnetic survey covering the
Eleonore Centre property, completed at the beginning of 2014, confirms the
presence of an important north-south oriented structure associated with several
gold showings uncovered by Midland. This structure is considered highly
favourable for gold mineralization. Thus, the 80 new claims were added to the
Eleonore Centre property over the southern extension of this structure. 
The exploration programs principally targets the important north-south trending
structure, which is associated with many gold showings uncovered in the last
years by Midland. Contacts between magnetic domains, again associated with gold
mineralization, identified by Midland will also be prospected during this
campaign over unexplored portions of the property.
