Midlands “MEX” Minerals Resumes Drilling at Sian-Praso Project, Ghana

Midlands “TSX.V-MEX” “OTC.QX-MDLXF” Minerals announced on June 13, 2011 that drilling will resume on their Sian-Praso project which is their fully permitted, 600,000 ounce flagship gold project in Ghana.  It has two past-producing open-pit mines, a renewable 30-year mining lease, an existing CIL plant and all the right infrastructure.  Midlands Minerals’ President & CEO, Kim Harris, states, “All of the villages were relocated by the previous owners, which takes away a huge risk from us and makes the project very, very attractive.  Taking it back to production will really be at a grossly discounted price because of all that is in place: the power is there, water, sewage treatment plans, skilled people that were working for the previous owner, buildings.  Sian is a fantastic project, a lot of potential with 600,000 ounces and counting.  We believe it is a multi-million-ounce deposit.”

A phased sequential and combination of a diamond drill and RC program of 50,000 m will shortly be initiated.  An initial 20 holes of diamond core drilling with a planned hole depth of 150 m are planned on drill targets at the Sian property.
