Midland Exploration Initiates a First Exploration Program With Breakwater on the Weedon Project

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 14, 2007) - Midland Exploration Inc. ("Midland") (TSX VENTURE:MD) is pleased to announce that it has started the initial exploration program on its wholly-owned Weedon Project located in the Eastern Townships, about 120 kilometres south of Quebec City.

The initial exploration program will include an important detailed magnetic and electromagnetic (VTEM) helicopter-borne airborne geophysical survey in late November 2007. This airborne survey is designed to detect new conductive zones of base metal mineralization on the property. This system reportedly provides exceptional depth penetration of up to 300 metres, as well as a more precise target definition than conventional systems. The VTEM survey, expected to cover the entire property with over 1600 kilometres of flight lines, will be flown on 200m line spacing with 100m in-fill line spacing where justified. Preliminary results of the VTEM survey are expected by the end of 2007. Midland and Breakwater Resources Ltd., Midland's joint venture partner, will review the results and select the first priority anomalies for follow-up with drilling in early 2008.

This fall, the exploration program will also include trenching on the new surface showing area discovered in 2006. This new un-drilled semi-massive sulphide lens was stripped and sampled yielding exceptional grades of up to 2.23% Cu, 23.7% Zn, 5.95% Pb, 263 g/t Ag, and 9.22 g/t Au from selected grab samples. New trenching will be conducted on the lateral extensions of the sulphide lens and over some untested multi-element soil geochemical anomalies.

The Weedon property consists of 242 claims totalling 132 km2 and covers more than 30 kilometres of the Ascot-Weedon volcano-sedimentary belt. The Ascot-Weedon belt hosts several mined out volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits and exhibits many similarities with other prolific VMS mining camps, namely Bathurst in New Brunswick and Buchans in Newfoundland.

Historically, exploration on the Weedon property largely dates back to the 1970s. Midland believes that the area has great potential for economic VMS deposits. The favourable geological setting spans more than 30 kilometres and has only been tested at shallow depths over most of this extent.

Breakwater may acquire 50% of Midland's interest by funding $3,000,000 in exploration expenditures and by making payments totalling $200,000 over three years. Midland will be the operator until a positive pre-feasibility study is completed. Upon acquiring a 50% interest, Breakwater may acquire an additional 15% interest by delivering a bankable feasibility study and by paying Midland $40,000 per year. Additionally, Breakwater needs to spend a minimum of $200,000 per year in exploration work on the property until the feasibility study is delivered.

About Midland

Midland's strategy to discover new gold and base metal deposits is based on Quebec's excellent mineral potential and favourable investment climate. Midland further intends to be pro-active in 2007 in the acquisition of new mineral exploration properties in Quebec. The Company recently signed important agreements with Agnico-Eagle for its James Bay Gold project and with Breakwater for the Gatineau project. Management is currently considering other opportunities and other projects in order to expand the Company's portfolio. Midland prefers to work in partnership and intends to quickly secure new agreements to this effect for its properties acquired in 2007.
