Midland Exploration and Breakwater Resources Sign an Important Agreement for the Weedon Cu-Zn-Pb-Au-Ag Property in Quebec

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 11, 2007) - Midland Exploration Inc. ("Midland") (TSX VENTURE:MD) is pleased to announce the signing of a letter of agreement with Breakwater Resources Ltd. ("Breakwater") for the Weedon property, which is currently held 100% by Midland. The property is located in the Eastern Townships, about 120 kilometres south of Quebec City.

Breakwater can acquire 50% of Midland's interest during a three-year period under the following conditions:

- Cash payment of $40,000 upon signing the agreement with additional payments of $160,000 for a total of $200,000 over three years.

- Exploration expenditures of $500,000 in the first year (firm commitment) with additional expenditures of $2,500,000 for a total of $3,000,000 over three years.

Midland will be the operator until the completion of a positive pre-feasibility study. Upon acquiring a 50% interest, Breakwater will have the option to acquire an additional 15% interest by delivering a bankable feasibility study under the following conditions:

- Cash payment of $40,000 per year and a minimum of $200,000 of exploration work each year until the delivery of a bankable feasibility study within a four-year period.

The property consists of 242 claims totalling 132 km2 and covers more than 30 kilometres of the Ascot-Weedon volcano-sedimentary belt. This Ascot-Weedon belt hosts several mined out volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits and shows many similarities with other prolific VMS mining camps, namely Bathurst in New Brunswick and Buchans in Newfoundland. Many Cu-Zn-Pb-Au-Ag showings are also known in the belt and a new surface showing was discovered in the fall 2006. This new un-drilled semi-massive sulphide lens was stripped and sampled that yielding grades reaching 2.23% Cu, 23.7% Zn, 5.95% Pb, 263 g/t Ag, and 9.22 g/t Au. No previous work is reported directly on this showing.

Historically, exploration work on the Weedon property largely dates back to the 1970s. Midland believes the area has great potential for the discovery of economic VMS deposits given its favourable geological setting spanning over more than 30 kilometres and tested at very shallow depths over most of this extent. Moreover, the Weedon property provides an excellent opportunity to apply new exploration techniques specific to VMS deposits in an area with proven potential.
