Midlands Minerals Announces Withdrawal from Parlozi Option Agreement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 23, 2015) - Midlands Minerals Corporation ("Midlands" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MEX) would like to update shareholders that it has given notice to terminate the unexercised portion of the Parlozi option agreement in Serbia with Reservoir Minerals Inc. ("Reservoir") (TSX VENTURE:RMC), effective May 6, 2015.

Craig Pearman, President and CEO stated: "This decision is strategic and does not reflect on the exploration calibre of the Parlozi project. The decision has hinged on the level of exploration success on the project after one year, and the anticipated cost to Company to advance the current exploration targets in the context of the treasury, the current market, and the associated Company risk. During the winter, a ground magnetic survey and structural mapping exercise were conducted over the southern prospects as a low-cost approach to providing needed geological context around our Phase 1 drill results with the aim of improving our Phase 2 drill success. This work greatly improved the geological model, modified the project exploration plan going forwards, and provided Midlands with a technical perspective that has led to the decision to terminate the option."

On April 24, 2014 Midlands announced the signing of the option agreement with Reservoir to earn up to a 75% interest in Reservoir's Parlozi zinc-lead-silver project in Serbia.
