Midlands Minerals Continues to Generate Encouraging Results on Sian-Ghana

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 24, 2008) - Midlands Minerals Corporation ("Midlands" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MEX) is pleased to announce a research update by Objective Capital Limited (UK) ("Objective") on the Company and its priority project, the Sian gold Project in Ghana.

Key Points:

- Midlands remains focused on drilling at Sian

- Sian's gold resource has nearly doubled since last year

- Gold remains near a record high

- Exploration activities continue at Sian and elsewhere

Sian, a fully permitted recent open pit gold producer with a 30 year mining lease is located on the prolific Ashanti Gold Belt, just 30 kilometres northeast of Newmont Mining's 8.7 million oz Akyem gold deposit. A Carbon in Leach (CIL) plant, power, roads buildings and water are in place. The Sian gold mineralization is a silica-carbonate alteration with disseminated pyrite, similar to that found at Newmont's Akyem gold deposit. The Company is currently drilling on Sian, and expects to begin receiving initial new drill results by the end of May, 2008.

Midlands' objective is to mitigate risk for the investor by holding a portfolio of high quality gold projects in two stable countries and to bring real value to shareholders through exploration and development of the Company's mineral properties in Ghana and Tanzania. Our Business Model is to operate in low risk investor friendly and politically stable countries with a long gold mining history, and to acquire gold and diamond properties next to known major deposits.
