Midland Announces Acquisition of McDuff Project, Quebec

Midland Exploration Inc. takes pleasure in announcing its recent acquisition of the McDuff project by map staking to include an area considered highly propitious for copper-gold-molybdenum mineralization in Quebec’s James Bay/Eeyou Istchee region.

The western end of the project is located nearly 2 km from the historical McLeod Cu-Au-Mo prospect, and nearly 45 km west of road 167. (According to a caution provided by Midland, mineralization on the McLeod historical prospect may not be suggestive of the mineralization that may be detected on the McDuff project). The project consists of 159 claims that cover an area of 84 km2.

Following are the favorable features of the McDuff project:

It covers over 20 km of the favorable contact between the La Guiche paragneiss complex and the McLeod granodiorite, that hosts the historical McLeod Cu-Au-Mo prospect. Recently, in 2018, this contact was mapped by the MERN (Quebec government).

During regional mapping in 2018, MERN geologists detected earlier unknown copper mineralization on the project. A 2018 MERN grab sample situated close to the favorable contact yielded 13.1 g/t Ag and 0.31% Cu. It should be noted that, by nature, grab samples are selective and reported values are not representative of mineralized zones.

In the western part of the project, an unexplained and strong copper-molybdenum lake sediment anomaly occurs close to the favorable contact.

Later in the year, Midland will perform a prospection and mapping campaign on McDuff.
