Midland and Wallbridge planning drill program west of Fenelon

Jul 14, 2021

Midland Exploration Inc. is reporting that an important drilling program is currently in preparation to test new high-priority drilling targets identified on the Casault project. This project, wholly owned by Midland and under option since June 2020 by Wallbridge, is located along the Sunday Lake Fault, stretching from approximately 10 to 45 kilometres west of the Fenelon Gold Property held by Wallbridge, where an active drill program in support of a maiden resource estimate is currently underway.

On June 30, 2021, Midland received from Wallbridge the $110,000 cash payment due on the first anniversary of the option agreement. The technical committee is planning to meet in mid-July to finalize the prioritization of targets to be tested during a drilling program totalling approximately 5,000 metres, scheduled to begin in August 2021. These targets will namely include geophysical anomalies strategically positioned near favourable structures based on recent interpretations, as well as new geological targets based on the results of field reconnaissance work currently underway in the north part of the property. These targets occur in a similar geologic setting as Wallbridge’s Martiniere deposits, located less than 5 kilometres to the east, which have a historic indicated resource of 7,919,598 tonnes at 2.32 g/t Au for 590,642 oz and historic inferred resource of 363,420 t @ 4.57 g/t Au for 53,344 oz.

The Casault property is wholly owned by Midland and consists of 322 claims (177 square kilometres) covering the Sunday Lake Fault over more than 20 kilometres strike length. The property is also located approximately 40 kilometres east of the Detour Lake mine.
