Lakeland Resources Inc. Expands the Midas Gold Property with Acquisition of New Claims

VANCOUVER, April 20 /CNW/ - Lakeland Resources Inc. (TSXV: LK) (the "Company" or "Lakeland") is pleased to announce that it has expanded the Midas Gold Property through the staking of 64 additional claim units. The newly-staked ground is contiguous to the existing property and has more than doubled the size of the land package increasing it by approximately 1,000 hectares. The Midas Property now consists of 10 unpatented mining claims encompassing 107 claim units (1,712 hectares).

Lakeland recently completed a five hole winter drill program at the Midas Property for a total of approximately 850 metres. The program was designed to test targets that were identified following the completion of an Induced Polarization ground geophysical survey. All five holes have been logged, sampled, split and sent in for assay with results expected in the next two weeks.

"The Midas Property holds great promise for a new discovery in an area of the Wawa Camp that has seen relatively little in the way of diamond drilling," stated Jonathan Armes, President of Lakeland. "The addition of the new ground protects our current land holdings and bolsters our position within the camp."

The Midas Gold Property is road accessible and is located within the Michipicoten Greenstone Belt in north-central Ontario. The project lies approximately 50 kilometres northeast of the town of Wawa and approximately 20 kilometres southeast of Richmont Mines' (TSX: RIC) Island Gold Mine and Mill and Prodigy Gold's (TSXv: PDG) Magino Gold Project.

The newly-acquired ground hosts at least five historic gold showings according to geological reports on file with the Ontario Geological Society MDI database. The ground will be included within and under the terms of the original option agreement for the Midas Property.

Lakeland also announces that the stock option grant announced in the Company's news release of March 7, 2011 has been canceled. Subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange, the Company will be granting a total of 250,000 incentive stock options to newly-appointed directors Bob Duess and Daniel Wilson. Each stock option will be exercisable into one common share of the Company at a price of $0.15 per share for a period of five years.
