Messina Minerals ("MMI") 2007 Exploration Program
======================================================================

Messina Minerals Inc is drilling zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold enriched
massive sulphides, including the Boomerang massive sulphide deposit,
within the Company's 327 square kilometer area properties located in
central Newfoundland, Canada. The region is historically known as
prospective for zinc-rich deposits and home to the formerly producing
world-class base metal deposits at Buchans and currently home to a
producing zinc-copper mine at Duck Pond.

Drilling Boomerang for Resource Estimate
Three drills are currently testing Boomerang to ensure timely
completion of drilling (up to June 3rd) intended to increase confidence
in the mineral inventory classification by demonstrating continuity of
assay grade and thickness in certain areas.

Results from Boomerang drilling will be incorporated into a mineral
resource estimate by Snowden Mining Industry Consultants Inc.
("Snowden") expected to be finalized in June. The resource estimate
will also now include a portion of Domino, and the Tulks East B Zone.
Results of the estimate will be released as soon as possible following
review by management and the Board of Directors.

Anomaly Drilling Program
Messina is planning an extensive regional drill program in 2007
designed to discover new areas of mineralization and to upgrade areas
of 'historic resources' to current standards. The objective of the
drill program is to expand the 'benchmark' Boomerang resource estimate
by addition from other zones of mineralization within Messina's
properties.

Three drills are currently available to Messina although additional
rigs are requested and will be utilized if they become available.
Scheduling of anomaly drilling is contingent upon the availability of
at least three drill rigs.

Following the Boomerang testing phase, one drill will remain in the
Boomerang area to explore the adjacent Domino and Hurricane massive
sulphide targets. An initial objective is to test the Domino massive
sulphide along strike from known mineralization to expand the Domino
resource. A minimum of one drill is expected to remain in this area
throughout 2007 to test for Domino extensions, and test Hurricane and
other targets for additional mineralization adjacent to Boomerang.

One drill is expected to begin in mid-June testing the recent discovery
in TD07-01 of 24.35 meters of massive pyritic sulphides at the
TouchDown target (NR May 8, 2007) that is geologically comparable to
the Boomerang massive sulphide deposit and located approximately 2,500
meters along strike from Boomerang. The massive sulphides are
associated with a 900 meter long gravity anomaly coincident with a 700
meterelectromagnetic ("HLEM") anomaly. The objective is to discover
base metal-enriched massive sulphides similar to those found at
Boomerang, and if successful to begin work to establish continuity of
mineralization in three dimensions. Initially five holes are planned to
test this target with an expansion of the program contingent upon
results.

One drill is expected to begin in mid-June testing the Skidder
zinc-copper prospect (NR February 1, 2007). The objective at Skidder is
to discover zones of zinc-copper massive sulphide mineralization and to
begin work to establish continuity of mineralization in three
dimensions. Initially five holes are planned to test this target with
an expansion of the program contingent upon results.

Additional anomaly drilling targets during the summer 2007 program
include tests of:


Airborne Surveying: Skidder, Costigan Properties
Aeroquest International have been contracted to complete airborne
electromagnetic and magnetic surveying using the Aerotem II system to
cover Messina's Skidder and Costigan Lake Properties adjacent to
Messina's Tulks South Property. Targets generated from the airborne
surveys will be used to guide and expand drilling programs planned for
these areas.

Linecutting: Skidder Property
SCI Exploration Ltd has completed a 40km linecut grid to cover a
portion of Messina's Skidder property. The grid will be used for
detailed mapping, for follow-up ground geophysical surveying of
airborne geophysical targets, and for diamond drilling control.

Kerry Sparkes, Vice President Exploration of Messina Minerals Inc. is
the Qualified Person responsible for exploration on the Company's
properties in central Newfoundland and the person responsible for the
technical data contained within this news release.
