News Releases - Wednesday, June 13, 2007
Messina Minerals ("MMI") Agrees to Acquire Victoria River
Property from Altius Resources Inc.
======================================================================

Messina Minerals Inc. has agreed to acquire the Victoria River
zinc-copper massive sulphide property located in central Newfoundland,
Canada from Altius Resources Inc. ("Altius") of St. John's,
Newfoundland. Altius' Victoria River Property is comprised of two
licences encompassing 59 claims totaling 1,475 hectares in area and is
adjacent to Messina's wholly owned Victoria Mine Property comprised of
900 hectares acquired by staking.

The Victoria River Property is located 35 km northeast of Messina's
Tulks South Property in central Newfoundland which hosts the Boomerang
zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold deposit currently the subject of an
NI43-101 compliant resource estimation by Snowden Mining Industry
Consultants Inc. The Victoria River Property is located 1 kilometer
east of the Bobby's Pond zinc-copper massive sulphide deposit with a
NI43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate hosting an indicated
resource of 840,000 tonnes grading 6.30% Zn, 0.93% Cu, 0.53 Pb%, 20 g/t
Ag and minor 0.25 g/t Au; and an inferred resource of 480,000 tonnes of
6.36% Zn, 1.07% Cu, 0.38 Pb%, 15 g/t Ag and 0.18 g/t Au (Scott Wilson
RPA, January 2007 for Mountain Lake Resources Inc.). The Victoria
River
Property is also located 18 kilometers southeast of and has
similar geologic characteristics to the world class Buchans deposits
where ASARCO and Abitibi Price mined a total of 16.2 million tonnes
grading 14.5% zinc, 7.6% lead, 1.3% copper, 126 g/t silver and 1.4 g/t
gold.

The Victoria River Property hosts a mineralized debris flow unit which
contains base metal enriched massive sulphide clasts which assay 20.1%
zinc, 12.1% lead, 0.6% copper, 67 g/t silver and 0.3 g/t gold. Debris
flow units of this type are a favourable indication of nearby massive
sulphide deposits including several of the Buchans orebodies. Altius
has spent a total of approximately $550,000 on the property to date.
Including Messina's wholly owned claims, the property covers a 10
kilometer strike length between Bobby's Pond and the Victoria River
debris flow outcrop. Several gravity and electromagnetic geophysical
anomalies, and soil geochemical anomalies, remain untested in the
vicinity of Bobby's Pond and in the vicinity of the mineralized debris
flow. Messina plans an initial drill test of several of these
anomalies following data compilation and ground prospecting and
mapping.

To acquire the Victoria River Property, Messina must issue 250,000
common shares to Altius. A 3% net smelter return royalty is payable to
Altius or pre-existing rights holders; 1.25% of the 3% can be purchased
by Messina at any time by paying a total of $1.25 million. The
acquisition agreement is subject to regulatory approval.

About Messina
Messina is drilling zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold enriched massive
sulphides adjacent to the Boomerang massive sulphide mineral resource,
within the Company's Tulks South Property located in central
Newfoundland, Canada. The Tulks South Property represents a portion of
the now 342 square kilometer area of Messina's central Newfoundland
mineral land holdings. The region is historically known as prospective
for zinc-rich massive sulphide 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.

Kerry Sparkes, P.Geo., 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.
