Title:     Messina Minerals (MMI-TSXV) Domino, Hurricane, and TouchDown Drilling Results

Messina Minerals Inc. has completed a total of 9 holes in the immediate vicinity of the Hurricane and Domino mineralized areas, as well as at the TouchDown target area within the Tulks South Property located in central Newfoundland, Canada. The program is testing for new zones or extensions of known zones of zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold massive sulphide mineralization.

DOMINO DRILLING RESULTS
Messina has completed 2 additional holes testing the Domino zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold target not included in the Domino inferred resource estimated by Snowden (NR June 21, 2007).

GA07-253 was wedged from GA06-115 and intersected Domino updip of and west of the pierce point of GA06-119 (see NR August 10, 2006). GA07-253 intersected a 2.02 meter interval (from 632.74 to 634.76m) assaying 16.6% zinc, 10.1% lead, 1.0% copper, 280 g/t silver, and 1.4 g/t gold within a broader 10.96 meter zone (from 623.80 to 634.76m) which assayed 4.5% zinc, 2.9% lead, 0.4% copper, 138 g/t silver, and 0.5 g/t gold. This hole provides confidence in the high base metal grades within Domino and that this mineralization does extend to the east beyond 3900E and beyond the area of the Domino inferred mineral resource.

GA07-261 was drilled from surface; the hole steepened significantly and intersected the Domino horizon well below the Domino mineralized target. No significant assays were reported. This hole does not impact the model for strike length/width/location of Domino mineralization.

HURRICANE AREA DRILLING RESULTS
Messina has completed 6 additional holes testing the general area around the Hurricane target to the east of the Boomerang indicated/inferred mineral resource and at shallower depths than Domino inferred mineral resource.

The best drill result from the 6 additional holes is from GA07-255 which intersected 3.44 meters of high-grade Hurricane mineralization which assays 20.5% zinc, 2.6% lead, 0.3% copper, 94 g/t silver, and 1.5 g/t gold over the interval. Anomalous results from all 6 holes are tabulated below.



TOUCHDOWN DRILLING RESULTS

Messina has completed a 3 hole anomaly drilling program at the TouchDown target located 2 kilometers northeast of the Boomerang/Domino zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold resource and within the Company's Tulks South Property. This program tested for strike extensions of the TouchDown 33.2 meter massive and semi-massive pyrite interval identified in hole TD07-01 (see NR May 8, 2007).

All three new holes intersected TouchDown mineralization. TD07-02 intersected 9.8 meters of massive and semi-massive pyrite and chert 50 meters down dip of TD07-01 on line 6600E. TD07-03 intersected 43.4 meters of massive sulphide and chert from a position 200 meters west along strike of TD07-01 on line 6400E. TD07-04 intersected 19.5 meters of massive and semi-massive pyrite and chert from a position 400 meters west along strike of TD07-01 on 6200E. Sulphide intervals in all three new holes are anomalous in base and precious metals equivalent to that encountered in TD07-01. The anomaly and sulphide zone remains open in all directions. Of particular interest is the untested southwest strike extent as it trends back towards the Boomerang/Domino/Hurricane zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold massive sulphide zones located over 2 kilometers away and untested within that distance.

Specific gravity testing, rock quality determinations and photographic logging of all massive sulphide intersections are performed systematically by Messina staff prior to assaying. Assays are performed by Eastern Analytical Limited of Springdale, Newfoundland. Check assays and other lithogeochemical analyses are performed by Chemex Labs of North Vancouver, British Columbia. The Company is and will continue to use methodical and geoscientifically accepted procedures for assaying including quality control and quality assurance (QA/QC) including the use of duplicates, standards, and blanks for all analytical testing.

Messina Minerals Inc. is exploring for zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold massive sulphide deposits in central Newfoundland, Canada on its extensive 383 square kilometer mineral lands, in a region known historically for its zinc resources and where the Company has outlined indicated/inferred mineral resources at "Boomerang" and "Domino". Messina's strategy is to test its properties for zinc-copper mineralization that is conceptually within truck-hauling distance of Boomerang/Domino indicated/inferred mineral resources and which could, subject to positive exploration and other test results, be additive to the Company's zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold resource base.

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 who has reviewed and is responsible for the technical data contained in this news release.
