Messina Minerals Inc. Grab Sample Results from Daniels Harbour NL

Vancouver, BC, October 20, 2009 - Messina Minerals Inc. (TSX-V:MMI) has
received assay results from surface grab sampling on the Daniels
Harbour Property located in western Newfoundland, Canada.  Messina
acquired the property by staking and owns a 100% interest.  The
property covers the site of the former Daniels Harbour zinc mine, owned
by Teck Corporation, which produced approximately 7 million tonnes of
ore grading 8% zinc with by-product cadmium credits from 1975 to 1990.
The mineralization at Daniels Harbour is described as
"Mississippi-Valley Type" hosted by Ordovician age carbonate rocks.
 
The objective of the initial reconnaissance program was to map surface
exposures and road and power infrastructure at the Daniels Harbour
Property and integrate this information with Messina's developing
geological compilation.  A second objective was to locate and assay
representative sphalerite (zinc-enriched) mineralization left-over from
the mining operation. Messina also collected and donated approximately
400 pounds of sphalerite mineralization on behalf of the Newfoundland
Branch -- Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum
("CIM") for inclusion in mineral identification kits.

A total of 15 rock grab samples of sphalerite (zinc) mineralization
were collected from six separate mined areas within the Daniels Harbour
property where the mineralization had been intentionally left in place
as representative of ore types.   Five of Messina's samples assayed
between 54% zinc to 64% zinc, eight samples assayed between 30.6% zinc
and 46.4% zinc, and two samples of lower grade mineralization contained
14% zinc to 15% zinc.  Duplicate check assaying confirmed these
results.  All 15 grab samples also contained greater than 110 ppm
cadmium.

The Daniels Harbour property is transected by numerous paved and gravel
roads which supported the former mine and remain in good condition.
Two powerlines also transect the property.  The property is 5 km from a
provincial highway and 10 km from the coastal community of Daniels
Harbour.

On-going Work:
Compilation of historical drilling and assay intersections adjacent to
the former mine workings is continuing.  The overall objective is to
identify prospective areas for similar zinc mineralization adjacent to
the former Daniels Harbour mine workings.  Recommendations for further
work in 2010 will be based upon the results of data compilation to be
completed by December 2009.

Sample Protocols
All samples were photographed and tested using a magnetic
susceptibility meter.  Samples were submitted to Eastern Analytical of
Springdale, NF for analysis.  All samples were assayed for gold by fire
assay -- atomic absorption finish.  All samples were also analyzed for
34 elements by ICP (inductively coupled plasma).  'Over-limit' zinc and
silver results using the ICP method were analyzed by assay techniques
standard to that element.  Over-limit (>110 ppm) cadmium results were
not quantitatively determined.  Pulps and coarse rejects from these
samples have been retained.  Messina uses protocols standard to the
industry and professional QA/QC procedures for assaying including the
use of laboratory standards, blanks, and duplicates, the retention of
pulps and coarse rejects, and the maintenance of chain-of-custody among
other procedures.
