News Releases - Tuesday, June 12, 2007
Messina Minerals ("MMI") Infill Intersects Boomerang: 4.25 meters
of 9.1% Zinc, 8.2% Lead, 0.8% Copper, 265 g/t Silver, 6.1 g/t
Gold
======================================================================

Messina Minerals Inc. has completed eight new infill holes at the
Boomerang zinc-lead-copper-gold-silver massive sulphide deposit that
continue to indicate excellent continuity of thickness and base metal
enrichment. This phase of drilling at Boomerang is complete. Assays and
geotechnical data has been submitted to Snowden Mining Industry
Consultants Inc. ("Snowden") for inclusion in a mineral resource
estimate anticipated to be available later in June 2007.

Results from the eight holes meet or exceed expectations for the
sub-areas targeted within Boomerang. GA07-239 and GA07-245 intersected
extended intervals of base metal enriched massive sulphides with
subzones of high precious metals (6.1 g/t gold, 265 g/t silver over
4.25 meters, and 6.3 g/t gold with 201 g/t silver over 6.0 meters
respectively) indicating continuity of precious metal enrichment of
this subzone of Boomerang.

One hole of note, GA07-248, intersected 18.33 meters of base metal
enriched massive sulphides on section 2975E. This hole extends the
thicker portion of Boomerang west 25 meters and connects with two holes
on section 2950E, GA05-90 and GA05-94, which reported thinner zones
(6.35 meters and 5.72 meters respectively) of lower grade
mineralization (NR December 20, 2005).

Assay results for the eight Boomerang holes are tabulated below.

Drilling has resumed at Domino with one drill testing for along-strike
continuation of this mineralization. One drill has been mobilized to
the Skidder Property and will begin testing the Skidder massive
sulphide prospect this week. One drill is scheduled to mobilize to
begin testing the TouchDown target shortly (See NR May 31, 2007).

Messina is drilling zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold enriched massive
sulphides at and 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 327 square kilometer area of Messina's central Newfoundland mineral
land holdings. 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.

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 and standards for all analytical testing. Drill holes
are assigned a number if they are started and reach bedrock; hole
numbers not referenced are those terminated before reaching target due
to bad ground or excessive deviation.

The Company also announces that, subject to regulatory approval, it has
granted 75,000 2

incentive stock options to certain employees, officers, directors
and/or consultants at a price of $1.59 per share, exercisable for a
period of two years.

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.
