Title:     Messina Minerals (MMI-TSXV) Intersects 10.1% Zinc, 2.3% Lead, 0.5% Copper over 3.6 m at Tulks East

Messina Minerals Inc. (MMI-TSXV) has released results from four additional holes testing the Tulks East zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold prospect located 20 kilometers by road northeast of the Boomerang/Domino zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold mineral resources within the Tulks South Property, and 7 kilometers from the Main Zone prospect (see NR October 30, 2007) in central Newfoundland, Canada. The Tulks East prospect is comprised of two parallel zinc-mineralized massive sulphide zones; the at-surface B Zone and the larger and slightly deeper A Zone.

Summary
All four new holes intersected B Zone zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold mineralization between 9050E and 9125E for a total strike length between 8925E to 9125E of 200 meters (see NR October 19, 2007).

Three of four holes also intersected adjacent A Zone mineralization between 9050E and 9125E over 75 meters strike length.

There are no NI43-101 compliant resources calculated at the Tulks East prospect. This program of additional Diamond drilling is intended to permit an estimate of zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold mineral resources.

B Zone drilling confirms the continuity of zinc, lead, copper, silver and gold mineralization to section 9125E beginning at 8925E; over 200 meters strike length.

A Zone massive sulphide intersections begin at section 8925E and show increasing thickness and increasing zinc assays (zonation) to section 9125E reported below. The A Zone is historically known to be situated parallel to the B Zone within approximately 20 meters.

Results
The results continue to confirm the continuity and grade of B Zone zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold mineralization from 8925E to 9125E over a strike length of 200 meters and from surface to a vertical depth of 185 meters.

Four new holes, TE07-109 to TE07-112, tested the B Zone from 9050E to 9125E. Assay results for all holes are tabulated below. Al four holes intersected B Zone zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold mineralization. TE07-110 helps define the top.

Three of the four new holes also intersected the western portion of the A Zone where zinc assays over increased thicknesses begins. Assay results for the A Zone intersections are tabulated below. TE07-111 defines the lower extent of the A Zone on section 9125E.

TE07-111  9125E  120 203.5 205.3 1.8 No Significant Result     

Drilling continues to test for B Zone and A Zone mineralization east of 9125E. The drill program is designed to demonstrate continuity of zinc-enriched mineralization, and to also upgrade the quality of specific gravity and other technical parameters versus historic information, to permit an estimate of the mineral resources.

Messina Minerals Inc. is exploring for zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold massive sulphide deposits in 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 additive to the Company's zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold resource base.
