Messina Minerals Inc.: Aldrin Terminates Option on Reid Lot 229 Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 27, 2007) - Messina Minerals Inc. ("Messina") (TSX VENTURE:MMI) has received notice from Aldrin Resource Corp. ("Aldrin") informing it of Aldrin's decision to allow its option to acquire an interest in Messina's Long Lake Reid Lot 229 Property (the "Property") to lapse. Aldrin does not retain any interest in the Property.

Aldrin had originally been granted an option to acquire an interest in the Property pursuant to an Option and Joint Venture Agreement dated January 6, 2006, as amended; and has spent $500,000 towards work on the Property over the past 19 months.


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 made new massive sulphide discoveries including "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.

On behalf of the Board of Messina Minerals Inc.

Peter Tallman, President
