About Messina

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.
