Mesa Exploration Commences Potash Exploration

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 27, 2011) - Mesa Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MSA)(PINK SHEETS:MSAJF) ("Mesa") is pleased to announce that the company has commenced an exploration program on the Blawn Mountain and White Mountain potash projects in western Utah.

The exploration program will involve a detailed, systematic ground geophysical survey, geological mapping and reconnaissance, with rock sampling at elevated radiometric readings and mineralization. The projects will be radiometrically surveyed as potash (potassium) emits a distinct signature sufficient for easy detection. Areas found to be of higher potential interest will be systematically surveyed and sampled at a more detailed scale. The primary goal of this exploration program is to define areas of highest priority interest and to identify targets for future detailed follow-up and potential drilling.
