Messina Minerals Tulks South NI43-101 Technical Report

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 25, 2006) - Messina Minerals Inc. ("MMI") (TSX VENTURE:MMI) has received an independent technical report by Charles Dearin, P.Geo. of FORTIS GeoServices Ltd. of St. John's, Newfoundland prepared in accordance with the requirements of National Instrument 43-101 describing the Company's Tulks South Property located in central Newfoundland, Canada.

This comprehensive report documents all exploration results on the Tulks South Property up to June 15, 2006 and provides a summary of all geological data as well as independently reviewing Messina's drilling and surveying procedures, drill core logging, sampling and recording procedures, analytical procedures, and quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) procedures.

The report states:

"Messina's Tulks South Property contains at least three significant VMS deposits which have been partially delineated with generally close spaced (approximately 50 to 75 m) drill sections. These three VMS deposits, the Boomerang, Domino and Tulks East B-Zone, demonstrate good continuity of mineralization in three dimensions at economically interesting grades over significant strike and dip lengths. Outside of these three deposits the remainder of the Property has excellent geological potential for additional discoveries of VMS base metal deposits and mesothermal-style gold deposits."
