Messina Minerals Boomerang Area Exploration
| ||Messina Minerals Inc. (MMI-TSXV) has contracted Quantec Geoscience Ltd. to perform geophysical surveying during 2007 using the 'Titan 24 Deep Earth Imaging' system in the Boomerang area within the Tulks South Property located in central Newfoundland.|
Messina's geological work to date indicates potential for additional discoveries of zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold massive sulphide mineralization in the vicinity of the indicated/inferred mineral resources at "Boomerang" and "Domino" (NR June 21, 2007). The Titan 24 geophysical survey is designed to identify targets adjacent to Boomerang and Domino, as well as within the "Zinc Zone" and "Baxter Pond Offset" prospects in the immediate area.
The Titan 24 Deep Earth Imaging system is considered to be the most advanced electrical earth imaging technology available. Measuring parameters of DC (resistivity), IP (chargeability) and MT (magnetotelluric resistivity), the Titan 24 measures to depths of 750 meters with IP and to depths of more than 1.5 kilometers with MT data. These depths and multi-parameter data make the system one of the best options available for obtaining subsurface information related to geologic structure and for the direct detection of mineral deposits.
Messina Minerals Inc. is exploring for zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold massive sulphide deposits 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 is currently drill testing the Tulks East and Main Zone prospects located 20 kilometers northeast of Boomerang. 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.
Kerry Sparkes, Vice President Exploration of Messina Minerals Inc. is the Qualified Person responsible for exploration on the Company's properties in central Newfoundland and who has reviewed and is responsible for the technical data contained in this news release.
