Vancouver, BC, July 14, 2011 -- Messina Minerals Inc. (TSX-V:MMI) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its recently announced non-brokered equity private placement (see News Release June 13, 2011) by the issuance of 8,800,000 units at a price of $0.10 per unit for gross proceeds to the Company of $880,000. Each unit consists of one common share and one-half non-transferable common share purchase warrant of the Company. Each whole warrant, expiring on January 11, 2013, entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.15. Proceeds received from the private placement are intended to be used to continue exploration work on the Company's properties in central Newfoundland and for general corporate purposes.
Finder's fees were paid to an arms-length party to the Company by way of the issuance of 547,500 finder's units and 547,500 finder's warrants. The finder's units and finder's warrants are the same as the private placement units.
All securities issued pursuant to this private placement are subject to a four month hold period that expires on November 12, 2011.
Peter Tallman President and CEO stated: "With completion of this financing, Messina can begin a sustained exploration program on its central Newfoundland properties targeting copper and zinc mineralization at a time of increasing demand for the metals and forecast mine production shortfalls."
