NEWFOUNDLAND – Vancouver-based MESSINA MINERALS has intersected 10.65 metres of massive sulphides grading 11.6% Zn, 6.2% Pb, 0.6% Cu plus 2.4 g/t Au and 173 g/t Ag. The core came from a new 50-metres step-out hole from the last reported Boomerang mineralization. A notable 3.15-metre subinterval contained 22.6% Zn, 8.5% Pb and 0.6% Cu with 2.1 g/t Au and 228 g/t Ag.
The Boomerang massive sulphide deposit is located in central Newfoundland. It is an extensive zone of altered and base metal mineralized felsic volcanics now known to have a strike length of 350 metres. Messina first drilled it in December 2004.
Messina’s land holdings total 272 km including the Tulks South and Long Lake properties. The company is earning a 100% interest from Falconbridge, which retains a 50% back-in option. Maps and photos of the project are posted at www.MessinaMinerals.com.
