NEWFOUNDLAND - Vancouver-based MESSINA MINERALS is drilling its Tulks South property in the central part of the island as it prepares a resource estimate. Best results from the Domino massive sulphide zone included 0.04% Cu, 3.00% Pb, 6.60% Zn, 82.00 g/t Ag and 0.70 g/t Au over 23.65 m. This is the best intersection yet reported from the property. Another hole assayed 0.40% Cu, 3.70% Pb, 7.10% Zn, 104.00 g/t Ag and 0.60 g/t Au over 5.15 m. The third hole reported by Messina intersected 3.43 m of 0.30% Cu, 0.30% Pb, 2.00% Zn, 10.00 g/t Ag and no significant gold.
The company says the Domino zone dips steeply at approximately 85, as does the adjacent Boomerang massive sulphide deposit. Domino lies at approximately 500 m below surface and is now interpreted to lie as close as 75 m beneath the bottom of the Boomerang deposit on section 3200E. The true thickness of reported Domino intervals is undetermined and the zone remains open along strike on either end.
