Metalline Mining Company April 15, 2010 Meeting of Shareholders

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - Metalline Mining Company (NYSE Amex: MMG) is pleased to announce that on March 9, 2010 its joint proxy statement/prospectus on Form S-4 was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The proposals described in the definitive joint proxy statement/prospectus, which include a proposal to effect the merger transaction with Dome Ventures Corporation, will be presented to Metalline's shareholders at a special meeting to be held on April 15, 2010. Starting on March 12, 2010, Metalline began distributing materials regarding that meeting to its shareholders. Materials regarding the meeting are also available on the Securities and Exchange Commission's website. Additionally, information regarding Metalline and Dome, including a Technical Report prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 regarding Metalline's Sierra Mojada Project, is available on under the reports and documents filed by Dome.

Metalline will hold the shareholders meeting to present several proposals to its shareholders, including the approval of the issuance of its shares of common stock to effect the merger transaction with Dome Ventures Corporation. Metalline's meeting of shareholders will be held on April 15, 2010 at 6400 South Fiddlers Green Circle, Suite 1000, Greenwood Village, CO 80111 at 10:00 a.m. Mountain Time. On January 11, 2010 Metalline filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended October 31, 2009. That Annual Report is a part of the materials being distributed to shareholders for Metalline's April 15, 2010 meeting of shareholders. The audit report filed with Metalline's 2009 Form 10-K includes a qualification as to the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. As described in Metalline's Form 10-K, if the merger transaction with Dome is completed Metalline management believes that the $13,010,000 currently held in escrow by Dome will address the going concern qualification and be sufficient to satisfy Metalline's working capital needs into Metalline's 2011 fiscal year and through completion of a preliminary economic analysis at Metalline's Sierra Mojada Project.
