Mesa Royalty Trust Announces Approval of Continued Trading on NYSE

On September 22, 2008, The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., the Trustee of Mesa Royalty Trust (the Trust) (NYSE: MTR), submitted to the New York Stock Exchange, Inc. (the NYSE) a request for an additional six-month trading period in light of the Trusts failure to file its annual report on Form 10-K for the period ending December 31, 2007 (the 2007 Form 10-K). As previously disclosed, the Trust failed to file its 2007 Form 10-K timely pursuant to Section 203.01 (Reporting Financial Information to Shareholders) of the NYSEs Listed Company Manual and, as a result, is subject to the procedures under Section 802.01E (SEC Annual Report Timely Filing Criteria) of the NYSEs Listed Company Manual.

On October 16, 2008, the NYSE informed the Trustee that the request for the additional trading period was approved giving the Trust until December 1, 2008 to complete and file the 2007 Form 10-K, subject to reassessment on an ongoing basis and compliance with the milestones and timing outlined in the request for the additional six-month trading period.

The Trusts units remain listed on the NYSE under the symbol MTR, but have been assigned a ".LF" indicator by the NYSE to signify that the Trust is on the "late filer" list. The Trust will remain on the late filer list until such time as the Trust is current with all of its periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although the Trust intends to cure the deficiencies and to return to compliance with the NYSE continued listing requirements, there can be no assurance that it will be able to do so.

The Trust is awaiting the completion of reserve information by the Trusts independent reserve engineer, and the Trustee intends to complete the audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2007 and to file the 2007 Form 10-K as soon as possible after receipt of this information.
