PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Aug 17, 2015) - Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTC PINK: TMBXF), a fully reporting company (BERLIN: UDNA), announced today that the Company has completed the filing of all of its Bureau of Land Management (BLM) mining claims for the Eagletail Mining District, which is located in the State of Arizona. Tombstone has also paid all initial location and maintenance fees for both the county and the BLM for the 2015 and 2016 years.
The four BLM Lode Claims encompass eighty acres and cover the center of a land position, which includes the Stardust Mine. The Stardust Property, which is located approximately seventy-five miles west of Phoenix, has a zone of chloritic schist, granite and andesite dikes that have values up to 3.05 ppm gold (0.089 ounces per ton) according to a detailed report and sampling program performed on the property. Silicification, limonite, hematite, copper oxide and chloritic alteration are associated with the gold mineralization.
The report states that one of several zones of altered andesite that outcrops from the surrounding sedimentary cover is at least 400 feet wide and 100 feet long. The overall zone of alteration and fracturing is at least 1/2 mile in length and 300 to 500 feet wide, but is partially overlain by sediment. Sixty-three samples assayed over 0.01 ounces per ton; and based on available data, the report concluded that there is a good probability that an ore body of +/-3 million tons of 0.06 ounces per ton is present on the property.
"We are pleased to have obtained such a remarkable property with extremely valuable gold targets identified in the Eagletail Mining District," commented Alan Brown, President of Tombstone Exploration Corporation. "We are continuing to add key executives to our Board with long-term backgrounds in the resource industry and strong connections within the financial industry. I am confident that this will allow us to continue to implement our exploration initiatives and broaden our resource base in the commodity areas."
