Phoenix, AZ – August 3, 2017 - Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTCPK: TMBXF), a fully reporting company announced today that the third and fourth holes Core(HQ) of drilling have been completed. The third hole (SDD3) was completed at a depth of 175 ft and the fourth hole (SDD4) was completed at 293 ft at the 100% owned Stardust claim block located in Yuma County, Arizona. Phase 2 drilling is scheduled for September. The Stardust drilling campaign is targeting an epithermal precious metals (gold, silver) system.
Harris Exploration Drilling and Associates Inc. (Harris Drilling), a Nevada company, finished drilling on July 26th. The core samples from the third and fourth holes were delivered to Skyline Assayers and Laboratories in Tucson, Arizona, on July 28th. The samples will be crushed and pulverized with standard steel and then proceed to be fire assayed for gold and a 24 multi-element Geochemistry for silver and multiple other trace elements.
This first phase drilling program is designed to establish strike length and test grades over a large enough width within the defined chlorite hematite hosted vein system. The drilling will attempt to define structural continuity (vein continuity along strike), grade of veins and hosting chl-hem zone, and find the width of structures. The program, as designed, should also demonstrate grade at reasonably shallow depths. The lowest drilling angle -45 degrees is envisioned for this program.
Alan Brown, President, of TMBXF stated “We are extremely pleased with the drilling on the Stardust Project and our team’s progress. Holes 3 and 4 are designed to test projection of gold mineralization in outcrop veins and silicification found just NE of one of the original shafts on the property. We look forwarding to receiving and reviewing the assay results and sharing with our shareholders, as there have been multiple locations of veins throughout the core that we have sent for assay.“
