Phoenix, AZ – September 22, 2017 - Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTC PINK: TMBXF), a fully reporting company, announced today receipt of results from the phase one drill program conducted on the Company’s 100% owned Stardust Gold Project in Yuma County, Arizona.

The initial drill plan for this project was to be completed in two phases, with each phase to be approximately 3000 feet.   TMBXF completed phase one drilling,  which consisted  of 4 holes of the planned 20 hole drill program.  These initial holes were completed within a 1 acre area of the Stardust 400 acre land position. TMBXF drill results met managements expectations and confirmed its intent  to proceed with phase two.  Phase one  only touched the surface of the structures identified. Weather and terrain hindered the process and we are scheduling to proceed with phase two of the program starting in November. Phase two will be  conducted under optimal weather conditions, enhanced roadway logistics, and a drill plan that will integrate an altered drilling technique that will maximize efficiency and speed for the final 16 holes.  

The first phase drill program was designed to establish strike length and test grades over a large enough width within the defined chlorite hematite hosted vein system. The drilling was 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, has demonstrated grade at reasonably shallow depths. Phase two is designed to confirm the extension of these mineralized structures at a deeper depth and consume more extensive acreage.

Alan Brown, President of TMBXF, stated “We are most pleased with our initial results on the first phase of our drill program. The majority of the assays received for each interval over this initial drilled area present gold and silver and multiple other industrial minerals. All assays  will be discussed in a detailed research report to be prepared.

TMBXF is currently in discussions and anticipates to complete a detailed Investment Grade Research Report by the middle of the 4th quarter. This Report will provide an indepth overview of all of TMBXF’s properties, an updated status of the Stardust  drill campaign, and future discovery initiatives to enhance shareholder value.  The Report will be completed by an extremely well respected group of mining analysts that are followed by investors, mineral exploration investors and institutions throughout the world.
