Mining stocks; TOMBSTONE EXPLORATION (OTCBB:TMBXF) TO BEGIN EXPLORATION OF PORPHYRY COPPER TARGETS

Phoenix, AZ – May 4, 2010 (Investorideas.com Mining Stocks Newswire) – Tombstone Exploration Corp. (OTCBB:TMBXF) announced today that the Company has made significant progress with its drilling program at its property at Tombstone, Arizona. To date, 2375 feet of drilling has been completed, with the drilling on the State of Maine still to be completed.

Follow up work on other targets on Tombstone’s property indicate that there is a possibility that porphyry copper deposits could be found. Previous drilling in the area indicates that porphyry systems exist and that there could be multiple targets in the district. Due to Tombstone’s extensive land holding of about 11,500 acres, there is potential for one or more of these systems on the Company’s property.

Recently, one of the largest mining companies in the world has been acquiring property on the southern border of Tombstone’s land holdings. There are a number of companies doing extensive exploration in southeastern Arizona for porphyry copper deposits as the general area has a long history of hosting these types of deposits. Tombstone has developed an exploration strategy for these deposits that includes airborne geophysical analysis and geochemical surveys to define potential targets.



Steven J. Radvak, P.E., Vice President of Exploration of Tombstone, commented, “The drilling program has progressed nicely and we are waiting for laboratory results for the initial drilling. Additional drilling may be warranted after these results have been received and analyzed. We have also started planning a major geophysical and geochemical survey to help delineate porphyry targets on our property.”


Alan Brown, CEO of Tombstone, commented, “The company is expanding it exploration program to include a search for large open pit style copper gold deposits."


Tombstone Exploration Corporation (TMBXF) is focused primarily on exploration and development of mineral resources. Tombstone Exploration Corporation has the mineral rights to approximately 11,500 acres of historical mining land in the areas around Tombstone, Arizona and is the largest landholder in the Tombstone Mining District.
