Phoenix, AZ – May 30, 2017--Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTCPK: TMBXF), a fully reporting company announced today that Core(HQ) drilling will begin next week on its 100% owned Stardust Claims located in Yuma County, Arizona.
TMBXF’S Reclamation Bond was accepted on May 17, 2017, by the United States Bureau of Land Management, and prior to this, the Notice Application to conduct exploration drilling plan was accepted.
TMBXF has engaged Harris Exploration Drilling and Associates Inc. (Harris Drilling), a Nevada company to commence drilling on the Stardust property the first week of June. Harris Drilling has been in business for over fifty years and has worked for many of the top mining and exploration companies in the world.
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. This phase will include approximately 3000 ft of drilling.
The mineralization present at the Stardust Project appears to be located within detachment related veins hosted by intensively chloritic and hematitic host rocks. The vein system has been sampled over a strike of approximately 3200 feet (975 meters). These veins appear to be a feeder system of an extensive partially eroded low angle fault system regionally present.
Alan Brown, President of TMBXF, stated “We are extremely pleased to commence the start of this drilling campaign and confident of our potential for discovering a gold deposit for our shareholders. We look forward to providing updates over the course of the campaign“.
