Press Release

Phoenix, AZ--February 2, 2012

Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTC PINK: TMBXF), a fully reporting company (Berlin Stock Exchange: UDNA), announced today that Mr. Robert M. Hughes has been appointed to the TMBXF Board of Directors. 

Mr. Hughes is the CEO of Hughes Relocation Services Inc., a company engaged in local and interstate transportation of private residences and office and industrial establishments as agents for United Van Lines and Mayflower Transit.  He currently also serves as a Director on several corporate and local boards in his community.  Mr. Hughes received his Masters Degree from George Washington University in 1976.

Alan M. Brown, President of TMBXF, stated, "We would like to welcome Robert to TMBXF’s Board of Directors.  His experience and expertise in business includes building very successful companies, one of which was the second largest PODS franchise servicing New Jersey, Delaware and Eastern PA.  

Tombstone Exploration Corporation is finalizing the next phase of its exploration plan for the Stardust Property. The Company will be focusing on a zone of intense fracturing that was determined to exist across an area of approximately 700 meters in length and 250 meters in width as the high priority drill targets.  This was recently identified by the completion of a ground based geophysical program performed by Zonge International that has identified multiple Gold drill targets on the property. This zone of fracturing is seen in a magnetic signature and is indicative of destruction of magnetic minerals from the possible introduction of hydrothermal fluids. The next phase of exploration including drilling will be to confirm and expand on a initial report showing a resource of approximately 2-3M tons with average gold values of 0.06-0.20 opt.

Tombstone Exploration Corporation is a gold silver copper exploration company based in Phoenix, Arizona.  The Company’s goal is to maximize shareholder value through focused exploration, testing and development of high quality mineral targets in the prolific mineral producing areas in S.W. USA.  This goal will be achieved in part through the application of the best mineral exploration practices and techniques available to the Company’s experienced exploration and management team, including adherence to the highest possible standards of corporate responsibility, governance and conduct.
