PHOENIX, AZ - FEBRUARY 24, 2022
PHOENIX, AZ – February 24, 2022--(GLOBE NEWSWIRE)—Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTCQB: TMBXF), a fully reporting U.S. based mining company, announced today in combination with Goldrock Resources Inc. and the Bonanza Mining Company, the processing facility at the Bonanza Harquahala Mine is now fully operating 24 hours per day and the leach system is fully functioning as gold & silver is running in the solution.
The crusher system was set up on the southeast corner of the property, which is at the bottom of the ore stockpile and in a place we can load directly. The ore will flow into the jaw crusher and the feed chute will load directly onto the pad. We expect to be putting 25,000 tons of crushed rock monthly on the pad over the next three months and then increasing to 50,000 tons per month.
The Company is following all protocols with “culture and safety” and has completed many of the small important projects. The water supply system throughout the site has been plumbed in. There is now water for crusher area, carbon column area and domestic use.
Alan Brown, TMBXF President & CEO, commented, “We are pleased that this project is now fully operational 24/7 and are expecting continuous pours of gold and silver throughout the year as we continue to add additional rock on the pad and expand the amount of rock being leached at the Bonanza Mine.”
The Bonanza Mine property includes the Harquahala and Golden Eagle mines, located approximately eight miles south of Salome, Arizona. The project totals 2,656 acres and has significant potential for gold and silver production in multiple phases moving forward. The Bonanza Mine is located where the Prolific Walker Lane & the Sonoran Geosyncline overlap, with likely extensions of Carlin Trend and Mesquite-style mineralization, generating Arizona’s biggest, richest gold deposits.
