Press Release

Phoenix, AZ – May 2, 2017

Phoenix, AZ – May 2, 2017--Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTCPK: TMBXF),  a fully reporting company announced today that on April 27, 2017 it paid the US Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) the required reclamation bond fee to drill exploration holes on its 100% owned unpatented mining claims at the Stardust Project, located in Yuma County, Arizona.

The encouraging results from the rock sampling program over the Stardust Project indicate the presence of a high angle detachment related precious metals vein system.  Highlights include a sample returning 7.04 g/t gold with multiple other samples over 1 g/t gold of the 70 assay results.

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 excited about this next phase of exploration and very optimistic that this prospect will significantly further the growth of our company.  This first drill phase at Stardust will attempt further definition of the character, size and potential of the Stardust Property”.  TMBXF has recently received a diamond core drilling proposal from a highly recommended professional drilling company to complete the first phase of drilling to be approximately 3000 ft.
