Phoenix, Arizona--(Newsfile Corp. - August 31, 2017) - Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTC PINK: TMBXF), a fully reporting company, announced today that the Company has completed the filing and payment of all of its Bureau of Land Management (BLM) mining claims for the Eagletail Mining District, which is located in the State of Arizona for the year 2017 — 2018.
During 2016, the Company's geological team identified surface high grade gold results from a detailed mapping and sampling of a mineralized trend in the 100% owned claim block in Yuma County, AZ in the Eagletail Mining District. Highlights include a sample returning 7.04 g/t gold with multiple other samples above 1 g/t gold of the 70 samples sent for assay.
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. The mineralization present at the Stardust project appears to be located within detachment related veins & locally intensively chloritic and hematitic host rocks.
Tombstone Exploration Corporation announced on August 3rd it had completed the first phase of drilling on this Stardust Claim Block. Upon receipt of all drill results, a detailed geological report will be completed and prepared for our next phase of exploration.
The core samples for all the holes were delivered to Skyline Assayers and Laboratories in Tucson, Arizona, and we are awaiting final results. The samples will be crushed and pulverized with standard steel and then proceed to be fire assayed for gold and a 24 multi-element Geochemistry for silver and multiple other trace elements.
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.
