Tombstone Exploration Corp. Completes First Drill Hole
Tombstone Exploration Corporation announced that its first drill hole, TEMC 101, has been completed at a depth of 980′. The down-the-hole survey was completed with readings at 150′ intervals with the Reflex EZ-Shot geophysical instrument, indicating that the drill hole remained very much on the direction and angle that had been set up. Recovery remained very high, averaging over 90%, while RQD was estimated at up to 85% in some places.
At approximately the last 200′, TEMC 101 intercepted a strong package of propylitic altered massive limestone, quite rich in pyrite up 5%. Pyrite occurs in different fashions as disseminated, thin lensoids along the bedding, cross-cut stringers and in aggregates. Manganese oxide stringers and veinlets occur in various places. In the district, manganese oxides are silver carriers. Currently, core samples from drill hole TEMC 101 are being photographed, diamond split, logged and sacked to be shipped to the laboratory.
Meanwhile, drill hole TEMC 102 has started drilling the first 20′ for casing. TEMC 102 has been designed to intercept the upper sector of the Santa Ana structure, a productive mine of the district with historical records of high grade production.
Alan Brown, President and CEO of Tombstone, remarked, “We are pleased with the progress and completion of TEMC 101, our first drill hole for the summer drill program. Once assay results are available, we will provide that information and also updates on TEMC 102.”
Tombstone Exploration Corporation (TMBXF) is structured and positioned to capitalize on today’s increasing demand and prices for precious metals and base metals such as copper, lead and zinc. Tombstone Exploration Corporation has the mineral rights to approximately 13,500 acres of historical mining land in the areas around Tombstone, Arizona. The Company is the largest landholder in the Tombstone mining district. Through expansion, Tombstone Exploration will acquire new properties, as well as integrate the extraction of precious and base metals. The goal is to produce metals and minerals below standard industry costs.
