Tumi Resources Limited-Tumi Resources Completes Drilling at La Trini Silver-Gold Project, Jalisco, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 21, 2007) - Tumi Resources Limited ("Tumi" and/or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:TM)(OTCBB:TUMIF)(FRANKFURT:TUY). David Henstridge, President of Tumi, announces the completion of the Phase 2 reverse circulation (RC) drill program at its La Trini silver-gold project in Mexico, where the Company has the right to earn a 100% interest. Twenty drill holes were completed totaling 2,768m.

In September 2005, the Company announced the results of an initial 15 hole reverse circulation drill program focused on the central 200m strike length of a rhyolite porphyry host. Surface, underground and drill evidence suggests that the porphyry that hosts the disseminated silver/gold mineralization is an intrusive rather than a volcanic. The rhyolite dips shallowly to the north and has been traced over a distance of 1 km east-west and remains open both along strike and down dip.

Fourteen of the Phase 1 drill holes intersected mineralization. Using a cut-off grade of 30 g/t silver, composite results ranged from a minimum width of 2m to a maximum of 38.6m, with a best result of 18.3m at a grade of 150 g/t silver and 3.1 g/t gold in drill hole TRRC-06 (see press release dated September 29, 2005). Within an area 200m east-west by 100m north-south, the holes intersected silver/gold mineralization over an average 14m thickness; the mineralization remains open both along strike and down-dip. Under the Phase 2 RC drill program, 11 holes totaling 1,953m have been completed in this zone extending the drilled area to about 300m east-west by 400m north-south. Samples have been submitted to International Plasma Labs Ltd. in Vancouver, Canada.

Nine holes totaling 815m were also drilled in a number of areas up to 900m west and 600m east of the mineralized area to test the extensions of the rhyolite host rock.

The drill rig has been demobilized from La Trini and is being relocated to Tumi's 100%-owned Phoenix gold-silver prospect in Sonora. An initial 14-hole RC drill program is scheduled at Phoenix.

The qualified person for Tumi's projects, David Henstridge, a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and a Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists, has visited the La Trini project area and has verified the contents of this news release.

On behalf of the Board,

David Henstridge, President & CEO
