Tumi Resources Limited-Tumi Resources Defines Drill Target at Sala, Sweden

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - June 20, 2007) - Tumi Resources Limited ("Tumi" and/or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TM)(OTCBB:TUMIF)(FRANKFURT:TUY). David Henstridge, President, announces that the work program over the last year has defined a significant drill target within the wholly-owned Sala property in the Bergslagen District of Sweden. Approval for an initial diamond drilling program has been lodged with the authorities, as required by Swedish Mining Law. A drill contract will be signed as soon as approval is given.

Sala, now a historical mine site, was Europe's largest silver producer since the 16th century; it ceased production in the early part of the 20th century. Historical records show it was likely that more than 200 million ozs of silver were recovered from Sala with grades as high as 7,000 g/t. The sulphide ore is hosted dominantly by limestone and dolostone which have been folded and faulted with the underlying metamorphosed felsic volcanics and pyroclastics. The series of shafts along the Sala orebodies trend more or less in a north-northwestern direction, apparently controlled by fault structures. Longitudinal sections indicate that the ore zone at Sala (as indicated by mined-out workings) plunges gently to the north. There is a strong possibility that there are other mineralized horizons at depth, along strike or in parallel structures that do not come to surface. A large portion of the property south and west of the historic mines is in flat-lying land with little exposure; the limestone/volcanic contact zone has been projected into this area.

During the last year at Sala, the Company has completed a literature search of all historical data from the area, detailed ground mapping and 44 line-kms of detailed ground EM covering the old mine and surrounding prospective ground. As a result of this work, a drill target has been defined immediately to the west of and parallel to the old mine and extending to the southwest. The potential target strike length is about one kilometer. There is evidence of old drill holes in this area; no information about these holes has been found in the public domain.

Mr Henstridge stated: "We are very pleased to have located a significant drill target within the same geological sequence as the historic high-grade Sala silver mine. We are looking forward to the commencement of this drill program".

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 Sala project in the Bergslagen District, Sweden, and has verified the contents of this news release.
