Tumi Resources Limited-Tumi Stakes Base Metal Prospect Near Falun, Sweden

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 4, 2007) - Tumi Resources Limited (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TM)(OTCBB:TUMIF)(FRANKFURT:TUY). Mr David Henstridge, President, announces the acquisition, through staking of the Blixbo nr 1 (581 hectares) exploration permit within the Bergslagen Mining District of south-central Sweden. The Blixbo nr 1 claim application has been confirmed by the Swedish Mining Inspectorate and is expected to be soon granted for an initial three year period. Tumi holds a strong land tenure position in Bergslagen, being is one Sweden's most important mining districts, and home to numerous historic and operating iron, manganese, base-metal and silver sulphide mines.

The Blixbo claim application is located 25km east-northeast of the town of Falun, central Sweden. The claim secures a massive sulphide horizon up to two meters in width, comprised of sphalerite, chalcopyrite and pyrite within a volcanic host. Historical records indicate the site was first discovered in the early 1950's, at which time a sample taken by Boliden assayed 33.8% Zn, 0.8% Pb, 0.4% Cu, 175 ppm Ag, 0.4 ppm Au and 0.4% W. Two channel samples taken recently by Tumi's geologists verified these high grades. A 1.5 metre wide channel sample assayed 21.4% Zn, 1.8% Pb, 1.3% Cu, 131 ppm Ag and 2.3 ppm Au. A second 2 metre wide channel sample taken about 25 metres away from the first returned 9.9% Zn, 1.3% Pb, 0.7% Cu, 85 ppm Ag and 0.2 ppm Au.

Host rocks to sphalerite mineralization are 1.86 to 1.95 million years old felsic and mafic metavolcanic supracrustal rocks. The mineralization is located approximately five km south of what is believed to be a volcanic center where several massive intrusions of gabbro occur near the center of a circular structure. Several historic base-metal mines are located in the immediate vicinity, including the now closed Svardsjo mine, held under tenure by the Company. The region has undergone several phases of folding and has been intruded by at least two generations of granitoids.

The sequence of rocks mapped at Blixbo host significant economic mineralization elsewhere within the Bergslagen Mining District. Tumi's exploration program will begin with delineation of the mineralized horizon along strike from the mineralized exposure using soil geochemistry. The Company is also considering flying of the licence area with airborne electromagnetics.

The qualified person for the Company's projects, Mr. David Henstridge, a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and a Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists, has visited the Blixbo property in Sweden and has verified the contents of this press release.

On behalf of the Board,

David Henstridge, President & CEO
