Tombstone Exploration Corporation Adds to Acreage in Tombstone Mining District -- Awaiting Analysis for 127 Surface Samples

TOMBSTONE, AZ--(Marketwire - December 11, 2007) - Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTCBB: TMBXF) announced today that after geological reconnaissance of the area surrounding the Company's 11,000 acres, it is expanding its holdings. The Company has applied for the additional exploration permits from the State of Arizona Land Department. The applications encompass approximately 1,100 hectares (2,718 acres) in the Tombstone Mining District. The rocks in these parcels are principally the Bisbee Group sediments and metasediments that have been highly productive in both the Tombstone Mining District and in the Warren (Bisbee) Mining District, Arizona.

Tombstone Exploration submitted 127 surface samples from the Tombstone Project to Mountain States Research and Development International for analysis on November 30, 2007. Blanks and certified reference standards were inserted into the sample batch as part of the Company's QA/QC practices.

Alan Brown, President and CEO of Tombstone Exploration, commented, "Through the hard work and due diligence of our management team, this available acreage was discovered. Our Company is now the largest holder of mineral rights in the Tombstone Mining District. We are excited about this enhancement to our current projects and will further evaluate existing holdings as well as the additional acreage."

Tombstone Exploration Corporation is structured and positioned to capitalize on today's increasing demand and prices for precious and base metals such as gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc. Tombstone Exploration Corporation has the mineral rights to approximately 11,000 acres of historical mining land in the areas around Tombstone, Arizona and is now the largest land holder in the Tombstone mining district, which is one of the recent largest mining property acquisitions in Arizona. Through expansion, the Company 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.
