Tombstone Exploration Corporation Completes the First Phase of Its 2010 Drill Program

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) -  Tombstone Exploration Corp. (OTCBB: TMBXF) announced today that the Company has completed the first round of drilling at its wholly owned property at Tombstone, Arizona. To date, 4,080 feet of drilling has been completed. 

Samples have been submitted to a certified laboratory for analysis. Results are expected in a few weeks and additional samples will continue to be submitted. Also during this period, additional geologist investigation has been undertaken to further assess the potential for porphyry copper exploration targets on Tombstone's property. The Company has been in contact with geophysical contractors to develop a plan, budget and timeline for this phase of the project. Planning is ongoing and work may include geochemical surveys as well.

Eurogas Inc. announced last week that it has committed $1,000,000 to Tombstone. The funds will be used for exploration and general corporate expenditures. Eurogas Inc. trades on the U.S. and Frankfurt Stock Exchanges. Eurogas has property to the south of Tombstone's holdings, and the Contention Pit in Tombstone, which is an open pit gold/silver mine operated in the 1980s. An international mining company has also acquired property on the southern border of Tombstone's land holdings.

Alan Brown, CEO of Tombstone, commented, "We are waiting on the results of our first round of drilling. In the meantime, we are planning the next phase of our exploration program, which includes the potential for porphyry copper targets on our land holdings."
