Tombstone Exploration Corporation Confirms Two Porphyry Targets With ZTEM, Additional Targets Being Assessed

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - November 16, 2010) - Tombstone Exploration Corp. (OTCBB: TMBXF) announced today that the Company is continuing its work with the geophysical data on its Tombstone Project. The ZTEM data indicates there are at least two target zones on the Company's property; however, there is a very large land position to review. The information is outstanding and the Company continues to map the ZTEM results with past drilling and historical geological information of the District.

One target has been compared by Tombstone's geophysical contractor to the Mount Milligan deposit that was recently sold, has a total measured and indicated resources of 417.1 Mt grading 0.21% copper, 0.41g/t gold for 1,934 million lbs copper and 5.5 million oz gold. The Mount Milligan Mine is expected to be a large scale open pit mine with mining production of 60,000 tons per day. This target also has precious metal occurrences on a "halo" around the property, which is a significant characteristic of porphyry systems.

Another target zone has a similar geophysical signature and is adjacent to a porphyry system that is currently being drilled by a major international mining company. Additional possible targets are still being assessed and a specialized consultant may be contracted to give further guidance.

Alan Brown, CEO of Tombstone, commented that on Sunday, November 14th, The Arizona Republic published an article on Arizona's mining future, stating, 'Industry experts said it was likely that significant undiscovered copper deposits hide underground in Arizona, and companies should be encouraged to keep up exploration efforts in the State.'
