Tombstone Exploration Receives Financing and Approval of All State Exploration Permits

TOMBSTONE, AZ--(Marketwire - Jul 14, 2011) - Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTCBB: TMBXF) (OTCQB: TMBXF) announced today the closing of its non-brokered private placement of 10 million common shares at a price of $0.05 per share, for gross proceeds of $500,000 from Haywood Securities ( Haywood also received a warrant to purchase 5 million shares at $0.10.

The proceeds of this offering will be used to continue TMBXF's exploration program, including geophysical work and ground IP on its wholly owned property in the Tombstone Mining District along with additional sampling and possibly drilling of further near surface silver/gold targets that have not been drilled and are historically the most sought after resource in the Tombstone area.

The Company will also be working to secure additional financing in the amount of $5 million, of which the proceeds will be used to drill the deep porphyry copper targets that will be identified with the completion of the geophysical program. These deep drill holes will also drill through near surface structures expected to contain Silver/ Gold mineralization.

Tombstone will apply for a TSX Venture exchange listing in Canada as priority for the Company to engage a much greater number of financing opportunities. TMBXF will also continue to trade on the OTCBB and OTCQB.

TMBXF has renewed all of its State Exploration Permits in the Tombstone Mining District and they have been executed and finalized by the Arizona State Land Department. The renewals encompass five sections, totaling approximately 2,600 acres in the Tombstone Mining District. These sections are underlain principally by 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.

Alan Brown, President of TMBXF, stated, "We are pleased to receive the financing from Haywood Securities. Considerable work on the property can be accomplished to advance the exploration with the $500,000 prior to the significant drill program planned."

TMBXF is focused primarily on exploration and development of mineral resources. Tombstone Exploration Corporation has the mineral rights to approximately 11,500 acres of historical mining land in the areas around Tombstone, Arizona and is the largest landholder in the Tombstone Mining District.
