Tombstone Exploration, an Arizona based exploration and mining company with the goal of producing metals and minerals at or below standard industry costs, controls one of the biggest mining properties in southern Arizona. It has mineral rights to roughly 11,500 acres of historical mining land near the historic town of Tombstone, Arizona, and is now the largest holder of land in the Tombstone Mining District.
The company is rapidly positioning itself to capitalize on the increasing demand (and prices) for copper, zinc, iron, precious metals and other base metals. Initial geological studies have been completed, and indicate a high probability of significant financial returns, consistent with historical recoveries from the district.
Initial operations will primarily focus on generating revenue from the production of silver, gold, and barium, as well as additional base minerals such as copper, lead, and zinc. Arizona is well known for copper production, and the potential for the recovery of copper and other minerals is expected to draw considerable interest from major copper producing companies, as well as precious metal mining concerns.
The company is set to initiate mineral extraction as soon as funding and permitting is secured. With the variety of metals projected for extraction from the area, Tombstone Exploration expects major attention and support from the local, state, and federal government. The historical nature of mining activities in the area, together with anticipated governmental support, will enable easier startup.
The company has initiated discussions with precious metal processing and consulting companies to assist in the design of the overall operation of the Tombstone property, and relationships have been established with refineries, assay companies, and engineering firms supporting worldwide mineral processing operations.
