Tombstone Exploration Corp. concentrates their efforts mainly on the exploration and development of mineral resources. They have the mineral rights to approximately 11,500 acres of historical mining land in the areas around Tombstone, Arizona. In fact, they are now the largest holder of land in the Tombstone Mining District.
Tombstone Exploration Corporation will consider joint venture mining or other initiatives that will eventually expedite mining operation on their Tombstone property. This will be after the completion of necessary feasibility studies. The Company will acquire new properties via expansion and integrate the extraction of precious metals, rare earth, and other minerals. Their corporate goal is to produce metals and minerals below standard industry costs
