PHOENIX, Dec. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTCQB: TMBXF), a fully reporting company, in combination with Goldrock Resources Inc. and the Bonanza Mining Company, announced today that the permits are expecting final approval in January 2020 and once approved, this will allow the construction of the leach pad to begin on their Bonanza mining project. The initial portion of the Phase One leach pad will accommodate 500,000 tons of already mined material that have been tested to show upwards or more of 26,000 – 50,000oz of gold. This has a valuation of over $50 million USD at current market price.
Given that gold has risen 20% over the last year and is now approaching $1500, it is no surprise that investor interest in gold continues to grow worldwide. The management team at Tombstone Exploration understands the opportunity to exponentially increase shareholder value. Using modern mining techniques on properties that produced large quantities of precious metals in the 1800s, the Company feels that they are on the right track to realizing substantial profits by processing the large amount of tailings and mined rock from former mines without having the overall costs associated with building out a brand new mining operation.
As stated in the previous PR, CDM Smith Corporation has been hired as the general contractor for the Bonanza project. A meeting was held with the CDM Smith Project manager on December 6th at the Bonanza Harquahala Mine site to kick off the construction management building part of the project in anticipation of the permits being completed imminently. This meeting laid the groundwork for a strong business plan going forward on the project. Multiple future projects were also discussed.
Alan Brown, Tombstone Exploration CEO and President, stated, “We are excited about the progress that has been made and how smooth the permitting process has been. We are looking forward to begin Phase One of our largest project and bringing long term value to our shareholders. We are looking forward to seeing our long term goals become strong, highly profitable and be a very successful player in the precious metals market.”
