Tombstone Exploration's Hi-Tech GeoPhysical Program Has Commenced
PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - June 30, 2010) - Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTCBB: TMBXF) announced today that the Company has contracted Geotech Ltd. of Ontario, Canada to fly an airborne Z-Axis Tipper Electromagnetic (ZTEM) on its Tombstone, Arizona property. ZTEM was selected for its ability to achieve unparalleled resolution and depth of investigation. The system is well suited to imaging buried porphyry deposits and is capable of gathering data over 6,000 feet (2 kilometers) below ground surface. Geotech arrived at the Tombstone property on Monday, June 28, 2010.
The airborne ZTEM survey will be over 200 line miles and will cover most of the Tombstone district. The data will be interpreted to provide targets for a giant, high-grade porphyry copper - gold deposit that can be mined by open pit or block caving mining methods. Tombstone is situated 25 miles north of the historic Bisbee porphyry copper mine. There are numerous exploration programs ongoing in the region for porphyry copper deposits.
The project is situated 150 miles southeast of the Resolution deposit, which is currently being explored by Rio Tinto, and is reported to contain an Inferred Resource of 1.34 billion tonnes containing 1.51% copper and 0.04% molybdenum. The Tombstone project has two major intrusions (granodiorite and porphyry) underlain by sediments that could host a Resolution style deposit.
Alan Brown, CEO of Tombstone, commented, "The ZTEM is the most advanced technology available for discovering ore bodies at depth. To understand this technology further, please view www.geotech.ca. This technology is used by many of the major mining companies in their exploration programs."
Geotech Ltd. provides full service contract airborne geophysical surveys, data processing and data interpretation. At the present time, Geotech Ltd. offers VTEM (helicopter-borne time-domain electromagnetic), ZTEM and AirMt (measure natural alternating magnetic fields in the audio-frequency range), magnetic, magnetic gradient and gamma-ray spectrometer surveys. Geotech Ltd. operates nine VTEM systems in North America and world-wide, a total of 30. Their clients are mainly from the mineral and petroleum exploration industries. The proprietary, large dipole moment VTEM system, in the six years since its first commercial survey, has become the airborne system of choice by the exploration community. A number of exploration successes have been attributed to VTEM surveys by the exploration companies.
Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTCBB: TMBXF) is focused primarily on exploration and development of mineral resources. Tombstone Exploration Corporation has the mineral rights to approximately 14,000 acres of historical mining land in the areas around Tombstone, Arizona and is the largest landholder in the Tombstone Mining District.

Aurelian is pleased to announce that a drilling location has been agreed for the first of a three well programme in its Bieszczady block in the Carpathian Thrust Fold Belt. The well, which spuds in Q4 2010, will target an oil prospect of up to 100 million barrels and is expected to take two to three months to drill. Results from the well are expected in December 2010.
A number of reservoirs, all of which are proven producers in the region, are being targeted by this well and the current prospect will be drilled to a depth of around 4600m. There are several other similar sized prospects on trend which will be derisked in the event of the success of this first well. Using existing 2D seismic data, up to 680 million barrels of unrisked prospective resources have been mapped over prospects in the block.
Aurelian is also pleased to announce that there will be a further 300 km of 2D seismic acquired on the licence, starting in August. This survey will be shot to the north and east of the existing 2D covered area and it is hoped that the prospect inventory for the licence will be further enlarged with new prospects following the interpretation of this new survey in Q1/Q2 2011.
Interests in Bieszczady are Polskie Gornichtwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo (51%) (Operator), Energia Bieszczady Sp. z o.o. (25%) (a 100% subsidiary of Aurelian Oil and Gas Poland Sp. z o.o.) and Eurogas Polska Sp. z o.o. (24%).

NGFE is pleased to report from Global Shale Gas Forum in Berlin, Germany organized by Marcus Evans. The following is our brief summary of the events of Day 1 of the conference:
The movers and shakers of the global shale gas revolution are now gathered in Berlin, Germany, 6-8 September to review the Prospects for Europe and Emulating the USA’s Success in Capitalizing from Unconventional Gas Reserves.
Over 20 years after the reunification of Germany’s divided city, the dynamic business dynamo, Berlin, arguably the capital of the new Europe, is proving to be an apt choice of venue for discussing how the continent will fulfill its energy needs in the coming decades.
While presenters at the Global Shale Gas Forum noted European mandates in the coming decades to cut emissions in regards to electricity generation, presumably by embracing natural gas, for now, Europe is still highly dependent on imported gas.
One place in which Europe’s natural gas fortunes could change, though, is Ukraine.
Wolfgang Rauball, CEO & Chairman Chief Geologist, Eastern Europe for EuroGas, Inc. spoke about his company’s long-term commitment to the Silurian shale basin in eastern Ukraine which, given the political will, could help that country move towards self-sufficiency.
“Today, Ukraine is not energy self sufficient, but is an energy giant which has not realized its potential,” explained Rauball. “It imports a majority of the oil and gas that it consumes. The awareness to achieve self-sufficiency is not yet there. The present business climate lacks transparency and is one reason you don’t have the major oil companies trying to get concessions in Ukraine – none have been issued to date on this side,” he said (in contrast to Poland).
Pending movement by the Ukrainian government, which froze many business developments following the election of new leadership earlier this year, EuroGas, reported Rauball, will soon choose a European oil and gas major – Total and ENI are in the running – to begin its shale gas drilling operations in Ukraine this year.
For the most part, though, presenters at the Shale Gas Forum offered their enterprises’ experiences in North America and how the know-how gathered there might be transferred to shale gas operations in Europe.
“We’ve learned a great deal in the last few years,” said Talisman Energy’s Unconventional Gas Specialist, New Plays, Basim Faraj PhD, whose speech at the Global Shale Gas Forum was entitled Shale Gas: A Growing North American Reality and Its Global Implications.
“We know the geochemistry is critical,” he said, “and now the argument for gas – ‘where is it going to come from?’ is over, due to the emergence of shale gas.”
Faraj added, “Commitment is needed to make a transfer of the technology from the US.”
Senior Advisor Science & Technology at M-I SWACO, Thomas Geehan Ph.D spoke of the possible impacts on local communities affected by drilling at nearby shale plays in North America. He said, “Barnett shale water usage is equivalent to that of a town with a population of 4,000. The two most sensitive points in Europe are going to be the water usage and the waste disposal.”
Geehan listed the fracking fluid additives that need to be dealt with, like friction reducer, biocide, oxygen scavenger and scale inhibitor (sand), mentioning that this aspect has been generating public concern.
“This is the hysteria that is being generated at the moment, that people’s drinking water is being affected by nearby fracking,” he said.
Still, optimism prevailed. Reflecting upon his company’s experience at the Barnett shale in North America, ENI’s Enrico Cingolani, Senior Vice President of the Italian energy enterprise’s East Europe Program, spoke about the critical factors for realizing margins in European shell gas.
“The development costs will no doubt be high in Europe,” he explained. “The margins in the US are very tight, but in Europe the market makes for a different story. I have no doubt that we will need gas for the future in Europe, and it’s no doubt that it will be an importer in the years to come. If we take into account the sharp decline in gas production, we can have no doubt that the development of shale gas will be utilized.”
Among the crucial questions posed at the summit by Prof. Mike Stephenson, Head of Science, Energy at the British Geological Survey, was, “Can US technology be applied in Europe. Do all of the things developed there work in our shales?”
He answered, “In the longer term what we have to realize is where we are with shale is where we were 30 years with conventional, for example like sandstone. After a while you had to start thinking about sandstones, put more science into it and got more oil out of it.”
“It’s always an exciting time to be at the start of a new adventure. Unconventional gas is particularly new in Europe,” said Andrew Jennings, Unconventional Resource Manager at WesternGeco, who spoke about where surface seismic data can specifically help in reducing risk when it’s designed for shale gas development.
“The data overall is sparse in the European shale gas plays,” reported Jennings. “There’s limited seismic and limited wells being drilled. The presence of faults and natural fractures need to be understood.”

EuroGas to Earn Up to 60% Interest in Lumby/Bufo Ontario Gold Property Adjoining Osisko Mining's 6.7 Million Ounce Hammond Reef Gold Deposit
NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 9, 2010) - EuroGas, Inc. (EuroGas) (PINKSHEETS: EUGS) (FRANKFURT: EUG) (XETRA: EUG) (HAMB: EUG) (STUT: EUG) today announced that it has entered into an option agreement with Belmont Resources Inc. whereby EuroGas can earn up to a 60% interest in the Lumby/Bufo property (16 contiguous claims - 2,144 ha) located approximately 35 km. northeast of the town of Atikokan, Ontario and adjoining on strike to the north-northeast with Osisko Mining Corp's Hammond Reef deposit. The Hammond Reef deposit was discovered and developed by Brett Resources Inc. which was acquired by Osisko Mining earlier this year.
To earn its initial 49% interest, EuroGas must issue one million restricted shares of its common stock to Belmont, incur $1,500,000 in exploration expenditures by December 31, 2011 ($500,000 of which must be spent by December 31, 2010), and make a small cash payment to Belmont ($50,000). Belmont will be the operator until EuroGas earns greater than 50% interest. Assuming a successful drill program, EuroGas can then opt to increase its stake to 60% by issuing an additional five million shares of its common stock to Belmont; incurring an additional $500,000 in exploration expenditures by December 31, 2012; and, paying Belmont an additional $50,000.
The Lumby/Bufo claim group has potential for the discovery of high-grade gold, silver and base metals deposits, as shown by Belmont's recent drilling in the south Bufo Lake area, and previous exploration work carried out by Atikokan Resources Inc. from 1994 to 2004. South of the Lumby/Bufo property, Osisko is focused on expanding gold resources at the Hammond Reef gold deposit. A preliminary assessment ("PA") study was completed on Hammond Reef on November 12, 2009, resulting in an inferred resource of 6.7 million ounces of gold (259.4 million tonnes grading 0.8 g/t gold at a cut-off grade at 0.30 g/t, which relates to the economic cut-off in the PA study). The deposit remains open along strike and depth, and over 97% of this resource is within 300 meters of surface.
300 km 2D seismic survey commenced on Bieszczady licence in Carpathian Thrust Fold Belt
A survey to acquire a further 300 km of 2D seismic has now commenced in the Company's Bieszczady licence in the Carpathian Thrust Fold Belt. Good quality information has already been obtained from this survey which will be shot to the north and east of the existing 2D covered area and will be interpreted in Q1/Q2 2011. Completion of this survey will take block coverage to approximately 40%.
Interests in Bieszczady are Polskie Gornictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo (51%) (Operator), Energia Bieszczady Sp. z o.o. (25%) (a 100% subsidiary of Aurelian Oil and Gas Poland Sp. z o.o.) and Eurogas Polska Sp. z o.o. (24%).
