Tumi Completes IP Survey at Tomtebo, Sweden Monday December 10, 1:26 pm ET
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 10, 2007) - Tumi Resources Limited (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TM - News; OTCBB:TUMIF - News; FRANKFURT:TUY - News). Mr David Henstridge, President, announces the completion of a gradient array induced polarization (IP) geophysical survey of the Company's 100% owned Tomtebo mineral exploration licence located in the Bergslagen District, Sweden. A total of 16.8km of lines, covering an area 1000m by 800m, was surveyed with a line spacing of 50m. The survey was undertaken by Suomen Malmi OY (SMOY) of Finland. The results of the IP survey will be reviewed, modeled and interpreted by an independent geophysicist in Australia. ADVERTISEMENT
The IP survey is a continuation of Tumi's regional exploration work in the Bergslagen area, seeking undiscovered silver and base metal deposits. A helicopter-borne electromagnetic (EM) survey undertaken last year at Tomtebo identified several conductors in the immediate vicinity of the Tomtebo mine and the ground based IP survey is expected to aid in the identification of drilling targets within the area. A preliminary analysis of the IP survey has supported the existence of a previously unexplained EM conductor located 300m NE of the largest workings at Tomtebo. Several other EM conductors previously identified as being caused by man-made activities are also being reviewed as possible targets since they also were detected as high-chargeability anomalies by the IP survey.
Tomtebo has been interpreted to be a classic volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposit hosted within highly deformed Precambrian volcanics. The larger sulphide lenses are found in the fold hinges where they have been rolled into steeply plunging cylindrical bodies. In the Tomtebo area four of the larger lenses have produced ore and two smaller ore bodies were discovered in the 1970's by diamond drilling from within the mine.
The qualified person for Tumi's projects, David Henstridge, has visited the Tomtebo licence in the Bergslagen District, Sweden, and has verified the contents of this news release.
On behalf of the Board,
David Henstridge, President & CEO
