Tumi Completes Phase 1 Drill Program at Sala, Sweden

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(EMWPresswire – July 24, 2008) – Tumi Resources Limited (“Tumi” and/or “the Company”) (TSX VENTURE:TM)(OTCBB:TUMIF)(FRANKFURT:TUY). David Henstridge, President of Tumi, announces the completion of the Phase 1 core drill program at its 100% owned Sala silver-zinc-lead project in Sweden. Ten drill holes were completed totalling 2,282.3 meters.

On July 16, 2008, the Company announced the assay results of the first diamond drill hole at the Sala silver-zinc-lead project. The first hole intersected a 75 meter wide zone of highly anomalous zinc mineralization. Within this zone, semi-massive and stringer type sphalerite mineralization occur together with galena and unidentified silver minerals in three bands of up to 6.6 meters width.

The drill program has delineated a highly mineralized zone exceeding 800 meters in length, and after the completion of the Phase 1 drill program, the zone remains open along strike as well as towards depth. The deepest hole (08-003) intersected the mineralization between 394 and 461 meters depth. Core from this section has been split and prepared and is currently being assayed by IPL Laboratories in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. The mineralization has also been intersected in holes 08-004, 08-006 and 08-008 at a distance of up to 500 meters along strike from the initial intersection in hole 08-001.

The results from the Phase 1 drill program have confirmed that the structural geology of the new zone is similar to the now mined out ore body of the adjacent historical Sala Silver mine. Plans for a Phase 2 drilling program are currently underway. The objective of the Phase 2 drill program will be to determine the dimensions and extent of the mineralized zone focusing on the higher grade sections. Though a start date for the Phase 2 drilling program is yet to be decided, all necessary permits are in place and drilling can commence with relatively short notice.

As part of the Company’s sample control program, blanks, known standards and duplicates are also being assayed. Further results will be reported when available.

The qualified person for Tumi’s projects, David Henstridge, a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and a Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists, has visited the Sala Project area in Sweden and has approved the contents of this news release.

On behalf of the Board,

David Henstridge, President & CEO
