TUMI COMMENCES DIAMOND DRILLING AT VITTURN, SWEDEN

VANCOUVER, May 25, 2011 /CNW/ - Tumi Resources Limited (the "Company") (TSXV - TM; Pink Sheets - TUMIF; Frankfurt - TUY).  Mr. David Henstridge, President, reports that diamond drilling has commenced at the Vitturn Prospect, Sweden.  The Company owns 100% of three claims known as Vitturn 1, 2 and 3 that are located at the northern end of the Stollberg mineral fields where numerous old base metal and silver mines occur along a north-south trending belt over a distance of 12 km.  The Stollberg mines were in operation for close to 800 years and had reached depths of more than 750 m when they were closed in 1982.

The Company completed an induced polarization survey to test the theory that the favorable mineral horizon extends northwards under till cover into Vitturn 1 and 2.  An independent geophysicist has interpreted the results on behalf of the Company and has reported: "the data quality for the survey is of a very high standard with both the observed resistivity and chargeability data very coherent.  The most obvious feature delineated by the data is the coincident high chargeable-low resistivity body that strikes in NNW orientation for approximately 400 m.  The correlation of the elevated chargeability and the low resistivity, with the good levels of data quality and the high coherency of the chargeability decays makes this a high priority anomaly".

Mr. Henstridge stated: "The presence of this anomaly along strike from the Stollberg field makes it a high priority drill target, and we are pleased that we will be able to test the source of this anomaly with the first drill hole."

The qualified person for Tumi's projects, Anders Hogrelius, a Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists, has visited all of the Company's properties in Sweden and has verified the contents of this news release.
