    VANCOUVER, Sept. 4 /CNW/ - Tumi Resources Limited (the "Company")
(TSXV-TM; OTCBB - TUMIF; Frankfurt - TUY). Mr David Henstridge, President,
announces the acquisition, through staking of the Blixbo nr 1 (581 hectares)
exploration permit within the Bergslagen Mining District of south-central
Sweden. The Blixbo nr 1 claim application has been confirmed by the Swedish
Mining Inspectorate and is expected to be soon granted for an initial three
year period. Tumi holds a strong land tenure position in Bergslagen, being is
one Sweden's most important mining districts, and home to numerous historic
and operating iron, manganese, base-metal and silver sulphide mines.
    The Blixbo claim application is located 25km east-northeast of the town
of Falun, central Sweden. The claim secures a massive sulphide horizon up to
two meters in width, comprised of sphalerite, chalcopyrite and pyrite within a
volcanic host. Historical records indicate the site was first discovered in
the early 1950's, at which time a sample taken by Boliden assayed 33.8% Zn,
0.8% Pb, 0.4% Cu, 175 ppm Ag, 0.4 ppm Au and 0.4% W. Two channel samples taken
recently by Tumi's geologists verified these high grades. A 1.5 metre wide
channel sample assayed 21.4% Zn, 1.8% Pb, 1.3% Cu, 131 ppm Ag and 2.3 ppm Au.
A second 2 metre wide channel sample taken about 25 metres away from the first
returned 9.9% Zn, 1.3% Pb, 0.7% Cu, 85 ppm Ag and 0.2 ppm Au.
    Host rocks to sphalerite mineralization are 1.86 to 1.95 million years
old felsic and mafic metavolcanic supracrustal rocks. The mineralization is
located approximately five km south of what is believed to be a volcanic
center where several massive intrusions of gabbro occur near the center of a
circular structure. Several historic base-metal mines are located in the
immediate vicinity, including the now closed Svardsjo mine, held under tenure
by the Company. The region has undergone several phases of folding and has
been intruded by at least two generations of granitoids.
    The sequence of rocks mapped at Blixbo host significant economic
mineralization elsewhere within the Bergslagen Mining District. Tumi's
exploration program will begin with delineation of the mineralized horizon
along strike from the mineralized exposure using soil geochemistry. The
Company is also considering flying of the licence area with airborne
    The qualified person for the Company's projects, Mr. David Henstridge, a
Fellow of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and a Member of
the Australian Institute of Geoscientists, has visited the Blixbo property in
Sweden and has verified the contents of this press release.
