Sultan Minerals Inc. (SUL:TSX-V) ("Sultan") has now received assays for surface drill holes JS07-48 through JS07-61 on its 100% owned Jersey-Emerald tungsten-molybdenum and lead-zinc property in southern British Columbia. Five of the 14 widely spaced holes together with the 27 holes reported in March demonstrate that lead-zinc mineralization extends well beyond the limits of the historic mining operation at Jersey.
Drilling sought to determine the extent of lead-zinc beyond the southern end of the historic Jersey mine, formerly BC's second largest lead-zinc mine. Very favourable results were obtained from five of the holes which intersected encouraging lead and zinc concentrations as far as 400 feet (122 metres) south and 450 feet (137 metres) east of the former mine workings. These results together with assays reported in March have successfully defined a 7,000-foot (2,100-metre) long corridor along the east margin of the Jersey Mine that is prospective for lead and zinc mineralization. The prospective corridor remains open to the south and east suggesting potential for large extensions to the historic Jersey Zinc Mine. (See News Releases of March 13 and March 27, 2008).
Significant lead, zinc and silver intersections from the five drill holes are given in the following table:
All dimensions and core lengths are recorded in feet in order that results are compatible with the historic mine grid and the existing 5 databases of 5,600 drill holes. Convert feet to metres by multiplying by 0.304.
The tungsten mineralization intersected in drill hole JS07-53 is situated 2,800 feet south and along strike from hole JS07-25 which intersected 0.65% WO3 over a core length of 14.2 feet. The intersections show a 3,200 foot long, north-south, corridor situated south of the historic East Dodger Tungsten Mine that has potential to host important tungsten mineralization.
Drill hole JS07-60 lies 2,500 feet west of the East Dodger Molybdenum Zone and may represent the western end of this recently identified molybdenum zone.
Assays are pending for a further 12 underground drill holes recently completed on the East Dodger Molybdenum Zone. In June and July 2007 underground drilling on the East Dodger Zone intersected important molybdenum mineralization over widths ranging from 160.00 to 548.0 feet. Intersections included 0.21% molybdenum sulphide (MoS2) over a core length of 160.0 feet, 0.12% MoS2 over 311.0 feet, 0.10% MoS2 over 548.0 feet and 0.18% MoS2 over 90.0 feet. The holes also intersected several higher-grade sections that included 0.28% MoS2 over a core length of 79.9 feet, 0.41% MoS2 over 60.0 feet, 0.23% MoS2 over 43.0 feet and 1.81% MoS2 over 9.9 feet.
