Sultan Minerals Commences Drilling At Kena
|Sultan Minerals Inc. (SUL-TSX Venture) is pleased to announce that a 1500 metre diamond-drill program has commenced on its Kena Property located in the Kootenay District of British Columbia. Westgate Diamond Drilling of Salmo, BC has been contracted for the drilling. The drill program will focus on expanding gold mineralization along the recently identified gold bearing structural corridor on Gold Mountain and on the historic Kena Gold Zone.|
The Kena Gold Zone was initially recognized in 1888 when G.M. Dawson of the Geological Survey of Canada described it as a large but low-grade gold zone with practically unlimited tonnage potential. In the 1980's the zone was investigated with 40 diamond drill holes put in by several companies in search of high-grade mineralization. Much of this drill core has been re-sampled by Sultan and assay values confirm a widespread zone of gold mineralization (see News Release dated September 29, 2000). An in-house modeling program has identified 14 locations within the Kena Gold Zone that require additional drilling of short holes prior to having an independent qualified person begin resource calculations.
The planned program also calls for the completion of six diamond drill holes along the structural corridor identified by an airborne geophysical survey in late 2002. The recently completed trenching and mapping programs have located the structure believed responsible for the gold mineralization along this corridor. The planned drill holes are designed to expand and test the strike and depth continuity of high-grade gold mineralization identified by previous drilling in 4 locations along this corridor (see News Release dated June 18, 2003).
Drilling of the Kena Gold Zone is now underway and is expected to be completed in about 4 weeks.
