Sultan Minerals Acquires Mineral Claims Near Gibraltar Porphyry Copper Mine
|May 13, 2010, Vancouver, BC - Sultan Minerals Inc. (SUL--TSX Venture) ("Sultan") is pleased to announce that it has staked 570 hectares of mineral tenures adjacent to the Gibraltar Porphyry Copper-Molybdenum Mine in south central British Columbia, Canada.|
The road accessible property is located just 1,500 metres west of the Gibraltar Copper-Molybdenum Mine approximately 40 kilometres north of the community of Williams Lake BC. The Gibraltar mine is the second largest porphyry copper mine in BC. Production commenced in 1972 and to date it has been reported that 350 million tonnes of ore have been mined and milled giving 2.1 billion pounds of copper and 22.0 million pounds of molybdenum. Proven and probable reserves are currently 470 million tons grading 0.315% copper and 0.008% molybdenum.
Sultan's adjacent property overlies the west margin of the Granite Mountain pluton, which is host to the Gibraltar orebodies. The property has had little previous exploration. The claims were acquired as part of Sultan's ongoing program of acquiring underexplored properties in proven mining camps.
Sultan has contracted Peter E. Walcott & Associates to review the property and make recommendations for a geophysical survey that will investigate the property's potential for porphyry copper-molybdenum mineralization.
