Sultan Minerals To Attend China Mining Convention

 Sultan Minerals Inc. (SUL-TSX-Venture) ("Sultan") is pleased to announce plans that it will be in Hong Kong, Beijing and Tianjin, China to participate in the Canadian Mining Investment forums and China Mining Convention from November 7 to 19, 2010.

Sultan will give presentations and attend investor meetings in Hong Kong and Beijing organized by the National Development and Reform Commission and the Government of Canada, together with the Provinces of British Columbia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Saskatchewan, and the Yukon Territory. After the investment forums, the company will attend the China Mining Convention in Tianjin, China. Sultan welcomes all interested parties to visit their booth (A034) at the Convention from November 16 to 18, 2010.

Sultan is actively seeking financing in the form of joint venture partnerships for their Jersey-Emerald and Kena Properties. Both properties are in advance exploration stages and have current National Instrument 43-101 resource estimates. These properties are located within a few kilometres of each other in southeastern British Columbia, in an area of excellent infrastructure including nearby hydro-electric power, gas lines, railroad, paved highways, local work force, and good service and supply centres. As well, Teck Resources Trail lead-zinc smelter is located a half hour drive from the Jersey-Emerald lead-zinc resource.

The Jersey-Emerald is a brown-fields property that was previously mined for tungsten, lead and zinc by Placer Dome Inc. until 1973. Both open pit and underground resources remain within the historic mine workings and along strike and to depth. The underground mine workings remain in excellent condition and were designed to accommodate 25 and 50-ton haul trucks. The following table summarizes the current resource estimates published by Sultan on the Jersey-Emerald Property (authors Giroux and Grunenberg, 2006, 2009, 2010).

In addition to these reported resource numbers, Sultan has recently acquired two adjacent properties with historic (pre-NI43-101) tungsten and lead-zinc resources. Additional diamond drilling is required to bring these resources into current compliance in order to add them to the resource numbers tabulated above.

The Kena Property is an advanced stage exploration property containing gold and copper-gold mineralized zones. An open-pit gold resource estimate was completed in 2004 (Giroux and Dandy) and is summarized in the table below. This resource remains open to depth and along strike in both directions.

In addition to this open-pit resource, diamond drilling by Sultan in 2010 has confirmed a new higher grade mineralized corridor trending for 5.65 kilometres strike that would be amenable to underground mining operation. Drilling to date shows an average gold grade of 15.65 g/t over a 2 metre mining width. This zone is an early stage exploration project and requires additional infill drilling in order to produce a NI43-101 resource estimate.

The Kena Property is also host to a large porphyry copper-gold zone which has had limited drilling. Drill results to date show wide widths of consistent copper equivalent mineralization such as 0.28% copper over 117 metres (see News Release dated September 8, 2010).

Linda Dandy, P.Geo., is the project supervisor and "Qualified Person" for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101, who has reviewed and verified the contents of this news release.
