About Sultan Minerals Inc.: Sultan is a Canadian resource company focused on the exploration and development of its Daylight and Kena gold properties and its historic Jersey Emerald tungsten zinc mine. The properties are all located in southeastern British Columbia, Canada.
Sultan's 8,000 hectare Daylight and Kena gold properties are located 25 km north of the Jersey Mine. Four past producing, high grade, gold mines are located on the Daylight property. Recent exploration has identified three important gold and copper-gold zones. These are:
The historic Jersey zinc mine was British Columbia's second largest zinc mine. The mine closed in 1973 due to low zinc prices. The deposit has a remaining drill indicated resource of 1.9 Mt averaging 6.06% combined lead and zinc and a drill inferred resource of 4.98 Mt averaging 5.32% combined lead and zinc (2010 NI 43-101 Resource Estimate). Recent drilling suggests the deposit extends north beyond the limit of previous exploration.
The historic Emerald tungsten mine was Canada's second largest tungsten producer. The mine presently has a total measured and indicated (M+I) resource of 3.071 Mt averaging 0.341% tungsten (WO3), and an inferred resource of 5.480 Mt averaging 0.273% WO3 (2015 NI 43-101 Resource Estimate). The tungsten mineralization remains open along strike to the north and south.
Sultan's geologists have recommended that bulk sampling programs be carried out to investigate high grade mineralization on the Kena and the Jersey deposits.
