Sultan Minerals Commences 2002 Exploration On Kena Gold Property
|Sultan Minerals Inc. (SUL-TSX Venture) is pleased to report that it has now commenced its summer exploration program on the Kena Property, located north of Ymir in southeastern BC. This exploration program will consist of two simultaneously conducted programs. One program will concentrate on further defining gold mineralization throughout the new Gold Mountain Zone by following the southerly trend to the Kena Gold Zone with geophysics, trenching and drilling. The second program is designed to test several additional gold targets located on recently acquired claims to the north and west of the Gold Mountain Zone with geochemistry, geophysics, trenching and drilling |
In 2001, 6,700 metres of diamond drilling was completed on the Gold Mountain Zone. Drill results showed excellent widths of gold mineralization in a bulk tonnage target that is geologically controlled. The 2002 program will target a strong geophysical anomaly that encompasses the Gold Mountain Zone and extends 2,500 metres to the south where it merges with favorable results from historic drilling in the Kena Gold Zone.
The new claim blocks (which are now part of the Kena Property) include the historic Silver King Mine, Starlight Mine, Great Western, Tough Nut and Cariboo prospects -- all of which have historically documented zones of gold mineralization. These prospects were all discovered circa 1900, and have had intermittent work programs of varying types throughout the 1900s. Sultan's geologists are currently compiling all of the historic data on this very strategic land package in order to outline areas requiring infill geological, geochemical or geophysical work and to define drill targets.
Currently, on the Gold Mountain Zone, line cutting is being conducted for expanded geophysical surveys and control points for grids, drill holes, etc are being established via GPS survey. Ground-work in preparation for drilling will be completed in approximately three weeks at which time the planned trenching and diamond drill program will commence.
