Sultan Minerals Inc SUL:CA announced results from its Kena Property in southeastern BC. Assay highlights include 66.83 g/t gold over 2 metres, 7.48 g/t over 2 metres (including 14.66 g/t over 1 metre), 34.44 g/t over 2.03 metres, 15.56 g/t over 2 metres, 21.11 g/t over 2 metres (including 40.66 g/t over 1 metre) and 12.63 g/t over 2 metres.
Marc Lee of Investor and Corporate Communications told ResourceClips.com, “There has been extensive work done on the property before—we had a joint venture with Kinross several years ago—and from that we managed to come out with a resource of almost 750,000 ounces gold at about 1 g/t in all categories. It’s a large deposit that’s close to surface, so it is open-pittable.
“With the recent news release, we’ve confirmed that there’s a new high-grade corridor which lies a little to the west of where we’ve drilled before. The corridor is about two metres in width with an average of about 15 g/t gold. It looks exciting for us because not only do we have a large, low-grade deposit that’s open-pittable, we also have a high-grade zone. So we’re quite pleased with the results. And we’ve got a couple of drill holes left to go. A couple of them are in a copper zone just to the south of the gold zone which could be quite interesting as well. We had geologist Jim Oliver do a structural mapping report for us last year, and he suggested that there is potential for a large copper-porphyry style deposit there as well.
“Moving forward, we’re looking to do more exploration and we’re also looking for possible joint-venture partners to help develop the property,” Lee concluded. “It’s a fairly large property, and the potential there is very good for a multimillion-ounce deposit.”
