VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 31, 2007) - Sultan Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SUL)(FWB:RZN) ("Sultan" or the "Company") is pleased to report that it has engaged Wardrop Engineering Inc. ("Wardrop") to complete a Scoping Study on its Jersey-Emerald Property in southeastern British Columbia. The Jersey-Emerald property is host to the historic Jersey Lead-Zinc Mine, British Columbia's second largest lead-zinc producer and the former Emerald Tungsten Mine, Canada's second largest tungsten mine.

Wardrop is a well-known Canadian Engineering Firm with ISO 9001:2000 certification (ISO certification is an international recognition of best practice, commitment to quality and consistency in products and services). Wardrop has five Corporate divisions that provide a wide range of integrated services and technological products around the world. The Company has twelve Canadian offices, seven International offices, and more than 1,000 employees worldwide. Wardrop's Project Manager for the Jersey-Emerald scoping study has extensive operations experience in both underground and open pit mining.

The Scoping Study will involve site visits by Wardrop's engineers, and studies of a three dimensional mine model of the historic mine workings. The study will work out a conceptual mine design, determine the potential for underground stoping and work out process design criteria. The study will also involve a site visit by Wardrop's Environmental Engineer in order to complete an environmental review. The Scoping Study is expected to be completed in April 2007 and will assist Sultan in directing the future development of the Jersey-Emerald property.
