Sultan Minerals Expands Molybdenum Zone on its Jersey-Emerald Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 13, 2005) - Sultan Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SUL) is pleased to announce that it has received final assays for holes 4, 5, and 6 (JM05-04, JM05-05 and JM05-06) of its underground drilling program on its Jersey-Emerald Molybdenum Property, in the Salmo area of British Columbia. The three underground holes were step out holes from previously announced hole 2 which assayed 0.22% MoS2 over its entire 192 foot length, and hole 3 which averaged 0.11% MoS2 over 495 feet (please see News Releases of August 2 and October 3, 2005).

The results of these three drill holes are extremely encouraging. They confirm the results of the previous three holes and demonstrate that the molybdenum rich body has bulk tonnage potential. The molybdenum rich body has now been shown to extend 650 feet north-south, 400 feet east-west and to a depth of 300 feet and remains open in all directions.

Assays for holes 4, 5 and 6 and previously reported holes 1 through 3 are tabled below.

Note 1: All dimensions and core lengths are recorded in feet in order
that results are compatible with the historic mine grid and the
existing 4,600 drill hole database.
Note 2: MoS2 grades are calculated from the Mo assays shown in
column 9.


Hole 4 was drilled upwards at +5 degrees along an azimuth of 067 degrees above hole 3. The hole passed above the top of the favourable host granite and entered the overlying tungsten rich skarn unit. Hole 4 carried 0.06% MoS2 over 87 feet including 6.5 feet of 0.36% MoS2. In the tungsten skarn formation the hole assayed 0.41% WO3 (tungsten) over a 6 foot core length from 250 to 256 feet.

Hole 5 was drilled to the north of holes 2 and 3 along an azimuth of 045 degrees with a dip of -20 degrees. This hole assayed 0.05% MoS2 over its entire 438 foot length including a 137 foot intersection from 29 to 166 feet that averaged 0.13% MoS2. The hole carried several high-grade intersections including 0.42% MoS2 over 18.0 feet and 0.93% MoS2 over 3.0 feet.

Hole 6 was drilled upwards at +5 degrees along an azimuth of 045 degrees above hole 5. The hole passed above the top of the favourable host granite and entered the overlying tungsten rich skarn unit. Hole 6 carried 0.08% MoS2 over 113 feet including 18 feet of 0.31% MoS2 and 4 feet of 1.03% MoS2.

Sultan is extremely pleased with the results of the six diamond drill holes received to date. Assays for holes 7 through 12 are expected within the next 10 days and will be released as they are received.
