Sultan Minerals Resumes Drilling High Grade Gold Target on the Kena Property, BC

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 13, 2010) - Sultan Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SUL)(FRANKFURT:RZN) ("Sultan") is pleased to report continued drilling at its 100%-owned, 8,000 hectare, Kena Gold-Copper Property in British Columbia. This next round of drilling, scheduled to commence on December 13, 2010, is a continuation of the 2010 drill program. New targets developed from re-modeling of all drill holes within the Gold Mountain zone will be tested.

On October 18, 2010, Sultan released results from the 2010 fall drilling program, with average gold grades for 14 intersections within a 5.65 kilometres long, deep seated mineralized structure. These intersections averaged 15.65 g/t over a minimum 2.00 metre mining width. Sultan is very pleased with the continuous nature of the gold mineralization along this deep-seated structural corridor. The prior drill holes all lie along the same northwest-southeast trending structure lying to the west of the previously reported Gold Mountain and Kena Gold Zone deposits (for resource estimate see News Release dated June 7, 2004). On November 4, 2010, Sultan released results from hole 10HG-05 that show a broad low grade gold halo averaging 1.33 g/t gold over 25.12 metres including a high grade intersection of 6.19 g/t gold over 2.4 metres.

The focus of this new drilling is to further test dyke structures interpreted to parallel high grade shoots within the larger envelopes of lower grade gold mineralization. A new interpretation based on Sultan's consultant geologist's work using Surpac 3-D modeling of bedrock geology, structure, and mineralized zones, was developed from all drill holes and trenching completed to date. The drilling is designed to test a new mineralizing structural orientation, as well as expand and further define the known resource.
