Sultan Minerals Resumes Drilling on Molybdenum & Tungsten Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 9, 2005) - Sultan Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SUL) is pleased to announce that it has signed a diamond drill contract with Advanced Drilling Ltd. of Surrey, BC. to complete a minimum of 1,000 metres of underground diamond drilling on Sultan's 100% owned Jersey-Emerald molybdenum and tungsten property, located near the community of Salmo in southeastern BC. Drilling will commence immediately on the East Dodger Zone of the Emerald Tungsten Mine where sizeable molybdenum and tungsten deposits were intersected in two initial holes completed in July (please see News Release of August 2, 2005).

Drilling will focus on a recently identified zone of molybdenum mineralization intersected in drill hole 2, which assayed 0.22% MoS2 over its entire 192 foot length, including 5.19% MoS2 over a 3.7 foot wide intersection near the bottom of the hole. The program will attempt to define the north, east and south margins of the deposit, establish grade trends and determine the orientation of the high-grade molybdenum mineralization intersected in drill hole 2.

An underground mapping program is being carried out in the East Dodger section of the mine in conjunction with the diamond drill program. Mapping will focus on determining the trend and continuity of molybdenum mineralization exposed in a network of underground workings.

Mr. Ed Lawrence, P.Eng., is managing the underground exploration program. Perry Grunenberg, P.Geo., of P&L Geological Services of Lac Le Jeune, BC, is the Company's project supervisor and "Qualified Person" for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101, "Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects".
