Sultan Minerals Retains John Bishop for Jersey-Emerald, Tungsten-Molybdenum-Lead-Zinc, Project in B.C.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 27, 2007) - Sultan Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SUL)(FRANKFURT:RNZ) ("Sultan") is pleased to announce that it has retained the services of former stope geologist, Mr. John D. Bishop of Salmo, B.C., at its Jersey-Emerald project in southeastern British Columbia. Mr. Bishop will assist the company in determining diamond drill targets in the recently discovered Dodger Molybdenum Zone at this former tungsten-lead-zinc producer.

Mr. Bishop worked for many years as a mine surveyor and later as a geologist at the Jersey Lead-Zinc Mine and the adjacent Emerald Tungsten Mine. Both mines were operated by Canex, a subsidiary of Placer Dome, until the 1970's when they closed due to low metal prices. Mr. Bishop will also assist in identifying and evaluating extensions of the historic zinc ore zones that were not mined, and which may be economic with present metal pricing.

John Bishop's experience as a mine surveyor, plus his five years of operational experience as a geologist in the zinc and tungsten mines, makes him a valuable member of our team. His ability to comprehend the complex historic mining plans, and his past knowledge of the mine workings will be very helpful in determining safe and suitable diamond drill locations for testing these extension areas.

Mr. Ed Lawrence, P.Eng., former Manager of the Jersey and Emerald Mines, is managing an ongoing exploration drill program designed to expand the molybdenum and tungsten zones reported in the Initial Resource Estimate completed in November 2006. Mr. Perry Grunenberg, P.Geo., of PBG Geoscience of Kamloops, B.C., is Sultan's project supervisor and "Qualified Person" for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101, "Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects".
