Sultan Minerals Presents New Corporate Video and Publication of “Jewel of The Kootenays-The Emerald Mine”
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2008) - Sultan Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SUL)(FRANKFURT:RZN) ("Sultan") is pleased to announce that a new corporate video titled "Operation Headstart" has been completed and is available for viewing on Sultan's website at www.sultanminerals.com. The video details Sultan's Jersey Emerald Property and Kena Gold Property providing in depth video footage of the existing infrastructure and current exploration programs. The video also provides a site visit and an interview with Mr. Perry Grunenberg, Senior Geologist and Qualified Person for the Jersey Emerald Project. The Jersey Emerald was historically Canada's second largest tungsten mine and British Columbia's second largest lead-zinc mine. Sultan is currently awaiting assays for 12 recently completed surface drill holes on the East Emerald Tungsten Zone and is awaiting a resource estimate update expected later this year.
A compelling new book entitled "Jewel of the Kootenays - The Emerald Mine" by author Larry G. Jacobsen has just become available. This wonderful book provides a glimpse into mining and the lives of people in a British Columbia mining town more than half a century ago. The Emerald Mine, part of Sultan's Jersey Emerald Property, was located near the town of Salmo, in the West Kootenay area of southern BC. Life in a company town evokes a picture of isolation, deprivation and hardship, but from the many personal accounts, the reader will learn that this mine was very different. The book is carefully researched and richly illustrated with hundreds of photographs, diagrams and maps. It includes the stories gleaned from the author's interviews with 100 of the mine's workers and their families. The book also includes detailed descriptions of the mine's operations and innovations at the time. Mr. Jacobsen has extensive knowledge about mining and company mining towns. He worked as a miner for 13 years at a number of mines in British Columbia, including the Emerald Mine. The book is available through:
Salmo Arts & Museum Society
100 - 4th Street, Salmo, BC, V0G 1Z0 or
