Sultan Minerals Engages Wardrop Engineering to Conduct Environmental Study on Jersey-Emerald Project
Wednesday, July 4th, 2007
Sultan Minerals Inc. is pleased to announce that it has engaged Wardrop Engineering to undertake an environmental baseline study on the Company’s 100% owned Jersey-Emerald project located in British Columbia. Sultan is aggressively advancing the development of the Jersey-Emerald project with the objective of re-opening the historic tungsten and lead-zinc producing mine, which was formerly owned and operated by Placer Dome.
The environmental assessment will take approximately 14 months to complete and will primarily cover water quality data and biological sampling including fish, invertebrates and habitat description. In conjunction with this environmental baseline study Wardrop are supervising metallurgical studies that are currently underway on the tungsten and molybdenum mineralization.
Mr. Arthur G. Troup, President and CEO, stated, “We are very focused on bringing the Jersey-Emerald Mine back into production as quickly as possible. To date in 2007, we have completed a 14,000-foot drill program designed to expand the known Dodger molybdenum and tungsten zones at the Jersey-Emerald Property (See Press Releases of April 25, 2007 and June 6, 2007). In May we completed our NI 43-101 Scoping Study (Preliminary Economic Assessment, see Press Release of May 23, 2007) and we successfully completed a $3.6 million financing that was oversubscribed. By engaging Wardrop Engineering to undertake the environmental baseline studies at this point in the development of the project, Sultan expects to expedite the production permitting stage for the property.”
Wardrop is a well-known Canadian Engineering Firm with ISO 9001:2000 certification (ISO certification is an international recognition of best practice, commitment to quality and consistency in products and services).
