BRITISH COLUMBIA – The Jersey Emerald project, located 6 km south of Salmo, has returned what owner SULTAN MINERALS of Vancouver calls spectacular assays. The fourth hole assayed 0.10% MoS2 over 176.8 m. Over its entire 2,466.0-m length, it averaged 0.04% MoS2. The hole contained several higher grade sections including 0.28% MoS2 over 24.4 m, 0.23% MoS2 over 13.1 m and 1.81% MoS2 over 3.0 m.
Five other widespread holes tested the lateral limits of the East Dodger moly zone. Mineralization is known to extend over an area of 1,036.3 x 274.3 m.
The Jersey Emerald project includes a former producer. The area was first explored in 1895, with reports of gold, lead, tungsten and molybdenite occurring over the next four decades. The former Emerald tungsten mine was active during the Second World War and again from 1947 to 1973. Tungsten, lead and zinc were produced from five deposits.
Four different types of deposits have been identified in the area. Their details are posted at www.SultanMinerals.com.
