We report on a measurement of the differential and total cross sections of inclusive production of Ξ* resonances in ∑- - nucleus collisions at 345 GeV/c. The cross section for inclusive Ξ01530 production is about a factor of 5 below that of Ξ-1320 hyperons. The products of cross section and branching ratio for the observed channels Ξ01690 → Ξ- π+ Ξ-1820 → Ξ01530π- and Ξ-1950 → Ξ01530 π- are lower by yet another order of magnitude. The Ξ-1820 and Ξ-1950 resonances show significantly harder xF and pt distributions than Ξ- and Ξ01530 hyperons. A comparison of the xF-distribution to PYTHIA and QGSM predictions provides only a partial agreement.
