Sanatana Announces Exploration Drilling Results on the Clam Lake Property, Including 5.0 Metres @ 63.2 g/t Au From 143.0 Metres

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- Sanatana Resources Inc. ("Sanatana" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:STA) has received a report from Trelawney Mining and Exploration Inc. ("Trelawney"), a wholly owned subsidiary of IAMGOLD Corporation, entitled "Report on Exploration Activities on Clam Lake Property - 1st Quarter 2014". The report summarizes the results from exploration activities conducted on the Clam Lake Property by Trelawney received during the period from January 1 to March 31, 2014, including a mineralized interval from one drill hole grading 63.2 g/t Au over 5.0 metres from a down hole depth of 143.0 metres. A description of the Clam Lake Property along with a summary of the exploration results are summarized below.

Description of the Clam Lake Property

The Clam Lake Property consists of unpatented mining claims 4240522, 4241016 and 4220425 situated in Yeo and Chester townships, Ontario. The Clam Lake Property is held under the terms of a Mining Claim Acquisition Agreement (the "Acquisition Agreement") pursuant to which Trelawney holds a direct 80% interest. The remaining 20% undivided legal and beneficial interest in the Clam Lake Property (the "20% Interest") forms part of the Watershed Property and is held for the benefit of Sanatana and Trelawney Augen Acquisition Corp. ("TAAC'") pursuant to the option and joint venture agreement between Sanatana and TAAC dated February 14, 2011.

The 20% Interest is identified as a "carried interest" under the Acquisition Agreement and is defined to mean that until completion of a positive prefeasibility study, all costs and expenses of the exploration programs, preparation and filing of assessment reports and other obligations relating to the Clam Lake Property are the sole and exclusive obligation and liability of Trelawney and Sanatana will not have any obligation or liability in respect thereof.

Summary of the Exploration Results

Prospect scale mapping, rock sampling and drilling work completed in late 2013 focused on three priority target areas: the Baxter trend, the South IP Anomaly and the Hopkins Trend. Three drill holes (total of 892.5m) were completed to test the targets at depth and assay results from sampling of the drill core were recently received (see below tables and map).

(i)Note - Drill hole collar locations are derived from maps Trelawney provided to the Company and are approximate only.

The highlight of the program was hole CLM13-02 which intersected a shear zone carrying disseminated to stringer sulphide mineralization from 139.5 to 148m (8.5m core interval), including a 3.0m interval of quartz veining and silicification containing some visible gold. This zone returned an intersection of 63.2 g/t Au / 5.0m (uncut), or 16.6 g/t Au over 5.0m (capped at 25g/t Au). The intersection occurs at a vertical depth of approximately 100m and the true width is estimated at 2.5 metres.

NSR = No Significant Results.

Peter Miles, Chief Executive Officer of Sanatana stated: "We congratulate Trelawney for completing an encouraging drill program on the Clam Lake Property. The gold tenor and shallow depth of the mineralized intersection speaks to the substantial upside potential for new discoveries within the relatively under-explored Cote Gold District."

Sanatana previously drilled similar intersections of sheared and silicified sulphide mineralized zones with varying gold grades and visible gold within 500 m east and west of hole CLM13-02 on mining claims 3011820, 3017672 and 3018412 of the Watershed Property (see Sanatana's news releases dated June 19, 2012; June 20, 2012 and January 10, 2013).

Trelawney further reported that it is conducting a study of the geological structure and alteration as well as the geophysical signature of the mineralized intersection to help design a follow up drill program. A work permit covering the entire Clam Lake Property is already in place to allow Trelawney to conduct further exploration drilling, especially covering an IP Chargeability anomaly located immediately west of the drill intersection in hole CLM12-02.

About the Company

Sanatana Resources Inc. is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company focused on its Watershed property in Ontario. Sanatana entered into an option and joint venture agreement with Trelawney Augen Acquisition Corp. (formerly Augen Gold Corp.) ("TAAC") which grants Sanatana an option to acquire up to 51% of the Watershed Property consisting of 46 mining claims totalling approximately 19,006 acres and located within the townships of Yeo, Chester, Neveille and Benneweis. As at November 28, 2012, Sanatana exercised its first option and is the legal and beneficial owner of 50% of the Watershed Property. Sanatana has until March 23, 2016, to decide whether to exercise its right to acquire a further 1% in the Watershed Property.

In June 2012, IAMGOLD Corporation completed its acquisition of Trelawney Mining and Exploration Inc. and became the sole indirect shareholders of TAAC. In 2013, Sanatana expanded the Watershed Property by acquiring, for the sole benefit of Sanatana and TAAC, a 20% interest in three additional mining claims located in Yeo and Chester Townships, Ontario. In addition to the Watershed Property, Sanatana also has mineral exploration property in Saskatchewan. With an experienced management team and board of directors, the Company has the ability required to identify, develop and fund economic mineral properties. Sanatana is based in Vancouver and is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX VENTURE:STA).
