No Easements for Trelawney in Connection With Côté Gold Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 11, 2014) - Sanatana Resources Inc. ("Sanatana" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:STA) is pleased to announce that Trelawney Mining and Exploration Inc. ("Trelawney"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of IAMGOLD Corporation, has withdrawn its easement application in connection with the Côté Gold Project. If the parties are unable to agree on costs then Sanatana and Trelawney will make written submissions to the Ontario Mining and Lands Commissioner (the "MLC") on or before December 2, 2014 and December 9, 2014 respectively.

For further details on the Côté Gold Project easement dispute see Sanatana's news release dated September 16, 2014. A copy of MLC order with respect to the discontinuance will be posted to Sanatana's website (www.sanatanaresources.com) under the section entitled "Easement Dispute".

Peter Miles, Chief Executive Officer of Sanatana stated: "Our position has always been that Trelawney's easement application was without merit. We believe that Trelawney could not satisfy the necessary elements to obtain the easements that it was seeking for its Côté Gold Project. We expect to make an application to recover significant costs from Trelawney in connection with its withdrawn application."
