Sienna Gold Inc: Further Surface Sampling Identifies High Grade Gold and Silver Mineralization; 2011-2012 Drill Campaign Commences on the Igor Property

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 30, 2011) - Sienna Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SGP) (BVLAC:SGP) is pleased to announce the results of further surface sampling along the Callanquitas Structure and elsewhere on the Company's Igor project in Peru. The samples extend the outcrop of known mineralization at Callanquitas which confirms the high grade gold and silver potential of the structure.

Sampling Assay Results

A total of 63 samples were collected along the southern extension of the Callanquitas Structure, and from previously unsampled locations on the northern flank of the Igor anticline. Of these 43 samples contained more than 0.5 grams/ton (g/t) gold of which 37 were equal to, or greater than, 1 g/t gold. Furthermore 26 samples contained more than 31 g/t silver.

Most significant samples:

Sample No Gold g/t Silver g/t
I237836 59.3 39.3
I237837 9.64 39.0
I237829 8.91 7.0
I237789 8.00 351.0
1237812 2.38 441.0

Dr. Warren Pratt, consulting geologist and director of Sienna Gold Inc. comments, 'We are very pleased with these sample results. They indicate that the Callanquitas Structure continues to the south. The results from the northern flank of the Igor anticline have given us further drill targets in an area that has previously seen little exploration activity".

The areas highlighted by the recent sampling are shown in the following figures together with gold results for all previous sampling at Igor.

The 2011-2012 Drill Campaign

Drilling started on the Igor Project on the 2nd of November, 2011. The first drill rig, which is currently on the third drill hole, was recently joined by a second rig. Sienna is pleased to be working with AK Drilling at Igor. The company provided an exemplary service during the previous campaign.

The current drill campaign is focused on the Callanquitas, Domo, and Tesores sectors and has three main objectives:

- Resource definition along the 900 metres (m) strike length of the Callanquitas Structure. The program involves drilling along east-west orientated sections approximately every 100 m. Initially there will be two to three holes per section.

- Exploration drilling to extend the Callanquitas Structure. The second rig will start drilling on east-west sections to the south of Hole CA-11- 06, the southernmost intersection on the Structure. This 'step-out' drilling will be every 100 m and, if mineralization is encountered, a further two holes per section will be added. This will allow new mineralization to be included in resource definition.

- A further 3,500 meters will be drilled in the Domo and Tesores area to further define the current resource.

The goal of the current campaign is to complete approximately 10 000 m of drilling at Callanquitas and define an NI 43-101-compliant resource by the end of the 3rd Quarter 2012.

The Callanquitas Structure, previously drilled holes, and planned sections are shown on the map on the Sienna Gold website.
