Trelawney Reports Exploration Results on Clam Lake Property and Commences A Follow Up Drill Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 26, 2014) - Sanatana Resources Inc. ("Sanatana" or the "Company"): (TSX VENTURE:STA) announces that Trelawney Mining and Exploration Inc. ("Trelwaney"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of IAMGOLD Corporation, has commenced a seven to nine hole drill program (2,000 to 2,400 metres) to follow-up on the high grade intersection (5 metres @ 63.2 g/t Au from 143 metres, uncut and 2.5m true width) and associated IP anomaly reported earlier this year at Clam Lake Property drill hole CLM13-02, as well as to test selected target areas along the Baxter's and Hopkins trends.1 Sanatana currently has a 10% carried interest in the Clam Lake Property and has the right to earn up to a 10.2% carried interest (see: "Description of the Clam Lake Property" below).

Peter Miles, Chief Executive Officer of Sanatana stated: "We are pleased that Trelawney is following up on such an encouraging exploration result that is in close proximity to Sanatana's Watershed Project. This is an important drill program as it has the potential to both enhance our knowledge of the gold mineralization trend as well as the prospectivity immediately surrounding the Côté Gold Project. We look forward to receiving the results of the drill program."

Summary of the Exploration Results

Detailed structural and lithological mapping was completed on two historically stripped outcrops located 225 metres to the south-east of DDH CLM13-02. The purpose was to determine the orientation of principal gold-bearing structures related to the Au-rich deformation zone intersected in this hole and provide vectors to assist in targeting of future drill holes (see map below). Sulfide bearing quartz-carbonate veins trending almost east-west and steeply dipping were sampled and gold assay results are pending. The mapping work also covered a series of six historical pits and trenches located 150 m northwest of the hole CLM13-02. Here samples were collected from an intensely carbonate altered near vertical quartz shear zone striking 136° hosted by variably altered tonalite.

DGI Geosciences Inc. was contracted to conduct structural and physical rock property borehole logging of drill hole CLM13-02 and the results were integrated with the surface IP data and mapping to facilitate targeting subsequent drill holes in the Au-bearing deformation zone. A seven to nine hole 2,000 to 2,400 metre drill program commenced early in August to follow up the high grade intersection reported from drill hole CLM13-02 and associated IP anomaly as well as test selected target areas along the Baxter's and Hopkins trends.
