Sienna commences exploration program, Marathon North Platinum-Palladium Project

Aug 18, 2021

Sienna Resources Inc. has announced that a second phase of surface exploration work has begun on their Marathon North Platinum-Palladium Property in Northern Ontario, directly bordering Generation Mining Ltd.'s Marathon palladium project. This Phase 2 program, which will include geological mapping, prospecting, and sampling, follows up on the results from the first phase of surface exploration completed in late 2020 (see Company news release dated October 27, 2020) which identified a number of prospective locations with promising geology and minor sulphide mineralization.

Jason Gigliotti, President of Sienna Resources Inc., stated, "We are very pleased to now be underway on the Marathon North Platinum-Palladium Property in Ontario. This area is a world-class PGM region, and we are looking forward to what the next phase of operations will bring. We are also awaiting our drill results from the Bleka Gold Project in Norway and are now underway with our exploration program at our Kuusamo PGE Project in Finland. Also, a very significant development occurred yesterday in the Clayton Valley of Nevada, where Pure Energy Minerals Ltd. partner Schlumberger New Energy has received approval from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for a plan of operations covering the construction and operation of a pilot plant at Pure Energy's Clayton Valley, Nevada, lithium brine project. This project directly borders Sienna, and in fact Sienna's property lies directly inside of the Pure Energy land and is located in the deepest part of this basin. Clearly there are multiple projects that give Sienna shareholders potential for growth in the near and long term."
