Sanatana Completes Acquisition of the Tirua Project and Provides Exploration Update
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sanatana Resources Inc. (“Sanatana” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide this update on the Company’s activities.
Sanatana has received TSX Venture Exchange approval of the acquisition of the Tirua Project. Mr. Peter Miles, CEO, states “We are pleased that the TSX Venture Exchange has approved the Tirua acquisition and with completion of the transaction, Sanatana will now be able to accelerate its exploration plans.”During the past six months Sanatana has conducted both a field program and review of the Tirua Project that has enhanced the geological understanding of the mineralization of the Kolo Caldera. A total of 413 soil samples were taken, along with a comprehensive analysis of historical data and drill core that were included in the acquisition of the Tirua Project.The first results from the ongoing soil sampling program, based on the exploration concepts developed by Sanatana from the analysis of 4,988 historical soil samples along with the reinterpretation of the airborne magnetic data, have been received. The sampling reveals an As, Sb, Mo anomaly in the southern part of the project above a prominent unexplored magnetic anomaly. This prospective area also has sericite, chlorite and phyillic alteration in the rare outcrops found in the local streams.Infill soil samples were also taken from the SW edge of the Dilma lithocap porphyry zone (see the Company’s news release of April 16, 2019) which returned anomalous Au associated with As which constitutes a coherent Au epithermal anomaly >50ppb, approximately 300m by 700m in size. Alteration mapping and trenching are planned in future exploration programs to further develop this new area.Sanatana will post an updated presentation reflecting the newly acquired data and most recent geological interpretation to its website shortly.Mr. Buddy Doyle, President, states “Our recent exploration combined with my detailed review of historical data has reinforced my interpretation of the prospectivity of the Tirua Project and we see strong potential for epithermal gold, porphyry copper/gold and associated copper oxide mineralization. I look forward to future exploration on the Tirua Project.”Under the terms of the prospecting agreement for the Tirua Project, Sanatana is required to issue 24,200,000 common shares of the Company and issue up to a further 14,800,000 common shares if minimum resources are established pursuant to a technical report prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.
