Sienna Resources Inc. (TSXV: SIE) (“Sienna” or the “Firm”) is happy to supply an exploration replace for its Kuusamo PGE-Cu-Ni Mission (the “Mission” or the “Property” or “Kuusamo”), situated over the massive Syöte Block and smaller Pirivaara Block, the southernmost intrusions that comprise the Koillismaa Layered Igneous Advanced (“KLIC”), in north-central Finland. The Mission is situated about 19 km south of Palladium One Mining’s LK Mission, overlaying two of the northern blocks inside the KLIC, who’re focusing on basal Contact-Kind PGE-Cu-Ni sulphide mineralization.
The KLIC is a part of a collection of Paleoproterozoic continental rift-related intrusions that are extremely potential for PGE-Cu-Ni deposits such because the close by Suhanko (Arctic Platinum Oy) deposit situated about 100 km northwest of the Mission. Suhanko hosts SAMREC Code Compliant Measured and Indicated assets of 5.4 million ounces of palladium grading 1.44 g/t Pd and 1.3 million ounces of platinum grading 0.35 g/t Pt at a cut-off of 1.0 g/t Pt+Pd+Au, in addition to Inferred Sources of 4.4 million ounces of palladium grading 1.50 g/t Pd and 1.1 million ounces of platinum grading 0.38 g/t Pt (www.suhanko.com). Administration cautions that previous outcomes or discoveries on properties in proximity to Sienna could not essentially be indicative to the presence of mineralization on the Firm’s properties.
The extremely potential Kuusamo Mission has the potential to host comparable kinds of basal PGE-Cu-Ni mineralization (Contact-Kind) discovered on the LK Mission and related to the basal contact of the Syöte Block. Historic mapping and diamond drilling at Kuusamo has outlined an roughly 23 km lengthy basal contact horizon alongside inside the Syöte Block which is potential for Contact-Kind PGE-Cu-Ni sulphide mineralization.
Sienna just lately accomplished orientation soil surveys (whole of 4 sections) over the interpreted contact area of the Syöte and Pirivaara blocks (Determine 1). The soil samples, which focused the B-horizon within the soil profile, have been analysed utilizing partial leach strategies to establish cell metals interpreted to be derived from native sulphide-rich supply rocks. In three of the 4 take a look at sections, the focused geologic horizon (contact area) confirmed anomalies in a mix of vector components together with palladium, copper, nickel, and gold. Background concentrations for the vector components have been established at 0.09 ppb Pd, 400 ppb Cu, 70 ppb Ni, and 0.05 ppb Au. The decrease restrict of detection (“LLD”) for these components are 0.05 ppb Pd, 1 ppb Cu, 1 ppb Ni, and 0.02 ppb Au.
Determine 1. Location of soil sampling sections inside the Syöte and Pirivaara blocks, Finland.
To view an enhanced model of Determine 1, please go to:
Anomalous soil samples returned concentrations within the vector components that ranged from LLD to 0.21 ppb Pd, 109 to 783 ppb Cu, and 33 to 137 ppb Ni, and LLD to 0.16 ppb Au in part Website #1 (Determine 1 – panel A), from LLD to 0.29 ppb Pd, 121 to 846 ppb Cu, 68 to 236 ppb Ni, and LLD to 0.57 ppb Au in part Website #3 S1 (Determine 1 – panels B and C), from LLD to 0.31 ppb Pd, 109 to 3190 ppb Cu, 42 to 1120 ppb Ni, and LLD to 0.71 ppb Au in part Website #3 S2 (Determine 1 – panels B and C), with anomalies positioned at or close to the focused basal models of the 2 KLIC blocks. Outcomes from part Website #2 have been largely LLD or under the decided background concentrations.
Outcomes from the orientation soil sampling program mirror a extremely encouraging “proof of idea” for this fast and cheap sampling method, and gives the arrogance for this system for use to display bigger goal areas inside the Mission, in a extremely cost-effective method.
Probably the most encouraging side of the sampling program have been the significantly sturdy anomalies seen within the southernmost sampling traces within the Pirivaara Block (Determine 1). The Pirivaara Block is an outlying publicity of the KLIC that crops out from beneath glacial cowl within the southeastern portion of the Mission. Little is understood about this specific publicity of the KLIC, however the Sienna soil sampling outcomes reveals proof of sturdy anomalism in copper and nickel (Determine 1 – panel C), and palladium and gold (Determine 1 – panel B). Because of these constructive indications, this space, together with the basal contact within the Syöte Block, might be prioritized for additional work.
Plans for continued exploration on the Kuusamo venture embody broader sampling packages utilizing the identical soil sampling strategies employed on this preliminary section of sampling, in addition to geophysical surveys (Induced Polarization or “IP” and detailed floor magnetics) focusing on the possible basal parts of the intrusive blocks. The intention of the broader exploration packages might be to establish the very best precedence drill targets on the Mission.
Jason Gigliotti, President of Sienna Resources acknowledged, “We’re more than happy and excited relating to the info gathered thus far in Finland. The basal contact is 23 km lengthy and is the first goal for this venture, exhibiting comparable traits and geological orientation because the bordering venture of Palladium One Mining. We’re very inspired at this stage, and are extremely motivated to get the subsequent section underway. Not solely is Sienna energetic in Finland, however we’re underway in Norway on our Bleka Gold Mission and revaluating plans in Clayton Valley, Nevada on our Clayton Valley Deep Basin Lithium Mission, that lies within the deepest part of the brine the place Pure Vitality Minerals is at the moment drilling. The Clayton Valley is residence to Albemarle’s Silver Peak Lithium brine operation which is the one producing lithium brine deposit within the USA. Administration may be very optimistic in regards to the prospects of 2021 as the corporate may have a number of photographs on objective for fulfillment.”

Soil samples have been submitted for analyses at ALS Scandinavia AB (ALS World) whose laboratories are accredited by SWEDAC for a number of analytical strategies and whose accreditation implies their compliance with the worldwide normal ISO 17025 and ISO 9001:2000. The ALS World Ionic Leach assay technique identifies anomalous cell metallic ions which can have been mobilized and trapped inside the soil profile, giving good indications of mineralized our bodies below deep cowl.
