Mining Commissioner Orders Trelawney to File Extensive Suite of Documents in Connection With Cote Gold Project Easement Application

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/14 -- Sanatana Resources Inc. ("Sanatana" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: STA) announces that the Ontario Mining and Lands Commissioner released its decision with respect to Sanatana's preliminary motion of March 11, 2014. While the tribunal did not dismiss Trelawney Mining and Exploration Inc.'s ("Trelawney") easement application, the tribunal did order that Trelawney is required to produce and file an extensive suite of documents in support of its application. A summary of the order is set forth below and the full text of both the order and the reasons of the tribunal will be made available on Sanatana's website at http://www.sanatanaresources.com.

Peter Miles, Chief Executive Officer of Sanatana stated: "We made this motion in part to compel Trelawney to file the required documents to enable us to defend the easement application. In its reasons for the order, the tribunal stated that it 'is of the view that Trelawney is hesitant to provide the information either because it does not yet exist or because it fears divulging something that might be used by Sanatana to its advantage.' While we do not know Trelawney's motive for failing to provide the required information, we do applaud the tribunal's order which reiterates our position that if Trelawney wants to move the easement application to a hearing, then it is required to produce and file the information required by the Mining Act (Ontario)."

Mr. Miles further stated: "We have a number of objections to Trelawney's easement application and once the required information is produced and filed, we look forward to presenting our position to the tribunal."

Summary of the Order

On March 11, 2014, Sanatana made a preliminary motion to the tribunal to set a timetable, compel the production of certain documents and, in the alternative, to dismiss the application on the basis that Trelawney had not filed the documents required under subsection 175(4) of the Mining Act (Ontario). While the tribunal did not dismiss Trelawney's easement application, the tribunal did order that on or before July 8, 2014, Trelawney is required to produce and file the following:


--  "A clear and precise statement listing the rights being applied for and
    how each right is required for or in connection with the proper working
    of a mine. Information related to the exact status of the mine is to be
    provided at the same time. For example, is it built? If not, when will
    it be built? If the answers to these questions depend on the processing
    of feasibility studies, then the tribunal expects information regarding
    the status of any related or relevant study. These are general questions
    and the tribunal expects as much information on this issue as the
    applicant can reasonably provide.

--  Each right is to be listed separately and the corresponding works or
    things for each right applied for are to (be) clearly listed and
    described.

--  Definite and detailed plans and specifications for any proposed dams,
    transmission towers, and any other works or things that Trelawney
    proposes to construct or have constructed or done. For example, where
    the easements pertains to the building of a dam, then plans and
    specifications for the dam are to be provided. The dam's effect on
    watercourses is to be specified, with upstream and downstream impact
    specified as well with potential creation of floodplains delineated and
    drops in water levels indicated.

--  The land or property being affected along with the owner or owners as
    far as they can be ascertained.

--  A map or plan of the locality showing the land and water involved."

The tribunal further ordered that Sanatana has the right to produce and file a response to Trelawney's materials described above on or before August 8, 2014.

The tribunal further authorized Trelawney and any of its engineers, assistants or other employees, to enter on the Watershed Property to make such examinations and to take such measurements as may be necessary for the production of the information required by the order.

Finally, the tribunal ordered that no costs be awarded to either party in connection with the motion.

Once the above information is produced and filed, Sanatana and Trelawney may coordinate with the tribunal with respect to setting down a hearing date.
