THIS NEWS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, March 23, 2017. Sanatana Resources Inc. ("Sanatana" or the "Company": TSX-V: STA) has, further to its news releases of February 17 and February 27, 2017, closed a non-brokered private placement of 10,870,000 flow-through units (the "FT Units") at $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of $543,500 (the "Tranche 1 Closing").

Each FT Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company that is a "flow-through share" within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional non-flow-through common share (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.10 per Warrant Share on or before March 21, 2019, subject to acceleration on terms summarized in the Company's news release dated February 27, 2017.

The Company paid an eligible finder a commission equal to $5,800 (the "Finder's Fee"). The Finder's Fee was paid by issuing 116,000 non-flow-through common shares of the Company at a deemed price of $0.05 per non-flow-through common share.

All securities issued in connection with the Tranche 1 Closing are subject to a statutory hold period expiring on July 22, 2017 in accordance with applicable securities legislation.

The proceeds from the Tranche 1 Closing will be used for exploration on the Company's Jackfish Property. For details on the Company's Jackfish Property and the terms governing the option earn-in, see Sanatana's news release dated February 7, 2017.
