Sanatana Provides Exploration Update

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, August 1, 2017. Sanatana Resources Inc. ("Sanatana" or the "Company": TSX-V: STA) is pleased to provide this exploration and operational update on the Jackfish property.

Exploration Update:

Sanatana's exploration program (see the Company's news release dated June 19, 2017) at the Jackfish property commenced in mid-July with the first ground geophysical survey already completed: a VLF survey highlighting a conductivity anomaly linking the Cliff and North Zones. Additionally, preparations have been made for the acquisition of new satellite imagery to generate a high accuracy digital surface model for the property that will serve as a valuable base map for compiling the project 3D GIS database.

Trail clearing with an excavator to gain access into the Wahl property has uncovered two new sites of quartz veining with the presence of sulphide. Grab samples are being collected at these and other areas found by prospecting around the property, with initial assay results expected in the next few weeks. A crew has been mobilized to begin channel cutting and sampling at the recently completed outcrop stripping at the Rudy #4 showing as well as the areas of previously exposed bedrock at the North and Hematite Zones. All of this preliminary field work is essential to developing quality drill targets and fine tuning the drill program planned for later this summer.

Peter Miles, President and CEO, commented: "We are pleased that Sanatana's exploration program at the Jackfish property has begun and we look forward to mobilizing a drill, which is already on site, once our preliminary work is completed. Over the next few months news flow should increase as we generate results from our exploration."
