Sienna Resources Inc. (TSXV: SIE) (OTC Pink: SNNAF) (FSE: A1XCQ0) ("Sienna" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the maiden drill program has revealed a new lithium discovery on the 100% owned Blue Clay Lithium Project in Clayton Valley, Nevada (See map below). Lithium values as high as 1230 ppm Li were encountered with 800 ppm Li over 120 feet, including 1,011 ppm Li over 40 feet. The Blue Clay Lithium Project consists of 150 contiguous claims totaling approximately 2,950 acres prospective for lithium right in the heart of the Clayton Valley in Nevada, which is currently home to the only producing lithium region in North America.
Jason Gigliotti, President of Sienna Resources, states: "We are very pleased to have made a new lithium discovery on the maiden drill program in the Clayton Valley of Nevada. Domestically sourced lithium is in massive demand especially in light of recent global events. We couldn't be more excited about this new discovery and are immediately planning the next phase of drilling to delineate the lithium held within the property. I was recently down on the property and am very optimistic about the short and long term future this project will have on the growth of Sienna Resources. When you factor in that lithium prices are at their all-time high today, management is very enthused about this new discovery."
