    CALGARY, Nov. 14 /CNW/ - Sienna Gold Inc. (SGP.V TSX Venture Exchange)
announces the latest assay results from surface samples at the Igor property
in Peru. The 91 samples averaged an uncut value of 2.1 grams per tonne gold
and 64.6 grams per tonne silver. Five samples were cut to 5 grams per tonne of
gold resulting in a cut average value of 1.2 grams per tonne.

    Igor Drilling

    Drilling of the geophysical and geochemical anomalies has commenced and
construction of road access to the other drill sites continues as well as the
establishment of a new camp site closer to the drilling locations.

    The latest sample results complete the sampling of the flanks of the Domo
and are from a series of fractures and veins that project radically from the
axis of the anticline. These samples confirm that there is important
mineralization in all the fractures which were opened when the Domo anticline
was created. Continuous samples were taken across the width of the structures
which range up to 0.5 meters. The strength of the anomalous copper anomalies
(38 samples with over 200 ppm copper averaged 777 ppm) and precious metals
values gives encouragement to the presence of a copper porphyry.

    Sampling Methodology

    The samples were taken by taking a 2 centimetre deep channel across the
structures in fresh rock in order to have sufficient material for assaying
that is representative of the mineral of interest. These samples are then
bagged, tagged and sent to the laboratory. GPS coordinates are registered
against each sample.

    Assaying Methodology

    The samples were analyzed by ALS Chemx Laboratories in Lima by
inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy ("ICP-AES") analysis
for silver and 33 other elements and a 30 gram fire assay technique for the
gold analysis. Samples which exceeded the detection limits were re-assayed
using a gravimetric fire assay technique. The specific procedures used by the
lab can be found in the company's 43-101 report on the Igor property.
