Sienna Obtains Drill Permit for Pachin Alto Exploration Program

    CALGARY, March 28 /CNW/ - Sienna Gold Inc. (SGP.V TSX Venture Exchange)
announces that it has received approval from the Peruvian Ministry of Energy
and Mines to drill on the Pachin Alto Project. The Company is currently
mobilizing a rig to the area and will initially drill 5 holes from 3 platforms
to test the geophysical anomalies.
    Surface mapping and sampling in the area of the geophysical anomalies
identified large surface expressions of "vuggy quartz" silicification
alteration which is also indicative of these mineralized systems. Geophysical
(induced polarization) exploration has defined large, coincident chargeability
and resistivity highs which are characteristic of Yanacocha and Pierina-like
gold systems. The anomalies indicate sulphide mineralization beginning at a
depth of 50 meters and extending to at least 400 meters below the ground
surface. These IP cross-sections can be seen at the Company's website at
    Agreements have been reached with all the local communities and work is
currently underway to construct access to the drill platforms. It is
anticipated that drilling will commence in early April 2007. Geophysical crews
are currently working at Pachin to expand the geophysical database in the
drill target areas. This work will be completed in the next 10 days.
