Vancouver, October 16, 2023 - Sienna Resources Inc. (TSXV: SIE) (OTC Pink: SNNAF) (FSE: A1XCQ0) ("Sienna" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has contracted Alloy Drilling LLC of Elko, Nevada for the first phase of drilling expected to commence in October. Recently, Sienna received approval from the BLM to drill up to 5 initial locations on its recently acquired "Elko Lithium Project" in Elko County, Nevada. This project consists of approximately 1,200 contiguous acres directly bordering Surge Battery Metals' (NILI) "Nevada North Lithium Project" in Elko County, Nevada. According to the news dated September 12, 2023 from Surge, "The first certified analytical results for the 2023 summer drilling program at Surge Battery Metals Inc.'s Nevada North lithium project (NNLP) have returned multiple zones of high values ranging from 1,000 parts per million to 8,070 ppm lithium, the highest grades for exploration to date on the Nevada North Lithium Project. Sienna management cautions that past results or discoveries on properties in proximity to Sienna may not necessarily be indicative of the presence of mineralization on the company's properties.
Jason Gigliotti, President of Sienna states, "We are very pleased to be able to put this drill program together. Alloy has a proven track record of drilling success in the area and we are looking forward to working with them on this first phase of drilling. This drill program could be a game changer for Sienna when you consider the market reaction to our neighbour, Surge Battery Metals whose shares have risen from a low of $0.065 to a recent high of $1.55 based on their drill results right beside Sienna's property. Not only do we have this new lithium project, but Sienna is one of the largest landholders in Clayton Valley, Nevada through its other property interests. Sienna has more than enough cash on hand for the anticipated current exploration plans and we expect to be very active on multiple fronts for the remainder of 2023. Management is extremely optimistic about the future and looks forward to what will happen with this planned drill program. The next few weeks and months will be a very exciting time for Sienna management and shareholders."

About Sienna Resources Inc.
Sienna has recently acquired the "Elko Lithium Project" in Elko County, Nevada. This project consists of approximately 1200 contiguous acres directly bordering Surge Battery Metals' (NILI) "Nevada North Lithium Project" in Elko County, Nevada. Sienna is also one of the larger landholders in Clayton Valley Nevada. Sienna's Clayton Valley projects include the Blue Clay Lithium Project, the Silver Peak South Project, and the Clayton Valley Deep Basin Lithium Project. Clayton Valley is home to the only lithium production in North America, being Albemarle Corp's Silver Peak deposit. This project is also near Tesla Motors Inc.'s Gigafactory in Nevada. On March 18, 2021, Schlumberger New Energy Venture announced the development of a lithium extraction pilot plant through its new venture, NeoLith Energy in a strategic partnership with Pure Energy. The deployment of the pilot plant will be in Clayton Valley, Nevada, USA. The NeoLith Energy sustainable approach uses a differentiated direct lithium extraction (DLE) process to enable the production of high-purity, battery-grade lithium material while reducing the production time from over a year to weeks. Results from this pilot plant are expected in 2023 and could have a significant impact on the brine prospects within Clayton Valley Nevada as Sienna is located in the deepest section of this brine deposit. One other project Sienna has is the 'Marathon North Platinum-Palladium Property' in Northern Ontario directly bordering Generation Mining Marathon Deposit.
