Arianne Resources Reports on Third Quarter Fy2012

SAGUENAY, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Arianne Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Arianne") (TSX VENTURE:DAN)(FRANKFURT:JE9N)(OTCBB:DRRSF) today filed its interim financial statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

During the third quarter, Arianne made significant progress in the development of its Lac-a-Paul phosphate project, including:

--  The Pre-Feasibility Study Update (PFSU) was completed. The report
    confirms that a 3 million t/yr phosphate concentrate mine production
    scenario will have a 23.2% IRR and a 3.9 year capital payback on a pre-
    tax basis. These results do not include resource estimates for the
    additional mineralization identified by drilling programs completed
    since the end of 2011. That drilling confirmed the increased strike
    length of Paul Zone mineralization from 1.3 km to 2.7 km. 

--  Closed secured financing of $11 million with minimal dilution. 

--  The Company launched its Feasibility Study (FS) by contracting with
    Cegertec WorleyParsons. Significant progress has been made, with the
    completed FS expected in the second half of 2013. 

--  Metallurgical testing of Paul and Manouane Zone ores advanced
    significantly. Jacobs Engineering has been contracted to validate all
    previous metallurgical work and further optimize the design of the
    proposed Lac-a-Paul facilities. Jacobs has received over 50 tons of ore
    samples and is expected to complete bench scale testing by year end.
    Completion of pilot scale testing and the final engineering report is
    expected mid -2013. 

--  Significant advances in the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) were
    made with the preliminary version of the EIA expected to be submitted in
    the first half of 2013. 

--  A third round of meetings was held with local community members and
    leaders of regional municipalities to inform them of progress with the
    Project. This regional consultation process will continue in 2013. 

"In launching our FS, Arianne has chosen to partner with global experts in the phosphate mining industry to ensure a robust analysis that validates the attractive metallurgical results seen to date and proves up the substantial phosphate reserves we believe exist on the Lac-a-Paul property." commented Bernard Lapointe, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

Financial Summary

The net loss for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012 was $1,585,171 compared to a net loss of $597,951 for the same period in 2011. The higher loss is primarily due to accelerated development of the Lac-a-Paul project and higher expense for stock based compensation.

During Q3 2012, the Company spent $3,621,434 developing Lac-a-Paul in a variety of areas including technical reports, drilling and road work. The net loss for the quarter includes a share based compensation expense of $1,174,143 (compared to $365,750 in 2011) and represents the value of share purchase options issued over the period. This increase is mainly due to a grant of 1,025,000 options during the quarter.

The net loss for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012 amounts to $2,672,918 compared to $614,763 for the same period in 2011, due to the same factors noted above. For the nine-month period ended September 30 2012, the Company spent $6,659,929 developing Lac-a-Paul primarily on technical reports, drilling and road work. Also a factor was significantly higher professional fees incurred for the transition from GAAP to IFRS for the preparation of financial statements for 2011.

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
