New Mineralized Sectors for the Lac-à-Paul Project

Saguenay, May 8, 2012: Arianne Resources Management («Arianne» or the «Company») whishes to provide an update on the drillings that were conducted on its Lac-à-Paul phosphate project outside Paul Zone. Drillings were done in the  Lise, Nicole, La Traverse and Lucie Sectors (see map: http://bit.ly/IjvAgU).  

On March 20th 2012, the Company announced results for drillings in Paul Zone, which is now over 2 km in length. This winter, we did some exploratory drillings in new high potential sectors in order to validate our geological models and our field data. Those drillings were highly successful as significant phosphate mineralizations were found. Consequently, the resources growth potential on the property is not limited to the known zones such as Paul, Manouane and 2.  

The following is a summary of recent discoveries:  

Lise Sector Drillings totaling 1,401 meters have been done in the Lise Sector which is located approx. 7 km south of  Manouane Zone. Some re-sampling was also conducted on two ancient exploration drillings that were done at this site  (LAP-09-05 et LAP-09-10). Lise Sector has now a known strike length of 1.1 km.
