Arianne Starts Drilling on the Opinaca Property, James Bay.

SAGUENAY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 15, 2008) - Arianne Resources ("Arianne") (TSX VENTURE:DAR)(FRANKFURT:JE9)(OTCBB:DARUF) is pleased to announce that it started the drilling campaign on its Opinaca property, James Bay, Quebec. Drilling was previously interrupted during the Fall of 2007 following the relocation of the work camp in order for Hydro-Quebec to build access roads for the Eastmain 1-A project. This road is now accessible for us.

These 2008 drill holes will essentially test in-depth continuity of the gold mineralisation on the 4 zones previously outlined and drilled in 2006 i.e. the Contact Zone : 4.73 g/t Au on 3.1 m ; the Isabelle Zone : 31.44 g/t Au on 2.6 m ; the Bull Zone : 1.52 g/t Au on 13.6 m and the Chino Zone : 3.30 g/t Au on 6.75 m). This will be a 3,000-metre drilling campaign.

In 2007, we have tested some of the numerous IP geophysical anomalies identified during last winter (see March 29, 2007 press release). Results will be obtaines and assayed within the first quarter of 2008(Q1). The complete results of this drilling campaign will be announced at the end of the drilling campaign.

Arianne wishes to remind its shareholders that the exploration budget for 2008 is close to $3,000,000. These funds will be invested on its Opinaca/James Bay, Massicotte/Detour Lake and R-14/Chibougamau gold projects as well as its uranium and rare earth materials projects in Natashquan on Quebec's North Shore.
