Artha Files NI 43-101 Report on Pirquitas Exploration Properties

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 9, 2009) - Artha Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AHC) is pleased to announce that the company has filed a National Instrument 43-101 technical report on the five Pirquitas properties recently optioned from Davcha Resources. Two of the five projects (Davcha JV and Davcha Option) surround Silver Standard Resources recently commissioned Pirquitas Mine on three sides (west, north and east). The old Pirquitas mine selectively worked the stronger veins within what has more recently been recognized as a stockwork system. Structures seen within the Pirquitas mine property pass into the Davcha option and are considered highly prospective.

The other 3 projects properties are 32km to the east (Davcha 1), and 24km and 34km to the southwest (Davcha 2 and 3). The Davcha 1 property was explored by the Mina Pan de Azucar tin and silver mining company some 40 years ago by trenching two oxide caps and, a quartz-baryte vein (Tupiza underground mine) carrying some copper sulphides. Preliminary reconnaissance of the oxide caps indicates oxidized breccias and possible stockwork systems beneath.

The Davcha 2 and 3 properties are located on the east and west flanks of a 12km diameter volcanic ring complex with preliminary government reconnaissance sampling indicating anomalous tin, copper and gold.

In the Davcha JV and Davcha option properties the target mainly comprises extensions to the silver, tin zinc system of the Pirquitas mine. On the Davcha 1 the target mainly comprises the potential for silver tin zinc stockwork systems and a separate vein copper deposit. In the Davcha 2 and 3 properties the main target is for low grade epithermal gold deposits with high tonnage potential.

These five properties are the subject of an acquisition announced on August 17, 2009, and that the closing of the acquisition is subject to completion of the financing announced on August 28, 2009 and TSX-V approval. Charles Straw, B.Sc., is the qualified person under NI 43-101 responsible for the technical information in this news release.

Artha was founded by a team of mining industry professionals with a proven track record in project generation, exploration, mining and finance. The team's primary goal is to build Artha into a world class mining company, focused on the development and mining of economic minerals deposits world wide.

On Behalf of the Board of Directors,

Todd McMurray, President & CEO
