Arianne Resources Announces the Spin-Off of its Mexican Assets

CHICOUTIMI, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 12, 2008) - Arianne Resources Inc. (Arianne)(TSX VENTURE:DAR)(FRANKFURT:JE9)(OTCBB:DARUF) would like to announce that subject to regulatory approval, it intends to proceed with a spin-off of its Mexican Properties to a NewCo with the intention to build a strong exploration company in Mexico. The initial ownership of NewCo will mirror the shareholder base of the Company, on a pro-rata basis, at the time of the reorganization with the ratio and record date to be determined by the Board of Directors of the Company. It is anticipated that NewCo will seek a stock exchange listing and complete equity offerings to further develop the El-Rey and San-Jose properties and acquire additional properties. The spin-off will be subject to meeting certain regulatory requirements.

Bernard Lapointe, President and CEO of Arianne, stated, "The recent sampling results, which returned an average of 1.07 g/t Au and 13.95 g/t Ag along a 40-meters strike (see press release dated April 30th, 2008), seem to confirm the historical high grades found on the El Rey property. The management believes by establishing a new public vehicle to develop the Mexican properties, existing Arianne shareholders will be rewarded as management will be able to unlock the true value of the El-Rey property."

NewCo will focus on exploration principally for gold and silver in Mexico, while Arianne will continue to focus on the development of its Canadians projects. NewCo's initial property portfolio will comprise two properties, the El-Rey and the San-Jose. See the following links for more information on the properties: http://arianne-inc.com/fichiers/Projet_El-Rey.pdf and http://arianne-inc.com/fichiers/Projet_San-Jose.pdf .

The Company is currently finalizing the terms and conditions of the proposed restructuring and will update its shareholders once specific details have been confirmed.
