D'Arianne Resources Inc. Announces Drilling Results from the Standard Gold Property, Duverny

SAGUENAY, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 23, 2006) - The management of d'Arianne Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DAR) is pleased to announce that it has intersected the lateral extensions of the Read Shear zone on a length of 350 meters during the drilling campaign completed last December. This drilling campaign on the Standard Gold property, located in the Amos area, in Abitibi, was done to test the gold potential of this shear zone. Previous drilling from 1987 (GM 46956) showed potential for gold for this important structure oriented WNW-ESE where seven drill holes on a total of eight, returned good gold results. This important structure intersects at a right angle, the four main veins that created the Standard Gold deposit.

The Standard Gold property was previously developed on five levels in the early fifties with the deepening of a 389-meter deep vertical shaft with three compartments, and 2,500 meters of galleries. A complete restoration of the installations as well as additional exploration, were performed between 1985 and 1987. During these works, a bulk sample program of 3,355 metric tons coming from three different sites was completed and gold recovery at the plant was 27.3% better than the sampling done on the same ore before plant treatment. The all category estimated resources, according to the Jack D. Charlton F.G.A.C. report in collaboration with Tracy Kelly, project geologist (GM 46956), are 132,750 tons at 5.43 g/t Au, without including the 27.3 % improved recovery.

These historical resources do not comply with the current NI 43-101 norm. The current results will be included in the new resource estimate currently being revised by Promines Consultants Inc., of Val d'Or, in order to establish the new NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate.

The drilling campaign was done under the supervision of Mr. Bernard Lapointe PhD, NI 43-101 Qualified Person, and assays were performed at Laboratoire Expert Inc., of Rouyn-Noranda.
