D'Arianne Resources Inc.: Gold Results From Opinaca

SAGUENAY, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 27, 2005) - D'arianne Resources Inc.(TSX VENTURE:DAR)

Following geological reconnaissance work completed in July 2005, D'Arianne is pleased to announce excellent sampling results from the Contact zone of the Opinaca property. The property is located South of the Opinaca reservoir and a few kilometers West of the lac a l'Eau Claire deposit of Eastmain Resources Inc.

A total of ten rock samples and channel samples were extracted from the Contact zone and returned exceptional grades, up to 567 grAu/tm . Other significant results from this gold zone, ranging from 1 grAu/tm to 87 grAu/tm, confirms the presence of a 50 metres by 300 metres gold corridor (at least). This corridor, injected with quartz gold veins and small veins, was previously explored in the past, but no drilling was done on the zone. Mr. Lapointe and his team are currently washing and extracting additional samples in order to better understand the distribution of the gold in the Contact zone. These works will prepare the drilling campaign planned for this Fall.

Twenty additional samples extracted outside this zone returned anomalous gold values.

Historical data

The Opinaca property covers more than 1,000 hectares and is located in the South part of the Opinaca reservoir.


The property was briefly explored in the late 90's but there was no diamond drilling or stripping done on the property. These works exposed the Contact Zone showing (5,25 g/t on 1 metre and 43.75 g/t Au), the Lac Renard showing (3,81 g/t Au), the Acotago East showing with 9,260 and 1,150 ppm of Zn and the Chino showings, including the Chino Zone (7.94 g/t Au on 4.0 metres), Chino East (6.75 g/t Au in sulfured iron formations) and Chino West (2.6 % Zn).

To date, the highest gold mineralizations are located in the Contact zone.


Mr. Bernard Lapointe, Ph.D., supervised this exploration campaign as the NI 43-101 Qualified Person.
