Southern Arc Minerals Inc.: Relinquishment of Central Java Properties

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 12, 2010) - Southern Arc Minerals Inc. ("Southern Arc" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SA) announces that, following receipt of the official Regency decree, it has relinquished both of its Central Java properties (Tirtomoyo and Karang Tengah).

Based on results from surface prospecting programs, guided by regional geochemical surveys, the Company has concluded that these properties are limited in potential, and do not meet the Company's threshold for inclusion in its portfolio. 

Southern Arc's focus over the next 12-18 months will be to fast-track its Lombok and Sumbawa properties to NI43-101 resource status, while at the same time pursuing other mineral opportunities in Indonesia.

On behalf of the Board of Southern Arc Minerals Inc.

John Proust, President & CEO, Director
