ALMA, QUÉBEC–(March 21, 2013) - In an effort to contribute actively and positively to the growth of the Saguenay region, the management of Arianne Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DAN)(FRANKFURT:JE9N)(OTCBB:DRRSF)announces the implementation of measures to strengthen its ties with local communities.
The Company intends to take an active part in various committees created by the Innu communities and the various MRCs across the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region with the objective of promoting local economic benefits.

To this end, Arianne is developing a procurement policy that will facilitate business opportunities for local and regional businesses arising from the development and operation of the mine.
In parallel, following the presentation of the Transportation component of the project, for which public consultations will soon be held (see other press release for details), Arianne is also planning to take part in maintenance committees for certain gravel roads in the Maria-Chapdelaine and Fjord-du-Saguenay MRCs related to its emergency preparedness plan.
