CHICOUTIMI, QUEBEC–(March 20, 2013) - Arianne Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DAN)(FRANKFURT:JE9N)(OTCBB:DRRSF) announces that it intends, subject to regulatory approval, to amend the terms of 4,000,000 common share purchase warrants (“Warrants“) issued as part of its private placement in April 2011. Each of the Warrants, which were part of the units being issued, entitled its holder to purchase one common share of Arianne (“Common Share“) at an exercise price of $1.50 per Common Share expiring on April 29, 2013. None of the Warrants were exercised since issuance.
