Arianne Resources Reports on Third Quarter Fy2012

SAGUENAY, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Arianne Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Arianne") (TSX VENTURE:DAN)(FRANKFURT:JE9N)(OTCBB:DRRSF) today filed its interim financial statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

During the third quarter, Arianne made significant progress in the development of its Lac-a-Paul phosphate project, including:


--  The Pre-Feasibility Study Update (PFSU) was completed. The report
    confirms that a 3 million t/yr phosphate concentrate mine production
    scenario will have a 23.2% IRR and a 3.9 year capital payback on a pre-
    tax basis. These results do not include resource estimates for the
    additional mineralization identified by drilling programs completed
    since the end of 2011. That drilling confirmed the increased strike
    length of Paul Zone mineralization from 1.3 km to 2.7 km. 

--  Closed secured financing of $11 million with minimal dilution. 

--  The Company launched its Feasibility Study (FS) by contracting with
    Cegertec WorleyParsons. Significant progress has been made, with the
    completed FS expected in the second half of 2013. 

--  Metallurgical testing of Paul and Manouane Zone ores advanced
    significantly. Jacobs Engineering has been contracted to validate all
    previous metallurgical work and further optimize the design of the
    proposed Lac-a-Paul facilities. Jacobs has received over 50 tons of ore
    samples and is expected to complete bench scale testing by year end.
    Completion of pilot scale testing and the final engineering report is
    expected mid -2013. 

--  Significant advances in the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) were
    made with the preliminary version of the EIA expected to be submitted in
    the first half of 2013. 

--  A third round of meetings was held with local community members and
    leaders of regional municipalities to inform them of progress with the
    Project. This regional consultation process will continue in 2013. 

"In launching our FS, Arianne has chosen to partner with global experts in the phosphate mining industry to ensure a robust analysis that validates the attractive metallurgical results seen to date and proves up the substantial phosphate reserves we believe exist on the Lac-a-Paul property." commented Bernard Lapointe, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

Financial Summary

The net loss for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012 was $1,585,171 compared to a net loss of $597,951 for the same period in 2011. The higher loss is primarily due to accelerated development of the Lac-a-Paul project and higher expense for stock based compensation.

During Q3 2012, the Company spent $3,621,434 developing Lac-a-Paul in a variety of areas including technical reports, drilling and road work. The net loss for the quarter includes a share based compensation expense of $1,174,143 (compared to $365,750 in 2011) and represents the value of share purchase options issued over the period. This increase is mainly due to a grant of 1,025,000 options during the quarter.

The net loss for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012 amounts to $2,672,918 compared to $614,763 for the same period in 2011, due to the same factors noted above. For the nine-month period ended September 30 2012, the Company spent $6,659,929 developing Lac-a-Paul primarily on technical reports, drilling and road work. Also a factor was significantly higher professional fees incurred for the transition from GAAP to IFRS for the preparation of financial statements for 2011.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
