Arian Silver Corporation (the “Company”) announces further to its notification of 29 October 2015, trading in the Company’s shares is expected to resume on AIM at 8.00am today.

Further to the Company’s announcement on 27 November 2015 of the signing of a settlement deed (“Settlement Deed”) with Quintana AGQ Holding Co. LLC and its affiliates (together, “Quintana”), Quintana have waived their right to demand reimbursement of the US$650,000 paid to the Company in accordance with the terms of the Settlement Deed.

The Company has a net working capital of US$411k and the Directors expect this to sustain the Company to February 2016. The Company will need to raise additional funds for its projects in Mexico and for general working capital purposes; discussions are currently underway in this regard.

The Company voluntarily delisted from TSXV at the close of trading on 1 December 2015 and accordingly is no longer required to publish its quarterly results in accordance with the rules of the TSXV. As a consequence, the Company will not be producing Q3 2015 financial statements. The Company’s most recent published financial statements, for the three and six months ended 30 June 2015, are available on the Company’s website www.ariansilver.com and are also set out below. These provide a comparison against the current working capital position and the position of being debt-free.

1. Basis of preparation, going concern and adequacy of project finance

These interim unaudited consolidated financial statements for Arian Silver Corporation (“ASC” or the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards.

ASC is a company domiciled in the British Virgin Islands. The consolidated financial statements of the Company comprise financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries (together referred to as the “Group”). The Group is primarily involved in the exploration and development of mineral resource assets.

The accounting policies and methods of computation used in the preparation of the interim unaudited consolidated financial statements are the same as those described in the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended 31 December 2014. In the opinion of the management, the interim unaudited consolidated financial statements include all adjustments considered necessary for fair and consistent presentation of financial statements. These interim unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements and notes for the year ended 31 December 2014.

These consolidated financial statements are presented in United States dollars as the Company believes it to be the most appropriate and meaningful currency for investors. The functional currencies of the Company and its subsidiaries are pounds sterling, Mexican peso and United States dollars.

The Financial Statements have been prepared on a going concern basis. The going concern basis assumes that the Company will continue for the foreseeable future such that it is able to resume operations and to realise its assets and discharge its liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business.

At 30 June 2015 the Company had net current assets of $0.3 million. $1.0 million of the current derivative liability balance related to the valuation of the conversion option of the Quintana Note (see note 7). This item will not be settled in cash and, when added back, resulted in a net current asset position of $1.3 million.

In October 2014, the Company entered into a $32 million financing package, which was expected at that time to complete the Group’s funding requirements for the development of the San José project and to enable the Group to achieve full-scale commercial production. Details of the financing package are set out in note 7.

Included in the Group’s cash flow forecast are assumptions over the ability to draw down funds available to it under the Base Metals Purchase Agreement (“BMPA”) with Quintana San Jose Streaming Co. LLC (“Quintana Streaming”), which is subject to the Group achieving certain operational milestones. Should the Group fall into default, Quintana Streaming may elect to terminate the BMPA and require the Group to repay the uncredited balance of the upfront payment under the agreement. At the time of releasing this report it was the directors’ opinion that the conditions surrounding the drawdown milestones and operational covenants under the BMPA were expected to be satisfied. At 30 June 2015, $2.0 million remained available to draw down under the BMPA. A further $1.6 million was drawn down in July 2015 as detailed in note 11, reducing the remaining balance, to $0.4 million.

First silver-lead concentrate sales revenues were received in April 2015 and commissioning of the Plant remained underway at 30 June 2015 and was expected to continue during the third quarter of 2015.

1. Basis of preparation, going concern and adequacy of project finance (continued)

There are significant risks associated with establishing any new mining and processing operation, the realisation of which, could delay profitable commercial production and increase working capital requirements. The Company seeks to manage these risks by employing a proven processing method, completing studies over the critical aspects of the project to ensure that the variables and operational risks are understood, employing a management team and contractors

with suitable capabilities and experience, and building into its business model, contingency to manage events such as deterioration in market conditions or operational difficulties.

Despite the application of the aforementioned measures, the Company’s working capital requirements have increased beyond earlier expectations and it will therefore be necessary for additional funds to be raised.

The Group has been successful in raising finance in the past but no assurance can be given that the Group will be able to raise funds in future, especially in view of the current volatile market conditions and weak silver price. If the Group is unsuccessful in raising funds in future, it will not be able to meet its on-going working capital and project expenditure requirements; in such circumstance, this would constitute a material uncertainty casting significant doubt on the Group’s ability to continue as a going concern, and the carrying value of the Group’s exploration and other assets would be required to be reviewed.

After full consideration of the factors above, the directors believe the Company has access to adequate financial resources in order to prepare the Company’s financial statements on a going concern basis.

2. Intangible assets – deferred exploration and evaluation costs

The Group’s deferred exploration and evaluation costs comprise costs directly incurred in exploration and evaluation as well as the cost of maintaining mineral licences. They are capitalised as intangible assets pending the determination of the feasibility of the project. When the decision is taken to develop a mine the related intangible assets are transferred to property, plant and equipment. Where a project is abandoned or is determined not economically viable, the related costs are written off.

The recoverability of deferred exploration and evaluation costs is dependent upon a number of factors common to the natural resource sector. These include the extent to which the Group can establish economically recoverable reserves on its properties, the ability of the Group to obtain necessary financing to complete the development of such reserves and future profitable production or proceeds from the disposition thereof.

Intangible assets for the six months ended 30 June 2015 and the year ended 31 December 2014 are detailed in the following table:

Closing balance

1,038

The balances at 30 June 2015 and at 31 December 2014 relate entirely to deferred exploration and development costs.

3. Property, plant and equipment

The Group’s property, plant and equipment incorporates mine development costs, including appropriate deferred exploration and evaluation costs transferred on development of an exploration property, and costs incurred in the acquisition and development of the Company’s processing plant. Before reclassification, such costs are assessed for impairment, with any impairment recognised in profit or loss for the period.

All subsequent development and commissioning costs are capitalised. Once the mine and plant are operating in the manner intended by management, the mining assets will be amortised over the estimated life of the reserves on a unit of production basis.

Changes in property, plant and equipment for the six months ended 30 June 2015 and the year ended 31 December 2014 are detailed in the following table:

The mine development costs at 30 June 2015 of $15.4 million (31 December 2014: $13.4 million), relate to the 100% owned San José property in Zacatecas State, Mexico.

Plant and equipment includes $18.6 million (31 December 2014: $15.0 million) for La Tesorera Processing Plant, of which $9.7 million (31 December 2014: $8.3 million) relates to transaction and interest costs that have been capitalised.

4. Inventories

Inventories comprise silver concentrate produced, ore stockpiles and consumables, and are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Silver concentrate produced and ore stockpiles are calculated on an average cost basis and include all costs directly incurred up to the relevant point of the process, such as mining costs, milling costs, transport, operating and administration costs. Net realisable value is determined with reference to market prices.

6. Stock-based compensation

The share option plan allows Group directors, officers, employees and consultants to acquire shares of the Company. The fair value of options granted is recognised as an expense with a corresponding increase in equity. The fair value is measured at grant date and spread over the period until the options vest unconditionally. The fair value of the options granted is measured using the Black-Scholes model and assumptions is set out below, taking into account the terms and conditions upon which the options were granted. The amount recognised as an expense is adjusted to reflect the actual number of share options that vest, except if the change is due to market based conditions not being satisfied.

Pricing models require the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the expected price volatility. In the current period it was deemed that enough information on historic share prices was available to calculate the expected stock price volatility. Changes in the subjective input assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimate and, therefore, the existing models do not necessarily provide a reliable single measure of the fair value of units granted by the Company.

The total expense relating to the fair value of the share options recognised in administrative expenses for the six months ended 30 June 2015 was $18,000 (31 December 2014: $14,000).

The convertible option of the Convertible Note has been treated as an embedded derivative because it does not meet the IFRS definition of equity. The liability and derivative liability components are presented separately in the Consolidated Statement of Financial Position starting from initial recognition. At initial recognition, the value of the liability component is based on the proceeds from the transaction less the fair value of the derivative liability. Subsequent to initial recognition, the liability component is measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method; the liability component is increased by accretion of the effective interest to reach the nominal value of the note plus premium payable on maturity.

7. Convertible note (continued)

On initial recognition, the fair value of the derivative liability is established using a Monte Carlo simulation. Subsequently, the derivative liability is fair valued at each reporting date and changes in the fair value are taken directly to the Statement of Comprehensive Income.

Transaction costs are distributed between the convertible note and derivative liability on a pro-rata basis of their carrying amounts on initial recognition.

8. Provision for mine closure

An obligation to incur decommissioning and site rehabilitation costs occurs when environmental disturbance is caused by the development or on-going production of a mining property. Costs are estimated on the basis of a closure plan and are subject to regular review.

Such costs arising from the installation of plant and other site preparation work, discounted to their net present value, are provided and capitalised within mine development costs at the start of each project, as soon as the obligation to incur such cost arises. These decommissioning costs are charged against profits over the life of the mine, through depreciation of the asset and unwinding or amortisation of the discount on the provision. Depreciation is included in operating costs while the unwinding of the discount is included in financing costs. Changes in the measurement of a liability relating to the decommissioning of plant or other site preparation work are added to, or deducted from, the cost of the related asset in the current period.

Changes in mine closure provision for the six months ended 30 June 2015 and the year ended 31 December 2014 are detailed in the following table:

The provision has been made to cover projected closure costs of the San José mine and La Tesorera processing plant for a mining period of approximately 10 years.

At 30 June 2015, closure costs were calculated to be $1,390,000 (31 December 2014: $1,390,000) at the end of the 10 years using a discount rate of 5% (31 December 2014: 5%). Closure activities include decommissioning, reclamation and rehabilitation.
