December 20, 2010 02:00 Arian Silver Gives Operations Update on 100%-Owned San Jose Property, Mexico
LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - Dec. 20, 2010) - Arian Silver Corporation
("Arian" or the "Company") (TSX
VENTURE:AGQ)(AIM:AGQ)(PLUS:AGQ)(FRANKFURT:I3A), a silver exploration,
development and production company with a focus on projects in the silver belt
of Mexico, is pleased to report on progress at the Company's 100%-owned San
Jose Property in Zacatecas State, Mexico.


-- First batch of San Jose concentrate produced;
-- 8 drill holes completed along the San Jose Vein ("SJV");
-- Optimisation of the mill is progressing well;
-- New semi-mobile laboratory construction progressing well; and
-- 12 kilometres of strike extension of the SJV presents additional
significant targets for 2011 drilling.

The first batch of San Jose concentrate comprising 7.5 tonnes and containing
12.4 kilograms of silver (400 ounces) per tonne has been produced.

Optimisation of the mill is progressing well with a view to further increasing
recoveries of silver in concentrate.

Mining at San Jose is progressing well and the operation is currently focused
on stoping at the 'Ramal Sur' block and concurrently advancing the main
haulage ramp in a westerly direction towards the higher-grade 'Santa Ana'
block, which itself comprises a number of stopes. In addition, improvements to
the main haulage ramp have taken place to ensure a more efficient operation,
specifically enabling the more rapid transportation of Run-Of-Mine material
from the underground loading area to the stockpile pad on the surface.

Core drilling is underway using two 'Longyear 44' drill rigs. Eight holes have
been completed to date with a total of 1,518 metres, or 15.2% of the total
programme, and the first samples have been submitted for analysis.

The construction of the Company's semi-mobile laboratory is progressing
according to plan with the Stewart Group in British Columbia, Canada, and this
is expected to be delivered to the San Jose Mine during January 2011.
Turnaround times for assay results should significantly improve for drill core
samples when this is in place (see the Company's press release dated 22
November 2010).

Commenting on today's operations update, Arian's Chief Executive Officer, Jim
Williams, said:

"It gives me great pleasure to report such positive progressive news regarding
all of the Company's major activities. We have been working on increasing the
mining and milling efficiencies since production commenced at San Jose, and
the results of these efforts are now becoming apparent with production of our
first concentrate.

"Experts forecast that silver prices will continue to strengthen next year,
just as we increase our production and begin to define some of the untested
potential within the existing known mineralisation in the SJV system. The
exciting substantial potential along the approximately 12 kilometres of strike
extension of the SJV presents significant targets for our 2011 drilling. Once
again, we would like to thank all our shareholders for their continued support
as we grow the Company."
