Share Price Movement

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2013) - Arian Silver Corporation ("Arian" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AGQ)(AGQ.L)(I3A.F), a silver exploration, development and production company with a focus on projects in the Zacatecas silver belt of Mexico, notes the recent decline in the Company's share price. The Board of Directors reaffirm that the fundamentals for silver and the investment opportunity for Arian Silver have not changed in the short-term.

Demand for silver as an industrial component is sustained and the Company's 15 March 2013 statement regarding the intended acquisition of a processing plant with a capacity of up to 1,500 tonnes per day of silver-lead-zinc ore is a significant milestone for the Company.

The Company confirms financing talks are continuing in line with expectations and there has been no significant development in this regard to justify any share price movement.
