Arian Silver Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AGQ)(AIM:AGQ)(FRANKFURT:I3A) (the “Company” or “Arian Silver”) a silver exploration, development and production company with a focus on projects in the silver belt of Zacatecas, Mexico, reports that good progress continues to be made on the refurbishment of the El Bote custom processing plant (the “Plant”), which is expected to process up to 1,500 tonnes per day (“tpd”) when operating at full capacity.

Jim Williams, Chief Executive Officer of Arian Silver, commented: “Arian Silver is making excellent progress in finalising the refurbishment programme of its wholly-owned custom processing plant, keeping the Company on track for the reassembly of the Plant, and it’s commissioning during the final quarter of this year. Refinancing activities are also advancing positively, and I look forward to updating shareholders further, in due course.”

El Bote Processing Plant

In August 2013, Arian Silver purchased a custom processing plant, located just 60km from the Company’s mine site. The acquisition of this Plant is expected to enable Arian Silver to increase production in a modular manner up to a maximum capacity of 1,500 tpd. This, together with increased mine production and the elimination of Arian Silver’s reliance upon third-party toll millers, is expected to provide significantly increased operational control and efficiency, which should therefore translate into significantly reduced operational costs.

The refurbishment of the Plant is now approximately 95% complete and on track to be commissioned by end 2014. Refurbished parts of the plant have begun to be transported to site adjacent to the San Jose mine.

The land set aside for the Plant has been prepared and is now ready for the first concrete to be poured for the foundations.



• Fast. PhotoSat solutions are ideal for large, inaccessible, or remote sites. With no permits needed, we can efficiently produce engineering-grade surveys and alteration mineral maps over hundreds or even thousands of square kilometers. No site access is required, and all data processing is completed without involvement from ground crews.
• Global. Satellites are not restricted by borders, permits, or ground logistics. We have completed more than 1,300 projects in over 75 countries, with exacting standards of accuracy and consistency.
• Reliable. Each PhotoSat project is produced from satellite photos, with each photo covering hundreds of square kilometers. As a result, our data sets are consistent, time-stamped and robust, with high data point density.
• Innovative. PhotoSat is a leader in satellite-based surveying technology and alteration mineral mapping. We use proprietary deep learning algorithms in our data processing. Our unique technology produces outstanding results that are trusted by mining companies and engineering consultants around the world.
