Financial results for the six months ended 30 June 2016

Arian Silver Corporation (“Arian” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce its financial results for the six months ended 30 June 2016.

Strategy

Arian is focused on identifying economic sources of silver and other precious metals, and developing mineral projects through to production. The Company has previously concentrated exclusively on projects within the Zacatecas silver belt in Mexico, but recent economic conditions have presented abnormally high value opportunities around the world, and the Company may broaden its focus beyond solely the Zacatecas region and indeed beyond Mexico to ensure the Company does not automatically preclude valuable opportunities should they arise elsewhere.

Financial highlights

As at 30 June 2016, the Company had total assets of US$2.5 million (2015: US$40.0 million) of which US$1.2 million (2015: US$0.8 million) was cash. The Company had total liabilities of US$0.1 million (2015: US$26.4 million) of which US$0.1 million were current liabilities (2015: US$5.0 million).

In the six months ended 30 June 2016 the Company made an operating loss of US$3.4 million (2015: US$1.6 million) and a loss per share of US$2.66 (2015: US$0.05). The Company raised proceeds by way of private placings of shares of US$2.1 million before costs and expenses, to further its strategy.

Overview of operations

During the six months ended 30 June 2016, the Company has focused primarily on identifying projects with good potential for near-term production and in May 2016 the Company entered into an exclusive arrangement with Tierra Nuevo Mining Limited (“TNM”) in Mexico to conduct further assessment and due diligence on its assets, including a tailings project containing gold and silver, adjacent to Goldcorp’s Peñasquito open-pit mine. The period of exclusivity has been extended to 28 October 2016.

A NI 43-101 report prepared for TNM in 2012 outlined an indicated mineral resource in respect of its tailings project, containing 1 million tonnes with 3 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 55 g/t silver, representing approximately 100,000 ounces (oz) of gold and some 1.7 million oz of silver.

Arian’s detailed metallurgical test work continues together with a scoping study, with a view to producing a saleable gold and silver concentrate from the tailings project.

As announced on 26 January 2016, Arian concluded the financial settlement with Quintana AGQ Holding Co. LLC and its affiliates and received a final payment of US$50,000.

The Company conducted an assessment of its Calicanto project and concluded its size and location made it impracticable for the Company to exploit. Accordingly, a buyer was sought and an agreement entered into in July 2016, after the interim reporting period.

Properties

As at 30 June 2016, the Company had 19 fully owned mining concessions split between three distinct project areas and covering over 1,500 hectares:

Los Campos

The Los Campos project comprises four concessions covering an area of approximately 500 hectares, located on the south side of the city of Zacatecas. The property is easily accessible and is only a 15-minute drive from the centre of the City of Zacatecas and from the Calicanto project.

San Celso project

San Celso consists of three contiguous mining concessions totalling 88 hectares. The concessions are located in the historic mining district of Pánfilo Natera-Ojocaliente and are surrounded by other concessions to the south and west.

Calicanto project

The Calicanto property, the sale of which was announced on 1 August 2016, consists of seven contiguous mining concessions totalling approximately 75 hectares. The property is located in the heart of the Zacatecas mining district, adjacent and partly contiguous to Capstone Mining’s Cozamin mine, and covers four known main vein systems.

Others

Arian Silver holds five additional concessions covering over 900 hectares. These concessions were acquired in 2006 because of their strategic position to the San Celso project. These concessions too require further exploratory work to fully assess their economic potential.

Post balance sheet events

On 1 August 2016 the Company announced its Mexican subsidiary, Compañía Minera Estrella De Plata SA de CV, had executed a binding agreement with Minera Oro Silver de Mexico SA de CV (“Minera Oro Silver”), a subsidiary of Endeavour Silver Corporation, to sell the Company’s 75 hectare Calicanto Project in the State of Zacatecas, for a cash consideration of US$400,000, which will be received upon the execution and ratification of the assignment agreement in respect of the relevant mineral concessions. The Calicanto Project had a carrying value of US$602,000 as at 31 December 2015 and has therefore been impaired to the consideration value of US$400,000.

Future outlook

The management team continues to advance potential opportunities to expand and develop the Company’s mining assets, with a particular focus on assets giving access to near-term revenues.

Arian Silver Corporation
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)
For the six months ended 30 June 2016
(tabular amounts expressed in thousands of US dollars unless otherwise stated)

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 2015. 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 2015.

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 directors regularly review cash flow forecasts to determine whether the Group has sufficient cash reserves to meet future working capital requirements and discretionary business development opportunities including exploration activities.

The Company’s financial obligations to Quintana AGQ Holding Co. LLC and its affiliates (“Quintana”) were cancelled in the latter part of 2015 in lieu of Quintana taking over the Company’s San José project. The Company retains its San Celso, Calicanto and Los Campos projects along with all other mining concessions held at the time when the Company became public on AIM and TSXV in 2006, such remaining concessions all comprising more than 1,600 hectares. As part of the settlement, Quintana paid US$650,000 to the Company during the year ended 31 December 2015, and a further US$50,000 was paid in January 2016.

In February 2016, the Company successfully raised $1.1 million before expenses (net US$1.0 million) and in May 2016, raised a further US$1.0 million before expenses (net US$0.9 million).

The Group’s assets are at an early stage and in order to meet financing requirements for their development previously the Company has raised equity funds in several discrete share placements, which is a common practice for junior mineral exploration companies. Although the Company has been successful in the past in raising equity finance, there can be no assurance that the funding required by the Group will be made available to it when needed or, if such funding were to be available, that it would be offered on reasonable terms. The terms of such financing might not be favourable to the Group and might involve substantial dilution to existing shareholders.

The directors currently believe that the Group has adequate resources for the foreseeable future or access to such resources in order to continue to prepare the Company’s financial statements on a going concern basis. In reaching this conclusion, the directors have reviewed cash flow forecasts to the end of July 2017 and considered their ability to reduce expenditure in the event that further fundraisings are not completed within that timeframe, and have concluded they can make such savings as may be necessary in order to operate within the funds currently available to them.

The discontinued operations referred to for the year ended 31 December 2015 relate to the formerly owned San José property in Zacatecas State, Mexico. The Company was compelled to enter into a settlement agreement with its financing partner Quintana in November 2015. This settlement agreement resulted in Quintana taking control of the Company’s primary operating subsidiary Arian Silver de Mexico SA de CV.

Under the terms of the settlement agreement, Quintana was required to transfer back to ASC the mineral concessions not related to the San José project.

In return for receiving certain indemnities and releases, Quintana paid ASC US$650,000 (plus a further US$50,000 during 2016).

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 2016 are detailed in the following table and relate entirely to deferred exploration and development costs:

Closing balance 731 981 881

The impairment relates to the Calicanto Project, being the difference in the carrying value of US$602,000 and the consideration received of US$400,000.

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 2016 are detailed in the following table:

The amount shown for discontinued operations at 31 December 2015 of $35.1 million, relates to the formerly owned San José property in Zacatecas State, Mexico, which was taken over by Quintana under the terms of the senior secured financing arrangement.

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.
