About Ariana Resources

Ariana is  an  exploration  and  development  company  focused  on  epithermal 
gold-silver and  porphyry  copper-gold deposits  in  Turkey. The  Company  is 
developing a portfolio of  prospective licences selected on  the basis of  its 
in-house geological and remote-sensing database, on its own in western  Turkey 
and in Joint Venture with  Eldorado Gold Corporation in north-eastern  Turkey. 
Eldorado owns 51% of this joint venture and is fully funding all  exploration 
work on the JV properties, while Ariana owns 49% and is the operator.

The Company's flagship assets are its Sindirgi and Tavsan gold projects  which 
form the Red Rabbit Gold Project. Both contain a series of prospects,  within 
two prolific  mineralised  districts in  the  Western Anatolian  Volcanic  and 
Extensional (WAVE)  Province  in  western Turkey.  This  Province  hosts  the 
largest operating gold mines in Turkey and remains highly prospective for  new 
porphyry and epithermal deposits. These core projects, which are separated by
a distance of 75km, are presently  being assessed as to their economic  merits 
and now form part of a Joint Venture with Proccea Construction Co. The  total 
resource inventory of the Company stands at 448,000 ounces of gold equivalent.


Ariana  also  has   a  strategic  investment   in  Tigris  Resources   Limited 
(www.tigrisresources.com), a private  Jersey-based exploration company,  which 
is focused on  the exploration of  copper and gold  deposits in  south-eastern 
Turkey. Ariana retains 12.3% of Tigris Resources Limited. 

S.P. Angel  Corporate Finance  LLP are  brokers to  the Company  and  Beaumont 
Cornish Limited is the Company's Nominated Adviser.
