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 11.5% of Tigris Resources Limited.
Beaufort International Associates Limited is broker to the Company and
Beaumont Cornish Limited is the Company's Nominated Adviser.
