Strategy

Ariana Resources is a leading exploration, development and production company presently focused on Turkey. The Company is targeting the discovery of sizeable mineral systems, primarily 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 deposit discoveries.

Within this province Ariana has one advanced development project (Red Rabbit Project) and a further two advanced exploration projects (Ivrindi and Demirci). The region surrounding the projects is named the WAVE Project Area. Ariana envisages an aggregate resource of 1Moz of gold is achievable within the Red Rabbit Project Area and our strategy is designed to build on our existing resource base via exploration and future acquisitions.

In parallel to our resource development and exploration strategy in western Turkey, Ariana has joint ventured its exploration portfolio in northeastern Turkey to Eldorado Gold Corp. Ariana was also a founding investor in Royal Road Minerals (Jersey-based, TSX-listed) which is focused on gold/copper exploration and Asgard Metals (Australia-based), which is focused on technology-metals exploration. The Company also continues to evaluate new opportunities for acquisition or joint venture, whether located in Turkey or elsewhere.

Objective

Ariana's objective is to deliver shareholder value primarily through the discovery of new gold deposits and the development of gold mines. Other non-gold resource development opportunities are also considered from time to time.

The Company is committed to delivering value through a robust, cost-efficient and focused exploration and development strategy, which integrates geoscientific knowledge and new technologies to identify and advance prospects rapidly.

Ariana is currently targeting the discovery of multi-million ounce gold deposits and intends to achieve this through a combination of a focused acquisitions strategy, partnerships and deployment of its significant exploration expertise.
