ARIANA LAUNCHES NOT-FOR-PROFIT INITIATIVE

 

Ariana Resources plc ("Ariana" or "the Company"), the AIM-listed exploration and development company operating in Europe, is pleased to announce the launch of a not-for-profit initiative which it will roll out across its areas of operation.

 

Highlights:

 

·    Not-for-profit initiative launched to support education and sustainability projects benefitting the communities in which the Company operates.

 

·   Initiative to be spearheaded by the supply of Company-branded sustainably sourced organic cotton apparel via the Teemill platform: https://ariana-resources.teemill.com/.

 

·    Fully sustainable and circular business model is at the forefront of the clothing industry and fits well with Ariana's own strong environmentally- and socially-aware ethos.

 

·     All profits from sales will be channelled into the Company's existing community projects.

 

Dr. Kerim Sener, Managing Director of Ariana Resources, commented:

 

"Following the surprisingly strong demand from shareholders for Ariana-branded attire, the Company recognised the opportunities that this creates for developing a not-for-profit initiative without detracting from our core operational priorities.

 

"Ariana has long been committed to the integrity of its projects and the well-being of its employees, stakeholders and the local communities in which we operate.  We have a track record of investing in our local communities through employment, education, healthcare and environmental schemes. Our new Teemill store now allows us to produce sustainable clothing on demand.

 

"We are also aware that many of our shareholders desire the Ariana-branded polo shirts already worn by our staff. We are pleased to announce that these will also be available separately thanks to Design Shack (https://www.design-shack.co.uk) who are kindly producing the polo shirts to support our charity initiative. Further details on these will be provided via the Company's Twitter page in due course."
