Strategy : The Company has dedicated much of its exploration effort on 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.
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, with our base of operations at Sindirgi located strategically at its core. Current resources held by the Company in the WAVE Project Area stand at 448,000 oz Au equivalent.
In addition to containing our advanced projects, the Project Area encompasses the majority of our exploration tenements in western Turkey. The exploration and development risk to future gold resources in this region is reduced due to excellent infrastructure and established local mining operations.
Ariana envisages that an aggregate resource of 1Moz of gold can be achieved within the 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 and made a strategic investment in Tigris Resources (Jersey based private company). The Company also continues to evaluate new opportunities for acquisition or joint venture.
Objective : Ariana's objective is to deliver shareholder value through the discovery of new gold deposits and the development of gold mines.
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 and develop prospects rapidly.
Ariana is targeting the discovery of a multi-million ounce gold deposit in Turkey and intends to achieve this through a combination of acquisition, strategic partnership and full utilisation of its significant exploration expertise in Turkey.
