With Ariana's principal exploration and development focused around western and north-eastern Turkey, the company believes that south-eastern Turkey is the next great frontier for gold and copper exploration in Turkey. Effective exploration in this region requires a unique and dedicated management capability with a focused exploration mind-set.
As a consequence, Ariana Resources made a strategic investment into Tigris Resources in 2010. Tigris is a private exploration and development company focused on gold and copper deposits in the highly prospective Tethyan Metallogenic Belt in southeast Turkey. Ariana is confident that the unique skills of the Tigris team will be applied to a region that hosts significant potential for the discovery of world-class deposits.
The focus area of Tigris will be the Bitlis Suture Zone and flanking structures, which are highly prospective for a range of mineral deposit styles including porphyry Cu-Au systems, epithermal to Carlin-style deposits, skarns and volcanogenic massive sulphides.
