Where we operate

At a glance

Ariana’s primary operations are located in the Republic of Turkey. Turkey lies within the globally significant Tethyan metallogenic belt, which hosts some of the world’s largest gold, silver and copper deposits. The country remains Europe’s largest gold producer with 10 operating gold mines (including Ariana's Kiziltepe Gold Mine). Turkey’s current defined gold reserves are 710 tonnes but geological modelling predictions show the potential for approximately 6,500 tonnes.

The Company also reviews and assesses other projects situated outside of Turkey from time to time, especially those located in Europe and Australia.
