  • On 21 July 2006 Arian was admitted to trading on Toronto’s TSX Venture Exchange.
  • Arian currently has 12 mineral concessions in Mexico - the world largest silver producing country - covering 1,493 hectares. Calicanto is the most advanced of Arian’s 12 existing concessions, the majority of which are brownfield sites where there has been significant silver mining activity in the past, thus reducing the exploration risk.

Dragon Group Holdings and Endeavour Group have established track records of following through from investment in exploration to financing full scale production.
  • Arian was founded by Jim Williams, CEO, who has over 20 years experience in exploration, project construction and mining worldwide.
