Arian Silver Corporation is a silver exploration company listed on London’s AIM and “PLUS”, on Toronto’s TSX Venture Exchange and on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Arian is active in Mexico, the world’s largest silver producing country. The Company’s main projects are the Calicanto and San Jose projects in Zacatecas State and the Tepal project in Michoacán State. Part of Arian’s forward-looking strategy lies in the envisaged use of large scale mechanised mining techniques over wider mineralised structures, which reduces the overall operating cost per ounce of silver, and to build up National Instrument 43-101 compliant resources.

Arian was founded by Jim Williams, Chief Executive Officer, and Tony Williams, Chairman, who together have over 50 years experience in exploration, project construction and mining worldwide.
