Lydian International Ltd. is a diversified UK mineral exploration and development company, with expertise employing “first mover” strategies in international emerging environments.

Currently the Company is focused on Eastern Europe in the Western Balkans and the Caucasus regions, advancing a pipeline of highly prospective precious and base metal projects. In the Caucasus region Lydian is operating an exploration joint venture with Newmont Overseas Exploration Ltd. a subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation.

The Company’s two flagship projects are a newly discovered gold project at Armulsar in Armenia, and an advanced zinc, lead, silver and gold project at Drazhnje in Kosovo.
