[ BY M A R TA J I M É N E Z - L U T T E R ] Rambler Metals and Mining struck gold at its Ming Mine in Baie Verte, Newfoundland in 2004 when it began its exploration campaign searching for base and precious metals. The Ming Mine is an underground volcanic massive sulfide style copper deposit with anomalously high gold grades, PROFILE Rambler Metals and Mining PLC. | Headquarters: Baie Verte, Newfoundland and Labrador Employees: 143 | Specialty: Copper and gold mining allowing the small company to become a mid-size mine developer in a short period of time. Copper and gold pricing fluctuate with economic trends. “When the economy softens, gold tends to be a bit of a safe haven,” explains Peter Mercer, vice president of corporate development for Rambler. Rambler has the ability to generate profit with its Ming Mine’s play on copper and gold, giving it an edge over other junior mining companies in the sector. “RAB has the ability to seamlessly switch between pouring gold doré to producing copper concentrate with a gold credit, and vice versa,” General Manager Tim Sanford stated. To cement its position in the mining industry, in 2009, the company bought a gold hydrometallurgical mill at Nugget Pond situated about 25 miles from the Mine site. In 2011, a copper floatation circuit was built beside the gold mill to handle the copper rich massive sulfides. This new expansion allows Rambler to process all ore from the Ming Mine, as well as surrounding deposits. 143
