NEWFOUNDLAND The province used to have more mines than it does today, including the old Rambler copper-gold producer on the Baie Verte Peninsula. Today RAMBLER METALS & MINING is working on a 20-hole, 28,000-metre drilling program on the property. Highlights of the results received so far include 5.94 metres at 1.70% Cu and 7.3 g/t Au; 12.19 metres at 1.92% Cu and 0.19 g/t Au; and 7.01 metres at 1.62% Cu and 0.17 g/t Au.
On what is now called the Ming project, the drilling program is designed to test the large-scale potential of both the Ming massive sulphide horizon (MMS) and the Ming footwall zone (MFZ). It is important to note that hole spacings remain very wide (150-300 metres) as both the potential for additional parallel plunging orebodies and the plunge direction of known deposits to depth is being tested.
A discussion of the exploration work done by Rambler is posted on the company’s website (www.RamblerMines.com) in the News Release dated Aug. 4, 2005.
