December 19, 2017 ~ Rambler Metals and Mining has been ramping up operations. In November the company’s Nugget Pond milling facility processed 33,870 tonnes of ore from the Ming Mine, 1,221 metric tonnes per day on average.
Increased activity has led Rambler to move towards expanding its tailing facility at Nugget Pond, located on the Baie Verte Peninsula. Rambler says the expansion is needed to make room for tailings from current and future mining operations.
The company stated November’s performance represents record monthly throughput.
Ore brought to surface at the mine itself averaged 1,140 mtpd during November. Plans are to produce an average of 1,125 mtpd during December and January as the company completes the final upgrades to the ventilation system, allowing for increased activity.
In November the company produced 1,376 dry metric tonnes containing saleable metal of 374 tonnes of copper and 449 ounces of gold.
Norman Williams, President and CEO said:
“While we are nearing a significant milestone for the Company, this marks just the
beginning of the next phase of growth for Rambler. This deposit has the ability to sustain a high throughput over a long mine life, currently 20 years.”
