About the Company

Rambler was founded in 2004 when Altius Minerals Corporation ("Altius"), a Newfoundland and Labrador based resource company, contributed to the Company's asset base an option to acquire and develop the Rambler property.

The Rambler property had been a former underground copper and gold producing property that ceased production when the deposit reached a then third party property boundary. This neighbouring property was subsequently consolidated before being brought into the Company. The Company now owns a 100% interest in the property.

The principal activity of the Group is carrying out development and exploration on the Rambler Property a mineral exploration property located on Newfoundland and Labrador's Baie Verte Peninsula.
