THE TARGETS


The Cobraso and Comita Projects are located 100 kilometres southwest of Medellin in the Choco Province of western Colombia. These highly prospetive projects are found in an emerging yet under-explored district that hosts exciting geological potential. 

The Mabuhay Gold-Copper Project was a major historical epithermal vein style high-grade gold mine which was one one of the Philippine's highest grade producers.

THE TARGETS


The Cobraso and Comita Projects are located 100 kilometres southwest of Medellin in the Choco Province of western Colombia. These highly prospetive projects are found in an emerging yet under-explored district that hosts exciting geological potential. 

The Mabuhay Gold-Copper Project was a major historical epithermal vein style high-grade gold mine which was one one of the Philippine's highest grade producers.  

 

PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: COBRASCO AND COMITA, COLOMBIA

Rugby owns 100% of the Cobrasco project, subject to a 1% NSR and has an option to earn up to 60% of the adjacent Comita project in western Colombia. Both projects host undrilled large scale porphyry copper-molybdenum-gold targets which were recognised during a joint German-Colombian government sponsored exploration program conducted in the mid-1980’s. No systematic exploration or drilling has been conducted since that time. The final permit required for Cobrasco drilling is outstanding and further studies are proposed.

 

 

The Company is currently working closely with the Colombian Mining Association to foster strong relationships with stakeholders and obtain industry related advice necessary for approaching a future permit application process. The Colombian Mining Association is also working diligently with mineral exploration and mining companies, including Rugby, to promote educational information about the benefits of a developed copper industry to the people and government of Colombia. Copper is believed to be a viable future source for jobs and significant government revenues, similar to neighboring countries like Chile and Peru.
