Rugby Mining Limited believes that building solid, long-lasting relationships with its stakeholders in the community is of utmost importance. In fact, we recognize that many exploration and mining projects cannot survive without the support of its local communities. Rugby endeavors to be a positive influence and presence in every community where it has projects. Not only does Rugby value environmentally responsible exploration - we strive to be socially responsible. As we move forward with exploration initiatives, we intend to develop social programs designed to assist and benefit the people living in the community.

In mid-2013 the Company successfully negotiated of a “Consulta Previa” (CP) agreement with local Cocomacia communities for the Cobrasco Project in Colombia. The CP provides immediate exploration access to the Cobrasco concession area for a period of ten years. The CP is broadly based and provides for economic assistance to the local community as well as social development programs. The CP consultation process was carried out by Rugby, Cocomacia and local community leaders under the supervision of the Colombian Ministry of the Interior. This is the first successful mineral exploration CP to be carried out in Choco Province, Colombia.
