"I am very pleased to welcome Bob McGuire to the Rambler team. A resident of Newfoundland with international experience in underground mining, Bob will be a tremendous asset to the continued success of the Ming Mine. His knowledge will be invaluable as we look to consolidate the Company and then progress towards expansion. The appointment of an experienced manager speaks volumes about the Company's growing reputation and ability to attract quality talent in a competitive labour market.
Tim Sanford has been the General Manager since the early planning stages of the Ming Mine. Under Tim and his team's stewardship the Ming Mine has reached commercial production; which is a significant accomplishment. On behalf of the Board I'd like to thank Tim and all the employees for this tremendous effort.
The new position of Vice President of Technical Services has been created to further our growth plans as Rambler strives to become the leading mine operator and resource developer in Atlantic Canada. Many of these growth opportunities will require technical evaluation. Tim, with his 20 years of management experience as a qualified Mining Engineer, is well suited to lead these studies.
Rambler's success to date has been founded on the quality of our team. These senior management changes will enhance our ability to deliver as we continually improve and grow our business. Thus creating additional value for our shareholders."
