Rugby is an exploration company conducting ‘discovery stage’ exploration activities on a portfolio of copper, gold and silver targets in Colombia, Argentina and Chile. The Colombian Cobrasco project is located in the western Cordillera belt which hosts large-scale copper-molybdenum mines in Chile, Peru and Panama (and more recent major projects discovered in Ecuador). This belt has not been the subject of modern exploration in Colombia. Rugby seeks to advance the Cobrasco copper project to bring economic benefits to the western region of Colombia. The discovery of significant copper resources will be necessary for the world to transition from fossil fuels to advanced electrification.
The Company benefits from the experience of its directors and its management, a team that has either been directly responsible for world-class mineral discoveries or is part of the management teams responsible for such discoveries. Earlier companies under their leadership included Exeter Resource Corporation and Extorre Gold Mines Limited, which held major projects in South America. These companies were taken over by Goldcorp (Newmont) and Yamana respectively.
