LONDON, ENGLAND and BAIE VERTE, NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/13 -- Rambler Metals and Mining plc, the Newfoundland copper and gold producer, explorer and developer (TSX VENTURE: RAB)(AIM: RMM) ("Rambler" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that on 30 April 2013 a payment of CAD$500,000 was made to Sprott Resource Lending Partnership ('Sprott'). The payment reduces the outstanding balance on the Company's recently renewed credit facility to CAD$ 6.5 million.
Further reductions to this outstanding facility are planned over the coming months, with the intention of having the facility repaid by the end of calendar year 2013. Additional information on the loan arrangement with Sprott can be found in a Company press release dated 27 March 2013.
Norman Williams, CFO, commented:
"This payment demonstrates Rambler's commitment to paying off its debts. With the winter season now behind us, we are beginning to see increases in the amount of high grade copper concentrate produced from the operation. With further incremental operational improvements we are optimistic that more free cash flow can be generated, allowing us to be more aggressive with our debt repayment schedule."
