Transportation, Logistics and Other Information
New Colombia Resources intends to sell their coal at the mine's gate unless they enter into off-take agreements. Upon proper financing, the Company plans to build or acquire river or rail loading facilities on the Magdalena River close to their mines. The coal will be trucked to these distribution centers, and then barged via the Magdalena River or by rail to terminals in Barranquilla, Santa Marta, or Cartagena for export. Initially they will use existing logistics providers while their transportation projects are being developed. After the rail projects and the "Road to the Sun" project are completed, New Colombia Resources will have one of a few metallurgical coal mines in the world with river, rail, and road access to coal export terminals on both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
