PALM BEACH, Florida, February 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
As President Trump and the new administration begin to implement their new policies and plans to stabilize the energy & mining industries as part of 'An America First Energy Plan', it's clear that Fossil Fuels such as oil, coal and more will be poised to benefit due in large to Trump's pro-fossil fuel stance. Energy, Mining and Coal companies taking advantage of the latest sector momentum include New Colombia Resources, Inc. (OTC: NEWC), CONSOL Energy Inc. (NYSE: CNX), Cloud Peak Energy Inc. (NYSE: CLD), Peabody Energy Corporation (OTC: BTUUQ) and Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. (NYSE: CLF).
New Colombia Resources, Inc.

Yesterday, the Company filed a Form 8K with the Securities and Exchange Commission exhibiting the ANM's Resolution AUTO GET No. 000001. Now that the PTO has been approved, the company will begin negotiations with the road contractors in the area. Last year, the National Infrastructure Agency (ANI) announced the approval of the 23 Km that is needed to complete the 1000 Km Ruta del Sol road project, the largest in South America. New Colombia will supply building material to build the Ruta del Sol, then use this new road to move their premium hard coking coal to export terminals on the Caribbean coast.

The mega project is complete except for this stretch which will start with tunnels and bridges that are between 200 meters to 3 Km from New Colombia's mining concession in Guaduas.
"I would like to personally thank the ANM and the Office of the Presidency of Colombia for their assistance in this approval, we will not disappoint," stated John Campo, President of New Colombia Resources, Inc.
Approval of the Work Permit is a major milestone since now they can proceed with mining activities once the local environmental authority (CAR) recognizes the addition of Gravel and issues an environmental permit for both Gravel and Coal. An application for the environmental permit has been active for the past few years but was suspended in anticipation of the addition of Gravel so the Company will be issued one license for both. The Company will personally present the approval resolution to the CAR and expects issuance very quickly since the CAR has already performed a site visit and spent many hours on their case.
New Colombia has begun preparations to set up their wholly owned rock crushing plant on site to begin Gravel operations with a projected 1000 m3/day output. They may add another plant to satisfy local demand for building material.
