CORAL SPRINGS, Florida, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Mining & Materials Companies take steps to expand operations through acquisitions of assets, explore resources and structural changes internally: New Colombia Resources, Inc. (OTC: NEWC), CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE: CX), Eagle Materials Inc. (NYSE: EXP), Peabody Energy Corp. (NYSE: BTU) and Arch Coal Inc. (NYSE: ACI)
New Colombia Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: NEWC), a U.S. company with coal and other resource assets in Colombia, is pleased to announce they have received an intent to purchase up to 600 m3 per day of aggregates from their mine. If accepted by New Colombia Resources, the company will enter a formal contract. This intent to purchase is for at least $ 675,000 or more per month depending on the lab results of the material. The approximate price for gravel in Bogota is US$ 45/m3 and $ 60/m3 for shale. The company has mountains of these building materials
New Colombia Resources is focused on bringing their coal mining operations online while taking advantage of the high demand for aggregates which are abundant on their mining title in Colombia. They have been in negotiations with several interested buyers for raw building materials and will make a decision on the final buyer when the test results of the aggregates are finalized by the laboratory doing the analysis. The Company feels they are in a dominant position since rock quarries in and around Bogota have been closed by the environmental authorities limiting supply, increasing prices, and availing rock mining equipment. The company's goal is to sell material to end users and expects to have several more purchase orders.

Peabody Energy Corp. (NYSE: BTU) recently issued the following statement on carbon target: We believe that everyone deserves access to low-cost electricity, and everyone wants the air to be a bit cleaner every day. Advanced coal-fueled electricity is essential to these twin goals. It's no surprise that coal's market share of U.S. generation has expanded greatly in the past two years, given its role as the most reliable and affordable baseload fuel. During the bitter-cold winter months, coal provided a stunning 90 percent of America's increased electricity needs. More broadly, the world continues to turn toward coal. It has been the fastest growing major fuel over the past decade and is expected to surpass oil as the world's largest energy source in coming years. Today, American policy should be guided not by a modeled crisis, but by the real crisis of more than one of every three U.S. households that qualify for energy assistance. Energy inequality in the U.S. is an enormous challenge… and access to low-cost energy is a basic need. Yet proposed regulations will make energy more scarce and more expensive without any material improvement in emissions.

"West Elk's employees act responsibly day in and day out while supplying essential energy to the world." West Elk took home the state's "best of best" environmental award for leading the way in stewardship and pollution prevention in the coal sector. West Elk has operated for more than 14 years with perfect SMCRA environmental compliance in Colorado.
