Why	
  Met	
  Coal?	
  

Coal	
  is	
  the	
  most	
  abundant	
  and	
  widely-­‐distributed	
  fossil	
  fuel	
  in	
  the	
  world.	
  	
  Coal	
  provides	
  27%	
  of	
  global	
  
primary	
  energy	
  needs	
  and	
  is	
  an	
  essen<al	
  fuel	
  for	
  steel	
  making	
  and	
  other	
  industrial	
  ac<vi<es.	
  

Coking	
  coal	
  markets	
  are	
  thriving	
  worldwide,	
  with	
  demand	
  dominated	
  by	
  Asia.	
  	
  Global	
  metallurgical	
  coal	
  
consump<on	
  is	
  expected	
  to	
  rise	
  from	
  approximately	
  1.0	
  billion	
  tons	
  in	
  2010	
  to	
  a	
  projected	
  1.6	
  billion	
  tons	
  
in	
  2020,	
  due	
  to	
  economic	
  development,	
  popula<on	
  growth	
  and	
  rebounding	
  steel	
  markets,	
  	
  par<cularly	
  in	
  
China	
  and	
  India.	
  	
  However,	
  world	
  supply	
  con<nues	
  to	
  <ghten	
  and	
  prices	
  remain	
  high.	
  	
  	
  

Why	
  Colombia?	
  

Colombia	
  is	
  one	
  of	
  the	
  world’s	
  most	
  important	
  and	
  rapidly-­‐growing	
  coal	
  markets.	
  	
  It	
  is	
  the	
  world’s	
  10th	
  
largest	
  producer	
  and	
  5th	
  largest	
  exporter	
  of	
  coal.	
  	
  Colombia	
  has	
  over	
  7	
  billion	
  tons	
  of	
  proven	
  reserves	
  and	
  
17	
  billion	
  tons	
  of	
  poten<al	
  reserves.	
  	
  More	
  importantly,	
  Colombia	
  has	
  substan<al,	
  unexploited	
  
metallurgical	
  coal	
  resources	
  and	
  is	
  well-­‐situated	
  to	
  supply	
  the	
  en<re	
  world;	
  it	
  has	
  ports	
  on	
  both	
  the	
  Atlan<c	
  
and	
  Pacific	
  oceans	
  and	
  several	
  infrastructure	
  and	
  logis<cs	
  expansion	
  projects	
  underway.	
  

With	
  safety,	
  job	
  crea<on	
  and	
  economic	
  prosperity	
  the	
  primary	
  objec<ves	
  of	
  the	
  Colombian	
  government,	
  
the	
  coal	
  mining	
  industry	
  is	
  a	
  high	
  priority.	
  	
  It	
  is	
  a	
  substan<al	
  source	
  of	
  foreign	
  investment	
  and	
  employment,	
  
accounts	
  for	
  almost	
  half	
  of	
  the	
  country’s	
  mining	
  ac<vi<es	
  and	
  is	
  the	
  country’s	
  second	
  largest	
  na<onal	
  
exporta<on	
  product.	
  	
  Colombian	
  coal	
  produc<on	
  and	
  exports	
  are	
  projected	
  to	
  rise	
  76%	
  from	
  2009	
  to	
  2015.	
  	
  
The	
  Colombian	
  government	
  is	
  very	
  suppor<ve	
  of	
  the	
  coal	
  sector	
  and	
  provides	
  concessions	
  as	
  well	
  as	
  tax	
  
and	
  commercial	
  benefits	
  to	
  promote	
  investment	
  and	
  development	
  of	
  the	
  mining	
  sectors.	
  

Moreover,	
  the	
  Colombian	
  economy	
  is	
  growing	
  and	
  strengthening.	
  	
  S&P	
  raised	
  Colombia	
  to	
  investment	
  
grade,	
  the	
  World	
  Bank	
  ranks	
  Colombia	
  5th	
  in	
  regards	
  to	
  investor	
  protec<ons	
  and	
  the	
  Colombian	
  Ministry	
  of	
  
Mines	
  and	
  Energy	
  es<mates	
  $49	
  billion	
  will	
  be	
  invested	
  in	
  the	
  mining/energy	
  sector	
  from	
  2010	
  to	
  2015.

  plans

  These

more	
  environmentally-­‐friendly	
  than	
  the

  currently	
  in

  in	
  Colombia.	
  	
  They	
  also	
  will	
  produce	
  
consistent,	
  high-­‐quality	
  coke,	
  which	
  is	
  cri<cal	
  to
