Colombia backs output expansion plans at Anglo-operated coal mine

The Colombian government is in talks with stakeholders to resolve all issues blocking the expansion of the Anglo American Plc-operated Cerrejon coal project near the country's Caribbean coast after a court recently endorsed a decision to halt works to divert a river near the mine, Bloomberg News reported Jan. 19.

The planned expansion will allow the mine to boost output to over 90 million tonnes of coal in 2017, Colombia's mines and energy minister, German Arce, told the newswire in an interview.

The mine produced 85.5 million tonnes in 2015 and increased output to about 88 million tonnes in 2016 thanks to coal's higher prices.

BHP Billiton Group, Glencore Plc and Anglo American each own a 33.33% stake in the project.
