Additionally, to medical cannabis companies, New Colombia Resources wholly owns the Guaduas Metallurgical Coal Project they’ve been developing for the past several years. Metallurgical Coal was the top commodity for last year with consistent demand this year. More and more countries are turning to Colombia to source coal, due to its friendly business environment and port access to both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
New Colombia has the work permit approved by the Agencia Nacional de Mineria (ANM) for both coal and raw building material, but is waiting the additional of raw building materials to their environmental license for coal. They added raw building materials to their application to supply the surging local need for rock products close to Bogota in anticipation of the new International Airport being built and mega highway projects close by. They will first begin crushing rock for the local road projects that have significantly increased the value of their greenfield properties, and will move much needed metallurgical coal to the international markets.
The Company received confirmation last week from the environmental agency (CAR) that the license was under review, for a copy of the notice, visit, https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxSKP5j2FlseaTdiSy1RZWJQWkU
