Company Profile. InterAmerican Coal is a leading supplier and producer of highquality thermal coal, metallurgical coal, and coke from South America. Through integration of coal mining, trading, marketing, and logistics, we have become a dominant competitor in the Colombian coal industry.
Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content and since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine is a 39pit39, and

Coal Mineral in Colombia. Colombia is rich of minerals and energy resources. It has the largest coal reserves in Latin America, and is second to Brazil in hydroelectric39s coal output has increased consistently from 4 million tons in 1981 to 65.6 million tons in 2006, when it contributed 1.4 percent of the world39s coal production.
Despite recent struggles in the mining sector, Latin America continues to be an important destination for mining investment, exploration, development and equipment manufacturing.

Cerrejn is owned in equal parts by subsidiaries of the international mining companies BHP, Anglo American and Glencore. The mine produces over 32 million tonnes of thermal coal a year and has estimated reserves of over five billion tonnes . Unique in Colombia, the mine has an integrated railway line and shipping terminal, which gives increased efficiency and lower environmental impact.
However, coal will remain part of the export list or energy matrix for a few countries. Colombia is the largest coal producer, with 90 million tons per year, mostly for export, and it has more than 16 billion tons of coal reserves. Certainly, coal mining will remain in Colombias export list. The largest coal thermoelectric producers are
