Coal production in Colombia drops 13.4 percent

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Colombia's coal production fell 13.4 percent in the first half of 2013 to 40.5 million tonnes, the National Mining Agency said.

The agency attributes the drop to strike actions and logistics disruption.

The country's coal sector has had a turbulent year so far with a month-long strike at the biggest miner Cerrejon in February and another which began on July 23 and is still continuing at smaller rival Drummond.
