Cerrejon coal mine

Report summary

The Cerrejon mine is a joint venture between Anglo American, BHP Billiton and Glencore located in Colombia's La Guajira Department. Until last year, the operation was the largest in the country with 2019 production at 26 Mt. However, production fell to 12 Mt in 2020 as the mine faced a variety of challenges: permitting delays, lawsuits and blockades from local communities, a 91-day strike, pandemic related production curtailments, speculations around potential ownership changes, and disappointing margins on low market prices.
