The Cerrejon mine is a joint-venture between Anglo American, BHP Billiton and Glencore. The mine is the largest in Colombia with production forecast to reach 40 Mtpa. Cerrejon utilises typical truck-and-shovel mining methods and mostly ships a crushed product via its wholly-owned railroad and port facilities. The mine has also a heavy media coal preparation plant that is used to recover coal from the interface material remaining after mining. Cerrejon is historically one the lowest cost producers in Colombia, holding the lowest transportation and port costs among all Colombian coal producers within our dataset.
