El Hatillo is located in the south-central region of the Cesar Department. In August 2015, the US firm Murray Energy Corp. acquired Goldman Sachs' coal assets in Colombia, Colombia Natural Resources (CNR). The deal included La Francia, El Hatillo and Cerrolargo Sur mining properties as well as a stake in Fenoco and the Rio Cordoba port concession. We expect El Hatillo to resume operations in 2017 as CNR is negotiating an access to Glencore's Puerto Nuevo port spare capacity. The El Hatillo mine produces an unwashed bituminous thermal coal destined for the export market.
