Colombian coal production is stalling after rains

Saturday, 10 Dec 2011

Rain in Colombia will stall coal production until early next month. Production in November, December and early January likely will be unchanged from last year, when flooding also hampered mining, National Federation of Coal Producers President Jaime Olivella said in a phone interview in Bogota.

Colombia, South America’s largest coal supplier, will produce 75 million tonnes to 80 million tonnes this year, according to Olivella. That figure is below a government forecast for 85 million tonnes of output.
