Since the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with Colombia was approved by the United States, commerce between Colombia and the U.S. has increased creating a need for more infrastructure projects to move cargo. Shipping containers from the ports of Barranquilla and Cartagena are mostly trucked 500 miles to the capital city of Bogota with over 7 Million people. The pre-feasibility study will identify shippers, with letters of intent, that need to move cargo to and from the ports. The railroad will move coal north and assorted goods south. Fuel prices in Colombia are over $ 5/gallon; this project will not only cut costs for shippers but significantly reduce traffic congestion and emissions related pollution. Over 6 MM tonnes of cargo is shipped from central Colombia to the ports each year, 3 MM tonnes of this is coal. The Company expects this amount to increase substantially once all the exploration projects in the area are developed.
“Central Colombia has some of the highest quality coal reserves in the world, our job is to not only get it out of the ground, but move it to the export terminals. One of the biggest problems coal companies face in Colombia is getting coal to the ports, producers in the region are trucking coal to the ports at a profit. We have identified several large multi-national companies that are exploring in our area that would benefit from this railroad. An ownership stake in a railroad should significantly increase our profit margins,” stated John Campo, President of New Colombia Resources, Inc.

Transportation, Logistics and Other Information
New Colombia Resources plans to build or acquire wholly owned river or rail loading facilities on the Magdalena River close to their mines. The coal will be trucked to these distribution centers, and then barged via the Magdalena River or by rail to terminals in Barranquilla, Santa Marta, or Cartagena for export. Initially they will use existing logistics providers while their transportation projects are being developed. After the rail projects and the "Road to the Sun" project are completed, New Colombia Resources will have one of a few metallurgical coal mines in the World with river, rail, and road access to coal export terminals on both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
