According to the company’s most recent release, New Colombia Resources entered into a joint venture agreement in November 2016 to operate metallurgical coal Concession Contract JC3-15231 located in the municipality of Zulia approximately 25 km from Cucuta, Colombia.
Apparently, engineers have been onsite since early December updating the Work Plan and Environmental Management Plan for a 10,000 tonne/month operation and have determined that production costs will drop from US $30 to $25/tonne at this capacity. And as the Company gears up to bring this mine to production, they plan to source coal for the first shipment in April and are analyzing several proposals from suppliers that provide significant margins based on the price agreed with ASI.
Management notes that, once the San Gregorio mine is producing 10,000 tonnes/month, they will still need to source the remaining balance of coal needed to fulfill the contract.
Finally, the company recently announced that Sannabis, their medical marijuana segment, plans to provide an update in coming days. That could be a catalyst for this stock.
