Colombia mining watch: coke exports, Quebradona, Risaralda agreement

Metallurgical coke was Colombia’s sixth biggest export in H1, with sales abroad reaching US$534mn, a 71% year-on-year increase.

According to coal producers’ federation Fenalcarbón, the increase was driven by higher prices, which have exceeded US$480/t FOB.

Colombia is the world’s third largest exporter of metallurgical coke after China and Poland. Exports average 3Mt/y and this year are expected to reach 3.8Mt.

The coke is produced in Cundinamarca, Boyacá and Norte de Santander departments.

Quebradona is located in the municipality of Jericó, in the southwest of Antioquia department.
