New Colombia Resources Inc. (“New Colombia” or the “Company”) is a publicly traded resource company listed on the OTC under the symbol “NEWC”. The Company is focused on the acquisition and development of high quality metallurgical coal properties in Colombia, considered one of the most attractive emerging markets. With an estimated US$378 billion in gross domestic product in 2013, it became the third largest economy in Latin America and is growing 4% to 6% per year. Colombia has the largest coal reserves in Latin America and is the fourth largest coal producer in the world. Total coal production decreased by 4% in 2013 to 85.5 million tonnes. Coal producers aim to increase coal output in 2015. Colombia privatized its coal sector in 2004 and is committed to investing in infrastructure to support increased mining.
We are focusing on our La Tabaquera coal and rock project (the “Project”) located in the Municipality of Guaduas, approximately 100 kilometers northwest of Bogota. This Project’s haul roads are easily accessible either by National Highway I-50 or the new Ruta del Sol. The property is within 50kM of the Magdalena River, providing easy transport to terminals in Barranquilla, Santa Marta or Cartagena for export. The Magdalena River is being dredged to allow cargo from La Dorada which in close proximity to their mine.
Recently we purchased a rock crushing plant with processing capacity of over 100 m3/hour of aggregates which is expected to be operating in by August 2015. Demand is strong for building material in Colombia since many illegal mines have been closed as new construction and infrastructure projects come online. Construction of the final sector of the Ruta del Sol road project was approved to begin. It will consist of tunnels and bridges within 5 kilometers or our coal and rock mine. This allows us to supply road builders with aggregates, and then use these roads to move our coal to export terminals. We intend to fund our coal operations with the cash flow generated from the sale of processed aggregates.
An “Estimate of Probable Reserves and Grantable Potential of Coal at La Tabaquera Mine” report was prepared on behalf of New Colombia in September 2011. The report estimated reserves for La Tabaquera Project of 13,073,935 cubic meters for a total of 16,996,116 tonnes of bituminous coal (non JORC compliant), with 70% being metallurgical hard coking coal and 30% thermal coal.
Based on the high quality of our coal, we expect to sell at a premium to other domestic coals. We believe our mines have Blue Gem coal, only found along the Kentucky Tennessee border in the U.S. and Colombia. This coal is unique because of its low ash and high carbon content. It is in high demand for the silicon and silicon based alloy market. Beginning in 2015, New Colombia will concentrate tunnel mining its hard coking coal seams first. The Company expects to mine 20,000 tonnes of hard coking coal per month.
We own the mining title and land where we will commence operations. Our Mining Plan of Operations (PTO) was approved in December 2013 by the Agencia Nacional de Mineria (ANM). In April 2013 we applied for an environmental license which we expect to be issued soon.

The results are available on the Coal Specifications page of the company's new website, http://www.newcolombiaresources.com.
The samples taken by SGS in June were analyzed by SGS Minerals Services in Barranquilla, Colombia on July 11, 2013. Of the 9 samples analyzed, 7 were very high quality coal and 2 were lower quality coal. The Company is extremely pleased with the first two samples which showed High Grade (HG) anthracite values with an 80% fixed carbon content, .64% sulfur, and 9.5% ash. The company is not satisfied with the lower quality results of 2 samples and is waiting for a formal report from SGS to determine the locations and extraction method of these samples.
New Colombia Resources believes the majority of their coal has a coking coal to semi-anthracite rank. A paper titled Coal Resources of the Americas published by the American Geological Society stated "middle Guaduas is characterized by thick beds of shale that are subdivided by sandstone and good concentrations of mineable coal beds which make this unit the best coal producer." The paper goes on to say that "thermo metamorphic action changed the rank of the coal beds in Guaduas from bituminous to meta-anthracite." About SGS
