• Licences located in an established mining region, with existing infrastructure in place.

About Colombia
Colombia was recently awarded an investment grade rating by Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitches with the ratings agencies noting the improved macroeconomic credibility and security conditions. Similarly, the World Bank ranks Colombia 5th (out of 183 countries) in their protecting investors index.
Colombia is in the enviable position of being the only South American country bordering both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans

The proposed transaction provides Epic with the opportunity to join BHP, Anglo American, Xstrata, Glencore and Drummond in the growing Colombian coal market which is the world’s fourth largest exporter of coal and has the largest identified coal resource base in South America. In 2011, Colombia’s overall coal production was 85.8 million tonnes (an increase of 15.4 percent over 2010) and coal exports were up 16 percent at a record 79.2 million tonnes. Recent media suggests Colombia expects to increase coal exports to approximately 150Mt by 2020.
