At the start of the year, New Columbia Resources Inc signed a $90 million purchase agreement for metallurgical coal with American Steel Industries of Philadelphia under a joint venture with a Chinese government-owned giant in the commodities and steel trading segment. This company has been exporting steel from China for the past 12 years and is one of its largest steel exporters.
Under the terms of the contract, some of the coal will be supplied by the joint venture’s Mina San Gregorio in Cucuta, Colombia while the remainder will be sourced from third-party producers then stored at New Columbia Resources Inc’s coal yard in Cucuta with a 50,000 ton capacity and industrial scale, then trucked or barged to a port on the Caribbean coast for shipment to South China. This could mean significant revenue potential for the company, especially since metallurgical coal has seen a bullish wave since last year on rising demand and increasing orders.
New Columbia Resources Inc is also delving into the cannabis industry, which analysts also dubbed as the next growth sector for the next few years. After all, the November 8 vote to legalize the use of medical or recreational marijuana in several US states could bring the market up to $20 billion by 2020.
