Located in the department of Cesar, Colombia, Drummond primary mission is the exploration, mining, and export of coal.

From 1995 to present, we have owned and operated mines between the municipalities of El Paso, La Jagua de Ibirico, Chiriguaná, also known as Mina Pribbenow, and La Loma coal project. Drummond Ltd. has also worked with the local Colombian government to build a fully functional international port and renovate the rail system. Today, we own and manage roughly 2 billion tons of reserves in La Loma, El Descanso, Rincόn Hondo, Similoa, and Cerrolargo, the last three are in the process of environmental licensing. In 2011, we shipped approximately 23 million tons of coal to customers in more than 30 countries worldwide. We are proud to be identified as a significant producer of compliance coal, which meets the Phase II low-sulfur requirements of the 1990 Amendments to the Clean Air Act.

As a Colombia based company, our commitment to Colombia is steadfast. Every day, on every project, at every level of Drummond Ltd., we consider the impact our actions have on our employees, our communities and our environment. We strive to improve the education, health, and well being of our employees and their families. We invest heavily in community initiatives, work closely with the local government, and design and implement programs for the development and benefit of our communities. We continually strive to control and mitigate the impacts of mining, transportation, and shipment of coal as we develop and implement innovative sustainability techniques.
