Columbia Coal Mine Process Brief Introduction

Columbia Coal Mining Project
Columbia Coal Mining Project

The coal mining project is the largest operation in Latin America, Carbones del Cerrejón Norte. The coal project was developed by a joint venture between the Colombian state organisation, Carbones de Colombia (Carbocol) and Intercor, a subsidiary of the US energy company, ExxonMobil.

After topsoil stripping, overburden is drilled, blasted and loaded out either to permanent waste dumps or for backfill. Coal seams are prepared for mining by surface cleaning using rubber-tyred bulldozers then ripping or drilling and blasting in harder material. The big coal then was crushed to –50mm in a two-stage crushing process. The coal crushing plant has a capacity of 3,500t/h with crushed coal being conveyed into the two loadout silos.

In the Colombia coal mining project, CGM has offered two-stages coal crushing plants. The core equipment are coal crushers which include PE jaw crushers and PC hammer crushers. All the coal crushers are adjustable in the input sizes, finished sizes and capacity.
