The company, with a committed team, grew by acquiring one by one the work centers that are currently 8, in their order: Aurora 1, Aurora 2, Guacarí, Nuevo Horizonte 1, Acacias, Batey 1, Batey 2 and Nuevo Horizonte 2, which are now its greatest commercial strength.
Thus, we acquire some of our mines:
Thanks to the excellent vision, and taking giant steps to achieve the mission of growth of the company, Mr. Roberto manages to acquire his second work center on the estate plateaus in the verada of the same name in the municipality of Zulia, which he called Mina Aurora 2.
In 1998, the growth of the company is already noticeable and with own resources obtained based on a good administration, the company acquires the mine number 3, located in Finca Encerraderos, San Miguel village of the municipality of Sardinata known by the name of Guacarí Mine
The production and the excellent management of Mr. Roberto and his collaborators, including his right hand Mrs. Amparo Cáceres Ramírez, make the company recognized for its growth, and with commercialization businesses in the year 2000, more income is obtained, which they invest in the acquisition of their fourth project in the Municipality of Salazar, with the mine called Nuevo Horizonte 1.
With the goal of being large producers of coal in the department, and to fulfill some acquired marketing commitments, it became necessary to increase production and increase purchases from third parties, as it was also essential to acquire more production centers. Thus, as in 2002, the company invests part of its profits in the acquisition of a new mining project located in the village of San Pedro, municipality of Bochalema, in the mine called Las Acacias.
To meet the needs of customers, the company is committed to the supply of coking coal and, thinking about the production of coke, Don Juana of the municipality of Durania will invest in the area, acquiring in 2005 the Batey Mine.
With the mentality in the future production of coke, the company invests in a new project in the same area of Don Juana in the municipality of Durania acquiring the mine called Nuevo Horizonte 2.
