Cerrejón is the world's largest export open pit coal mining operation. Coal production capacity is estimated in 22 million metric tons per year. Open pit mining is an operation that starts with the cleaning of the surface and the careful withdrawal of the topsoil layer, which is stored for future rehabilitation of the involved lands.
