Cerrejón follows the guidelines of the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation (IFC). Cerrejón conceives of resettlement as an opportunity for dialogue with the communities, for improving their standard of living, and for the creation of social capital. We hope that the resettlement processes that we have been managing will strengthen the sustainable development of La Guajira.

The approach followed with this community has been different from the one applied with the other communities under resettlement process. Tamaquito II is an indigenous Wayuu group that has been recognized by the Ministry of the Interior and Justice (Res. 0047 of 24 December 2008).
The village of Patilla is located in the municipality of Barrancas, approximately nine kilometres from Hatonuevo, on the peninsula of La Guajira. Patilla belongs to the same cultural microregion to which the communities of Roche and Chancleta also belong. This means that the current inhabitants share many ethnohistorical characteristics.
The "Las Casitas" hamlet was originally identified with a settlement of two wattle-and-daub houses, with roofs made from banana leaves, which were constructed at the beginning of the 20th century.
The Roche community is situated on the right bank (downstream) of the Ranchería River, between the river itself and where the Serranía del Perijá first rises to the south of the Municipality of Barrancas, the administrative centre for the area.
The community of Chancleta is located in the municipality of Barrancas, approximately nine kilometres from the municipality of Hatonuevo. Historically, the zone where the community is now located originally comprised eight families that settled in the area at the beginning of the 20th century.
