A CSL Group bulker prevented from docking in Panama due to anti-mining protests is seeking an alternative discharge port.

The temperature of the coal cargo on board the Canadian-controlled, 71,000-dwt CSL Tarantau (built 2013) has been rising since it had to abort a berthing in Punta Rincon on Thursday.

There has been no AIS update from the panamax ship since 18 November.
