The independent assessment released on 9 April by CSIRO and Geoscience Australia clears the way for the Queensland Government to finalise the remaining approvals for Adani’s Carmichael mine and infrastructure project.
These approvals should take place as soon as possible so the mine can start providing highly paid, highly skilled jobs and supporting businesses across regional Queensland.
Australia will benefit from thousands of new regional jobs and long-term investment in the mine and rail infrastructure in Queensland.
Through mining taxes and royalties, the Carmichael mine will generate billions of dollars for taxpayers over decades to fund nurses, teachers, police, hospitals, roads and other services and infrastructure for Queensland families and communities.
The mine will also open up the North Galilee Basin for further development – an exciting new phase in Australia’s rich history of mining exploration and development which has made our nation a global mining powerhouse.
The remaining Federal environmental approvals are to be met by Adani Australia before production commences.
