Carmichael Mine Scheme Reaches Significant Milestone

The $21.7 billion Carmichael coal project has passed a significant milestone with agreements reached with all landholders, State Parliament heard today.

Minister for State Development and Minister for Natural Resources and Mines, Dr Anthony Lynham, told Parliament that mine proponent Adani now had 16 permits and approvals at local, state and federal level, including six primary approvals.

The port element of the mine, rail and port project, the expansion of the Abbot Point coal port near Bowen, also had progressed, Dr Lynham told the House.

“My department has advised that it is awaiting confirmation from Adani that the agreement can now be filed in accordance with the Mineral Resources Act,” Lynham said.

“Once that occurs I will be able to consider the application for the mining leases in the same way as for any other project.­

“The other milestone the mine, rail and port project has achieved is the last key state-based approval for dredging for the Abbot Point expansion.

“The next step for Abbot Point is for Adani to finalize approvals for the rail in-loading facilities, onshore stockpile yards and offshore wharves and this is now underway.”

Dr Lynham said that the progress had been achieved while meeting the Palaszczuk Government’s commitment to protect the Great Barrier Reef.
