The Adani Coal Mine Project is gaining momentum in full force after the Queensland Environmental Department approved its plans for the massive coal mine to manage groundwater on and around Adani’ Galilee basic mine site this week.
The decision was one of the final steps the Adani mine required before commencing its two year construction.
If approved, the multinational company expects to commence work on its Carmichael mine within weeks, promising more than 8,000 jobs for the states central and northern faming regions. Adani Australia CEO, Lucas Dow, says that recruitment for the project is already gaining momentum. “We’ve been hiring for a considerable amount of time; we’ve been placing ads in north and central Queensland, and our contracting partners will be doing the same in the coming days.” Adani will be working full steam ahead to gain the further state and federal regulations they need before construction commences.
