On June 13, the Adani Group-led multinational conglomerate company received the go-ahead to start construction of a controversial coal mine in Outback, Australia, after a state government approved a final permit on the ground water management.
Queensland's Department of Environment and Science (DES) said in a statement it had approved Adani's Groundwater Dependent Ecosystem Management Plan.
Adani has said that is ready to start construction "within days" of receiving the permit for its Carmichael mine that would produce 8-10 million tonnes of thermal coal a year and cost up to $1.5 billion. The company will ramp up production to 27.5 million tonnes at the mine.
Environmental activists have contested the project since it was first proposed eight years ago because of concerns about global warming and the potential impact of its port operations on the Great Barrier Reef. Carmichael is one of the world's biggest greenfield coal projects in recent years.(With inputs from Reuters)Subscribe to Moneycontrol Pro and gain access to curated markets data, exclusive trading recommendations, independent equity analysis, actionable investment ideas, nuanced takes on macro, corporate and policy actions, practical insights from market gurus and much more.
