Adani Mining’s Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems Management Plan has been finalised and approved by the Queensland Government.
The QRC and the resources sector embraces renewable energy, not only as a supplier of electricity for operations, but as a market for the coal and metals mined.
Resource exports delivered over AUS$65 billion of the AUS$85.2 billion total exports of Queensland goods in the 12 months to the end of April 2019.
The finalisation of the Black Finch Management Plan is great news for jobs and stronger regional communities in central Queensland.
The QRC will now ask its member companies to consider the offer along with their request for the resources industry to contribute AUS$70 million to a Regional Infrastructure Fund over three years.
According to the QRC, there is no point to a trade mission to any of Queensland’s valued trading markets while there is uncertainty that new taxes will be imposed on resources.
Adani has meet with the Department of Environment and Science and the Coordinator General to put a timeline on finalising the outstanding management plans for the Carmichael coal project.
