ADANI Group, In­dia’s largest min­ing con­glom­er­ate, said yes­ter­day that they will go ahead with the de­vel­op­ment of Aus­tralia’s largest ever coal mine, in a multi-bil­lion-dol­lar project in north­ern Aus­tralia. Gau­tum Adani, chair­per­son of the min­ing gi­ant, will over­see the con­struc­tion of Aus­tralia’s largest ther­mal coal mine in Queens­land, with pre-con­struc­tion ex­pected to com­mence in 3 months’ time. The Carmichael project will be one of the big­gest coal mines in the world and is fore­cast to cost a to­tal of $A21.7 bil­lion (R206.6bn), mark­ing what Adani called “one of the largest sin­gle in­fra­struc­ture and job-cre­at­ing de­vel­op­ments in Aus­tralia’s re­cent his­tory”. – Xin­hua
