The controversial underground and open cut mine by Adani Mining Pty Ltd has been re-approved by the Federal Environment Minister under s 130(1) and s 133 of Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Cth). Approval for the associated rail link has also been granted. The proposed Carmichael coal mine was subject to a successful Federal Court Challenge earlier this year.

The proposal has been reapproved this week with additional compliance requirements. Reasons for the Minister’s re-approval decision can be found here:
