In fact, the Carmichael Mine is located a long way inland at 22°08'S, 146°27'E in the Central Queensland resources area of the Galilee Basin, nowhere near the coast or the Great Barrier Reef.

Since 2010, Adani has worked closely with the Traditional Owners of the land on which the Carmichael Mine is located, the Wangan and Jagalingou, Juru, Birriah and Jangga people. In 2016 the Wangan and Jagalingou people voted 294 to 1 in favour of an Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) with Adani.

The Carmichael Mine will benefit the local Indigenous people by providing a minimum of $250 million investment in Indigenous business development and contracting. In addition, the mine itself has an Indigenous employment target of at least 7.5% and a minimum Indigenous trainee target of 10%.

Coal mining is one of Australia’s most important industries. From Queensland to Tasmania and NSW to WA it helps support communities and creates jobs.

Local graziers and farmers will always have priority with regards to water access on the Suttor River. Adani is only allowed to take water from the river when it is in flood, only after farmers and other local users have taken what they need first and only when the flow rate is higher than 2.592ML per day.

Our Groundwater Dependent Ecosystem Management Plan (GDEMP) has been assessed by CSIRO and Geoscience Australia and approved by the State and Federal Government. The GDEMP protects the Doongmabulla Springs and the various species it supports.

The Carmichael Mine will create jobs for the people of Queensland. We will not use 457 visas to bring in overseas workers and there will be no automation. We will create jobs at the mine itself and in supporting industries locally and across the state.
