Adani confirms October
Indian miner says it won’t wait for financial closure or clearance in the Land Court.
Wednesday 30 August 2017  

Adani has confirmed work will ramp up on the rail, mine, airport and accommodation facilities required for the Carmichael mine in October, irrespective of unfinalised funding arrangements, and any outstanding legal objections from native title claimant Adrian Burragubba.

Adani spokesman Ron Watson told media this week significant work was about to begin on the main elements of the project.

“This includes the rail line, the airport, some access roads and the update of the mining camp,” he said.

“Once we’ve got the airport, then we need FIFO.

“In terms of the headquarters in Townsville, employment is continuing to ramp up and the work will require some of them to move out and go on site.

“About 150 [workers] will start on site, which we’re still employing for, then we will start ramping up by the middle of next year.”

The announcement comes just a fortnight after Downer Edi advertised for highly experienced staff to begin work on site at Adani’s Carmichael project North west of Clermont.

In 2014, Downer received two non-binding “Letters of Award” from Adani advising that it intended to use them as both the primary operations and tier one contractor for construction of the Carmichael mine.

However, Landholders who live along the recently created State Development Area set aside for the proposed Galilee to Abbot Point railway line told the ABC they have heard very little and remain in Limbo.

“Those landholders have been sitting waiting for something to take place,” Grazier John Burnett said.

“They haven't received compensation that I'm aware of and they're still in limbo.

“Until the project actually happens those landholders are left in limbo, not knowing how or when or where they can develop their properties.”

Adani has yet to make a firm decision as to whether it will establish a FIFO hub in Rockhampton or Townsville.
