Adani Mining had hoped that final approvals for its $2 billion Carmichael coal mine would have been finalised prior to Christmas 2018. However, it appears unlikely that approvals will be forthcoming before the federal election. Federal Environment Minister Melissa Price is yet to sign off on a groundwater management plan for the mine, while the Queensland Government is yet to approve a plan for the black-throated finch. The state government must also co-sign the groundwater management plan.
