Proceedings brought against Indian group Adani’s 11-billion-ton Carmichael coal mine project, from a member of the Wangan and Jagalingou people earlier this year, have been dismissed by the Federal Court. The group argued that a determination made in April 2015 by the National Native Title Tribunal, relating to the proposed granting of two mining leases, was made incorrectly. It argued the approval of mining leases would extinguish native title over parts of their lands.
