Win for future Qld coal mines as Abbot Point gains expansion approval

Future coal mines in Queensland are expected to benefit from federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt’s December decision to approve the revised expansion plans for the Abbot Point coal terminal.

The proposed expansion will add 70-million tonnes a year to Abbot Point’s capacity of 50-million tonnes a year and will cater for additional coal from the Galilee basin, including Adani Mining’s proposed Carmichael mine.
