Indian energy giant Adani has urged the Australian government to give its controversial coal mine project "a fair go" and indicated that the opposition Labor Party would not derail the proposed billion dollar project if it comes to power
A top Australian court dismissed an environmental group's plea for overturning the government's approval to the controversy-hit 21.7 billion dollar project
Approvals gave Adani permission to mine coal reserves estimated at 11 billion tonnes and to build roads, workshops, power lines and pipelines
Shares in Adani jumped as much as 13 percent in Mumbai on news of the reissued permit
Minister Anthony Lynham said his government would do everything it could, short of providing funding, to promote the Galilee Basin projects
Indian conglomerate GVK Group faces an October deadline to pay a final $560 million to billionaire Australian miner Gina Rinehart for coal assets it bought in 2011 and has yet to develop in Australia's outback.<br />
Australian government today cleared the proposed $16.5 billion Carmichael coal mine project of the Indian conglomerate Adani Mining in the Galilee Basin in central Queensland.<br />
Mumbai-listed Adani Enterprises' Carmichael coal mine and rail project in the untapped Galilee Basin is perhaps the largest in the world.
