Australia to Boost Coal Mining Sector Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Jul 29, 2014, 09:40 PM

The coal mining sector will soon enjoy a renewal in Australia. Prime Minister Tony Abbott of Australia has approved a deal that would allow an Indian company to build one of the world's largest coal mines in Queensland.

The BBC News reports that, "Australia has approved a $15.5bn (£9bn) coal project, despite concern over its potential environmental impact. The Carmichael project in Queensland would include one of the world's biggest coal mines and a new railway."

PM Abbott, a conservative leader, is fighting eco-extremists in the 'Land Down Under.'

According to the BBC, "It would be overseen by the Indian mining company Adani, which has already won approval to build a new coal port terminal at Abbott Point in Queensland."

Australia recently struck down a carbon tax.
