A huge coal mine that will mostly produce exports for India is one step closer to completion.

Carmichael Mine Jobs Update – Adani mining jobs update here.

The draft terms of a reference for an environmental impact study (EIS) have been released for Adani Mining`s $16-24 billion Carmichael Coal and Rail Project proposal.

According to the Queensland government, the draft terms of reference detail the scope for the EIS.

The project will include the development of a greenfield open cut coal mine and as well as an underground mine.

Currently, the area to be developed is primarily taken up by cattle.

The project will be supported by rail facilities which may connect through to existing coal export terminals at either or both Abbot Point or Hay Point.

New starters are urged to start preparing themselves for employment in 2017.

The Galilee Basin is the last undeveloped coal resource in Queensland and is expected to become Queensland's largest coal producing region.

"If it proceeds, the mine could potentially produce up to 60 million tonnes of coal a year, predominately to service the Indian domestic power market," Minister for Infrastructure and Planning, Stirling Hinchliffe said.

According to Hinchliffe the project would initially employ 5000 workers in the construction phase, then 4000 ongoing mining jobs.

"It's important to note that declaring this proposal a significant project does not constitute Government approval or support for the project, this is just the start of the comprehensive EIS process.

"The draft TOR provides the framework for the EIS and I encourage all interested parties to get in and have their say."

Coordinator General Keith Davies said the scale, potential effects and complexity of the approvals for the project required a rigorous EIS.

"The EIS will consider the potential environmental, cultural and socio-economic impacts on the local community," Mr Davies said.

The proposed $4.1 billion Carmichael Coal Mine is located mostly in the Moray Downs cattle station while the proposed $6 billion railway development is in the Mackay and Whitsunday Regional Council areas.

The mine is about 160 kilometres north-west of Clermont.

      Yes! there will be some opportunities for inexperienced dump truck drivers. At this early stage it is still only a exploration site. I work at Carmichael by the way
