Adani mine in doubt after election?

‘ … the significance of Adani’s mine, if constructed, is not just the economic boon that producing up to 60 million tonnes of coal a year would bring – increasing Queensland’s coal production by one-third and as much as doubling the state’s thermal coal exports – but also that the coal will be shipped through  the Great Barrier Reef to India.

‘The project faces massive political uncertainty  in the wake of the seismic state election result, just as a Fairfax Media investigation has unearthed details about Adani’s business dealings – including fraud allegations, the use of tax havens and issues of transparency – that some argue mean the endeavour warrants much greater scrutiny.’ (Lisa Cox, Sydney Morning Herald, 7.2.15)
