Latest evidence megamine is ready to roll
The controversial Indian mining giant formerly known as Adani has begun laying the 200km railway line that will connect the Carmichael coal megamine to Abbot Point terminal.
Bravus Mining and Resources CEO David Boshoff said the project's materials were made in Australia.
"We always said the Carmichael project would create Australian jobs and benefit local businesses, and this is yet another example of how we are delivering on our promise," he said.
The narrow-gauge rail project will connect the mine via existing infrastructure.
"Bravus Mining and Resources is using Australian materials and Australian contractors so that the jobs and economic benefits of our privately funded rail infrastructure go straight back into the Australian economy," Mr Boshoff said.
The mine is on track to produce its first coal next year.
