"The granting of Mining Leases (MLs) means discussions can now re-commence with contractors and stakeholders on prospective people, logistics and mining services hubs to service Adani's Carmichael Mine, North Galilee Basin Rail and Abbott Point Port Expansion projects," Adani Australia CEO Jeyakumar Janakaraj said at the Queensland-based Bowen Basin Mining Club (BBMC).
    
"In conjunction with our valued partners such as Downer, we have been considering our preferred options for hubs to not only ensure we get the best value for this significant investment but, consistent with our undertakings, ensure local workforces and suppliers have the opportunity to benefit" Janakaraj said.
    
His remarks comes just days after Adani's 21.7 billion dollars coal mine project in Queensland won three mining leases after which the Indian mining giant said a final decision on investment will be taken only after the resolution of 'politically-motivated' legal challenges.
