Mumbai: Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani, whose $22 billion Carmichael coal mine and port-cum-railhead project in Queensland is being opposed by some people, says he is hopeful of starting it by August this year.

“We expect the final federal approvals by May-June. We need just about three months from thereon to actually begin the work on the mine. Which means we can kick-start work from August this year,” Adani told PTI. He was flanked by the premier of Queensland Anastasia Palaszczuk, who was in town leading a 25-member delegation of mayors and state officials.
