The Adani Carmichael mine does not receive government subsidies. It has met all of its state and Commonwealth approvals and will create around 1,500 direct jobs and almost 7,000 supporting jobs. The mining industry employed more than 54,000 people last year and pays more than $6 billion annually in royalties, enabling new investment in roads, hospitals and schools. The coal industry is providing jobs in communities across rural and regional Australia.
