A foreign backed $21 billion resources development will start delivering coal sometime next year.

Adani Australia recently confirmed work is “well and truly underway” at its Carmichael Coal Project, 160 km northwest of Clermont.

Adani Mining chief executive Lucas Dow revealed the India-headquartered proponent expects to deliver first coal sometime in the year 2021.

He also told a Bowen Basin Mining Club luncheon the outcome of the procurement process for a main civil contractor will also be announced shortly, with several work opportunities to be created within months.

The proponent has already announced tenders worth more than $750 million and is upbeat about the future of coal, predicting demand for coal fired power in the Asia Pacific region will jump 80 per cent by the year 2040.

Dow believes this soaring demand for coal production is a unique opportunity for the Australian resources sector that could provide wealth for multiple generations while, at the same time, producing cleaner coal.
