Australia: Allegations Of Illegal Groundwater Bores By Giant Indian Mining Corporation


The Queensland environment department has launched an investigation into a series of groundwater bores drilled by Indian miner Adani, which conservationists say were sunk without approval. The environmental group Coast and Country has obtained high resolution satellite and drone imagery which it says shows the "illegal" works at the site of Adani's controversial Carmichael coal mine project in north Queensland. The company has said that it is abiding by the conditions of the Carmichael project's approvals.
