What is being said about the region?
"The planned Galilee mines would dwarf Australia's biggest operating black coal mines, BHP Billiton's Blackwater and Goonyella coking coal mines in Queensland, which each produce about 14 million tonnes of coking coal a year." The Australian, Tuesday March 5, 2013
"The development of the rail line and port infrastructure will unlock the Galilee Basin and see the development of Alpha, Kevin's Corner and Alpha West (mines), creating one of the largest integrated coal development projects globally." Townsville Bulletin, March 12th, 2013
"Seeney himself has been closely involved with the new Abbot Point plan. The Bligh government's proposal was for a massive multi-user terminal adjacent to Abbot Point that would provide eight wharves at the port, but Seeney cancelled this soon after the government came to office a year ago, claiming that it was an expensive process not supported by industry."
"They now have six months to come up with more detailed proposals, and then have to start negotiating with mining companies that want port access. That makes six terminals in total, and with all this it will be at least 2020 before that magical figure of 300m tonnes capacity is reached." The Australian, April 13, 2013
