Adani wins native title battle

The Federal Court of Australia has dismissed a native title challenge to Indian major Adani’s Carmichael coal project, in Queensland.

The Wangan and Jagalingou (W&J) People in 2016 voted 294 to 1 in favour of an indigenous land use agreement for the Carmichael project, with the agreement inked by the Queensland government, the W&J People, and Adani in 2017, which was registered with the National Native Title Tribunal.
