Mr Clive Palmer’s Waratah Coal has renewed plans to build a massive coal mine in Queensland's Galilee Basin that would dwarf Adani's Carmichael project. Waratah Coal won federal government environmental approval for its Galilee Coal project in 2013, but has not progressed its proposal until now. The company has applied to the Queensland Government for a mining licence and environmental authorisation to build two open-cut pits and four underground mines to produce 40 million tonnes of coal a year.

Notification of the renewed application has alarmed environmentalists and landholders. Activist group Lock the Gate condemned the destructive proposal, previously known as China First, which it said would destroy grazing land.
