Coal royalties will not be increased in next Queensland budget

Coal royalties will not be increased in next Queensland budget The announcement comes days after Ms Trad said she would not speculate on a change to the rate of royalties before the June budget was handed down. "We want to set up a fund that will go to assist regional communities to deliver on infrastructure they have been crying out for for a while. To get this fund started the government will contribute $30 million," she said. Ms Trad said she hoped mining companies would chip in $70 million to bring the fund total up to $100 million, but stressed the contributions were “completely voluntary”.

'It's time to move on': Trad on Adani© AAP Images Queensland treasurer Jackie Trad has had the figures calculated on the jobs Adani's proposed mine would produce compared to those created by the government.

There is way too much hype from all sides about Adani's proposed Carmichael coal mine, Queensland treasurer Jackie Trad says.

It would create barely any jobs compared to those created by the Palaszczuk government, she said.

The mine would make up about 0.005 per cent of the jobs produced or facilitated by the state government since it came into power in 2015, Ms Trad said on Thursday.

She faced questions about her thoughts towards the mine at a lunch ahead of Tuesday's budget.

Ms Trad said there was too much fixation on the one mine, and added that global warming did not revolve around in the proposed Galilee Basin project.

"I don't think action on global warming revolves around one mine," she said.

"And I certainly don't think the prosperity and the job creation opportunities in regional Queensland revolves around this one mine either."

She said the debate over the mine had been weaponised by the extreme ends of the political spectrum.

"It's time to move on," she said.

Premier promises Adani won't be the last mine she approves.
The proposed coal mine was the first, waiting approval to begin mining in Queensland's Galilee Basin, described as Queensland's last significant coal resource. Six other mines wait to follow in Adani's footsteps and begin digging up coal in the Basin.  All but one of those mines' coal outputs were expected to exceed the Carmichael mine. The China Stone Coal Project, owned by MacMines Austasia, will sit just 30 kilometres from the Carmichael site. MacMines was given the environmental nod from the Coordinator-General last year, but has withdrawn its mining lease application.
