New Delhi: Shares of Adani Enterprises on Tuesday closed up 8.63% after the Adani Group gave the final investment approval for its Carmichael coal mine project in Australia.

At NSE, shares of the company closed at Rs128.10, up 9.02% from the previous session’s closing. “I am proud to announce the project has Final Investment Decision approval which marks the official start of one of the largest single infrastructure—and job creating—developments in Australia’s recent history," Adani Group chairman Gautam Adani said.

This is a historic day for Adani, a historic day for regional Queensland, and a historic day for Indian investment in Australia, he said.

The announcement comes just days after the Adani Group agreed to pay royalties on coal produced from its project after it struck an agreement with the Queensland government to help the controversy-hit project move forward.

Adani said the Carmichael projects will generate 10,000 direct and indirect jobs, with pre-construction works starting in September quarter of 2017.
