LNP Leader Deb Frecklington has today welcomed the announcement that work will begin on the Carmichael Mine before Christmas.

"Queensland has Australia's highest unemployment rates so these jobs are desperately needed," Ms Frecklington said.

"The Carmichael Mine has been subject to rigorous approvals processes and now it is time for the Palaszczuk Government to approve the final management plans so Queenslanders can get these jobs.

"The LNP has been the only political party that has consistently supported opening up the Galilee Basin."

LNP Deputy Leader and Shadow Treasurer Tim Mander said the royalties from the mine should be used to provide vital services for Queenslanders.

"These royalties should be used to air con every state school classroom and help build dams and local roads in North Queensland," Mr Mander said.

LNP Shadow Minister for Mines and North Queensland Dale Last said this project will be a great opportunity for the whole North Queensland region.

"My community has struggled over recent years and these jobs will be most welcomed," Mr Last said.

"I look forward to the Carmichael Mine utilising a local workforce and buying supplies from small businesses in my community wherever possible."
