Lucas Dow has quit as CEO of Adani which is building a controversial Queensland coal project.
Adani mining boss Lucas Dow has stepped down from his role as head of the company building a controversial coal project in Queensland.
Mr Dow will bow out as chief executive officer and take up a position as a director on Adani Australia’s board, the firm said in a statement.
Adani project director David Boshoff has been appointed chief executive and will be based in Townsville.
The company is building a 10 million-tonne-a-year thermal coal mine in the Galilee Basin, which Mr Dow has previously flagged as the first phase of a project that could expand to six times its size.
