Evolution's gold tours excite community

An annual 2-hour mine tour offered at Evolution Mining’s Mount Rawdon operation in Queensland could become a twice-yearly attraction, providing the local community, tourists and students the opportunity to see first-hand the inner workings of a gold mine, meet the diverse team and explore the many opportunities within the gold industry.

Over Friday 22 and Saturday 23 February, the Mount Rawdon mine tours attracted residents from the Mount Perry community, regional visitors from Gayndah, Biggendon and Bundaberg, and Biggendon PCYC SES cadets.

The Aboriginal woman who found gold

In 1911, a newly-wed Aboriginal couple found gold in Far North Queensland. The woman became a miner and made history, when she found a new goldfield located near the Batavia River.

Aboriginal people mined the land for ochre and stone long before the First Fleet arrived in Sydney Harbour. As the European gold rushes spread across the country, some Aboriginal people became prospectors too.

Evolution champions environmental rehabilitation pilot program

Evolution Mining has partnered with NQ Dry Tropics (NQDT) to pilot an innovative Environmental Enhancement project, aimed at re-establishing an open body of water and restoring its fauna diversity.

By removing 15 hectares of aquatic weeds within the Kalamia Creek wetlands in Ayr, North Queensland, the project will explore how to prevent their continued spread, and how those weeds can then be harvested, transported to a local landholder and turned into compost, with the resulting organic matter used to improve local agricultural soils and benefit farm productivity.
