Evolution Mining is a growth focused Australian gold company. We own and operate four gold operations in Queensland and Western Australia and are developing a fifth gold operation in Queensland. Evolution Mining holds a 100% interest in all of its operations.
Evolution Mining was created in late 2011 to form a mid-tier Australian gold producer through a merger of Catalpa Resources Ltd and Conquest Mining Ltd and the concurrent acquisition of Newcrest Mining’s interests in the Cracow and Mt Rawdon mines.
Evolution Mining owns and operates four gold operations with a fifth operation due to come on stream in 2012. Four of the operations are located in Queensland, Australia and one is in Western Australia. Evolution Mining’s diversified portfolio combining production and growth will see it become one of the top three in growth amongst Australian mid market cap gold companies by 2013.
The focus of Evolution Mining is on operating its projects safely and efficiently and developing them to their full potential. Evolution Mining expects to be able to extend the mine lives of all of its operations with the progressive development of current projects and continued exploration successes.
