About us

Evolution Mining has evolved from a small company into a global gold mining business with a reputation of delivering value for all stakeholders. We have operations across Australia and in Canada. Our overriding priority is safety. We dare our people to think differently, we act like owners, and we live our values of safety, accountability, excellence, and respect.

Looking towards the future and transitioning to a low carbon environment, Evolution is taking the necessary steps to reduce its environmental footprint - converting from diesel to batteries and electric vehicles, to repurposing end of life mines to potential pumped hydro projects, we aim high in the renewable energy space. Evolution Mining recognises the important role our apprentices will play in this transition as we cultivate leaders of the future.

We want people's time at Evolution to be a highlight of their career, forging a company that's known for sustainable excellence, and attracting the best talent, not only to Evolution, but also to our industry.
