About Us

Evolution Mining has evolved from a small company into a globally relevant gold mining business with a reputation for delivering value for all stakeholders. Our overriding priority is safety. We dare our people to think differently, act like owners, and live our values of safety, accountability, excellence, and respect. We aim for people's time at Evolution to be a career highlight, forging a company known for sustainable excellence and attracting top talent not only to Evolution but also to our industry.

 

Our Cowal gold operation is located 40km northeast of West Wyalong in NSW. This site is residential, meaning our employees return to their own homes each night rather than a camp. West Wyalong offers many schools, restaurants, and sporting teams and is close to several regional centres. Our rosters are designed to help you achieve a work-life balance. With our recent mine life extension until 2032, we offer increased job security.
