About Us

Our Story

In 2010, an opportunity was identified to fill a vacuum in the Australian gold mining sector by creating a new producer. Our first asset was a resource in North Queensland that others believed was not feasible to develop. Undeterred, our Executive Chair and founder, Jake Klein, with the assistance of a small management team, pursued a series of bold and complex deals to form Evolution in November 2011 and successfully turned that initial resource at Mt Carlton into one of the world’s highest-grade open pit gold mines.

It’s all in the name… we’ve evolved from a small company into a globally relevant gold mining business with a reputation of delivering value for all stakeholders. Underpinning it all, is our Australian story and spirit.

Since day one, our overriding priority has been safety. We dare our people to think differently, we act like owners and we live our values of safety, accountability, excellence and respect. 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.

We’ve weathered storms to become a company that prospers through the cycle. We’ve stayed true to our vision and become a global leader in low-cost gold production.

We recognise that along our journey comes change. Embracing technology and innovation are important for our future success, and sustainability is more critical than ever. As we grow, we want to continue to combine ambition and our entrepreneurial mindset with humility. We want our people and our communities to grow as we grow. And we believe that together, we can become the best premier global gold mining company in the world.
