Gold from the Cowal operation has been used to create the 2022 Melbourne Cup trophy. This is the fourth time Evolution gold has been used to create The Cup, and the second time for Cowal. The trophy has been produced using Evolution gold that has been mined, refined, and crafted wholly in Australia. The Cup took a promotional tour in the lead up to the running of the 2022 Melbourne Cup.

The Cup, and horse racing royalty, visited Ernest Henry in September adding a touch of Evolution gold to the Cloncurry community. Sheila Laxon, the first female trainer to win the race in 2001, came to the site to connect with our people and see a gold mine up close. The Ernest Henry team supported our partners, the Cloncurry & District Racing Club, who hosted The Cup at the local schools, kindergarten, and hospital. Evolution was also well represented by Geologist Stephanie Bartie who educated the public about how Evolution safely sources gold. The Cup also made its way to Forbes and West Wyalong and on site where the local community gathered to celebrate The Cup returning. Evolution worked alongside the Victorian Racing Club, to bring the People’s Cup to our Cloncurry, Forbes, and West Wyalong communities in the spirit of true partnership and sharing the benefit of gold mining.

From September 19 – 21, Cowal hosted five regional events. $15,000 was donated to local charities in the Cowal region. The impacts at both Ernest Henry and Cowal saw a host of local social, educational, and economic benefits.
