Community Engagement


In FY23, Mt Rawdon’s closure and Pumped Hydro project have undergone significant milestones. The project involves repurposing Mt Rawdon’s pit void into a lower reservoir and excavate a new upper reservoir in the nearby hill, with interconnecting underground twin water tunnels and powerhouse. This will provide Queensland with low-cost, large-scale renewable energy storage, support a more reliable energy system, and reduce risks of electricity price volatility.

It has now received ‘Coordinate Project’ status under the Queensland State Development and Public Works Organisation Act 1971, and the Queensland’s Coordinator-General has finalised the terms of reference (TOR) for an environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Mt Rawdon Pumped Hydro project. It is open for consultation now.
The Project team has since commenced targeted stakeholder engagement to provide information on community impacts, including employment, housing, health and infrastructure in Gin Gin, Mount Perry and Bundaberg. To complement this, the Mt Rawdon team also hosted a Community Information Evening at the Town Hall in Mount Perry on the 9th of June, which centred on the transition from existing mining operations to the Mt Rawdon Pumped Hydro. Approximately 70 people attended and was followed the next day with a tour of the mine site of approximately 150 participants.

We have ongoing engagement with Government, stakeholders, and communities, including our employees, and our First Nation Partners to advance the project. Building capability and ensuring sustainable positive legacies remain a steadfast focus for Evolution as we learn and develop through closing out our first mine.
