Mine Closure: Rehabilitation
The Mt Rawdon operation is currently planned to close in 2028. Evolution is pursuing construction of a leading-edge low-cost, renewable energy storage managed in partnership with Infrastructure Capital Australia Partners (ICA Partners), known as the Pumped Hydro Project.
Preliminary feasibility studies support the project’s potential to deliver a cost-efficient renewable energy power source in Queensland that would contribute to the state-wide target of 50% renewables by 2030. It would also generate significant economic and social benefits to the local community and National Electricity Market (NEM). Planning with decision-makers and experienced partners is ongoing. The initiative showcases Evolution’s capability to lead sustainable solutions in line with our values and support our local communities beyond the life of mine, with planned positive legacy solutions.
