Stakeholder Engagement


Rural Aid provides critical support to drought-affected rural towns and farmers, strives to build stronger futures, and enhances economic sustainability and wellbeing in regional areas. In line with our vision and values, Evolution strengthened its ongoing partnership with Rural Aid to create more sustainable and resilient rural communities where we operate. Over the past year, Evolution and Rural Aid have partnered in a number of initiatives.


The Rural Aid Our Towns initiative provides rural or regional towns with volunteer and financial support to undertake projects that rejuvenate and revive parts of their town, focusing on renewal projects for the long-term future and sustainability. Evolution contributed both financial and volunteer support to the Rural Aid Our Towns makeover project in Monto. The town, situated near our Mt Rawdon mine, involved more than 50 volunteers that upgraded local amenities and public spaces. The project was recognised through the North Burnett Regional Council Australia Day awards and named the Monto Community Event of the Year.

Mt Carlton and Rural Aid leveraged their existing partnership to facilitate the installation of 30 SOURCE Hydro Panels across Collinsville State High School and Merinda State School. This relatively new technology provides an opportunity to strengthen their water security, access, and reliability. The panels act as renewable drinking water systems for the approximately 150 students and teachers as they use sunlight and air to make, store and dispense clean, mineralised drinking water and utilise cloud technology to enable effective monitoring and optimisation for every climate. Over a 15-year lifespan, just one Hydro Panel can eliminate the need for up to 54,750 single-use plastic water bottles and avoids the extraction of groundwater. It provides a unique, one-of-a-kind renewable water technology for our communities that enables clean, safe, off-grid potable drinking water, reduced bottle waste, and opportunities for STEM education.
