Evolution Mining seeks to work with our communities to achieve their future aspirations. As a member of the communities in which we operate, we strive to make a positive difference and to earn the trust of all with whom we interact.


This policy applies to all Evolution Mining Directors, Employees, and any Contractors, Consultants or other service providers who interact with community stakeholders whilst representing Evolution Mining (Evolution).

    • We communicate regularly with our stakeholders with integrity in an open, timely and transparent way
    • We work closely with our stakeholders, we share ideas and we actively seek opportunities to collaborate
    • We value the diversity of our stakeholders, respect their culture, backgrounds, and aspirations, and we strive to achieve outcomes of mutual benefit


3.3.1. Every person covered by this policy recognises, understands and accepts their individual responsibility to:

a) Comply with all applicable laws, internal policies and other commitments to our stakeholders to which we subscribe.

(a) identifying opportunities for partnerships that create shared value, both for Evolution and for our community stakeholders
