The Mt Rawdon Operation is located 75km south-west of Bundaberg, Queensland and is surrounded by the traditional lands of the Byellee, Gooreng Gooreng, Gurang and Taribelang Bunda people who make up the Port Curtis Coral Coast native title claim group. Our local communities are Mt Perry, Gin Gin, Biggenden and Gayndah. Evolution has owned and operated Mt Rawdon since November 2011.
Mt Rawdon produced 77,005 ounces of gold at an AISC of A$1,513 per ounce for FY21. The production result was in line with expectations and the prior period due to stable delivery of ore to the processing plant. Net mine cash flow was A$58.4 million. The team celebrated 20 years of continuous operations on 16 February 2021. A significant milestone of 365 days without a recordable injury was achieved on 25 February 2021 and the operation had been injury free for over 15 months until May 2021.
A focus on improving the reliability of the mill resulted in total throughput of 3.4 million tonnes in FY21 which was an improvement on the 3.3 million tonnes processed in FY20 and was the highest throughput achieved since FY16.
