Evolution Mining is a leading, growth-focused, and globally relevant gold company. Formed in late 2011, it operates five wholly owned mines across Australia and Canada.
One of Evolution Mining’s mines is the Mungari gold operation located 20 km west of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia. The operation started in 2014 and is now a key asset in Evolution Mining’s portfolio. The operation consists of underground mining at Frog’s Leg, open pit mining at White Foil and Cutters Ridge with a considerable regional tenement package to the north around Castle Hill hosting a total mineral resource of 51 million tonnes grading 1.47g/t gold for 2.4 million ounces.
Metso Outotec supplied all the heavy-duty pumps (Orion HR series) and vertical sump pumps (Sala VS & ST series) – 25 in total – for the Mungari plant when it was constructed in 2013.
