Red Lake - a cornerstone Evolution asset being restored into a premier Canadian gold mine

The Red Lake operation is an underground gold mine in north western Ontario and is situated in one of the highest grade Archean gold camps in Canada. Acquired in April 2020, an operational transformation plan is underway to restore Red Lake to a premier Canadian gold mine.

In our first year of ownership, Red Lake produced 126,339 ounces of gold at an AISC of A$2,044 per ounce which was within both production and cost guidance. The three year transformation program at Red Lake is well underway to restore the operation’s production to above 200,000 ounces per annum at an AISC of less than US$1,000 per ounce.
