Evolution Mining Limited has been actively responding to the COVID-19 virus currently impacting people and businesses globally. The health and safety of every person working at Evolution, their families and our communities remain paramount during this time.

Evolution has developed plans to minimise risks to people and ensure they can continue to safely produce gold during this challenging period. These plans include activation of crisis management protocols, suspending international travel, restricting domestic travel, reducing face-to-face interaction, increasing flexible working arrangements, regular COVID-19 communication with the entire workforce and ensuring best practice health management is maintained at all times.

There have not been any cases of an Evolution employee or contractor testing positive to COVID-19. Evolution continues to work closely with regulators and industry groups to ensure all operations are complying with agreed protocols and any changing needs.

To date, there has been no material impact on Evolution’s operations from the COVID-19 virus.

At Evolution’s 100% owned Australian operations, only Cracowhas a fly-in fly-out (FIFO) workforce. With97% of Cracow’s workforce residing in Queensland, cross-border travel restrictions have not impacted the operation.

In the absence of any material restrictions being enforced on the operations, Evolution maintains current FY20 Group guidance, excluding Red Lake Gold Mine(“Red Lake”), of around 725,000 ounces at an AISC of A$940 –A$990/oz.
