Queensland gold the champion on race day

Queensland gold the champion on race day

If you stop to watch ‘the race that stops a nation’ today, think about where the coveted trophy came from.

Gold produced at Evolution Mining’s Mt Rawdon gold mine in Queensland was used by ABC Refinery to make the 2018 Lexus Melbourne Cup.

Since 2003, each year’s Melbourne Cup has traditionally made an annual tour, giving members of the public a chance to see it first-hand, and this year the journey saw it make a star return to the Mt Rawdon gold mine and Mt Perry community.
