Jake Klein is the Executive Chairman of Evolution Mining. The company was formed in November 2011 and has a reputation for reliability and consistency. This has allowed Evolution to pursue a counter-cyclical M&A growth strategy to upgrade the quality of its asset portfolio and become Australia’s second largest ASX listed gold miner and one of the lowest cost gold producers in the world. Evolution currently operates five 100% owned assets and has an economic interest in the Ernest Henry copper-gold mine in Queensland. All assets are located in Australia.
Jake was previously the President and CEO of Sino Gold Mining Limited where he managed the development of that company into the largest foreign participant in the Chinese gold industry. Sino Gold was purchased by Eldorado Gold in late 2009.
Jake has previously held positions of non-executive director on the boards of Lynas Corporation and Oceana Gold. He is also a former President of the NSW Branch of the Australia China Business Council.
