COWAL AND THE CUP
Evolution had an exciting surprise for investors at their latest AGM: the 2016 Melbourne Cup trophy would be made from Evolution gold. Specifically, it would be mined at the company's newest acquisition, the $550 million Cowal mine in central NSW. To celebrate, Evolution sent our crew (with the precious Melbourne Cup) to Cowal, where we spent two days filming the cup with star-struck locals and enormous Caterpillar trucks.
Over one kilometre in diameter, "the pit" would be virtually impossible to film without a drone – luckily we had the excellent Jeff Camden piloting his octocopter overhead, capturing breathtaking shots which wowed the audience when it premiered at Evolution's AGM.
