Ravenswood Gold is a private company owned by EMR Capital (EMR) and SGX listed Golden Energy and Resources Limited (GEAR). EMR and GEAR established a joint venture to acquire, operate and develop the Ravenswood Gold Mine which is located approximately 130km south of Townsville and 90km east of Charters Towers in north-east Queensland. Since 1868, over 4Moz of gold have been mined at Ravenswood, with another 4Moz still in resource.

In 2020, Ravenswood gold committed to a significant expansion of the existing mining operation, that will very soon see gold production increase to over 200 000oz per year and extend mine life by at least 14 years.
