Evolving Gold Intersects 14.7 Meters at 8.76 gpt Gold Carlin Trend, Nevada

VANCOUVER, June 8, 2011 /CNW/ - Evolving Gold Corp. (TSX: EVG) (FSE: EV7) (the "Company") is pleased to report that wedge hole CAR-010.1 intersected 21.5 meters at 6.56 gpt (grams per tonne) gold (70.5 feet at 0.192 opt (oz per ton) gold) including 14.7 meters at 8.76 gpt gold (48.2 feet at 0.256 opt gold) at its Carlin project in Nevada. This wedge hole was drilled from diamond drill hole CAR-010 which intersected 10.1 meters at 11.09 gpt gold (news release, April 14, 2011). The intersection in CAR-010.1 lies approximately 10 meters east of the intersection reported in CAR-010.

"The high-grade gold in this wedge hole, combined with similar intersections in holes CAR-010 and CAR-007, provides valuable information on the geometry of this high-grade Carlin gold target," comments Quinton Hennigh, Chief Geologist of Evolving Gold. "We now believe a northerly to northeasterly structural trend controls this zone.  Our next three holes around CAR-010, will test this model.  The large, high-grade gold deposits of the Carlin Trend can have modest footprints, sometimes no more than a few hundred meters in length.  All of our planned additional step-out holes will lie within a 150-meter radius of CAR-010."

The Company presently has two core rigs drilling on its Carlin Trend properties, one testing a target on its 100% owned Humboldt project, and a second drilling approximately 100 meters north of hole CAR-010 on the Carlin project. The Carlin project is subject to an agreement with various subsidiaries of Newmont Mining Corporation.

A technical report (NI 43-101 report) has been completed and filed for the Company's three gold exploration projects in the Carlin Trend, and it is now available on SEDAR.

Jake Creek
The Company is pleased to announce it has received amended permits for an additional twenty reverse circulation drill holes at its 100% owned Jake Creek property near the Twin Creeks and Ken Snyder mines in north central Nevada. Hole JC-005, drilled last year, intersected 28.9 meters at 1.33 grams per tonne gold including 1.5 meters at 11.3 grams per tonne gold (news release, November 18, 2010).  Drilling is scheduled to begin by mid-June.

Rattlesnake Hills
On May 9th, 2011 the Company reported that it had signed a Letter Agreement with Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited to form a joint venture on the Rattlesnake Hills project.  Preparation of the definitive joint venture agreements is proceeding well, however the timeframe for completing the definitive documentation has been extended from June 1st to June 17th.  Concurrently, Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited has signed a drill contract, and the drill program on the Rattlesnake JV is expected to begin core drilling during June 2011.

In addition, EVG wishes to report that Quinton Hennigh is shifting his role within the Company in order to better focus his time on exploration and project development.  While retaining his role as Chief Geologist of the Company, Dr. Hennigh will step down as President in order to reduce his daily administrative duties. "This shift in responsibilities will allow me to focus on what I enjoy most, being actively involved in the exploration for major new gold deposits," comments Hennigh.  "I am very excited about our exploration programs in Nevada and believe that this year these projects will deliver untapped value for our shareholders."
