Evolving Gold Continues to Expand the Mineralized Zone At Rattlesnake Hills, Wyoming



    VANCOUVER, Jan. 13 /CNW/ - Evolving Gold Corp. (TSXV:EVG) (FSE:EV7) (the
"Company") is pleased to announce additional assay results which continue to
expand the zone of gold mineralization. Hole RSC-012 intersected an aggregate
of 359.6 meters of 0.90 gpt gold (1,179ft of 0.026 oz/ton) in seven intervals.
    "The results from RSC-012 confirm and expand the size of the zone of gold
mineralization at Rattlesnake and provide first indications of significant
near surface mineralization. The expansion of the zone of lower grade gold
mineralization is encouraging. Previous drilling indicates that it can contain
long intervals of higher grades (news release 12/2/08)." comments Evolving
Chief Geologist and President, Dr Quinton Hennigh.
    Interpretation of the drill results to date indicates a large volume of
mineralized schist extending and open to the south and southwest of the North
Stock target, potentially connecting with mineralization in Antelope Basin and
South Stock.
    Drill hole RSC-012 intersected long intervals of gold mineralization
starting at 13.7 meters down hole. Using a nominal cutoff of 0.25 gpt gold,
RSC-012 intersected an aggregate of 359.6 meters (1,179 ft) in seven intervals
with an average grade of 0.90 gpt gold (0.026 oz/ton). These intervals include
zones of higher grade mineralization (see table below).

    The best and highest grade gold mineralization is concentrated in the
schist. The diatreme breccia appears to be largely post-mineral in age with
relatively discontinuous and lower grade gold mineralization. Drill hole
RSC-013, which drilled into the diatreme breccia, intersected lower grade gold
mineralization - an aggregate of 131.1 meters of 0.43 gpt gold in four
intervals starting at 19.8 meters and ending at 285.5 meters. This is
consistent with our improved geological model for Rattlesnake.

    Rattlesnake Hills Project

    Evolving Gold has completed fifteen core holes at its Rattlesnake Hills
project, for a total of 6,524 meters. Assays are still pending for drill holes
RSC-014 and RSC-015, as well as two short drill holes, RSC-008 and RSC-010,
all in the North Stock target area.
    The Rattlesnake Hills project is a volcanic hosted alkalic gold system
similar to other volcanic complexes in the Rocky Mountain alkalic gold
province, including Zortman-Landusky in Montana, Ortiz in New Mexico and
Cripple Creek in Colorado where approximately 20,000,000 ounces gold has been
produced from high grade zones. At Cripple Creek, Anglo Ashanti Limited
currently operates in its open pit with a cutoff of approximately 0.25 gpt
gold. Evolving Gold has an option to acquire 100 percent of the Rattlesnake
Hills property. In connection with the acquisition of the Rattlesnake Hills
property, Evolving Gold filed a NI 43-101 compliant report which is available
at www.sedar.com.

    Additional Assay Information for Rattlesnake Hills

    The assays were implemented by the SGS Group. Samples were analyzed by
30g fire assay and an ICP finish, and all values over 10 gpt gold were
re-assayed by 30g fire assay and gravimetric finish. All metallic screen fire
assays were undertaken by the SGS Group, with the coarse fraction assayed in
its entirety and two 30g fire assays completed for the fine fraction. Accurate
estimates of the true widths of the mineralized intersections are not
available at this early stage in the exploration of the property.
