Evolving Gold Announces Resignation of a Director

VANCOUVER, Nov. 9, 2011 /CNW/ - Evolving Gold Corp. (TSX: EVG, OTCQX: EVOGF, FSE: EV7) (the "Company") announces that Mr. Quinton Hennigh has resigned as Director and Chief Geologist of the Corporation to pursue other interests.

The Company's current portfolio of quality gold projects resulted from the creative vision and diligent exploration work of Mr. Hennigh.  In particular, his discoveries at the Carlin-Humboldt projects in Nevada and the Rattlesnake Hills project in Wyoming are the foundation of Evolving Gold's current exploration programs.  William Gee, CEO and Director, stated:  "The management and Board of Directors wish to thank Quinton for his extraordinary commitment over the last several years and for his significant contributions to the development of the Company and its foundation of major gold assets.  Perhaps most significantly, Quinton deserves credit for driving a discovery in Nevada that contrary to conventional exploration wisdom, discovered high grade Carlin-type gold mineralization that dramatically opened up the exploration potential of the entire south Carlin Trend.  We wish Quinton all the very best in his future endeavors."

The critical role of Chief Geologist has been transferred to Mr. Steven Koehler who has been leading the Company's Nevada programs since early 2011.  Mr. Koehler has over 21 years of Nevada exploration experience and has been involved in five gold discoveries in Nevada, two of which are currently in production at Cortez Hills and Leeville, operated by Barrick and Newmont respectively.  Mr. Hennigh states, "Mr Koehler is one of the strongest explorers in Nevada and has the experience and passion necessary to drive Evolving Gold's exploration program. Over the last six months, Steve and I have worked closely and the Company is fortunate to be able to seamlessly transition its technical program as Evolving Gold's projects advance."
