Evolving Gold Begins Drilling at its Rattlesnake Hills, WY Gold Project

VANCOUVER, June 7 /CNW/ - Evolving Gold Corp. (TSXV: EVG) (FSE: EV7) (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has commenced its 2010 drill program of 20,000 meters at its 100% owned Rattlesnake Hills, WY gold project.

2010 Rattlesnake Hills Drill Program

The company has commenced its 20,000 m diamond drilling program which is expected to continue through late October, 2010.

        -  Approximately 60% of the total drill budget will be dedicated to
           infill and step-out drilling to further define the known zones of
           mineralization, and to test the undrilled extensions of gold
           mineralization at North Stock and Antelope Basin.

        -  Approximately 40% of the total drill budget will be applied to
           continued exploration of several new target areas identified by
           surface sampling and mapping in 2009. All of these new targets lie
           within a 2 km radius of the North Stock and Antelope Basin areas,
           the focus of most of the past drilling. The porphyry target which
           lies southeast of North Stock is an important part of this ongoing
           exploratory drilling.

        -  The company will utilize three track mounted core rigs to provide
           more flexibility on small, hillside drill pads.

        -  Newly constructed drill pads will provide improved access and
           greater ability to properly test open zones and extensions of
           mineralization at North Stock and Antelope Basin.

"We are very pleased to start drilling again at Rattlesnake," says Quinton Hennigh, President and Chief Geologist of Evolving Gold. "The start date was pushed back a couple weeks due to very wet conditions, but warmer and drier conditions, normal for this time of year, have taken hold. We are looking forward to stepping out and exploring some clearly open extensions of gold mineralization at North Stock and Antelope Basin, but we are equally excited to start testing some new, well-defined targets resulting from our work last season. The results of last year have demonstrated that we have only just begun to explore the full potential at Rattlesnake Hills, and we have yet to test the full size potential of this remarkable system."

Rattlesnake Hills NI 43-101 Technical Report

The Company is still awaiting an updated 43-101 technical report for the project from AMEC Metals and Mining. Although a technical report has not yet been delivered, AMEC has provided valuable guidance for conducting step-out drilling and drill hole spacing for the 2010 drill program.
