Evolving Gold Commences Phase One Drill Program on Rattlesnake Hills Gold Mineralized Diatreme Complex


    VANCOUVER, June 24 /CNW/ - Evolving Gold Corp. (TSX-V:EVG) (OTCBB:EVOGF)
is pleased to announce the commencement of the Phase One drill program on its
100% owned Rattlesnake Hills Diatreme Complex Project in Wyoming, designed to
expand the gold mineralization indicated by previous drilling. Evolving has
two diamond drilling core rigs on site to undertake the 7,000 m (23,000 ft)
drill program.
    Phase One drilling will focus on the North Stock diatreme breccia which
measures approximately 700 m (2,300 ft) in diameter as well as the 900 m
(2,950 ft) long and 400 m (1,310 ft) wide Antelope graben extending southward
from the diatreme. Evolving expects that at least one hole will test the 500 m
(1,640 ft) diameter South Stock alkaline intrusion at the southern terminus of
Antelope Graben. Evolving will drill fans of holes at the North Stock diatreme
breccia from an array of pads on approximate 125 m (410 ft) centers to a
vertical depth of 500 m (1,640 ft).
    Evolving has identified a second diatreme with a diameter of 900 m
(2,950 ft) immediately northeast of the known, North Stock diatreme. The
second diatreme displays similar alteration to the North Stock diatreme and
covers a mapped footprint of alteration encompassing at least 1.5 square
kilometers (0.58 square miles). Phase Two drilling will include the second
    Evolving has staked an additional 243 ha (600 acres) increasing its total
land position at the Rattlesnake Project to approximately 1,578 ha
(3,900 acres).
    Historical results (not 43-101 compliant) of the breccias of the diatreme
and graben have encountered drill intercepts including 149 m (489 ft) @ 1.62
g/t Au, 75 m (246 ft) @ 1.28 g/t Au, 60 m (197 ft) @ 1.05 g/t Au, and 101 m
(331 ft) @ 0.78 g/t Au. Approximately 60% of the historic holes terminate in
    The Rattlesnake Hills are host to an Eocene alkaline volcanic field
covering about 260 square kilometers (100 square miles) which is part of the
greater Rocky Mountain "alkalic" gold province stretching from British
Columbia to northern Mexico. Other similar volcanic complexes in this belt
host a number of large gold deposits such as Cripple Creek-Victor, Colorado,
Zortman-Landusky, Montana and Ortiz, New Mexico. Of all the known alkaline
volcanic centers in this belt, Rattlesnake Hills is one of the least explored.
    On its North Carlin District Properties, Evolving is completing its
initial drilling program at Sheep Creeks and has completed induced
polarization (IP) geophysical surveys and mercury vapor geochemical surveys on
the Sheep Creeks property and on its 100% owned Jake Creek property.
