Evolving Gold Initiates Drilling at Malone Gold Prospect, New Mexico


    VANCOUVER, Oct. 18 /CNW/ - Evolving Gold Corp. (TSX-V:EVG) (OTCBB: EVOGF)
(FSE:EV7) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the initiation of diamond
drilling at the Company's 100 percent-owned Malone gold prospect. Malone is
located in the southwestern part of the State of New Mexico, U.S.A., in Grant
County, approximately 20 km northeast of the town of Lordsburg and 17 km
southwest of the Tyrone porphyry copper deposit. Approximately 1,500 meters of
drilling are planned in six holes for the first phase program.
    Dr. Lawrence A. Dick, President of Evolving states: "The Malone drilling
marks the beginning of a very aggressive drilling program that will involve
both core and reverse circulation drill testing of many of our gold and silver
prospects in the southwest United States, including at least six projects in
Nevada, between now and the end of 2008".
    Gold mineralization at Malone is hosted in highly-fractured crystalline
basement rocks and shares geological similarities to a number of other,
significant gold deposits defining a broad linear zone trending across New
Mexico, Arizona, southeastern California and northern Sonora. The property,
which contains historic underground workings and saw limited, small-scale
production beginning in 1884, consists of 80 unpatented mining claims covering
about 1,500 acres. The property was acquired by Newmont Mining Corporation in
2004, who carried out limited surface exploration. Evolving purchased the
claims in 2006 from Newmont, the latter retaining a 2% net smelter royalty
    Surface, geochemical rock chip sampling by Newmont and later by Evolving
has shown that gold and silver mineralization is hosted by planar quartz
veins, irregular quartz stockworks, and stringer zones. Of the 233 rock chip
samples collected by Newmont geologists over the property, 33 samples
contained between 1 and 23 grams per tonne (gpt) gold, while 25 samples
contained between 0.5 and 1.0 gpt gold. The target at Malone is a bulk tonnage
deposit amenable to open pit mining.
