Evolving Gold Intersects 2.48 Grams/Tonne over 146 Meters at its Rattlesnake Hills Property

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 8 /CNW/ - Evolving Gold Corp. (TSX-V:EVG) (OTCBB:EVOGF)
is pleased to announce assay results from the first three holes drilled of the
total 7,000 meter Phase One drill program at its Rattlesnake Hills project in
Wyoming. The assay results for the three holes were focused on three different
targets described herein respectively as the "North Stock", "Antelope Basin",
and "South Stock".

    North Stock Target

    The North Stock Target is a diatreme breccia approximately 700 meters in
diameter. Core hole RSC-3, the first of ten holes planned for this target,
intersected gold mineralization nearly continuously from 149.3 meters to a
depth of 295.6 meters using a cutoff of 0.5 grams per metric ton Gold (gpt
Au). This entire interval of gold mineralization averages 2.48 gpt Au over
146.3 meters. This hole includes narrower intervals of higher grade such as
13.83 gpt over 5.2 meters, with small grains (less than 0.5 mm) of visible
gold observed in several core samples.
    A detailed breakdown of results for hole RSC-3 are summarized in the
table below and is also graphically displayed on the company's web site at

    Core hole RSC-3 was drilled to 450.2 meters extending the mineralization
approximately 170 meters deeper than previous drilling by Newmont Mining. In
1994-95, Newmont reported drill results of 149 meters at 1.62 gpt Au in a
drill hole that reached a depth of 248.4 meters.
    Core hole RSC-3 demonstrates the potential for the higher grades commonly
present in alkaline gold systems. Ongoing drilling in the 2008 Phase One
program continues to test the North Stock target.

    Antelope Basin Target

    Approximately 725 meters south of RSC-3 in the North Stock target, Core
Hole RSC-1 tested the north edge of the Antelope Basin target to a depth of
431.9 meters. Mineralization in this drill hole is hosted in a lamprophyre
pipe exhibiting potassic alteration. RSC-1 intersected long intervals of
highly anomalous gold mineralization, including 36.5 meters at 1.46 gpt Au.
The lower zones of higher grades are well below any previous drilling, which
reached a depth of no more than 128 meters.

    The gold mineralization and geology intersected in RSC-1 extend favorable
geological features and significant gold grades into previously underexplored
areas. Additional drilling is planned in 2008 to further test this target.

    South Stock Target

    Core Hole RSC-2 tested the margin of the South Stock target in a largely
covered area, approximately 245 meters south of RSC-1 in the Antelope Basin
target. Because the hole deviated significantly to the right, it failed to
penetrate the target. In spite of this, the drill hole intersected long
intervals with low levels of gold mineralization, including 74.4 meters at
0.14 gpt Au starting at 72.2 meters down hole.
    This mineralization confirms an extension of gold mineralization on the
Rattlesnake Hills property well beyond previously indicated limits. Additional
drilling is planned in 2008 in the South Stock target, as these results may
represent a gold zone peripheral to higher grade gold mineralization.

    Rattlesnake Hills

    To date Evolving has drilled 3,900 meters and is currently drilling holes
9 and 10. With the two diamond drill core rigs on site Evolving intends to
drill six additional holes by late October. The Company is awaiting further
assay results.
    Rattlesnake Hills is a volcanic hosted alkalic gold system similar to
other volcanic complexes in the Rocky Mountain alkalic gold province -
including Cripple Creek-Victor, Colorado, Zortman-Landusky, Montana, and
Ortiz, New Mexico. Rattlesnake Hills is one of the least explored of the known
gold-bearing alkaline volcanic centers in this belt. Additional information on
the Rattlesnake Hills property can be found at the Company's website
    Evolving Gold has an option to acquire 100% of the Rattlesnake Hills
Property. In connection with the acquisition of the Rattlesnake Hills project,
Evolving filed a NI 43-101 compliant report which is available at
www.sedar.com. Readers are cautioned to review the NI 43-101 report for
comprehensive technical and background information regarding Evolving's
Rattlesnake Hills project.

    Additional Assay Information for Rattlesnake Hills

    The assays were implemented by the SGS Group. Samples were analyzed by 30
g fire assay and an ICP finish and all values over 10 gpt were re-assayed by
30 g fire assay and a gravimetric finish. All reported lengths for the
mineralized intervals are down hole measurements. Accurate estimates of the
true widths of the mineralized intersections are not available at this early
stage in the drilling program.

    Drilling in Nevada

    In addition to it Rattlesnake Hills drilling program, Evolving is
completing its initial drilling program on its North Carlin district
Properties in Nevada and has completed induced polarization (IP) geophysical
surveys and mercury vapor geochemical surveys on its 100% owned Jake Creek
