Meridian Gold Re-Initiates Drilling at Evolving Gold Corp's Winnemucca Mountain Gold Project, Nevada


    VANCOUVER, Nov. 15 /CNW/ - Evolving Gold Corp. (TSX-V:EVG) (OTCBB: EVOGF)
(FSE:EV7) ("Evolving" the "Company") is pleased to announce that Meridian Gold
Corporation ("Meridian") has re-initiated their drilling program at Winnemucca
Mountain, Nevada. Meridian plans to drill approximately 3000 feet in five
holes using a reverse circulation rig as a follow-up to drilling begun on the
property late in 2006. The Winnemucca Mountain gold project was optioned from
Evolving by Meridian in 2005 (refer to Evolving's website
for details of the joint venture agreement).
    Winnemucca Mountain is located in Humboldt County, in northwestern
Nevada. The property, which has excellent road access, is located about 25 km
northwest of Newmont's Lone Tree gold mine (pre-production resource reported
as 4.2 million ounces of gold) and 30 km southeast of the Sleeper gold mine
(1.7 million ounces of gold and 2.3 million ounces of silver produced between
1986 and 1996).
    As the Operator of the project, Meridian completed 12 reverse circulation
drill holes, totaling 2278 meters, in early 2007. Meridian's drilling targeted
the epithermal vein system which strikes NE across the large, 2115 hectare
property. Ten of the 12 drill holes intersected the vein system, and although
gold values were consistently anomalous (0.08 to 1.65 grams per ton of gold),
the intersections did not yield the moderate to high-grade intercepts that
occurred in previous drill holes by Santa Fe Mining (refer to earlier news
releases by Evolving Gold on for past exploration
results). The Meridian holes completed to date have ranged in depth from 320
to 900 feet and were targeted on the area around the historic high-grade Santa
Fe intersection in hole 83 which returned 5 feet (1.52 meters) grading 2.02
ounces (68.6 grams) per ton gold.
    The veins intersected in Meridian's drilling are locally up to 9 meters
in true width, and contain epithermal textures typical of other bonanza
systems in the district, including the nearby Sleeper and Sandman deposits.
Additionally, the vein intercepts are anomalous in gold pathfinder elements
including arsenic, antimony, and mercury.
    Exploration activity targeting epithermal gold deposits in the Winnemucca
area have increased with recent announcements of positive results at Sandman
by Fronteer Development Group (see Fronteer's November 8, 2007 news release)
and Evolving's recent announcement of plans to carry out a major drilling
effort on their large, 20 kilometer-long Siesta property lying between Sandman
and Sleeper. Both Sandman and Siesta, along with the major Sleeper gold
deposit lie along a roughly N-S trend approximately 15 kilometers west of
Winnemucca Mountain.
