Evolving Gold Announces Epithermal Gold System Expansion at Jake Creek Project

Evolving Gold has reported the extension of the gold system size through the 2011 drilling program conducted at the Jake Creek gold property located in Nevada. The company intersected 3.1 g/t gold over 1.5 m and 0.605 g/t gold over 16.7 m in the hole JC-013, 0.676 g/t gold over 19.8 m in JC-006 and 0.873 g/t gold over 39.6 m in JC-002.

The company included drilling of 3,580.8 m, totaling 11 holes, in the 2011 reverse circulation (RC) program at the Jake property. The eleven holes were stepped out towards the east and the west from the hole JC-005, which was drilled during 2010 and encountered 11.3 g/t gold over 1.5 m and 1.33 g/t gold over 28.9 m.

A volcanic-hosted epithermal gold system that has lateral and sub-horizontal low-grade mineralized gold was defined through drilling. Gold in stockwork-quartz zones and locally banded epithermal veins are included in the mineralized gold. The drill program has shown that the gold system has surpassed a width of 550 m towards east-west and stays exposed towards the east, north and south.

The hole JC-013 validated the occurrence of many epithermal vein zones along with sooty pyrite, banded quartz and sulfidized basalt dikes. The clay altered, bleached and silicified tuff over Paleozoic siliciclastic rocks contain mineralized gold. Zones that contain gold have included the high concentrations of antimony, arsenic, mercury, selenium and silver, and volcanic-hosted, epithermal gold systems.

The company has planned to include further RC drilling, geochemical sampling, geologic mapping and aerial geophysics in the 2012 exploration.

A RC drill rig was used to collect drill samples for up to 1.5 m. The company sent those samples to Nevada-based SGS Minerals Services for preparation and to its Ontario-based SGS laboratory for analysis.
