Evolving Gold Announces Additional Assay Results from Rattlesnake Hills Project

Evolving Gold Corp. (TSXV: EVG) (FSE: EV7) has announced additional assay results from its 2010 core drilling program at its Rattlesnake Hills project in central Wyoming.

Drill hole RSC-126 intersected 161.5 meters at 1.84 gpt Au, including 76.2 meters at 3.14 gpt Au. Drill hole RSC-128 intersected 224.0 meters at 1.03 gpt Au, including 29.0 meters at 2.21 gpt Au. Both of these drill holes expand the North Stock zone of gold mineralization at depth.

Summary of Results:

  • Drill hole RSC-126 intersected 161.5 meters at 1.84 gpt Au (530 ft at 0.054 opt Au). This includes 76.2 meters at 3.14 gpt Au (250 ft at 0.092 opt Au), which also includes two shorter intervals of 7.6 meters at 7.29 gpt Au (25 ft at 0.213 opt Au) and 3.9 meters at 18.77 gpt Au (13 ft at 0.548 opt Au).
  • Drill hole RSC-128 intersected 224.0 meters at 1.03 gpt Au (735 ft at 0.030 opt Au) including 29.0 meters at 2.21 gpt Au (95 ft at 0.065 opt Au).
  • Two wedge holes, RSC-111.1 and RSC-118.1, were designed to be the first tests of the deep porphyry target to the southeast of North Stock. Both returned broad intersections of low grade gold mineralization associated with numerous porphyry dikes. Included in the intersection in RSC-111.1 was 56.4 meters at 1.02 gpt Au (185 ft at 0.030 opt Au) which also included 22.9 meters at 1.67 gpt Au (75 ft at 0.049 opt Au).
  • Two drill holes, RSC-121 and RSC-124, were designed as a first test of the Southeast target, about 500-700 meters southeast of North Stock. Both drill holes encountered gold mineralization in this new target area.

Drill holes, RSC-126 and RSC-128, were set on the southern margin of the North Stock diatreme complex and were designed to drill to the north to test the full width of the North Stock target at depth. The results from these drill holes indicate that the North Stock mineralization extends to depths of at least 300 meters in the central portion of the mineralized zone.

"Drill holes RSC-126 and RSC-128 have provided excellent results across the width of the North Stock zone of gold mineralization at deeper levels," says Quinton Hennigh, President and Chief Geologist of Evolving Gold Corp. "These holes, along with other infill drill holes awaiting assays, should allow us to evaluate the open pit potential of the Rattlesnake Hills project. We are encouraged, as well, with the first results from deep tests of the porphyry target southeast of North Stock. Results from these drill holes confirm a strong association of broad zones of gold mineralization with gold-bearing porphyry dikes. In addition, our programs of geological mapping and sampling this summer, along with the results from the first drill holes in the Southeast target, support the exploration potential outside of the North Stock and Antelope Basin areas."

With the onset of winter weather conditions in central Wyoming, the company has wound down its drilling program for 2010. Winterization of the roads and drill sites, as required by the regulatory agencies, is complete. A total of 63 core holes were completed for approximately 25,600 meters (84,000 ft) of drilling. Assays are still pending for 28 drill holes.

Mineralized Intervals, Rattlesnake Hills Drilling:

North Stock Zone

These intervals are broad zones of gold mineralization associated with porphyry dikes. Lower grade intervals are included in the averages for these intervals.

Porphyry Target, Southeast of North Stock

These intervals are broad zones of gold mineralization associated with porphyry dikes. Lower grade intervals are included in the averages for these intervals.

Holes RSC-111.1 and RSC-118.1 are wedge holes from previously released holes, with wedges set at approximately 298 meters down hole.

Southeast Target

Drill hole RSC-119 encountered low level gold mineralization in an area about 300 meters southwest of Antelope Basin. Drill hole RSC-127 intersected low level gold mineralization in an area about 250 meters southeast of North Stock. Results from RSC-122 and RSC-123 were previously reported on October 7, 2010.

All drill hole averages are weighted averages, weighting each assay interval according to the core length for that assay interval. All assay intervals are included in the average, with no bottom cut-off. True widths of mineralization in these drill holes, at this stage of exploration, are not precisely known. Gold assays were completed by SGS Canada Inc. in Toronto, using a 30 gram charge, fire assay, with an ICP finish.
