Evolving Gold: Drilling Intersects High Grade Gold In New Gold Target at Rattlesnake Hills, Wyoming

Rattlesnake Hills

Location: Natrona County, Wyoming
Size: Approximately 14,000 acres
Mineral: Gold
Ownership: 100%

The 2011 exploration program at Rattlesnake Hills included a total of 8,193m (26,880 ft) of core drilling in 24 holes. Drilling during 2011 identified high grade gold mineralization at a new target at South Stock, identified a new porphyry target at Northeast Stock, expanded the North Stock mineralization, and confirmed the porphyry target between North Stock and Antelope Basin.
