Evolving Gold Initiates Drilling at its 100% Controlled Humboldt Gold Project, Carlin, NV

June 17, 2010, Vancouver, British Columbia: Evolving Gold Corp. (TSXV: EVG) (FSE: EV7) (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has initiated drilling on its 100% controlled Humboldt gold project adjacent to its Carlin project in the prolific Carlin Trend of Nevada.

 

  • On May 3, the Company announced acquisition of a major, new, 100% Evolving Gold controlled land position adjacent to its Carlin Gold project.
  • The recently acquired land, the Humboldt project, totals approximately 36 square miles (93 square kilometers). The project lands are entirely outside of the area of interest of an Earn-In Agreement with subsidiaries of Newmont Mining Corp. The land is largely private and 100% controlled by Evolving Gold.
  • The Company initiated drilling with a 600 m (000 ft) precollar (EHB-001) to test the first of multiple targets defined by a geophysical program on the Humboldt project land holdings.
  • Diamond core drilling will commence once the precollar is completed and will target mineralization similar to that already encountered in drilling on the Company's adjacent Carlin property, and at the nearby Rain mine (Newmont Mining Corp.).

"We are pleased that our initial geophysical data have readily generated multiple drill targets on our new Humboldt project," states Quinton Hennigh, President and Chief Geologist of Evolving Gold Corp. "We believe that the gold system encountered in drilling on the adjacent Carlin project extends onto our newly acquired land controlled 100% by Evolving Gold. Hole EHB-001 lies on line between the Rain deposit and hole CAR-007 where Evolving Gold intersected multiple intervals of high grade gold mineralization."

Robert Barker, CEO, comments, "The start of drilling on our 100% controlled Humboldt project is a major step in Evolving Gold's exploration program in the Carlin Trend. Because much of the land is private minerals, and because Evolving Gold has access agreements for much of the private surface, the Company is in an excellent position for permitting and well insulated from any potential new royalties. Our exploration team has already demonstrated the presence of high grade gold mineralization on our adjacent Carlin project area, and we are confident that the same gold systems extend onto our Humboldt project lands."
