Evolving Gold Intersects 10.1 meters at 11.09 gpt Gold at the Carlin-Humboldt Projects, Nevada
VANCOUVER, April 14 /PRNewswire/ - Evolving Gold Corp. (TSX: EVG) (FSE: EV7) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from four drill holes at its
Carlin-Humboldt Projects on the Carlin trend in north central Nevada.
Results include 10.1 meters at 11.09 grams per tonne Au (33.1 feet at
0.324 oz per ton Au) including 3.1 meters at 29.75 grams per tonne Au
(10.2 feet at 0.869 oz per ton Au) in hole CAR-010.
The ongoing core drilling program includes one new hole, two wedge holes
and deepening an earlier hole.
-- Drill hole CAR-010 is a step-out approximately 26 meters west-southwest of hole CAR-007 (previously announced 18.3 meters at 11.7 grams per tonne Au). CAR-010, intersected 10.1 meters at 11.09 grams per tonne Au (33.1 feet at 0.324 oz per ton Au), including 3.1 meters at 29.75 grams per tonne Au (10.2 feet at 0.869 oz per tonne Au), within a broader interval of 22.3 meters at 5.69 grams per tonne Au (73.1 feet at 0.166 oz per ton Au). -- The company is drilling wedge holes from CAR-002, the first hole to intersect gold mineralization at the Carlin-Humboldt project (previously announced). Two wedge holes, CAR-002.1 and -002.2, have been drilled to the east and west respectively from CAR-002. Both intersected long intervals of low-grade gold mineralization including multiple narrower intervals of higher grade mineralization. CAR-002.1 intersected 0.7 meters at 8.18 grams per tonne Au (2.3 feet at 0.239 oz per ton Au and 1.5 meters at 6.81 grams per tonne Au (4.9 feet at 0.199 oz per ton Au), and CAR-002.2 intersected 0.6 meters at 17.42 grams per tonne Au (2.0 feet at 0.509 oz per ton Au) and 2.7 meters at 4.29 grams per tonne gold (8.9 feet at 0.125 oz per ton Au). -- The Company has re-entered drill hole CAR-003, a hole drilled in 2009, and has extended it to a depth of 1,396 meters. The bottom 121.9 meters intersected 0.34 grams per tonne Au (399.8 feet at 0.01 oz per ton Au).
“Assay results from our drill holes at Carlin-Humboldt indicate we have
discovered a robust, laterally extensive Carlin system, and one that
can clearly generate high-grade gold mineralization,” comments Quinton
Hennigh, President and Chief Geologist. “We now recognize two areas
with potential for high-grade gold deposits, one in the vicinity of
holes CAR-007 and -010, the other 625 meters southeast near hole
CAR-002. Data from these holes coupled with our newly acquired 3D
magneto-telluric model provide us with confidence in our exploration
going forward. ”
Exploration of the Carlin-Humboldt project is continuing with an
aggressive drill program. The Company is currently deepening CAR-010
to a targeted depth of approximately 1,200 meters. Results from the
remainder of the hole are expected in May. Once CAR-010 reaches its
targeted depth, the Company plans to drill a wedge hole to continue to
test the high-grade gold mineralization to the north. At CAR-002 a
third wedge hole, CAR-002.3, oriented in a northerly direction, is
presently underway. The company plans to drill three additional
precollar holes this month to offset these high-grade results. Eight
kilometers to the south in the Humboldt project, the company has two
precollars in place, ready for core drilling this spring.
The Carlin-Humboldt projects comprise of two adjoining land packages,
the Humboldt project which is 100% Evolving Gold controlled and the
Carlin project which is subject to an agreement with various
subsidiaries of Newmont Mining Corporation. The CAR-series of drill
holes are situated within the Carlin project.
