Evolving Gold Announces Letter of Intent on Sale of Rattlesnake Hills Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 30, 2015) - Evolving Gold Corp. (CSE:EVG)(FRANKFURT:EV7)(OTCQB:EVOGF) (the "Company" or "EVG") announced that, as a result of the previously announced auction process, that it has entered into a binding letter of intent ("LOI") to sell its 100% interest in the Rattlesnake Hills Project ("Rattlesnake Hills") to GFG Resources (US) Inc. ("GFG"), a private company incorporated in the United States. The Rattlesnake Hills project consists of claims covering almost 14,000 acres and is located in Natrona County, Wyoming, USA. The Company and GFG act at arm's length.

Under the LOI Agreement, GFG may acquire Rattlesnake Hills by completing the following:

  • Payment of US$1,600,000:
    • US$150,000 upon signing of the LOI (paid as a non-refundable deposit);
    • US$850,000 within 3 business days of closing; and
    • US$600,000 on the first anniversary of the closing, secured by a non-interest bearing promissory note; and
  • Issuing to EVG 2,000,000 common shares of GFG at closing. The shares will be subject to resale restrictions and hold periods under applicable securities laws in Canada and the United States.

EVG has retained a 2% net smelter return royalty with 1% available for purchase for US$1,000,000 on production arising from the mining claims, save and except for 30 claims that are already subject to a pre-existing royalty. The Company may also be entitled to an additional 1,500,000 common shares of GFG in the event an independent NI 43-101 resource report defines an aggregate mineral resource (including the "inferred mineral resource", category within the meaning of NI 43-101) for Rattlesnake Hills of at least 1,000,000 ounces of gold within 4 years of closing.

It is anticipated that GFG will use reasonable commercial efforts to obtain a listing on a recognized stock exchange in Canada or the US prior to March 31st, 2016. Subject to the satisfactory completion of due diligence, closing will occur on or before July 20th, 2015.
