VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 17, 2014) - Evolving Gold Corp. (CSE:EVG)(FRANKFURT:EV7)(OTCBB:EVOGF) (the "Company") announces that at its Annual and Special Meeting held on September 30, 2014, shareholders approved a share consolidation at a ratio of up to 20 pre consolidation common shares for 1 post consolidated common share or at any ratio of pre consolidation common shares in between.
