Nevada Gold Mining Interest Shifts to Higher Grade Feeder Zones
SARASOTA, Fla., Aug. 3, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Veteran minerals exploration geologist and Chief Executive of Evolving Gold (OTCBB:EVOGF), Dr. Lawrence Dick sees a shift in Nevada gold mining.

Dr. Dick told StockInterview.com, "In Canada, for example, most of the veins of gold deposits that have become underground mines are normally running on the order of 0.3 to 0.5 ounces per ton over 1.5 meters to two meters width. This can constitute an economic grade for these deposits."
