First Bauxite Corporation Announces Filing of Third Quarter 2016 Financial Statements and MD&A and Amended and Restated First Quarter and Second Quarter 2016 Financial Statements and MD&A's

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA--(Marketwired - Nov. 29, 2016) - First Bauxite Corporation (TSX VENTURE:FBX)(FRANKFURT:FBI)(BERLIN:FBI) ("First Bauxite" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed its unaudited quarterly financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the period ended September 30, 2016. Additionally, the Company announces that it has filed amended and restated unaudited interim financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 ("Q1") and for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2016 ("Q2"). All filings referenced above are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company's website at www.firstbauxite.com.

The Company recently became aware of an inadvertent error in the consolidation process used in compiling the Q1 financial statements. The error resulted in the Company including the operating results from one of the Company's subsidiaries, Guyana Industrial Minerals Incorporated, for the period October 1, 2015 through March 31, 2016 instead of from the period from January 1, 2016 through March 31, 2016. Additionally, the foreign exchange gain or loss for the period ending March 31, 2016 and its impact on other comprehensive income was calculated using an incorrect exchange rate. Both errors were carried forward into the Q2 six month operating results. The Company has taken the necessary actions to remediate the control deficiency. The financial statements and related MD&As have been amended to eliminate the previous errors.

These corrections resulted in adjustments to the Company's Condensed Consolidated Interim Statements of Loss and Comprehensive Loss as follows:
