North Bay Resources Inc. (NBRI) Completes Coronation Gold Joint-Venture Agreement

SKIPPACK, PA--(Marketwire - August 28, 2009) - North Bay Resources Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NBRI) ("North Bay" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has finalized and signed a contract with Lincoln Resources Inc. ("Lincoln"), a private Nevada corporation, to enter into a joint-venture for the development of North Bay's Coronation Gold Property.

Terms of the agreement call for Lincoln to commit up to $1.5 million CDN over three years for exploration expenses, developmental drilling, and surface ore recovery, with a minimum expenditure of $250,000 during the first year. Upon completion of the work program and fulfillment of all the terms of the agreement, North Bay and Lincoln will each own 50% of the Coronation Gold Property, and will equally share any and all net revenue, including any near-term profits generated from surface ore recovery operations. It is expected that a portion of any profits will be re-invested in ongoing development work on the Coronation's underground resources. In addition, North Bay has received an initial cash payment of $12,500 CDN from Lincoln, less a $2,500 CDN finders fee paid to an independent third party.

Coronation Gold is located near Memphis Creek, 6 kilometres northeast of Slocan in southeastern British Columbia. The property covers 309 acres over several reverted crown grants and includes four other past-producing mines; the Colorado, the V&M, the Senator, and the Homestake mines, in addition to the Coronation. Primary mineralization is gold, silver, zinc, and lead. The highest combined historical (post-production) assays are 16.8 grams (0.54 ounces) per tonne gold, 6000 grams (192 ounces) per tonne silver, 10.9% zinc, and 1.2% lead. Past-production at the Coronation has been documented to be as much as 13,000 grams (418 ounces) per tonne silver and 20% lead, while past-production at the Homestake mine averaged 23.3 grams (0.75 ounces) per tonne gold, 2611 grams (83.95 ounces) per tonne silver, 1.33% lead and 1.52% zinc.
