North Bay Resources Inc. (NBRI) Completes Follow Up Geochemical Field Work at Brett West/Bouleau Creek Gold Property

SKIPPACK, PA--(Marketwired - Jul 10, 2013) - North Bay Resources Inc. (OTCQB: NBRI) ("North Bay" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed a follow up geochemical survey of its 100% owned Brett West/Bouleau Creek Gold Property (the "Property") in southeastern British Columbia, Canada. 

The Brett West/Bouleau Creek Gold Property is a road-accessible resource located 26 kilometres west of Vernon, British Columbia. Including recently-staked ground that significantly expanded and consolidated the Western zone, the property now covers 2,107 contiguous hectares (5,205 acres). The Western zone of the Property partially surrounds and is directly adjacent to Running Fox's Brett Gold deposit (MINFILE 082LSW110) where 11,970 tonnes grading 39.12 grams per tonne gold have been previously indicated by surface drilling and underground work. The Southern zone of the property below Bouleau Creek (MINFILE 082LSW069) features gold and silver mineralization over an area of approximately 1,000 by 600 metres. Historical assays documented in Assessment Report 21877 are reported to yield up to 34 grams (1.09 ounces) per tonne gold and 286 grams (9.19 ounces) per tonne silver. The Northern Zone above Bouleau Creek includes the Siwash prospect (MINFILE 082LSW046), which extends over an area of gold and silver mineralization measuring 3,000 by 750 metres. Historical assays in the Northern Zone are documented in Assessment Report 20226 to yield up to 5.55 grams per tonne gold and 16.6 grams per tonne silver.

In October 2011 a successful Pilot HMC (Heavy Metal Concentrates) Geochemical program on the Property was conducted on behalf of the Company by Billiken Gold Ltd ("Billikin") of Enderby, BC. Over 2300 pounds of sample material were collected, and subsequently processed and cataloged into 36 samples. As reported in a Company press release dated January 31, 2012, one spectacular sample in particular ("NB-60") generated a great deal of interest, not just due to its high assay value of 95.6 grams (3.07 ounces) per tonne gold, but because the sample came from a highly altered area in the Western Zone that has geological similarities to the Brett occurrence. In addition to the high grade and strategic location, the gold particles in this sample were pristine, angular in shape, and with sharp edges that suggest they are "low transport gold" and have not traveled very far. This further suggests potential for another lode gold deposit close by, similar to, or possibly an extension of, the nearby Brett deposit.

On May 14, 2013, a follow up HMC program was commenced on behalf of the Company by Billiken. This program was designed to return to the site where NB-60 was found to follow up on the previous findings along trend, as well as to assess the newly acquired claims adjacent to the work area. The program was concluded on July 1, 2013 with at least 46 samples collected. These are currently being processed, analyzed, and catalogued prior to being sent to ALS Chemex in Vancouver for assay. Mr. Murray Morrison, B.Sc. Geology, is also consulting on the project, and is assisting Billiken in an extensive megascopic examination of the samples before they are sent to the lab. Mr. Morrison has over 30 years of experience in the geological stratigraphy of the region, with a particular focus on the area bounded by Whiteman Creek and Bouleau Creek where the property is located. 

The Company will issue a follow up report once the samples have been assayed and an analysis of the results is complete.

In other news, and as set forth in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on July 3, 2013, the Company has recently sold its Fawn-Buck property in the Nechako Plateau region of central British Columbia to New Gold, Inc. for $166,650 USD. A portion of the funds received from this transaction has been allocated to the Company's 2013 exploration budget in British Columbia.
