SKIPPACK, PA--(Marketwire - June 25, 2009) - North Bay Resources Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NBRI) ("North Bay" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has staked additional claims adjacent to its 100% owned Bouleau Creek Gold Property in southeastern British Columbia, Canada. The new claims more than double the aggregate size of the property and more than quadruple the measured extent of known gold and silver mineralization within the combined claim areas.

Bouleau Creek Gold (MINFILE 082LSW069) is a road-accessible property located 26 kilometres west of Vernon, BC, and which now covers a total of 2,510 acres. The original 1,225 acre property, now referred to as the Southern Zone, features gold and silver mineralization over an area of approximately 1,000 by 600 metres. 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. A sampling program in 2002 by Solomon Resources showed similar results, with assays up to 34.4 grams per tonne gold and 158 grams per tonne silver:

The new claims, now referred to as the Northern Zone, cover an additional 1,285 acres above Bouleau Creek, and include the Siwash prospect (MINFILE 082LSW046). The Siwash extends over an area of gold and silver mineralization measuring 3,000 by 750 metres. Assays are documented to yield up to 5.55 grams per tonne gold and 16.6 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 20226).
