SKIPPACK, PA--(Marketwire - Feb 6, 2013) - North Bay Resources Inc. (OTCBB: NBRI) (OTCQB: NBRI) ("North Bay" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has executed an amendment (the "Amendment") to the terms of the Company's existing equity line of credit with Tangiers Investors, LP ("Tangiers") which renews the term by another 3 years and doubles the commitment amount from $5 million to $10 million.
As set forth in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on February 5, 2013, the Amendment to the Securities Purchase Agreement dated October 7, 2009 with Tangiers provides North Bay with the right, but not the obligation, to draw down on the equity line of credit by selling to Tangiers shares of the Company's common stock for a total aggregate purchase price of up to $10 Million over a five year period from the Effective Date of January 24, 2011. The dollar amount of each Advance is based upon the average daily trading volume in dollar amount during the ten (10) trading days preceding the Advance Note date (the "Base Amount"). Tangiers will pay the Company 90% of the lowest volume weighted average price of the Company's common stock during the 5 day pricing period following each advance notice as quoted by Bloomberg, LP on the OTCBB/OTCQB (the "Market Price"). Pursuant to the Amendment, no Advance will be made in an amount lower than the Minimum Advance Amount of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) or higher than the Maximum Advance Amount of Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) per 10 consecutive trading days after each advance notice is provided by the Company to Tangiers. The Amendment also provides that any advance notice that exceeds the Base Amount by up to 200% will be further discounted by 7.5% (or 82.5% of the Market Price), and any advance notice in excess of 200% of the Base Amount will be further discounted by an additional 7.5% (or 75% of the Market Price). Any advance notice in excess of 300% of the Base Amount is subject to the approval of Tangiers.
North Bay CEO Perry Leopold commented, "We are extremely pleased to have extended and enhanced our equity credit line with Tangiers, and we are grateful for their continued and unwavering support of our business plan as we proceed forward with our transition from an exploration company to a gold producer. At a time when we are still waiting for our prospective EB-5 funding for the Ruby Mine to be completed, this facility provides us with the financing required to resume operations this spring and move forward, with or without EB-5."
