North Bay Resources Inc. (OTCQB: NBRI) ("North Bay" or the "Company") today issued the following update on the operational status at our Fraser River Project near Lytton, British Columbia.
The Company is pleased to announce that Mr. Dan Oancea, P.Geo, has been engaged to serve as the project manager for the Fraser River Project. Over the course of the winter, Mr. Oancea has visited the work site several times to formulate an enhanced mining plan for the upcoming season. We note that the previous mining plan was focused on the excavation of a number of test pits measuring 2x2x2 metres each. The new mining plan will entail the excavation of a single pit intended to reach or approach bedrock, and from which up to 20,000 cubic metres of material will be mined and processed. The mining operation is centered on an area that was previously sampled and which consistently returned significant precious metals values, the best of which were 5.68 g/t gold and 0.427 g/t platinum. It should be noted that these assays came from the top alluvial layer only. Based on historical reports and well-established placer geology the Company expects to encounter richer ground as it gets closer to bedrock.
As this new mining plan is a departure from the plan under which our previous mining permit was issued, the Company has submitted a new Notice of Work application to the British Columbia Ministry of Mines. Work will thus resume at the Fraser River Project upon the issuance of a new mining permit, which we hope to receive within the next 60 days.
Mr. Dan Oancea, P. Geo., is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 who has reviewed this news release for technical accuracy.
