North Bay Resources Inc. (NBRI) Executes Extension of Taber Mine Option Agreement

SKIPPACK, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/16/12 -- North Bay Resources Inc. (OTCBB: NBRI) ("North Bay" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed an amendment to the Taber Mine Option Agreement (the "Option"), dated November 1, 2011, whereby the term of the Option giving the Company the exclusive right to lease or acquire the Taber Mine has been extended for one additional year.

The Taber Mine is an underground placer mine located near La Porte in Sierra County, California, and covers approximately 650 acres of unpatented mining claims situated on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The mine is on a northern extension of the historic Mother Lode/Melones fault zone, in the Gibsonville mining district. The property is accessed by a paved county road from La Porte and is 27 miles from Quincy, CA, approximately 100 miles north of Sacramento and 90 miles west of Reno, Nevada.

The property is crossed by two channels of the ancestral Tertiary North Fork of the Yuba River. The Front Channel was exposed at the surface and mined in giant hydraulic open cuts in the late 1800's. The buried Back Channel was discovered around the turn of the century and mined in the adjacent Union and Bellevue underground mines. The Front and Back Channels converge into a single channel west of the Taber tunnel. A third channel comes in from the north. The Back Channel was only partially mined and over 4,000 feet of unmined channel is known to exist on the Taber property. The channels run parallel from east to west and downstream from the Melones Fault, the main structure along which many of the rich gold deposits of the Mother Lode are found. This proximity to the Melones Fault created very rich placer deposits that produced large gold nuggets and heavy pay zones.

In the 1990's, Sunshine Mining Company undertook a large exploration program on the channel system, drilling dozens of reverse circulation holes on the northern channel and reopening the Bellevue Mine property to the west of the Taber, including sinking a raise from the surface near the channel workings. Sunshine reportedly encountered quartz gravels and gold in most of their drill holes. The program was eventually terminated when metal prices fell and Sunshine encountered financial difficulties.

A 100 ton-per-day mill is in place on the Taber property, which at an average historical grade of 0.45 ounces per ton can accommodate production of more than 1,000 ounces of gold per month. The property is fully-permitted, and can be placed into production once the Taber tunnel has been rehabilitated and the permits have been renewed.

The current estimate shows the Taber Mine contains a mineable resource of 86,667 ounces of gold. The Company believes this resource estimate can be significantly expanded by the development of adjacent channels.

The consideration to be paid during the term of the Option is $2,000 per month. Should the Company elect to exercise the Option, the parties will then enter into a definitive lease agreement, with an optional buyout provision.
