ATLANTA, April 8, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- Ruby Mining Company (OTCBB:RUBM) ("Ruby"), which conducts its operations through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Admiralty Corporation ("Admiralty"), today reaffirmed its position announced publicly on November 10, 2003 that International Recovery Group, LLC ("IRG") is defunct and further that neither IRG nor Ocean Resources, Inc. (OTCBB:OCRI) ("OCRI") nor any affiliate of OCRI has any rights to or interest in Ruby's Pedro Bank license or the Pedro Bank permit or the use of Ruby's ATLIS(tm) technology. Accordingly, Ruby disputes and denies OCRI's claim in a press release issued on Tuesday, April 6, 2004 that OCRI has the right to participate with Ruby in its Pedro Bank project.
