North Bay Resources Inc. (NBRI) Reports on Tulameen Platinum Project Assays

Skippack, PA, Nov. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- North Bay Resources Inc. (OTC: NBRI) (“North Bay” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that lab results from recent fieldwork at the Company’s 100% owned Tulameen Platinum Project in southeastern British Columbia confirms prior assessments.  Assay results from ALS Labs in Vancouver show average magnesium yields of 26.45%, which is entirely consistent with previous reports.  As well, assays as high as 0.19 grams per tonne platinum, 0.15% nickel, 0.31% chromium, 0.014% cobalt, and 0.16% manganese were also reported.

During the recent fieldwork our geological team has also successfully identified and mapped a suitable location to extract a 10,000 tonne bulk sample as part of a mining permit application the Company intends to prepare and file in the near future.

We note that magnesium demand continues to be high. With the increased demand magnesium prices continue to rise, and have recently exceeded $5,000 US per tonne.

As previously announced, the Company is participating in a collaborative research project with the Environmental Economic Geology Laboratory (EEGL) at the University of Alberta's Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences to assess, among other things, the mineral carbonation potential of our Tulameen olivine to sequester CO2.  Samples of our Tulameen olivine have been sent to EEGL for precision analysis and evaluation of the olivine’s carbon reactivity. We expect to use the analytical results as part of proof-of-concept submissions to participate in the rapidly expanding carbon removal credit market.

A full geological assessment report to document our recent fieldwork will be filed as soon as data compilation is complete,
