NEVADA CITY, CA, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 10/27/2014 – – Ruby Gold, Inc. (“RGI”, or the “Company”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of North Bay Resources Inc. (OTC Pink: NBRI) (PINKSHEETS: NBRI) (“North Bay”), is pleased to announce that the Company has staked additional claims near the Ruby Adit adjacent to the Discovery Channel. The Discovery Channel was described in a Company press release dated April 9, 2014 when the Company announced that new claims had been staked over a recently-identified buried channel now known as the Discovery Channel. The Discovery Channel is estimated to be at least 4,000 feet in length.
Ten new claims covering 200 acres immediately adjacent to the Discovery Channel have now been staked to expand the new discovery zone and cover an additional buried channel recently detected over the past few months. The new claims are the result of extensive study of historical geologic and topographic maps of the area and exploratory prospecting of the surface in the vicinity of the Discovery Channel that revealed the outcropping of what appears to be a second new channel. This second new channel is now called the Alling Channel, named after Mark Alling, a mining engineer who a century ago produced some of the most authoritative geological maps of the Rock Creek district of Sierra County, and which were used extensively to identify this new channel. The Alling Channel appears to run parallel to the Discovery Channel for at least part of its length. It is possible that one may be a tributary to the other and the combined channels are a tributary to the Black Channel.
According to Gary Clifton, P. Geo, the path of the Alling Channel is to the southwest and should intercept the Black Channel near Sally’s Alley. Access to the channel would therefore be possible from the Black Channel workings. A more direct route would be to drive a crosscut north-northeast from the end of the Contract Drift in the Ruby Adit and raise up to the channel. This would allow the channel to be bulk sampled. If the channel was determined to be rich enough to mine, a decline from the surface for fully mechanized mining would be considered. The distance from Sally’s Alley to where the Alling Channel daylights is about 6,000 feet.
As the Alling Channel is believed to be approximately 200-250 feet below the surface, initial exploration will entail a targeted gravity survey to define the rims of the channel. Once the channel width has been defined, vertical RC drilling will be done to better determine depth and recover a sample of the gravels. It would be practical to expand the same program to explore the Discovery Channel, which is somewhat deeper but within reach of a gravity survey and an RC drilling rig.
The Company intends to continue exploration of this new discovery when operations resume next spring.
