Pacific Bay Minerals Ltd. Atlin Goldfields Option Not Proceeding

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, August 11th , 2023 — Reagan Glazier, President & CEO, Pacific Bay Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: PBM) (“Pacific Bay” or the “Company”) reports that the Company’s option agreement with  Brixton Metals Corporation (“Brixton”) to acquire  the Atlin Goldfields Project has terminated. The Company was not in a position to make the $200,000 cash payment to Brixton and notwithstanding Pacific Bay’s attempt to renegotiate the terms of the option, Brixton elected to terminate the agreement.

“Market conditions did not support the significant cash, stock and work commitments, including 3.1M in cash payments and 8.25M additional shares to be issued” said President & CEO Reagan Glazier. “Pacific Bay can now focus its attention on its 100% owned Haskins-Reed and Wheaton Creek projects.”
