eRESEARCH Maintains Target Price On SLAM Exploration

Nash Creek Drilling Results Highlighted in eResearch Perspective Report

TSXV: SXL   US-OTC: SLMF

MIRAMICHI, NB, April 8 /CNW/ - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSXV:SXL) (US-OTC: SLMF) ("SLAM") is encouraged by the latest eResearch report based upon "encouraging results from Nash Creek... spark renewed investor interest." The report further states that "Results…support the view that Nash Creek has the potential to be a much larger deposit than the 9 million tonnes of Indicated and Inferred Resource reported in the NI 43-101".

The value of Nash Creek may be further enhanced by results pending from Dense Media Separation ("DMS") tests on core samples from the successful drilling program at Nash Creek.  In addition assay results are pending from the winter drilling program on the Reserve Creek gold project. These are the most advanced in a portfolio of 18 gold, silver and base metal properties held by SLAM in Canada. With this valuable portfolio and a strong cash position, SLAM is uniquely situated to enhance shareholder value as gold, silver, and base metal prices surge higher.
