The core intervals described are drilled intervals.  True thicknesses are unknown. Hole RS1126 was previously announced by press release. Assays are pending on the last hole RS1147.

SLAM is encouraged by the drilling results at Reserve Creek. Since June 2010, 34 holes were drilled starting with hole RS1014 and concluding with hole RS1147 in March 2011. This program tested the Reserve Creek deposit to a depth of 220 m and over a strike length of 350 m. All holes intersected gold-bearing zones except number RS1138 which did not reach target depth. Results range from anomalous gold at 0.5 g/ up to bonanza grades of 274 g/t over 0.5 m in hole RS1016 and suggest 2 steeply plunging high grade shoots within a wider envelope of mineralization. The bonanza intercept in hole 16 occurs within a 16.85 m interval grading 16.45 g/t gold (press release 09 August 2010). Pending final results, further work is planned to test for extensions of the high grade shoots at depth and along strike.

All drill cores were delivered from the drill sites to a facility in Fort Hope for logging and sampling. Selected cores were split or sawn with half retained for reference. Sampled halves were shipped to Accurassay in Thunder Bay for gold assay. Standards and blanks were inserted in the sample batches to augment the Quality Assurance and Quality Control program utilized by the laboratory. Michael R. Taylor, P.Geo. President and CEO of SLAM is the Qualified Person responsible for the technical information contained herein.

About Reserve Creek Gold Project:
SLAM's wholly owned Reserve Creek gold project now encompasses 7120 hectares in 34 mineral claims located near Fort Hope, Ontario. Reserve Creek is part of a large and valuable land package with an expanding inventory of gold deposits centered around Fort Hope approximately 150 km east of the former gold mining town of Pickle Lake. The large greenstone belt surrounding Fort Hope has many similarities to the prolific Red Lake gold mining camp and has potential to be a major gold producing area. The Red Lake, Pickle Lake and Fort Hope gold areas are part of the Uchi subprovince, a major system of greenstone belts extending from Lake Winnipeg to the Hudson Bay lowlands.

The Reserve Creek drilling activities have been accomplished in consultation with Eabametoong First Nation ("EFN") in accordance with a mutual Exploration Agreement. This Agreement calls for EFN and SLAM to work cooperatively to advance the gold potential of Reserve Creek and other SLAM projects in the Fort Hope area of Ontario.
