Namex to Expand The Search For Gold At Miminiska

TSXV: SXL   US-OTC: SLMF

MIRAMICHI, NB, May 9 /CNW/ - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSXV: SXL) (US-OTC:SLMXF) ("SLAM") and Namex Explorations Inc. (TSXV: NME) (trading status pending) ("Namex") are pleased to announce they have entered into an agreement on SLAM's Miminiska gold project in northwestern Ontario. The property is host to 9 gold occurrences including a 1.0 m core interval grading 64 g/t gold within a 7.2 m interval grading 9.47 g/t gold in hole MM10-01 as reported by SLAM news release 14 July 2010. This recent discovery is open at depth and along strike and flanks the KCR zone where SLAM had previously drilled 5.97 g/t over 2.0 m.

The Miminiska Property:

The property consists of 28 mining claims with a total area of approximately 4,912 Ha situated approximately 110 km east of the mining community of Pickle Lake and 40 km west of the community of Eabamatoong. Gold is associated with pervasive shearing and alteration within greywackes, iron formations, volcanics and porphyry bodies underlying the Miminiska claims. These favourable gold-bearing volcanic and sedimentary rocks are part of the Uchi subprovince which host the prolific Red Lake and Pickle Lake gold mining camps. Namex expects to complete preliminary exploration activities followed by diamond drilling to evaluate and expand these significant gold occurrences.  All Miminiska exploration activities will be conducted in consultation with Eabametoong First Nation.

The Agreement:

Under the terms of the agreement, Namex can earn up to a 70% interest in the Miminiska gold property, located near Miminiska Lake in northwestern Ontario. Namex can earn a 50% interest in the property by completing $800,000 in exploration expenditures, granting 2,000,000 common shares to SLAM and paying $140,000 to SLAM over a three-year period. Namex will also pay a finder's fee equal to 10% of the cash and share payments. Namex may earn an additional 20% interest in the property by paying an additional $200,000 plus 1,000,000 shares and expend $1,000,000 in exploration over a subsequent 2 year period. This agreement and issuance of shares is subject to approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.
