MIRAMICHI, NB, March 24 /CNW/ - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V: SXL) ("SLAM") announces a proposed private placement of up to 5,000,000 flow-through Units at a price of $0.075 per Unit for total gross proceeds of $375,000. Each Unit is comprised of one flow-through common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one non-flow-through common share at a price of $0.10 per share for a period of 12 months and at a price of $0.20 for an additional 12 months thereafter, expiring 24 months after issuance. The Units will be subject to a four-month hold period from the closing date of the offering. This private placement remains subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

SLAM expects to raise at least $150,000 of the financing by placement of 2M Units with Norstar Securities LP. SLAM will pay Norstar a cash fee equal to 7% of the funds raised by Norstar and finders warrants equal to 7% of the Units placed by Norstar. Finders warrants are on terms similar to warrants described above.
