/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

MIRAMICHI, NB, Dec. 18 /CNW/ - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V:SXL) ("SLAM") is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of up to 6,000,000 flow-through units ("FT Units") at a price of $0.05 per FT Unit to the MineralFields Group for gross proceeds of up to $300,000.00 (the "Offering"). Each FT Unit shall consist of one flow-through common share and one-half of one non-flow-through common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one non flow-through common share of the company ("Common Share") at a price of $0.10 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the Offering.

SLAM will pay a cash finder's fee equal to 5% of the proceeds raised by the MineralFields Group and will issue finders options equal to 10% of the number of FT Units subscribed for by the MineralFields Group. Each finders option is exercisable for non-flow-through units on terms similar to the FT Units.

Proceeds of the private placement will be used to fund exploration activities on SLAM's gold, silver, base metal and rare earth projects in Canada. In accordance with applicable securities legislation, the FT Units are subject to a "hold period" of four months plus one day from the date of issuance of the FT Units. The financing and issuance of the FT Units is subject to regulatory approval.

"We are very pleased to be expanding this relationship with MineralFields Group," said Mike Taylor, President and CEO. "This is another big step forward by SLAM and we look forward to working with MineralFields Group as we develop our gold, silver and base metal deposits in Canada."
