("SLAM") announces completion, on 24 December 07, of a $1,000,000 non-brokered
flow-through private placement to sell 4,000,000 flow-through units at $0.25
per "Unit". Each Unit comprises one flow-through common share plus one half
share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant shall be exercisable into one non
flow-through common share of the company at an exercise price of $0.50 for a
period of two years from closing of the placement and will be subject to "hold
period" of four months plus one day from the date of their issuance. The gross
flow-through proceeds will be renounced for the 2007 income tax year. A
finder's fee of $50,000 plus 200,000 Finders Warrants was paid to PI Financial

The Company will use proceeds from the financing to fund additional

drilling on its Ontario gold properties and its other properties in New

estimate, a scoping study, environmental baseline testing as well as
engineering and civil work in preparation for a bulk sample. SLAM management
expects to incorporate these activities into a full feasibility study for an
open pit mining and milling operation at Nash Creek. The ultimate goal is a
low-cost mining operation that will provide many years of benefit to our
shareholders and to the Province of New Brunswick.
