    HALIFAX, Oct. 25 /CNW/ - SLAM Exploration Ltd (the "Company") announces
the completion of the second tranche of its previously announced private
placement of flow-through units ("FT Units"). A total of 4,400,000 FT Units at
a price of $0.25 per unit were issued for gross proceeds of $1,100,000 in the
second tranche. The first and second tranches combined for 6,000,000 FT Units
to raise a total of $1.5M in the last two days. The Company expects to close
the third $500,000 tranche of the private placement in early November.
    The Company also announces it has arranged an additional private
placement of 2M FT Units at a price of $0.25 per unit to raise a further
$500,000 under the same terms and conditions as the current financing. This
additional private placement and share issuance is subject to TSX-V approval
and is expected to close in early November or sooner.
    Each FT Unit comprises of one flow-through common share plus one-half of
one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant is
exercisable into one non flow-through common share of the Company (a "Common
Share") at an exercise price of $0.50 for a period of two years from closing
of the private placement.
    The Company has adjusted the compensation paid to PI Financial Corp.
("PI") in connection with the private placement. PI will be paid a finder's
fee equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the private placement, payable in a
combination of cash and Common Share units ("Units"). Each Unit comprises of
one Common Share plus one-half of one Warrant. Each whole Warrant is
exercisable into one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.50 for a period
of two years from closing of the private placement. PI will also be granted
compensation warrants equal to 6% of the aggregate number of FT Units sold,
exercisable at $0.30 for a period of 24 months.
    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 shares is subject to
regulatory approval.
    The Company will use proceeds from the financing to fund drilling of
approximately 100 holes in addition to the 10,000 metre drilling program in
progress at Nash Creek. Although the primary objective is to advance Nash
Creek to the feasibility stage, some funds may be used for drilling on SLAM's
other base metal and gold properties in New Brunswick and Ontario.
