    MIRAMICHI, NB, Oct. 15 /CNW/ - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V: SXL)
("SLAM") announces an increase of $500,000 in an unsolicited, non-brokered
flow-through financing by the sale of up to 8 million Units priced at $0.25
per Unit to raise $2M. Each unit shall comprise one flow-through common share
("FT Shares") 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 private
placement. In connection with the private placement, PI Financial Corp. will
be paid a cash finder's fee equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the private
placement and will be granted compensation warrants equal to 6% of the
aggregate number of units sold, exercisable at $0.30 for a period of 24
months.
    The proposed financing will close on or about 18 October 2007. In
accordance with applicable securities legislation, the Units will be subject
to "hold period" of four months plus one day from the date of issuance of the
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.
