H. M. VISAGIE REPORT POSTS COVERAGE ON SLAM - May Result In Significant Improvement in Economics For The Nash Creek Deposit


MIRAMICHI, NB, April 28 /CNW/ - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSXV:SXL) (US-OTC:SLMXF) ("SLAM") was covered today in the "Daily Report - April 28, 2011" by H. M. Visagie with the following comment: "The ability to upgrade the low grade open pit feed using a DMS plant may result in a significant improvement in the economics for the Nash project. The improvement in economics will depend how the metallurgical response of the upgraded feed in the flotation circuit and the overall impact on capital and operating costs are impacted."

Mr. Visagie's comments follow a SLAM press release reporting successful Dense Media Separation (DMS) test results on 4 core sample from hole NC11‐220 at its wholly owned Nash Creek property in New Brunswick with significant upgrades indicated on all samples. Sample 4, from the new zone beneath the NI43‐101 deposit was enriched 2.7 times to 2.33% lead, 11.95% zinc and 63 g/t silver. For further information, refer to the press release issued 27 April 2011.

SLAM is very encouraged by the results of this program. The DMS results are very positive. The assay results include broad intervals of silver, lead and zinc mineralization beneath the known deposit indicating potential for a much larger deposit. The Company is planning additional work designed to further expand the deposit in 2011.
