Trenching planned on high grade silver veins and REE targets
MIRAMICHI, NB, Nov. 3 /CNW/ - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V:SXL) ("SLAM") is pleased to announce acquisition of the Silverjack Property adjacent to the Nash Creek property in New Brunswick. Through an agreement with Northeast Exploration Services Ltd. and Terry Mersereau, SLAM can earn 100% interest by completing staged payments for a total of $40,000 CAD and 250,000 shares over a 4-year period. Vendor retains 2% NSR with buyback provisions for SLAM.
The Silverjack deposit comprises high grade silver-lead-zinc-copper veins discovered in 1956. Records indicate a forty foot (12 m) shaft was sunk in 1966 to explore the discovery vein. A 17 ton hand-sorted bulk sample removed from an open pit in 1975 returned 51.05 oz/ton (1750.3 g/t) silver, 14.3% lead and 10.2% copper. Previous drilling results range up to 19.42 oz/ton (665.8 g/t) silver, 11.32% lead , 14.35% zinc and 3.23% copper over 2.8 m and includes an interval grading 45.65 oz/ton (1565.1 g/t) silver over 0.98 m. The high grade veins occur within a mineralized skarn zone that was traced by drilling for a strike length of 1400 metres.
The Silverjack Property comprises 3 claims covering 48 hectares adjacent to SLAM's extensive Nash Creek property and 12 kilometres southwest of the Belledune smelter and seaport. The Company has already completed preliminary prospecting in conjunction with recent sampling for rare earth elements in this area. Assays are pending on 15 samples submitted for multi-element analysis. SLAM intends to complete trenching on silver, rare earth and base metal targets over the next few weeks and expects to follow up with diamond drilling.
