SLAM Recovers Gold From Concentrate

SXL Website Updated With New Photos And Presentation From Maisie Gold


MIRAMICHI, NB, Nov. 16, 2016 /CNW/ - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSXV: SXL) ("SLAM" or the "Company") is pleased to report a 122 gram (3.93 oz) test sample of gold concentrate from the Maisie vein was submitted to General Refining Corporation ("GRC") of Brampton, Ontario and returned an assay of 20.54% gold and 1.63% silver for contained ounces of 0.76 gold and 0.06 silver. The refinery produced gold at a 98% recovery rate and silver at a 90% recovery rate. After deductions by the refinery, SLAM was paid a net amount of $1,164 for the gold contained in the test sample. At the request of IIROC the Company wishes to clarify certain disclosure regarding its November 15, 2016 news release.

The 122 gram test sample was cut from a 2.1 kg batch of concentrate that derived from processing approximately 40 tonnes of selected vein material. Results are pending from an additional 2 kg of concentrate submitted to GRC. It should be noted that the concentrate was produced from selected vein material and may not represent the overall grade or average grade of the Maisie vein.

SLAM intends to complete a diamond drilling program to test for extensions of the high grade gold shoots at depth. Exploration of the Menneval project is still at an early stage and there is potential for discovery of additional high grade gold veins as well as extensions of the known gold shoots.  The Company also intends to complete the 2,000 tonne bulk sampling program in the 2017 field season and continue to focus on high grade gold-bearing material from the high grade Blow gold shoot.

Authorization: A License of Occupation authorizes the Company to extract and process gold from this high grade gold vein over a two year period. Under this License, the removal and processing of a 2,000 tonne bulk sample has been approved by the New Brunswick Department of Environment and the Department of Energy and Mines. No drilling or blasting is required and no chemicals are used in the process. The purpose is to develop environmentally and commercially sustainable techniques to extract gold, provide an estimate of the grade of the Maisie vein and demonstrate the potential for longer term mining operations.

About The Maisie Gold Vein:  The Maisie gold vein is a high grade gold vein located within SLAM`s wholly-owned Menneval gold project in northwestern New Brunswick. The Menneval project comprises 12 contiguous claims that cover 5,000 hectares acquired by map-staking since SLAM's initial gold discovery in 2012.  Click on the SLAM website at for more detailed information.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control Procedures: Approximately 2.1 kg of gold-bearing concentrate was produced from about 40 tonnes of selected vein material using shaker tables at the Maisie sample site. The vein material contained visible gold but was not assayed prior to processing on the shaker tables. After drying the concentrate, a 122 gram (3.93 oz) sample was collected and shipped to General Refining Corporation of Brampton, Ontario for testing and refinement. The Company relied on GRC for Quality Assurance/Quality Control Procedures at their refinery.
