TSXV: SXL US-OTC: SLMF
MIRAMICHI, NB, March 9, 2012 /CNW/ - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSXV: SXL) (US-OTC: SLMF) ("SLAM") is pleased to report additional gold assays from its recently acquired gold discovery located at Saint Quentin, New Brunswick. A series of quartz veins were excavated in 3 trenches 100m along strike from the original Lavoie discovery vein. Of 31 grab samples collected from quartz veins as well as adjacent sediments, 25 samples contain gold ranging from 0.04 g/t to 7.18 g/t. These trenches are located 250m from Vein 7 where gold assays ranging up to 493 g/t gold were reported by SLAM in a press release dated January 9, 2012.
The trenches were excavated under winter conditions and only grab samples were collected. Grab samples are selective by nature and unlikely to represent average grades of the deposits.
SLAM is very encouraged by the further expansion of this new gold discovery. This initial program has generated spectacular gold grades and identified a gold-bearing structure over a strike-length of 250m. The Company plan to follow up with a program of soil geochemistry, prospecting and trenching designed to further trace this gold-bearing system.
About The SAINT QUENTIN Gold Discovery: SLAM has an option to earn 100% interest in the NW Gold Project which comprises 251 units in 20 claims located near Saint Quentin, in northwest New Brunswick. Combined they cover 6275 hectares of highly prospective sedimentary rocks with favourable gold-bearing structures.
Qualifying Statements: Derek F. Brown, P.Geo. and consultant to SLAM is the Qualified Person responsible for the technical information contained herein. Grab samples were collected and sent to Actlabs in Ancaster, Ontario for fire assay.
