MIRAMICHI, NEW BRUNSWICK -- (Marketwired) -- 09/17/13 -- SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SXL) (OTCBB:SLMF) ("SLAM") is pleased to announce a trenching program is in progress at its wholly owned Menneval gold project in New Brunswick. This follows a successful trenching and drilling program which extended the Maisie zone over a strike length of 700 m and to a vertical depth of 30 m after its discovery by SLAM in 2012. Trenching uncovered a mother lode type of vein with grades ranging from 0.14 g/t over 1.4 m up to 1100 g/ tonne gold over 1.1 m in one bonanza shoot (SXL news release October 22, 2012). Diamond drilling shows a similar pattern at depth with core intervals ranging from 0.60 g/t over 8.31 m and up to 121 g/t gold over 0.31 m as announced March 19, 2013.
The purpose of this program is to define the grade and scope of the Maisie vein at surface and to test for potential extensions. The Company also intends to extract bulk samples for additional laboratory and mill testing. Grade/tonnage definition and metallurgical test results are required in preparation for a mining lease application.
