SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V: SXL) is pleased to announce acquisition by staking 2 additional claims comprising 109 units. This increases SLAM cobalt holdings by 95% to cover 4884 hectares of volcano-sedimentary strata located on highway 180 approximately 25 km west of the Caribou mine operated by Trevali Mining Corp. in the Bathurst Mining Camp of New Brunswick, Canada.
The new claims were staked to cover potential extensions of the Ramsay cobalt occurrence suggested by the presence of anomalous cobalt levels in steams sediments collected for previous government surveys. Anomalous cobalt levels of 39 ppm, 75 ppm and 49 ppm were detected 0.5, 6.0 and 9.0 km respectively northwest of the Ramsay occurrence (arithmetic mean is 12 ppm and standard deviation is 5 ppm in a collection of 2160 stream sediment samples).
These claims follow previous acquisitions that combine to form the Ramsay cobalt “Property” as disclosed in a news release issued by the Company on January 9, 2018 as well as releases on October 2 and 4, 2017. The Property is host to the Ramsay cobalt occurrence, where nine holes were drilled on the Ramsay cobalt property by previous workers in 2004. Reported intervals include 0.8m grading 0.956% cobalt within a 4.8m core interval grading 0.352% cobalt. Such higher grade zones typically occur within longer core intervals ranging to 24.8 m grading 0.180% cobalt and 0.182% copper. Significant core intervals from all nine holes are summarized in the table below:
The above noted drilling results are drill core intervals. True widths were not reported.
The drill hole data referenced in this news release derive from two assessment reports written by a qualified person in 2004. The reports document the sawing of core and sampling procedures and include copies of the assay certificates for the drilling program. The assays were done using the ICP70 method by SGS Canada Inc. of Toronto, Ontario.

Utilizing a technical database that covers the entire BMC, the Company has acquired 15 projects covering 32,000 hectares of mineral land in this mineral-producing district. These include the Portage, North Rim, Connector and Lower 44 zinc projects as well as the Ramsay cobalt project.
