MIRAMICHI, New Brunswick, August 3, 2010 - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX.V: SXL) ("SLAM") is pleased to announce assay results from the second of 3 diamond drill holes on its wholly owned Reserve Creek project in the Fort Hope area of Ontario. Hole RS10-15 intersected a 30 m core interval grading 5.48 g/t (98.6 ft grading 0.16 oz/ton) gold. This includes a 5.36 m interval grading 10.04 g/t gold, a 6 m interval grading 7.26 g/t gold and a 1.38 m interval grading 33.85 g/t gold. Individual samples range up to 107 g/t gold over 0.3 m (1 ft grading 3.12 oz/ton). Significant drill core intervals are tabulated as follows:
Holes RS10-14, 15 and 16 were drilled from the same site at angles of 50, 60 and 72 respectively. Assays are pending on hole RS10-16 which intersected mineralized iron formation and volcanics similar to RS10-15. All 3 holes intersected core intervals with visible gold.
Reserve Creek gold mineralization is hosted within iron formations and mafic volcanics similar to the rocks hosting the historic Pickle Crow gold mine near Pickle Lake, Ontario. These volcano-sedimentary sequences are part of the Uchi Subprovince, a huge system of greenstone belts extending from Lake Winnipeg to the Hudson Bay lowlands hosting the Bissett gold mining camp in Manitoba and, in Ontario, the world-famous Red Lake gold mining camp as well as the Pickle Lake and Fort Hope gold areas.
Mike Taylor comments: "We are excited by these results. They indicate that our Fort Hope gold deposits contain high grades more commonly seen in established gold camps. SLAM's objective in the Fort Hope area is to develop high grade Red Lake style gold deposits and this is a major step toward that objective".
The core intervals described above are drilled intervals. True thicknesses can be calculated when more information is available. All drill cores were delivered from the drill sites to a facility in Fort Hope for logging and sampling. Selected cores were split or sawn with half retained for reference. Sampled halves were shipped to Act-Labs in Thunder Bay for gold assay. Standards and blanks were inserted in the sample batches to augment the Quality Assurance and Quality Control program of duplicates and standards utilized by the laboratory. Michael R. Taylor, P.Geo. President and CEO of SLAM is the Qualified Person responsible for the technical information contained herein.
The drilling activities have been performed in consultation with Eabametoong First Nation ("EFN") in accordance with a recently signed Exploration Agreement. This Agreement calls for EFN and SLAM to work cooperatively to advance the gold potential of the Fort Hope area.
