Program Designed To Test Recent 2020 Gold Discoveries
MIRAMICHI, New Brunswick, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SLAM Exploration Ltd. (“SLAM” or the “Company” on TSXV: SXL) is pleased to announce it has received approval from the NBDRED for the proposed 2021 trenching and drilling program at the Menneval gold project located in the mineral-rich province of New Brunswick. The trenching program will test new 2020 gold discoveries, gold soil anomalies and other priority targets with significant potential for additional gold discoveries.
Targets include three veins: No 2, No 18 and No 22 where the Company reported visible gold in 2020. Grab samples from the No 2 vein ranged up to grading 363.00 g/t and up to 11.30 g/t in vein No 22. Multiple sites of visible gold were supported by assay results grading 1.22 to 3,955 g/t gold over widths ranging from 0.04 to 0.12 m thick as reported December 03, 2020. These veins are part of a swarm of gold-bearing veins extending eastward over a strike-length of 1,100 m. This vein system has only been tested intermittently and is open eastward.
The trenching program will also test gold Trend A over a strike length of 1,800 m. Trend A is a region of elevated gold values up to 150 m wide where soils contain from 20 ppb to 206 ppb gold as reported on January 19, 2021. Three other soil trends B, C and D were reported. The Company expects to start testing these priority targets by trenching on or about May 18, 2021.
The Menneval Project: The expanded Menneval Gold project is comprised of 572 mineral claim units covering 12,390 hectares located in northwestern New Brunswick. The Company holds a 100% interest in these claims with the exception of 4 claim units covering 105 hectares that are subject to a 1.5% NSR. The Company can buy down 0.5% of the NSR for $500,000 and it has the right of first refusal on the remaining 1% NSR. The Company has applied for funding assistance up to $100,000 under the New Brunswick Junior Mining Assistance Program.
