MIRAMICHI, New Brunswick, June 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SLAM Exploration Ltd. (“SLAM” or the “Company” on TSXV: SXL) is pleased to announce it has re-acquired the Lewis Brook silver property by E-staking. SLAM discovered silver at Lewis brook by diamond drilling 11 holes in 1999 and 2000. Mineralized intervals include 346.81 g/t silver over a core interval of 3.6 m in the discovery hole LB99-01 and 1227.71 g/t silver over a 2.20 m core interval in hole LB00-10.
The Lewis Brook property is underlain by volcano-sedimentary rocks similar to those hosting the Nash Creek deposit where Callinex Mines Inc. recently reported significant silver intercepts. SLAM is re-evaluating the results of the soil geochemical and induced polarization surveys it had completed at Lewis Brook along with the 1999-2000 drilling results. Silver was detected in all 11 holes as summarized in the following table:The core intervals described are drilled core lengths. The down-hole depths and intervals are in m. True widths were not determined. East and North coordinates (UTM NAD 83 Z19), elevations and hole depths are listed in the following table:The Lewis Brook property comprises 2 mineral claim covering 495 hectares acquired by staking on the NB e-CLAIMS portal. The property is contiguous to SLAM’s wholly owned Costigan property, accessible by logging roads and located 30 km northeast of Plaster Rock, New Brunswick.QA-QC Procedures: Core was delivered to a secure logging facility in Miramichi where it was logged. Selected core intervals were split with half core samples sent to XRAL Laboratories Ltd. XRAL completed a multi-element ICP analysis on all samples using method ICP70. Samples that run over 1% lead or zinc were re-analyzed using their method ICAY50. Samples containing elevated silver were re-analyzed using method CHAY50 and/or FA31G. The Company relied on XRAL for its QA-QC procedures including duplicate assays. The work was supervised by Mike Taylor, P.Geo. President and CEO of SLAM Exploration Ltd.About SLAM Exploration Ltd:
