SLAM Menneval Gold Project Samples Grade Up to 363 g/t Gold
MIRAMICHI, New Brunswick, Oct. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SLAM Exploration Ltd. (“SLAM” or the “Company” on TSXV: SXL) is pleased to announce assay results on grab samples from trenching on its wholly owned Menneval Gold project in northwestern New Brunswick. Two samples grading 53.8 g/t and 363.0 f/t confirm the report of visible gold reported from two of the veins in SLAM news release August 25, 2020.
The results include 3 samples grading 53.80 g/t gold, 59.30 g/t gold and 363.00 g/t gold collected from 3 separate veins and 10 samples ranging from 1.20 g/t gold to 5.86 g/t gold in 7 separate veins. In addition, 21 samples range from 0.12 to 0.79 g/t gold and 5 samples range from 0.02 to 0.05 g/t gold. In summary, all 39 samples collected from the newly discovered veins contain gold ranging from 0.02 to 363.00 g/t gold.Nine of the veins occur as a series of en echelon veins along a structure extending 140 m southwest of Zone 9. The veins range up to 50 m long and 1 m thick and are mineralized with limonite and locally pyrite. These new veins are an extension and combine with the original Zone 9 veins for an overall strike length of 300 m. Zone 9 is located 500 m south of the Maisie zone and was discovered in 2012. A separate vein occurs an additional 230 m along the same trend to the southwest. Samples 34108, 34112 and 34118 grading 363.00 g/t, 5.86 g/t and 2.93 g/t respectively were collected from this vein.The Company has resumed the trenching program to further test these 10 newly discovered gold veins as well as the original Zone 9 veins, some of which remain open along strike. The 10 veins combine with the Zone 9 veins for an overall strike length of 500m. Results are pending from 282 soil samples that may assist the Company in the search for potential new veins and extensions. Following this trenching program, the Company expects a potential resumption of diamond drilling activities to test these new gold occurrences.Of the 39 samples collected, 29 samples occur in the range 0.02 to 0.99 g/t gold and 13 samples contain gold in the range 1.00 to 363.00 g/t gold. The results for these 13 samples are listed in the table below:The exploration program is supported in part by a $30,000 contribution to the Menneval gold project under the New Brunswick Junior Mining Assistance Program.The Menneval Project: Based on the new gold discovery, the Company staked 118 additional claim units covering an additional 2530 hectares at Menneval.
