MIRAMICHI, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwire - Nov. 14, 2012) - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SXL)(OTCBB:SLMF) ("SLAM") is pleased to report bonanza gold values ranging up to 1980 g/t gold from trenching on the Maisie Zone at its wholly owned Menneval gold project in New Brunswick. This bonanza sample was collected at a location 300 m northeast of a sample grading 1100 g/t gold over 1.1 m reported by news release October 24, 2012. Additional results include measured channel and chip samples as well as grab samples tabulated below:

The above series of trenches Men12-01B to Men12-01D follow the eastern extension of the Maisie vein across several fault offsets for a distance of 200 m beyond Trench Men12-01A from which bonanza grade results were reported October 24, 2012. The vein was sampled at specific points along the trenches as shown in the Ordinate column above. Additional assays are pending from gold-bearing samples collected on a central section of the vein located to the southwest of trench Men12-01A. The 2012 trenching program has followed the Maisie zone for a strike-length of 700 m.
On a separate target 700 m south of the Maisie Zone, trench Men12-09 has uncovered a swarm of cross-cutting quartz veins. These veins are mineralized with minor limonite, goethite, hematite and pyrite and range up to 0.6 m in thickness. Trench Men12-11 uncovered 2 quartz boulders with visible gold 2500 m east of the Maisie zone but did not source these boulders. Additional assays are pending on samples from these trenches.
Qualifying Statements: SLAM Project Manager Sara Lloyd, P.Geo. is the Qualified Person responsible for the technical information contained herein. Sampling procedures include channel, chip and grab samples. In the channel procedure, samples are extracted using 2 rock saw cuts over a measured width (or thickness) of rock. In the chip procedure, samples are carefully chipped using a hammer and/or chisel over a measured width. Channel samples are the preferred method but in many cases the rock is too fractured for sawing and the chip procedure is used. Grab samples are used for preliminary testing and where channel or chip samples cannot be collected. Samples were sent to Actlabs in Ancaster, Ontario to analyze by fire assay with AA finish followed by fire assay with gravimetric finish for gold values above 3.0 g/t.
