NEW BRUNSWICK - SLAM EXPLORATION of Miramichi, N.B., has published the assays from the final four holes of its 12-hole program at Nepisiguit, 20 km west of the Brunswick No.12 mine. The longest mineralized intersection was 6.09% Zn, 0.81% Pb, 0.21% Cu and 31.3 g/t Ag over 11.22 metres. The highest assay was 13.53% Zn over 0.67 metre.
According to Slam, the zone is currently open at depth and to the west where limited drilling by previous owners indicated a minimum strike length of 550 metres. A longitudinal section and drill hole location map is being updated for viewing at www.SlamExploration.com.
Having obtained such encouraging results, Slam has acquired the adjacent four-claim Cody property, where high copper values occur in the soil. The soil anomaly occupies the core of the Mud lake synform and may represent a potential extension to the companys Swamp Lake copper deposit.
