MIRAMICHI, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwire - Dec. 12, 2012) - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (News - Market indicators)(OTCBB:SLMF) ("SLAM") is pleased to report the initial Diamond drill holes completed at its wholly owned Menneval gold project in New Brunswick. Holes MG1201 to MG1204 intersected the target quartz vein at hole depths ranging from 6m to 21m. The drilled thickness varies from 0.2m in hole MG1201 to 0.8m in hole MG1204. Two specks of visible gold occur in hole MG1201 at a depth of 6.0m, directly beneath trench Men1A where the Company reported a 1.1m wide chip sample grading 1100 g/t gold October 22, 2012.

Stepping 150 m westward, hole MG1206 intersected a 1m core interval of mineralized quartz vein at a hole depth of 12m. This intercept is directly beneath Trench Men12-49 where SLAM reported channel samples up to 40g/t gold over 0.2m and grab samples up to 618 g/t gold in a news release December 4, 2012.

Holes MG1201 to MG1205 were drilled at dips of 45°, 57°, 63°, 68° and 73°respectively and azimuth 330° from site 5083N on section 4493E. After hole MG1205, the drill was moved 150m west to hole MG1206 which was drilled at azimuth 330° dip 45° from site 5072N on section 4334E. Hole MG1207 was drilled from the same setup at dip 60° dip to test the vein at a depth of 24m. Assays are pending on core samples from the first 7 drill holes.

The 50 hole drilling program continues to trace the Maisie Zone westward from hole MG1207 on a grid established to provide spatial control for the drilling sites. The target vein and control grid are shown on a map at http://www.slamresources.com/projects/new-brunswick/menneval. The Company reported numerous sites of visible gold and bonanza grade assays uncovered as it traced the vein system over a 700m strike length.

Qualifying Statements: SLAM Project Manager Sara Lloyd, P.Geo. is the Qualified Person responsible for the technical information contained herein. 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.

About The Menneval Project: SLAM holds 100% interest in 18 contiguous claims covering 30,820 hectares all acquired by map-staking near Menneval in northwest New Brunswick. Four (4) of the claims covering 692 hectares are subject to a 1.5% NSR. SLAM can buy down 0.5% NSR for C$0.5M and has right of first refusal on remaining 1%. The extensive property hosts a number of new gold discoveries including the Maisie zone. It also covers 3 previously discovered silver-base metal skarn deposits where exploration programs date back to 1965.
