MIRAMICHI, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwire - Feb. 11, 2013) - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SXL)(OTCBB:SLMF) ("SLAM") is pleased to announce a second round of drilling in progress at its wholly owned Menneval gold project in New Brunswick. This is a follow-up to a successful 47 hole drilling program completed in December. The Company expects to complete approximately 15 holes for a total of 800 m on the Maisie gold discovery within the next 2 weeks.

The initial hole MG1348 will test beneath hole MG1226 which intersected a 0.3 m core interval grading 104 g/t gold within a 4 m quartz vein interval grading 8.51 g/t gold in December, 2012. Hole MG1348 is designed to test the Maisie vein at a vertical depth of 30 m, 10 m below the bonanza intercept in hole MG1226.

Drill hole locations for the 2012 program are shown at http://www.slamresources.com/projects/new-brunswick/menneval. Photos of drill core with visible gold can be viewed at http://www.slamresources.com/core-shack/.

Qualifying Statements: Doug Clark, P.Geo. is the Qualified Person responsible for the technical information contained herein. Drill cores are delivered from the drill to a secure site for logging and sampling. Selected samples are to be split or sawn and sent to Activation Labs in Ancaster, Ontario for analysis. Activation Labs will analyze the samples by fire assay with AA finish followed by fire assay with gravimetric finish for gold values above 3.0 g/t. The Company uses blank and standard samples for quality assurance and control.

About The Menneval Project: SLAM holds 100% interest in 8 contiguous claims including 7 claims in the Menneval project and 1 claim referred to as the Border project that together cover 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 Menneval property hosts the Maisie gold zone. The Border property hosts a swarm of gold-bearing quartz veins known as Zone 9 located 700 m south of the Maisie discovery. Zone 9 has yet to be tested by Diamond drilling.
