SLAM Expands Cobalt Footprint

MIRAMICHI, NB, Oct. 11, 2017 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) --

More Claims In The Mineral-Rich Province Of New Brunswick

SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSXV: SXL) ("SLAM" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has expanded the Ramsay Brook cobalt property (the "Property") by staking 3 claims comprised of 86 units. The claims are adjacent to 2 properties acquired from prospectors as announced in SLAM news releases October 2(nd) and 4(th), 2017. The expanded Ramsay Brook cobalt property covers 2436 hectares located on highway 180 approximately 25 km west of the Caribou mine operated by Trevali Mining Corp. in the Bathurst Mining Camp ("BMC") of New Brunswick, Canada.

Nine holes were drilled on the property by previous workers in 2004. Reported intervals include 0.8m grading 0.956% cobalt within a 4.8m core interval grading 0.352% cobalt. Such higher grade zones typically occur within wider core intervals ranging to 24.8 m grading 0.180% cobalt and 0.182% copper. Significant core intervals from all nine holes are summarized in the table below:

The above noted drilling results are drill core intervals. True widths were not reported. A preliminary prospecting program is in progress to evaluate this cobalt-copper occurrence and prepare for potential trenching and drilling program.

QA-QC Procedures: The technical information referenced in this news release derive from two assessment reports written by a qualified person in 2004. The reports document the sawing of core and sampling procedures and include copies of the assay certificates for the drilling program.
