About the Maisie Gold Zone:

Since discovery in 2012, the Company has traced the Maisie zone over a 700 m strike length and to a depth of 45 m with trenching and drilling programs. During the 2012 trenching program, the Company reported numerous sites of visible gold with bonanza grade assays as it uncovered the vein system. The Company is planning additional trenching combined with bulk sampling of the bonanza sections of this vein. The Company also plans to test for extensions of the Maisie vein within the 10 km by 3 km soil anomaly associated with the vein system. SLAM's exploration team has already identified additional gold occurrences within this soil anomaly. The Maisie zone is described more fully in SLAM's presentation titled "Annual and Special Meeting, July 2013" that is available for viewing at . The Company intends to continue its focus on this emerging gold play.
