SLAM Extends Maisie Gold Zone To 350m Strike Length

More Gold Visible in Bedrock-Assays Pending

MIRAMICHI, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwire - Sept. 11, 2012) - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SXL)(OTCBB:SLMF) ("SLAM") is pleased to report Trench MN12-01A has extended the Maisie gold zone an additional 160 m. The gold bearing vein has been intersected over a strike length of 370 m and has specks of visible gold along its length for approximately 230 m. This gold bearing vein ranges in thickness from 0.1 to 0.6 m with at least 1 site where it blows out to 2.2 m thick. It is mineralized with minor limonite, goethite, hematite and pyrite along with local specks of visible gold. The Maisie zone is one of several new gold discoveries being explored by SLAM on its wholly-owned Menneval claims in New Brunswick.

Trench MN12-01A follows the Maisie Zone beyond MN12-03 and MN12-04 both of which uncovered the visible gold-bearing quartz vein as described in a news release issued on August 31, 2012. MN12-01A was channel sampled at 5 m intervals over a length of 40 m. Channels were cut across the vein with shoulder samples of altered wall rock on either side. Other sections of the vein were carefully chip sampled where the trench was considered too deep to safely access for channel sampling. The Company is currently following the Maisie zone remains along strike with trench MN12-01B.

On a separate target, trench MN12-09 uncovered 2 cross-cutting quartz veins approximately 700 m southeast of the Maisie Zone. These veins are mineralized with minor limonite, goethite, hematite and pyrite and range up to 0.6 m in thickness. Trench MN12-11 has uncovered 2 quartz boulders with visible gold 2500 m from the Maisie zone. Additional trenching is planned to source these boulders. Assays are pending on approximately 150 samples from the trenches.

Mike Taylor, President and CEO states; "Considering that this is a brand new gold discovery, SLAM is very encouraged by these results. We have followed a bonanza gold vein for 370 m and are still chasing it. Our exploration team has identified approximately 20 high priority targets to be trenched after the Maisie zone. These targets include additional gold-bearing boulders up to 6 km away within what appears to be an extensive gold-bearing system on the Menneval property."

The Maisie gold discovery is 30 km north of the Lavoie gold occurrence where trenching produced grab samples grading up to 493 g/t gold on SLAM's NW Gold project as reported January 9, 2012. Recent detailed prospecting has generated a number of new trenching targets in addition to the original Lavoie gold discovery at NW Gold where the Company plans follow-up trenching to begin soon.

About The Menneval Project: SLAM holds 100% interest in 17 contiguous claims covering 25,570 hectares all acquired by map-staking near Menneval in northwest New Brunswick.
