SLAM Resumes Drilling at Nash Creek

MIRAMICHI, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwire - July 2, 2008) - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SXL) ("SLAM") announces that is has resumed its 10,000 metre drilling program at its wholly-owned Nash Creek Project in New Brunswick.

The initial hole (NC08-188) is located 200m south of the known deposit where it is intended to test for potential extensions to a depth of 400 metres. Other targets include resistivity, soil and gravity anomalies that indicate potential near-surface extensions directly to the east and north of the deposit. SLAM expects this drilling program will continue to generate results that will expand the deposit, as was demonstrated by drilling almost 20,000 metres over the past 12 months.

Based on a 43-101 compliant estimate reported 10 July 2007, the Nash Creek deposit comprised an Indicated Resource of 3.24M tonnes grading 5.47% zinc + lead with 27.8 g/t silver plus an Inferred Resource of 2.69M tonnes grading 4.42% zinc + lead with 20.0 g/t silver. SLAM has drilled 156 holes since this resource estimation. Assay results have been reported for 117 holes of which 90 encountered significant intercepts of mineralization. Final assay reports on an additional 39 holes are pending. The drilling program expanded the Nash Creek deposit to a strike length of 1400 metres and width varying from 100 to 300 metres. Thickness ranges from 3 to 45 metres with mineralization occurring at depths from surface to 130 metres.
