SLAM Selling Base Metal Properties for Cash and Shares

Company Positions Itself To Focus On Gold

MIRAMICHI, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwired - May 18, 2016) - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SXL) (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has sold the Superjack and Nash base metal properties to Callinex Mines Inc. ("Callinex") (TSX VENTURE:CNX) of Vancouver, BC. In return for 100% interest, SLAM will receive $425,000 in cash or shares and $200,000 in cash over a 3 year period. The initial payment of $150,000 in cash or shares and $100,000 cash will occur on closing which is conditional on TSXV approval. SLAM will receive an additional $125,000 in cash or shares upon completion of a Preliminary Economic Assessment on the Nash property. If Callinex elects to make any of the above payments in shares, they will be issued at a deemed price of $0.50 per share.

SLAM will retain a 1% NSR on all future production from the Superjack and Nash Projects (the "Royalties"). Callinex may purchase one-half of the Royalties at any time for $500,000. In the event zinc prices exceed US $1.25 per pound and US $1.50 per pound, an additional 0.25% NSR for each price increment will be payable on mineral production from the Superjack and Nash Projects.

SLAM CEO Mike Taylor states: "This agreement is very timely. The Nash and Superjack projects have economic potential, and Callinex, a base metal company, is well positioned to advance such properties. With additional capital in the treasury, SLAM can move forward with a bulk sampling program on the Maisie gold deposit and intends to maintain its focus on gold."
