MIRAMICHI, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SXL) ("SLAM") announces gold intercepts for the first 3 of 6 holes drilled at its wholly owned Reserve Creek property located east of the former gold mining town of Pickle Lake, Ontario. Gold bearing intercepts are reported from all 3 holes, the most significant being a 4.80 metres interval averaging 6.116 g/t (0.178 oz/t) including 24.765 g/t (0.722 oz/t) gold over 0.50 metres. Assays are pending on the additional 3 holes all of which intersected sulphide and/or quartz-bearing units with visible gold reported from one hole.

The drilling program at Reserve Creek comprised of 6 holes for a total of 1014 metres. These holes tested the historic Williamson zone over a strike length of 300 metres and depths ranging from 90 to 140 metres. The gold bearing zone is associated with sulphide and quartz stringers hosted by a magnetite rich tuff unit up to 20 metres thick. The zone is open at depth below these holes. Selected intervals and grades for the first 3 holes are tabulated as follows:
