SLAM RECOVERS 20% GOLD FROM CONCENTRATE
Slam Exlporation (SXL.V) reporst a 122-gram (3.93-ounce) test sample of gold concentrate from the Maisie vein was submitted to General Refining Corp. "GRC" of Brampton, Ont., and returned an assay of 20.54 per cent gold and 1.63 per cent silver for contained ounces of 0.76 ounce gold and 0.06 ounce silver. The refinery produced gold at a 98% recovery rate and silver at a 90% recovery rate. After deductions by the refinery, SLAM was paid a net amount of $1,164 for the gold contained in the test sample. At the request of IIROC the Company wishes to clarify certain disclosure regarding its November 15, 2016 news release.
The 122 gram test sample was cut from a 2.1 ktion Sg batch of concentrate that derived from processing approximately 40 tonnes of selected vein material. Results are pending from an additional 2 kg of concentrate submitted to GRC. It should be noted that the concentrate was produced from selected vein material and may not represent the overall grade or average grade of the Maisie vein.
SLAM intends to complete a diamond drilling program to test for extensions of the high grade gold shoots at depth. Exploration of the Menneval project is still at an early stage and there is potential for discovery of additional high grade gold veins as well as extensions of the known gold shoots. The Company also intends to complete the 2,000 tonne bulk sampling program in the 2017 field season and continue to focus on high grade gold-bearing material from the high grade Blow gold shoot.

Authorization: A License of Occupation authorizes the Company to extract and process gold from this high grade gold vein over a two year period. Under this License, the removal and processing of a 2,000 tonne bulk sample has been approved by the New Brunswick Department of Environment and the Department of Energy and Mines. No drilling or blasting is required and no chemicals are used in the process. The purpose is to develop environmentally and commercially sustainable techniques to extract gold, provide an estimate of the grade of the Maisie vein and demonstrate the potential for longer term mining operations.
