SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SXL)(OTCBB:SLMF) ("SLAM" or the "Company") announces that the Annual and Special Meeting was held July 26, 2012 at 2:00 PM at the Rodd Hotel in Miramichi, New Brunswick. The shareholders approved all 4 items on the ballot. Roger Frenette, John Hansuld, Michael Taylor and Edward Yates are re-elected as directors. McGovern, Hurley, Cunningham, LLP are re-appointed as auditors. Both special items including modifications to the option plan and a proposal for consolidation were approved. Management wishes to thank the shareholders for their continued support.
The Company intends to proceed immediately with the process of consolidation and anticipates it to take a few weeks. It is expected to better position the Company to maximize shareholder value with a continued focus on low-cost projects in New Brunswick. A detailed prospecting program is in progress to explore the road-accessible Maisie and Lavoie gold discoveries on the Menneval and NW Gold projects. Going forward, the Company intends to follow up the successful prospecting results with a trenching program to test both gold discoveries. At Nepisiguit, the Company is implementing baseline environmental studies as the first step in the permitting process to prepare for a potential open pit mining operation.
