About The NW Gold Project: The initial gold discovery in this area was made by prospector Tim Lavoie on the NW Gold project 30 km south of the Menneval project. SLAM acquired the property through an option agreement and followed up with a successful prospecting and trenching program in December. SLAM has an option to earn 100% interest in the NW Gold Project which comprises 2 claims covering 6275 hectares of highly prospective sedimentary rocks located near Saint Quentin, in northwest New Brunswick.

About New Brunswick: New Brunswick is currently rated the world's most attractive jurisdiction for mineral exploration and development, as announced by the Fraser Institute, February 23, 2012. The Province has demonstrated potential for large mineral deposits and can be expected to generate mining operations well beyond the world-class BMS No. 12 mine operated by Xstrata.
