MIRAMICHI, New Brunswick, May 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSXV: SXL) (the “Company” or “SLAM”) announces that it has closed a private placement of 6,055,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of $302,750.00 (the “Private Placement”). Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (the “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common Share at a price of $0.08 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. The Units are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day which will expire on September 5, 2023.

In connection with the closing, the Company issued 298,000 Finder Warrants and paid $14,900.00 in cash as Finders’ Fees. Proceeds received from the Units will be used for corporate purposes and to fund exploration on SLAM's gold and critical element projects in Canada with the main focus on New Brunswick.

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to sell any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.

MI 61-101 Disclosure

One insider of the Company participated in the Private Placement for an aggregate total of 500,000 Units. The participation by such insiders is considered a “related-party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company has relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of related party participation in the placement as neither the fair market value (as determined under MI 61-101) of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involved the related parties, exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization (as determined under MI 61-101).

The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Private Placement as the details of the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing of the Private Placement and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons. The Private Placement remains subject to final acceptance from the TSX Venture Exchange.
