MIRAMICHI, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwired - July 6, 2016) - SLAM Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SXL) (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has staked a property referred to as the Cumberland Lithium Project comprising seven mineral claims that are prospective for lithium and related minerals in southeastern New Brunswick.

The six mineral claims comprise 65 claim units that cover 1457 hectares. The claims are underlain by salt bearing formations including two salt deposits known from previous oil well drilling. The salt deposits are up 6 kilometres in diameter and 500 metres thick. Chemical and geological characteristics of these salt formations suggest they are of non-marine origin and that they may contain lithium-bearing minerals and brines. In a previous regional soil geochemical survey, a sample from beneath the property contained 81 ppm lithium, more than twice the background of other samples in the survey.
