The 2016 bulk sampling program focused on two high grade shoots known as the “Hook“ and the “Blow“.
These high grade shoots are represented by channel samples ranging from 5.17 g/t gold over 1.0m up to 49.5 g/t gold over 0.45m cut during a 2013 trenching program by SLAM.
The Company utilized local contractors to extract material from known shoots of high grade gold mineralization at surface using an excavator.
SLAM intends to complete the 2,000 tonne bulk sample in 2017.

The Menneval Gold project was the site of a new gold discovery made by SLAM’s advance scout team in 2012.
The initial discovery of the Maisie vein yielded a bonanza grade chip sample grading 1100 g/t gold over 1.1 m from a trench in 2012. Since then we have drilled 64 holes with grades up to 121 g/t gold over 0.31 m. The deepest intercept to date is a core interval grading 44.53 g/t gold over 0.85m at a depth of 30 min hole MG13-63. The deposit is open at depth.
