International Cobalt Acquires Ramsay Cobalt Property From SLAM

TSXV: SXL

MIRAMICHI, NB , May 2, 2018 /CNW/ - SLAM Exploration Ltd. ("SLAM" on TSXV: SXL) announces it has received the initial payment of $50,000 and 500,000 shares pursuant to an Agreement with International Cobalt ("Cobalt" on CSE: CO). Cobalt can earn 100% interest in the Ramsay Cobalt Property by completing an additional $450,000 in cash and 2,000,000 in share payments over a 2 year period.  SLAM retains a 2% NSR royalty of which Cobalt may buy down 1% NSR at any time for $1M .

The 8-claim Ramsay cobalt property covers 2500 hectares located on highway 180 approximately 25 km west of the Caribou mine operated by Trevali Mining Corp. in the Bathurst Mining Camp ("BMC") of New Brunswick, Canada .  Well-developed infrastructure includes paved road access and nearby electric power within a well-known mining camp administered by a mining friendly jurisdiction.

CEO Mike Taylor states, "We congratulate International Cobalt on this timely acquisition and welcome them to the mineral-rich Province of New Brunswick ."

The Ramsay Cobalt Property:   Previous operators identified cobalt and copper mineralization over a 650m strike length through trenching, geochemical and ground based geophysics followed by a limited drilling program totaling 1321 meters.  The mineralized zone remains open along strike and at depth.

Nine holes were drilled on the Ramsay cobalt property by previous workers in 2004. Reported intervals include 0.8m grading 0.956% cobalt within a 4.8m core interval grading 0.352% cobalt. Such higher grade zones typically occur within wider core intervals ranging to 24.8 m grading 0.180% cobalt and 0.182% copper. Significant core intervals from all nine holes are summarized in the table below:
