Slam Uncovers Gold Bearing Quartz Veins
SLAM Exploration Ltd. is pleased to report it has uncovered several quartz veins with visible gold within bedrock in a trenching operation underway at the recently acquired “Saint-Quentin” gold discovery in northwest New Brunswick. The vein in the trench photo contains multiple flecks of gold and is directly beneath the original gold-bearing boulders discovered by Tim Lavoie.
The gold-bearing veins are exposed over a strike length of 250m. The trenching operation continues to test for additional veins along strike by following boulders found by our prospecting team. Assays are pending on samples of quartz veins and wallrock.
CEO Mike Taylor considers the find “highly encouraging this early into exploration” and suggested that “this sets the stage for a very aggressive exploration campaign”. The discovery of quartz veins with visible gold in bedrock increases the potential for an economical gold deposit at Saint-Quentin.
