The Company has issued 100,000 common shares at a deemed price of $0.05 per share to satisfy the first share issuance due under the Option Agreement. The securities have a statutory hold period of four months and one day that will expire on March 18, 2023.

Previous workers detected elevated gold levels ranging up to 16,200 parts per billion (“ppb”) gold in a soil geochemical survey completed on the Roger Lake claim in 2021. In addition to one sample at 16,200 ppb, a total of 121 sample sites ranging from 10 to 173 ppb gold that were detected in survey comprising 1904 samples. The elevated soil samples are in the vicinity of the Lepreau river gold occurrence (reference 563 – New Brunswick Mineral Occurrence database). The following quotations are copied from this reference: “Large flakes of gold (up to 5 mm) were found in the gravels of the Lepreau River about 4 km north of the village of Lepreau…” and, in the St. Croix Courier – Jul. 13, 1899, Lepreau, “Mr. Stafford has a fine piece of gold which was found on the Lepreau river and is about as fine a specimen as has been seen in the province.”

The Roger Lake claim is adjacent to and will be managed as part of SLAM’s wholly owned Jake Lee project. The Company reported two grab samples of float grading 39.3 and 1.49 g/t gold respectively 1,600 m northwest of the Cranford-Taylor vein on the Jake Lee project as reported Nov 17, 2022. The Company is mobilizing a prospecting team around November 22, 2022 to further evaluate these new gold discoveries
