Recent Gold Discoveries in Northern New Brunswick

The initial gold discovery at SLAM’s 100 percent owned Menneval project was the Maisie Zone. SLAM’s advance scouting team discovered large boulders grading up to 118 grams per tonne of gold. Subsequent work led to their bedrock source and uncovered the Maisie zone in 2012. Trenching revealed about 15 sites of visible gold along the 700 meter strike length of the zone. Drilling shows that some of those sites represent bonanza grade shoots within the Maisie vein system. The zone is associated with a 10 by 3 kilometer soil anomaly containing multiple gold occurrences. Additional gold-bearing boulders near the eastern edge of Maisie have suggested potential for extending the zone.
