The analysis of 380 m2 SLIM detector after 4y exposure at the Chacaltaya Laboratory (Bolivia) is presented. Part of the work is devoted to the study carried out for defining the most efficient etching conditions and calibrations of the nuclear track detectors used in the experiment. We report flux upper limits for magnetic monopoles with masses in the range 105 - 1012 GeV. Our experiment is also sensitive to SQM nuggets and charged Q-balls; we discuss the implications of our observations on the characteristics of these Dark Matter candidates.
