The search for rare particles in the cosmic radiation remains one of the main aims of non-accelerator particle astrophysics. Experiments at high altitude allow lower mass thresholds with respect to detectors at sea level or underground. The SLIM experiment is a large array of nuclear track detectors located at the Chacaltaya High Altitude Laboratory (5290 m a.s.l.). The preliminary results from the analysis of the first 227 m2 exposed for more than 3.6 y are here reported. The detector is sensitive to Intermediate Mass Magnetic Monopoles, 105 < mM < 1012 GeV, and to SQM nuggets and Q-balls, which are possible Dark Matter candidates.
