Management Comment

Spartan Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Simon Lawson, said: “These latest drill-holes continue to demonstrate the untapped high-grade gold potential at Dalgaranga. Our drilling at the expanding Never Never Gold Deposit is consistently delivering high-grade gold drill intercepts, week after week, month after month.

“When you combine this with the high-grade intercepts that we’re also seeing from the nearby Four Pillars and West Winds gold prospects – such as 15m @ 6g/t gold including 3.0m @ 23g/t and 20m @ 3.5g/t gold including 6m @ 7g/t respectively, outside existing resources – you can see why we’re so excited about the potential ahead of us!

“We understand better than most just how difficult it is to exist as a gold producer with low grade ore feed and the consequential risk to cash margins. That is why as an exploration business we are focused and committed to finding high-grade ounces, delivering consistent high-grade resource growth and eventually solid high-grade reserves aimed at underpinning long-term, lower-risk re-start of gold production at Dalgaranga.

“These high-grade drill results continue to give us the confidence that we will succeed in our task to deliver value to all of our shareholders, rather than just talk about doing it.”
