Management Comment

Spartan Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Simon Lawson, said: “These latest intercepts demonstrate the incredible potential of what we have found right in front of our processing plant at Dalgaranga. With the Never Never Gold Deposit we have really shown what can happen with a change in mindset and the more recent discovery of the Pepper Gold Prospect has demonstrated that we are really onto something very special in this under-explored greenstone belt.

“Our drill teams are taking a well-earned rest at the moment while we catch up on the frantic pace of drilling and discovery. Our geology team is now finalising the new Mineral Resource Estimate to collate our drilling efforts in the first half of this calendar year and update the Spartan value proposition. While we take a brief drilling hiatus, we are planning and prioritising our second half exploration program so that we increase our momentum and keep driving the Spartan juggernaut forward!”
