October 17, 2023 Off By Rueben Hale

Spartan Resources has discovered more gold immediately north of the Never Never deposit at Patient Wolf, part of the Dalgaranga Gold Project in Western Australia.

The First Reverse Circulation hole drilled to test the new gold prospect just 1600 metres north of Never Never returned 10.00m @ 19.84g/t gold from 96.00m, incl. 4.00m @ 40.15g/t.

The strike unfolds amid more thick high-grade assays at its established deposit and from the nearby West Winds area and Arc gold prospect as the company looks to build up a high-grade inventory within a tight radius surrounding its Dalgaranga Process Plant.
