Sparton Clarifies December 14, 2006 News Release According to NI 43-101 Reporting Requirements

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 15, 2006) - Sparton Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SRI) (the "Company") reported today clarification of the terminology used in yesterday's new release regarding its planned and possible acquisition of certain mining and exploration assets of Brigade 208 ("208") in Inner Mongolia PRC . The clarifications are necessary according to the current reporting requirements required under National Instrument 43-101 and relate to the use of the terms "resources" and "future production" plans for the Tugurege Mine which is part of the asset portfolio under evaluation by the Company.

The information reported on December 14, 2006 was determined by management to be material to the Company's evaluation process of the 208 production and exploration assets. It was reviewed by Sparton's internal Qualified Person ("QP"), and is believed to be reliable by local standards.

The Company however wishes to issue the cautionary statement that until the planned NI 43-101 compliant independent technical report for the Tugerege Mine and other assets is completed and filed, that there is uncertainty as to the accuracy and reliability of the reported information. This report is expected to be available within 45 days.

As stated, the stated resources for the Tugurege Mine calculated by Chinese standards, are non compliant with NI 43-101 categories and can now only be reported as "Potential Resources " within a range of 1.7 to 1.9 million tonnes grading from 4.5 to 5.5 g/t gold.

As well, while the future plans for expansion of production at Tugurege, and the projected metal production were reviewed by the Company QP in a feasibility study prepared by 208, this feasibility study is also non NI 43-101 compliant and cannot be relied on for accuracy and reliability until it is fully audited according to 43-101 reporting requirements, which will be done in the planned independent technical report referred to above.

The remainder of the information in the December 14, 2006 news release related to the 208 assets can be taken as stated.

Sparton's exploration and evaluation programs in China are being carried out under the direct supervision of A. Lee Barker, P. Eng., P Geol., the Company's President and CEO who is a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
