Sparton Resources Inc.: SBD Drill Program Underway in Battle Mountain Nevada; Flow Through Financing Closed

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 9, 2007) - Sparton Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SRI) (the "Company") announced today that a 1500 meter reverse circulation drill program testing its 100% owned SBD Gold Property in the Battle Mountain area of Nevada has started and is expected to continue through until the end of April, 2007. Three holes have now been completed on the South Zone and holes are planned for the West and North zones as well, before testing at least one of the new geophysical targets.

SBD is an under explored area in the context of modern concepts of gold emplacement in this part of Nevada. This initial drill program will serve to confirm earlier exploration data and begin testing the exciting new targets located by the geophysical program. Initial assay results from this drilling are expected in 3-4 weeks.

Maps of the target areas and compiled geophysical results are available on the Company Website,

Limited Market Dealer Inc. has received a (cash) 7 % Finders Fee on the proceeds, and Finders Fee Options equal to 5% of the number of Units subscribed for (total 100,000 Units) at an exercise price of $0.20 per Unit.
