Sparton Resources and Osisko Mining Start Drilling at Hammond Gold Properties

Sparton Resources has commenced a 3,300 m drilling at its Hammond gold area properties in Ontario, joint-ventured currently with Osisko Mining. The claims of Sparton includes the Hammond gold project.

Osisko has clarified that the beginning of the diamond drilling will be at end of 2011 November and will target the West Hammond claim region. The company has prepared the drill locations and access roads and has mobilized the drilling equipment to the region. It has planned to drill around 3,300 m, first six to eight holes. The drilling has been planned to follow-up the former discoveries by the company at the West Hammond claim block’s southern end, where Sparton previously encountered many broad, near-surface gold intersections.

In these drill holes, mineralization is present in a 50-200 m broad zone of highly mineralized, silicified, and sheared granitic rocks with different amounts of intermediate volcanic material and altered intercalated mafic.

Osisko has conducted a detailed surface exploration campaign. It prospected around 2,700 outcrops and took more than 1,400 whole rock samples from the Clement Lake and West Hammond Claims. A new grid lines of 125 km were intersected at the West Hammond claims in order to permit the sampling and prospecting.

A soil sampling of 27.5 line-km was performed for enclosing the fresh existence identified at the West Hammond Claims’ northern end, where the grab samples yielded gold ranging from 0.105 to 6.86 g/t. The company completed ground magnetic survey and an induced polarization survey in the south of the similar claim block. This work generated targets, which may be considered for drilling.
