Investor Info

Sparton Resources Inc. is a diversified mineral exploration and energy company with advanced stage projects that will become attractive acquisition targets for senior mineral producers.

Sparton's management and technical team consists of seasoned mineral industry professionals who are strongly committed to the creation of real wealth through mineral resource development. They have a long and successful track record in exploration and development of various high unit value mineral deposits.

The Company's directors and officers have been directly associated with the discovery and development of more than a dozen successful precious and base metal producers.

Sparton's strategy is to increase shareholder value by bringing projects to feasibility and marketable value, or commercial production. Corporate structure with subsidiary companies can easily allow spin outs of high value projects into new vehicles to create additional shareholder value.
