Abstract: Let $ \Lambda $ be a discrete subset of a LCA group and E a compact subset of the dual group $ \Gamma $. Balayage is said to be possible for ($ \Lambda $, E) if the Fourier transform of each measure on G is equal on E to the Fourier transform of some measure supported by $ \Lambda $.

For a class of infinite compact metrizable $ \Gamma $, including all such torsion groups, we show how to construct $ E \subset \Gamma $ such that there are arbitrarily sparse sets $ \Lambda $ with balayage possible for ($ \Lambda $, E). E is, moreover, large enough that the set of products $ E \cdot E \cdot E = \Gamma $.
