TORONTO, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - Sprott 2011 Corporation is pleased to announce that Sprott 2011 Flow-Through Limited Partnership (the "Partnership") has completed the first closing of its initial public offering of limited partnership units. The Partnership sold 2,853,887 units for gross proceeds of $71,347,175. The Partnership will have a second closing on or about March 10, 2011. The price per unit is $25.00 and the offering will be capped at $125 million.

Investment Objective of the Partnership

The Partnership's investment objective is to provide for a tax-assisted investment in a diversified portfolio of flow-through shares of resource issuers with a view to achieving capital appreciation and significant tax benefits for limited partners.

Attractive Tax-reduction Benefits

Flow-through partnerships are one of the most effective tax reduction strategies that remain available to Canadians. Sprott Asset Management LP ("Sprott"), the manager of the Partnership, anticipates that investors purchasing Units of the Partnership will be eligible to receive a tax deduction in 2011 that is approximately 100% of the amount invested in the Partnership, based on certain assumptions set forth in the prospectus.

Resource Expertise

The Partnership will be managed by Sprott, an independent asset management company that is dedicated to achieving superior returns for its clients over the long term. Portfolio managers Allan Jacobs and Eric Nuttall will co-manage the Partnership and will be supported by Eric Sprott, Charles Oliver and Rick Rule. As at December 31, 2010, Sprott had $8.5 billion in assets under management in various mutual funds and hedge funds, including approximately $8.2 billion dedicated to investments in natural resources. In 2010 alone, Sprott has invested, on behalf of its funds on a private placement basis, in approximately 244 resource issues, investing a total of approximately $408 million. The Manager also manages the Sprott 2010 Flow-Through Limited Partnership which has approximately $57 million in assets.
