The Partnership's investment objective is to provide a tax-assisted investment in a diversified portfolio of flow-through shares and other securities, if any, of resource companies with a view to earning income and achieving capital appreciation for limited partners.

The Partnership intends to provide liquidity to limited partners prior to July 1, 2012, when the Partnership intends to complete an exchange transaction ("Mutual Fund Rollover Transaction") with Dynamic Managed Portfolios Ltd. ("DMP Ltd."), pursuant to which limited partners will receive redeemable DMP Resource Class shares on a tax-deferred basis.
