    TORONTO, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - Mavrix Fund Management Inc. (TSX: MVX) today
reported Assets Under Management (AUM) and Sales for the month ending
September 30, 2008. Mostly due to the continued turmoil in the equity markets,
total AUM decreased by 16.1% in September 2008 to $395.8 million with a
year-to-date decrease of 37.8% and a 45.0% decrease compared to September 30,

On September 30, 2008, Mavrix announced the filing of the final prospectus of
the Mavrix Explore 2008-II FT Limited Partnership (the "LP"). The LP will

mining companies that engage in exploration activities in Canada. Sales of
Mavrix resource limited partnerships have raised gross proceeds of $47 million
year-to-date.
    "Despite the challenging market conditions that are impacting everyone,
we continue to see declining gross redemptions for our mutual funds and are
encouraged by investor interest in our current resource LP offering. We look
forward to future rewarding opportunities in the market." said David Balsdon,
CCO and Secretary-Treasurer.
