objectives. The original funding for CSCRF 2005 LP raised a gross amount of
$4,765,880 through the sale of partnership units priced at $10 per unit. The
General Partner estimates(1) that, net of capital gains taxes and income tax
savings, the resulting purchase cost is approximately $4.65 per unit and the
after-tax return to investors is in the order of 104%.
The CSCRF 2005 LP was the second of the Canadian Small Cap Resource
Funds, all of which invest in Flow-Through Shares of Canadian exploration
companies with a view to preservation of capital and capital appreciation of
the partnership's investments. Since 2004 the CSCRF group has raised more than
$22 million in flow-through funds. The structure of the Canadian Small Cap
Resource Funds offers investors the added benefit of deductions from income
and non-refundable tax credits.

Notes: (1) Estimates computed based on a number of assumptions including
but not limited to the following:
a) The Limited Partner's adjusted cost base of a unit is
equal to nil. Therefore, the disposition by a Limited
Partner of Units held by the Limited Partner as capital
property will result in a capital gain.
b) 50% of capital gains are taxable in computing a Limited
Partner's income. Actual tax savings/cost will vary from
the estimates set forth above depending on each Limited
Partner's actual marginal tax rate. An assumed marginal
tax rate of 46% has been used in calculating the
applicable taxes payable as a result of the disposition.
