The Partnership's investment objective is to provide its limited partners with a tax assisted investment in a diversified portfolio of flow-through shares and other securities, if any, of resource companies with a view to (i) maximizing the tax benefit of an investment in the units of the Partnership, and (ii) achieving capital appreciation for its limited partners.

AlphaNorth General Partner Inc., the general partner of the Partnership, expects limited partners to receive tax deductions of approximately 99% of the gross proceeds of the offering for the 2010 taxation year and 110% of over the life of the Partnership (assuming the maximum offering).

The Partnership has retained AlphaNorth Asset Management (the "Manager") to provide investment, management, administrative and other services. The Manager currently provides management services to AlphaNorth Partners Fund Inc., a long biased, small cap hedge fund focusing primarily on Canadian companies, including resource companies. The Manager will provide investment advisory and portfolio management services to the Partnership and will direct the day-to-day business operations and affairs of the Partnership.

The offering is being made through a syndicate of agents co-led by Canaccord Financial Ltd. and RBC Dominion Securities Inc., and including GMP Securities L.P., Scotia Capital Inc., Dundee Securities Corporation, Raymond James Ltd., Macquarie Capital Markets Canada Ltd., Research Capital Corporation, Wellington West Capital Markets Inc. and Queensbury Securities Inc.
