    Trading Symbol: MCV

    TORONTO, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - McVicar Resources Inc. ("McVicar") announces
that the company and its financing syndicate have agreed to stop proceeding
with the private placement offering of units that was announced on January 9,
2008. The decision to forego the financing was due to the current unfavorable
capital market conditions.
    "McVicar is proceeding with its current business development activities
with funding from internal resources" said Dr. Gang Chai, President and CEO of
the company. "McVicar does not require significant financing in the short term
to carry out its current operations. It is therefore unnecessary to proceed
with a financing in the context of these unfavorable market conditions."
