announces that it is conducting a rights offering to its shareholders in a
maximum amount of approximately $1.7 million. Each Murgor shareholder of
record at the close of business on February 8, 2008 will receive one right for
each common share held. Every eight rights will entitle the holder to acquire

March 3, 2008. Each unit will be comprised of one common share of Murgor and
one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to
acquire one additional common share of Murgor at a price of $1.00 until
March 3, 2009. In the event that the closing price of Murgor's shares on the
TSX Venture Exchange is $1.20 or more for a period of 20 consecutive trading
days, Murgor will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the warrants
to a date that is at least 30 days after the date of a notice to that effect
from Murgor to the holders of warrants.
