Investment Objective of the Partnership
The Partnership's investment objective is to provide for a tax-assisted investment in a diversified portfolio of flow-through shares of resource issuers with a view to achieving capital appreciation and significant tax benefits for the Limited Partners.

Sprott anticipates that investors participating in the Partnership will be eligible to receive a tax deduction in 2012 that is 100% of the amount invested in the Partnership, based on certain assumptions as set forth in the prospectus.
The Partnership will be managed by Sprott, an independent asset management company that is dedicated to achieving superior returns for its clients over the long term.

As at September 30, 2011, Sprott had an estimated $9.1 billion in assets under management in various mutual funds and hedge funds, including approximately $8.0 billion dedicated to investments in natural resources. Sprott specializes in investing in small and mid-cap stocks and has a team of leading investment managers who think independently and act on their convictions.
