About the Partnership

The Partnership has been organized to invest in flow-through shares of resource companies whose principal business is oil & gas exploration and development, mineral exploration and development, and renewable energy development and production.

The Partnership will focus on Canadian Development Expense (CDE) expenditures over Canadian Exploration Expense (CEE) expenditures. This shifts the nature of the underlying activities from higher risk exploration activities to lower risk development drilling which focuses on already identified oil & gas pools or mineral deposits.
