CMP 2005 Resource Limited Partnership Files Final
Prospectus

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 2, 2005) - CMP 2005 Resource
Limited Partnership (the "Partnership") announces that it has filed a
final prospectus relating to an initial public offering of limited
partnership units of the Partnership ("Units") in all the provinces and
territories of Canada. The maximum offering is $200 million (200,000
Units).

The Partnership's investment objective is to provide a tax-assisted
investment in a diversified portfolio of flow-through shares and other
securities of resource companies with a view to earning income and
achieving capital appreciation for the limited partners. The assets of
the Partnership will be invested primarily in flow-through shares so
that certain deductions from income and non-refundable investment tax
credits will be available to limited partners in 2005.

Prior to July 1, 2007, the Partnership intends to complete an exchange
transaction with Dynamic Managed Portfolios Ltd. ("DMP Ltd.") pursuant
to which limited partners will receive redeemable DMP Resource Fund
shares on a tax-deferred basis. DMP Ltd. will implement a multi-class
fund structure in 2005. It is anticipated that holders of DMP Resource
Fund shares will have the ability to switch into any other DMP class
fund on a tax-deferred basis once the multi-class fund structure is
implemented.

The Units are being offered at a price of $1,000 per Unit, subject to a
minimum subscription of five Units for $5,000, payable in two equal
instalments. The first instalment is payable on closing, currently
anticipated to be March 10, 2005, and the final instalment is payable on
or prior to May 31, 2005. Pending payment of the final instalment,
beneficial ownership in the Units will be represented by instalment
receipts.
