VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 13, 2008) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OR UNITED STATES WIRE SERVICES

Faircourt CSCRF 2008 No. 1 Limited Partnership (the "Partnership") is pleased to announce that the first closing of its offering of limited partnership units ("Units") took place on March 11, 2008 with the sale of 415,854 Units at a price of $10.00 per Unit, raising gross proceeds of $4,158,540. The Partnership, which is jointly sponsored by NovaDX and by Faircourt Asset Management, may hold additional closings of sales of Units up to May 15, 2008.

The Faircourt CSCRF 2008 Unit offering is being made on a commercially reasonable efforts agency basis by a syndicate co-led by Blackmont Capital Inc. and CIBC World Markets Inc. and including TD Securities Inc., BMO Capital Markets, Scotia Capital Inc., Berkshire Securities Inc., Canaccord Adams, Raymond James Ltd., GMP Securities L.P., IPC Securities Corporation, Jory Capital Inc., and Wellington West Capital Inc. Units are available for sale in all provinces in Canada except Quebec.

The offering is for a maximum of $25,000,000 and a minimum of $3,000,000. The Units are priced at $10.00 per Unit, with a minimum subscription of 250 Units ($2,500).

The Partnership's objective is to provide its Limited Partners with a tax assisted investment in a diversified portfolio of flow-through shares of resource issuers with a view to maximizing the tax benefit of an investment in the units and achieving capital appreciation for the Limited Partners. It is expected that substantially all of the investment in the Units will be fully tax deductible in 2008. An additional 15% Federal investment tax credit may also be available to investors on certain qualified Canadian Exploration Expenses.

Investments will be made with the intent to create a diversified portfolio of primarily mineral and, to a lesser extent, oil and gas exploration companies as well as "alternative energy" issuers. The Partnership's investment strategy is to invest in flow-through shares of resource issuers that it considers to represent good value, have experienced and capable senior management, have a strong exploration program in place and offer potential for future growth. Bolder Investment Partners, Ltd. has been retained as the Portfolio Advisor.
