St. Genevieve Resources Ltd. Announces Completion of Acquisition by Ascendant Copper Corporation

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 27, 2008) - St. Genevieve Resources Ltd. (CNQ:SGVL) today announced that Ascendant Copper Corporation (TSX:ACX) has completed the acquisition of all of St. Genevieve's issued and outstanding shares. As a result, St. Genevieve is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ascendant. The acquisition was effected by way of Plan of Arrangement, pursuant to a final order of the Quebec Superior Court granted on March 20, 2008.

In connection with the acquisition, St. Genevieve shareholders will receive one Ascendant share for each 6.5394054 St. Genevieve shares.
