Tricap Announces Launch of Hammerstone Corporation and Appointment of its President

CALGARY, ALBERTA, April 3, 2009 — Tricap Partners II LP (“Tricap”), part of the Brookfield Asset Management Inc. group of companies, is pleased to announce that its newly established subsidiary, Hammerstone Corporation (“Hammerstone” or the “Company”), has successfully purchased the assets of Birch Mountain Resources Ltd. from PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. as Interim Receiver.

Hammerstone’s assets include approximately 1 billion tonnes of limestone reserves within the Athabasca oil sands of Alberta to the north of Fort McMurray.  These reserves are located in the existing Muskeg Valley Quarry and related “Hammerstone Project” which collectively encompass over 50 years of production life within its 3,600 acres. The Hammerstone Project, which is subject to regulatory approval, contemplates expanded quarry operations together with lime and cement plants. The Company also acquired permits and leases for limestone and other minerals covering over 700,000 additional acres in the surrounding region.

Tricap is also pleased to announce that Terry Owen has been appointed President of Hammerstone. Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Owen was the President of Trimac Transportation Services Inc., the leading provider of bulk trucking and logistics services in North America.

In commenting on the completion of the purchase Mr. Owen said: “I am very pleased to be associated with Hammerstone and Brookfield Asset Management. Brookfield has a long and successful history in the mining industry and we are excited about the opportunity to work together with Tricap in launching a new, well-capitalized company and establishing ourselves as a leading supplier of high quality crushed limestone products in Western Canada. The vast limestone reserves acquired by Hammerstone are in the heart of the oil sands area of Alberta where the long-term prospects for growth remain very positive”.

Mr. Owen also added: “Our new management team and dedicated group of employees in place at our quarry look forward to working with the First Nations communities and providing our ‘Limestone Advantage’ products to our customers.”

BHMNF Share Structure / Comments:
Common Shares outstanding as of June 30, 2008, as reported in the Issuer’s Unaudited Interim Consolidated Financial Statements for June 30, 2008, as filed with the SEC by the Issuer on August 18, 2008, as Exhibit No. 99.2 to its Form 6-K 84,355,737 Common Shares

"Effective December 3, 2008, Tricap purchased, by way of a private agreement, a portion of the Issuer’s unsecured subordinated convertible debentures in the principal amount of 29,280,000 Canadian dollars (“C$”) (the “Unsecured Subordinated Convertible Debentures”) for nominal cash consideration and other non-cash consideration.

Tricap may be deemed to be the sole beneficial owner of 8,872,727 Common Shares that would be issuable upon conversion of the Issuer’s Unsecured Subordinated Convertible Debentures, which represents approximately 9.5% of the Common Shares outstanding.

As previously reported, on December 21, 2007, Tricap purchased the Issuer’s secured senior convertible debentures due June 30, 2012 (the “Secured Senior Convertible Debentures”) in the principal amount of C$31,500,000 from the Issuer. The aggregate purchase price was C$31,500,000 in cash, and the source of Tricap’s funds was from a capital call on the investors of the fund managed by Tricap. On August 1, 2008, Tricap and the Issuer entered into an Amending Agreement amending, among other things, the aggregate principal amount of the Secured Senior Convertible Debentures to $34,500,000. The Secured Senior Convertible Debentures are convertible into Common Shares at the lower of $0.40 per Common Share and the current market price of the Issuer’s Common Shares at the time of conversion. The Issuer’s current market price is below C$0.01 per Common Share and thus, for the purposes of this filing, it has been assumed that the conversion price of the Secured Senior Convertible Debentures is C$0.01 per Common Share.

As a result of both investments, Tricap may be deemed to be the sole beneficial owner of 3,458,872,727 Common Shares that would be issuable upon conversion of both the Unsecured Subordinated Convertible Debentures and the Secured Senior Convertible Debentures, which represents 97.6% of the Common Shares outstanding.
