Duncan Park Holdings Corporation to Transfer to NEX Board of TSX Venture Exchange

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 18, 2009) - Duncan Park Holdings Corporation (TSX VENTURE:DPH) ("Duncan Park" or the "Company") announces that it has received notice from the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") that its stock exchange listing will be transferred from the TSXV to the NEX board of the TSXV, effective the opening of trading on August 19, 2009. The Company's common shares will trade under the symbol; "DPH.H".

The transfer to NEX is a result of Duncan Park's current inability to meet the TSXV's Tier 2 Tier Maintenance Requirements following the previously announced termination of the leases on its US subsidiary's two former properties in northern Nevada known as the "Elephant Project" and the "Rock Creek/South Silver Cloud" project.

NEX is a separate board of the TSXV for companies previously listed on TSXV or Toronto Stock Exchange which have failed to maintain compliance with the ongoing financial listing standards of those markets. NEX has been designed to provide a forum for the trading of publicly listed shell companies while they seek and undertake transactions in furtherance of their reactivation as companies which will carry on an active business.

The Company's Board of Directors intends to continue explore possible opportunities aimed at creating new shareholder value for Duncan Park shareholders. The Company had been close to finalizing Letters of Intent for two such possible transactions in the last 60 days, but both failed to come to fruition as their deadlines approached. At the present time, it is not possible to predict the timing of this process and there is no certainty that the process will be successful.
