TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 24, 2011) - Duncan Park Holdings Corporation (TSX VENTURE:DPH) announced today that it has closed on the issuance of $1,050,000 of units ("Units") pursuant to its previously announced private placement at a price of $0.105 per Unit.

Each Unit was comprised of one "flow-through" common share and one-half of one non flow-through common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant shall be exercisable for one common share at a price of $0.15 per share for a period of 12 months.

The Company anticipates closing on the balance of the Units shortly, which would bring the total amount raised to $1,100,000.

Each Finder's Option is exercisable for one non flow-through unit (a "Finder's Unit") at a price of $0.105 per Finder's Unit for a period of 12 months. Each Finder's Unit shall be exercisable on the same terms as the Units, except that the common shares issuable thereunder shall be non flow-through shares.

With approximately $600,000 of the private placement taken by members of the MineralFields Group, Ian McAvity, Acting President and CEO of Duncan Park, said, "We are very pleased to be entering into this relationship with MineralFields Group. This is an important milestone in the growth of Duncan Park and we look forward to working with MineralFields Group as we develop our holdings in the Red Lake region."
