TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 27, 2012) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Duncan Park Holdings Corporation (TSX VENTURE:DPH)(OTCQX:DCNPF) announced today that it intends to undertake a non-brokered private placement of up to $600,000 of flow-through and/or non-flow-through common shares at a price of $0.05 per share.
Net proceeds from the proposed best efforts private placement are expected to be used, depending upon the amount of capital raised, to make the final $125,000 property payment to Camp McMan Red Lake Gold Mines Ltd. required to complete the earn-in to the McManus patents, fund additional geological mapping and assaying samples, for current fiscal year working capital needs, and to provide up to approximately $300,000 in working capital at year-end, which the Company anticipates will better position it to raise additional flow-through financing to pursue the recommended exploration program on its properties, and which should help put the Company in a better financial position for the following fiscal year.
The Company may pay a 5% cash fee to eligible finders with respect to certain subscriptions. The Company plans to complete the private placement this summer through one or more closings.
Completion of the financing remains subject to, among other things, receipt of all requisite regulatory and other approvals, including that of the non-interested directors of the Company. Insiders of the Company are expected to subscribe for a portion of the private placement. A material change report in respect of the private placement will be filed on SEDAR in accordance with applicable securities law.
The Company is planning a fall drilling program to follow up on the success of the winter drilling program (see press release dated April 26, 2012), contingent upon the availability of flow-through funding.
