Duncan Park Holdings Corporation Announcement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 21, 2007) - It is with great sadness that the Board of Directors of Duncan Park Holdings Corporation (TSX VENTURE:DPH) announces the passing of Leonard James Taylor, President and Chief Executive Officer. It was through Mr. Taylor's foresight when the price of gold was under $275 that the Company identified and acquired its interests in the three exploration properties it continues to hold in Nevada, USA. Mr. Taylor worked tirelessly for the Company since he re-positioned it as an exploration and development company in 2001.

The Company extends its condolences to Mr. Taylor's wife, family and friends.

The Board of Directors also announces the appointment of Mr. Ian McAvity, a director of the Company, as acting Chief Executive Officer. Mr. McAvity has extensive knowledge and experience in gold markets and related matters.

The Company's exploration program contemplated in connection with the July 2007 financing is proceeding as previously planned.

The TSX Venture Exchange does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
