Duncan Park Holdings Corporation Receives Notice that Stock Exchange Listing May Be Transferred to NEX Board of TSX Venture Exchange

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 17, 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 it intends to transfer Duncan Park's stock exchange listing to the NEX board of the TSXV unless Duncan Park submits satisfactory evidence to the TSXV by July 14, 2009 that the Company meets the TSXV's Tier 2 Tier Maintenance Requirements.

The notice from the TSXV follows Duncan Park's recent announcement of its US-based subsidiary's intention to give notice of termination on its two leased properties in northern Nevada known as the "Elephant Project" and the "Rock Creek/South Silver Cloud" project. That notice of termination has now been given.

As previously announced, the Company's Board of Directors intends to explore possible opportunities aimed at creating new shareholder value for the Duncan Park shareholders. 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.
