Duncastle Commences Drilling at Porphyry Creek

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2010) - Duncastle Gold Corp. (TSX VENTUER:DUN)(FRANKFURT:5D3) reported today that it has commenced drilling on its Porphyry Creek project located 20 kilometers northwest of Smithers, in northwest British Columbia.

Three holes totaling 1,200 metres are planned in Duncastle's first drill program on the property. The holes target ground geochemical sampling and coincident geophysical anomalies located in the area of the historic Sultana prospect. One hole targets anomalous copper and molybdenum geochemical results reported September 14, 2010 while a second cuts underneath the historic drill holes and trenches and also under the anomalous copper and molybdenum in intrusive rock identified in historic results.

Reconnaissance geology work is also planned, with a particular focus on investigating and developing a "pipeline" of new targets identified in the recent airborne geophysical results.

The Porphyry Creek project covers over 130 sq km of mineral claims with historic workings and numerous high-grade gold, silver and polymetallic showings around a distinct 10 kilometer long magnetic high with coincident copper, lead and zinc geochemical anomalies shown in government and Duncastle data. Data compilation and modeling by Duncastle has demonstrated mineral zonation on the property consistent with porphyry style deposits. There are over 20 porphyry discoveries in the region, including Berg, Bell, Huckleberry, Mt Milligan, and Galore Creek among others, plus other deposit types (eg Eskay Creek).

Duncastle Gold Corp. is a Vancouver based gold exploration company with mineral claims covering or surrounding past producing mines in two historic BC districts. Duncastle also holds the Yankee-Dundee mine in Southeast BC with a focus on high-grade gold-silver-lead-zinc veins just 50 km from the smelter at Trail, BC. Duncastle has assembled contiguous claim blocks totaling more than 190 sq km in two productive regions.

As part of the Manex Resource Group, Duncastle benefits from shared expertise in corporate finance, public company administration, investor relations, and the technical and geological services provided for the eight public companies active in North America. Since its formation in 1997, the Manex Group companies have raised over C$250 million in exploration financing.
