Duncastle Initiates Airborne Survey at Drayton Gold Project in Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 17, 2013) - Duncastle Gold Corp. ("Duncastle") (TSX VENTURE:DUN)(FRANKFURT:5D3) reported today that it has signed a contract with Fugro Airborne Surveys to complete a 233 line-km helicopter-borne geophysical survey on its recently acquired Drayton gold project, located 10 kilometers south of Sioux Lookout and 70 kilometers east of Dryden in northwest Ontario.

The Drayton project lies on an emerging high-grade gold trend and is on strike with Tamaka Gold Corp's Goldlund project and Treasury Metal Inc's Goliath project to the southwest and Duncastle's recently optioned Black Lake project to the northeast. The property has not been previously explored with modern geophysics.

A combined electromagnetic (DIGEM EM) and magnetometer survey with 75 meter line spacing and 600 meter tie lines has been selected for the 15.8 square kilometer project in order to define potentially gold-bearing structures associated with sulphide mineralization and siliceous bodies. Deliverables include maps of both the electromagnetic and magnetic data, identified anomalies, and calculated vertical gradients, which will be used to identify targets below extensive shallow ground cover for drill testing later in 2013.
