Duncastle Signs Agreements With First Nations at Porphyry Creek, Adds Claim

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2011) - Duncastle Gold Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:DUN)(FRANKFURT:5D3) reported today that it has signed agreements with two First Nations for 2011 exploration work on its Porphyry Creek project located 30 kilometers northwest of Smithers in northwest British Columbia.

The agreements provide employment, training and business opportunities to First Nations and First Nations businesses in the project areas while granting Duncastle access for reconnaissance geology and drilling programs in 2011. The agreements are a continuation of the positive relationship Duncastle has built with local communities starting with early consultation before work commenced in 2008.

Duncastle now has agreements in place with First Nations for all 2011 exploration target areas on the property.

Duncastle also reported today that it added a claim totaling about 463 hectares to the Porphyry Creek project in order to properly stake the MT showing which appears to have been incorrectly mapped in the public database. Recent compilation and analysis of past work has identified the MT showing as occurring two kilometers south of its mapped location, or about four kilometers south of Duncastle's recent copper-molybdenum porphyry discovery at the Sultana mine on the Porphyry Creek project.

Select historic high-grade rock chip samples from the MT showing include 5,187g/t Ag and 2.34% Cu in one sample, 23.0g/t Au, 1,817g/t Ag and 1.09% Cu in a second, and 5.1g/t Au, 2,846g/t Ag and 3.65% Cu in a third(1). Geologic mapping by Amax Exploration in 1967 identified an intrusive body with an accompanying 1,000 x 300 meter zone with strong alteration and pyritic mineralization. Concurrent geochemical sampling returned some anomalous copper and molybdenum values, but outcrops were extensively leached, making the mineral potential impossible to evaluate on surface. The zone corresponds well with the southern extension of a strong conductivity (EM) response seen in Duncastle's 2010 airborne geophysical survey. Further investigation of this significant geologic anomaly will be conducted during Duncastle's work program commencing in May 2011.
