TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/12 -- Duncan Park Holdings Corporation (TSX VENTURE: DPH)(OTCQX: DCNPF) announced today that it intends to undertake a non-brokered private placement of up to $500,000 of flow-through common shares at a price of $0.08 per share.
Proceeds from the proposed best efforts private placement will be used to finance exploration on the Company's Red Lake properties. The first two holes of the winter drilling program on the Dome property have been completed and the drilling rig has moved to the third hole, which is on the McManus property. The cost of the first two holes will result in the Company having completed the spending requirements of the Dome option agreement. The completion of the third hole and, weather permitting, fourth hole is expected to complete the exploration spending requirements of the McManus option agreement.
Completion of the financing remains subject to, among other things, receipt of all requisite regulatory and other approvals.
The Company may pay a 5% cash fee and issue 5% finders warrants to eligible finders with respect to certain subscriptions. The finders warrants would be exercisable for non-flow-through common shares for a 12-month period.
