Duncastle Gold Signs Agreement for Black Lake Gold Project in Northwest Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/21/12 -- Duncastle Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:DUN)(FRANKFURT:5D3) ("Duncastle") has signed a letter of understanding with Fortune Tiger Resources Ltd. ("Fortune Tiger") to option up to 80% of the Black Lake gold property in Ontario for payments in cash and shares, and exploration work commitments. The letter of understanding is subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance on behalf of Duncastle.

The Black Lake property is located approximately 20km east of the town of Sioux Lookout in northwest Ontario, and about 10km northeast of, and along strike from, Duncastle's recently acquired Drayton property (see Duncastle news release Oct. 16, 2012).

Similar to the nearby Drayton project, two styles of gold mineralization occur on the property: high-grade targets in quartz vein stockwork in structural deformation zones similar to that of the Red Lake Mine located 200km northwest, and bulk tonnage targets in quartz-feldspar porphyries. Multiple occurrences of both types of mineralization are identified on the property, with the Moretti Shear Zone, a 400 meter long mineralized shear zone, being the most compelling with gold values as high as 1,212 g/t gold in a grab sample and 155g/t gold over 0.6 meters in channel samples (historical results reported by Cameco in 1998, data not independently verified by Duncastle).

To earn an initial 60% interest in the Black Lake property, Duncastle must:


--  Issue 200,000 shares upon TSX Venture Exchange acceptance; 
--  Pay $20,000 on or before January 28, 2013; 
--  Pay $25,000, issue 200,000 shares, and complete $150,000 in exploration
    expenditures on or before October 28, 2013; 
--  Pay $30,000, issue 200,000 shares, and complete an additional $250,000
    in exploration expenditures on or before October 28, 2014; 
--  Pay $50,000, issue 200,000 shares, and complete an additional $250,000
    in exploration expenditures on or before October 28, 2015; and 
--  Issue 200,000 shares, and complete an additional $350,000 in exploration
    expenditures on or before October 28, 2016. 

Duncastle may earn a further 20% interest (for an aggregate 80% interest) by issuing a further 400,000 shares and completing an additional $700,000 in exploration work on or before the sixth anniversary of regulatory approval.

Upon earning the 60% or 80% interest in the property, Duncastle and Fortune Tiger will work as partners with the interest of the lesser contributing partner being diluted down accordingly. An interest of less than 10% will convert to a 1.5% NSR, with a buy-down option to 1% for a payment of $500,000. Duncastle and Fortune Tiger acknowledge an existing 2% NSR with a buy-down to 1% for payment of $1,000,000 per an underlying agreement.

President Michael Rowley, commented, "The Black Lake project makes an excellent addition to our portfolio of high quality gold projects in the Wabigoon Greenstone belt of northwest Ontario, an area that remains underexplored but is growing rapidly as a region with the development of the Rainy River and Hammond Reef deposits, among other discoveries. The Black Lake project has seen little advanced exploration work in recent decades and is only 10km from our Drayton project and about 100km north of our Pipestone project."
