Shell Script Modification, add file metadata

Hi Guys,

I have this script :
find /files/contentstore -mtime +180 > oldfilelist.txt

That script : list all files which have age more than 180 days to oldfilelist.txt.

The "oldfilelist.txt" will contain the full path of the files. For example the contain will be like this :
/var/tmp/calculate1.jpg
/var/tmp/image1.jpg
/root/usr/ben/document1.jpg
/root/view11.jpg

I need some modification to the above script, so each row in "oldfilelist.txt" will  contain :
# file name
# full path
# and modified date

With each metadata separated by tab character. So the "oldfilelist.txt" will contain like this :
calculate1.jpg         /var/tmp/calculate1.jpg         1998-01-31
image1.jpg         /var/tmp/image1.jpg         1978-12-02
document1.jpg         /root/usr/ben/document1.jpg         2010-02-28
view11.jpg         /root/view11.jpg         2009-05-18


Please help. Thanks.
