About Duluth Metals Limited

Duluth Metals Limited is committed to acquiring, exploring and
developing copper, nickel and platinum group metal (PGM) deposits.
Duluth Metals has a joint venture with Antofagasta plc on the Twin
Metals Project, located within the rapidly emerging Duluth Complex
mining camp in north-eastern Minnesota. The Duluth Complex hosts one of
the world’s largest undeveloped repositories of copper, nickel and
PGMs, including the world’s third largest accumulation of nickel
sulphides, and one of the world’s largest accumulations of polymetallic
copper and platinum group metals. Aside from the Twin Metals Minnesota
joint venture, Duluth Metals retains a 100% position on approximately
40,000 acres of mineral interests on exploration properties adjacent to
and nearby the Twin Metals Minnesota LLC joint venture.

This press release contains forward-looking statements (including
“forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian
securities legislation and “forward-looking statements” within the
meaning of the US Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995)
relating to, among other things, the results of drilling operations of
Duluth Metals and exploration and mine development. Generally,
forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such
as “plans”, “expects” or “does not expect”, “is expected”, “budget”,
“scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates” or
“does not anticipate”, or “believes”, or variations of such words and
phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”,
“could”, “would”, “might” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved”.
Duluth Metals has relied on a number of assumptions and estimates in
making such forward-looking statements, including, without limitation,
the prices of copper, nickel and platinum group metals (PGMs) and the
costs associated with continuing exploration and mining development.
Such assumptions and estimates are made in light of the trends and
conditions that are considered to be relevant and reasonable based on
information available and the circumstances existing at this time. A
number of risk factors may cause actual results, level of activity,
performance or outcomes of such exploration and/or mine development to
be materially different from those expressed or implied by such
forward-looking statements including, without limitation, whether such
discoveries will result in commercially viable quantities of such
mineralized materials, the possibility of changes to project parameters
as plans continue to be refined, the ability to execute planned
exploration and future drilling programs, possible variations of
copper, nickel and PGM grade or recovery rates, the need for additional
funding to continue exploration efforts, changes in general economic,
market and business conditions, and those other risks set forth in
Duluth Metals’ most recent annual information form under the heading
“Risk Factors” and in its other public filings. Statements related to
“reserves” and “resources” are deemed forward-looking statements as
they involve the implied assessment, based on realistically assumed and
justifiable technical and economic conditions, that an inventory of
mineralization will become economically extractable. Forward-looking
statements are not guarantees of future performance and such
information is inherently subject to known and unknown risks,
uncertainties and other factors that are difficult to predict and may
be beyond the control of Duluth Metals. Although Duluth Metals has
attempted to identify important risks and factors that could cause
actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those
described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors and
risks that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated,
estimated or intended. Consequently, undue reliance should not be
placed on such forward-looking statements. In addition, all
forward-looking statements in this press release are given as of the
date hereof. Duluth Metals disclaims any intention or obligation to
update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of
new information, future events or otherwise, save and except as may be
required by applicable securities laws. The forward-looking statements
contained herein are expressly qualified by this disclaimer.

Cautionary Note to United States Investors Concerning Estimates of
Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resources

This press release uses the terms “Indicated Mineral Resources” and
“Inferred Mineral Resources” in accordance with the Canadian Institute
of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) Definition Standards. While
such terms are recognized under Canadian securities legislation, the
United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize
these terms. The term “Inferred Mineral Resource” refers to a mineral
resource for which quantity and grade or quality can be estimated on
the basis of geological evidence and limited sampling and reasonably
assumed, but not verified, geological and grade continuity. These
estimates are based on limited information and it cannot be assumed
that all or any part of an “Inferred Mineral Resource” will be upgraded
to a higher classification resource, such as “Indicated” or “Measured”,
as a result of continued exploration. Accordingly, an estimate relating
to an “Inferred Mineral Resource” is insufficient to allow meaningful
application of technical and economic parameters or to enable an
evaluation of economic viability. Under Canadian securities
legislation, estimates of an “Inferred Mineral Resource” may not form
the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. Investors are
cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an “Inferred Mineral
Resource” is economically or legally mineable. Investors are also
cautioned not to assume that all or any part of “Indicated” will ever
be converted into “Mineral Reserves” (being the economically mineable
part of an “Indicated” or “Measured Mineral Resource”).
