Reno, Nevada, Jan. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dakota Territory Resource
Corp(OTCQB: DTRC) ("Dakota Territory" or the "Company") is pleased to announce
that it has completed sales from an offering of unregistered securities (the
"offering"). The terms of the offering provided for the raising of
$200,000.00 through the sale of 2,000,000 shares of the Company's restricted
common stock at $0.10 per share, subject to an over-allotment provision of up
to 25%. The financing was fully subscribed, including the over-allotment
option, resulting in gross proceeds to the Company in the amount of
$250,000.00 and the issuance of 2,500,000 restricted common shares.

Fourteen accredited investors participated in the offering, including four
former senior executives of Homestake Mining Company. The Company issued no
warrants, nor were any fees or commissions paid in connection with the

Proceeds from the offering will be used for general working capital purposes,
including ongoing preliminary exploration work conducted on the Company's
Blind Gold Property and preparatory work for additional exploration programs
planned for the summer of 2013.

As reported by the Company on Form 8-K and in a news release, both dated
January 7, 2013, Dakota Territory recently increased the Company's property
holdings through the acquisition of three groups of unpatented lode mining
claims covering approximately 853 acres in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
The Company's new properties are located in the heart of the prolific
Homestake district that has produced approximately 50 million ounces of gold
and are situated in close proximity to the Blind Gold Property. The Company's
exploration activities in 2013 will be focused on the Homestake formation that
lies under the Blind Gold Property and the search for a repeat of the
Homestake deposit under cover. Dakota Territory's secondary objective is to
simultaneously advance its prospective gold targets on the Homestake
Paleoplacer, City Creek and West False Bottom Creek/Paradise Gulch Properties
through the acquisition of new data that will build from the extensive
historic exploration work already performed on the properties.

About Dakota Territory Resource Corp

Dakota Territory Resource Corp. is a Nevada Corporation with offices located
at Reno, Nevada. Dakota Territory is committed to creating shareholder value
through the acquisition and responsible exploration and development of high
caliber gold properties in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

In terms of total historic US gold production, the Black Hills ranks second
only to the Carlin District of northeast Nevada, with the gold production of
the Black Hills concentrated in a 100 square mile area known as the Homestake
District. Dakota Territory maintains 100% ownership of four mineral
properties including the Blind Gold, West False Bottom/Paradise Gulch, City
Creek and Homestake Paleoplacer Properties, all of which are located in the
heart of the Homestake District and cover a total of approximately 2,466
acres. The Blind Gold Property is located approximately 3 miles northwest and
on structural trend with the historic Homestake Gold Mine. Through its 125
year production history, the Homestake Gold Mine produced approximately 40
million ounces of gold and is the largest iron-formation-hosted gold deposit
in the world.

In the 1980's and 1990's Homestake Mining Company undertook a $70 million
exploration program managed by Richard Bachman, President and CEO of Dakota
Territory Resource Corp that was focused primarily on the search for a repeat
of the Homestake Mine. This program successfully discovered significant new
gold mineralization beyond the confines of the producing mine, demonstrating
repeatability and the potential for additional gold deposits in the Homestake
iron-formation host. The program also proved the continuous extension of the
Homestake iron-formation to a distance of approximately 3 miles from the
producing mine and under the Blind Gold Property.

Dakota Territory Resource Corp. is uniquely positioned by the experience of
its management team to leverage the extensive exploration efforts of the past,
beginning at the point where the Homestake program ended in 1994. For more
