TORONTO, August 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

  *Significant drill intersections on Duluth Metals 100% owned Rook Property.
  *The Rook Property discovery hole is located southeast of Teck's large
    Mesaba Deposit in the Duluth Complex in Minnesota.
  *Three separate zones of copper, nickel and Platinum Group mineralization
    have been confirmed in Hole 13-RK-02.

Duluth Metals Limited ("Duluth Metals") (TSX: DM) (TSX: DM.U) is pleased to
announce results for Hole 13-RK-02, drilled on the 100% owned Rook Property,
situated in the western sector of the Company's 100% owned 40,000 acre
exploration package.This hole has intersected three significant mineralized
sections returning the following highlights:

  *Zone 1 - A 5.9 foot intersection of 0.88% copper, 0.18% nickel, 2.3 g/t
    silver and 8.16 g/t TPM (TPM = Platinum+Palladium+Gold) at a 5.0 g/t TPM
    cut-off within a 12.7 foot intersection of 0.49% copper, 0.11% nickel, 1.4
    g/t silver and 4.69 g/t TPM at a 1.0 g/t TPM cut-off;
  *Zone 2 - A 79.6 foot intersection of 0.66% copper, 0.16% nickel, 2.3 g/t
    silver and 1.16 g/t TPM at a 0.5% Cu cut-off within a 128.1 foot
    intersection of 0.53% copper, 0.14% nickel, 0.04 g/t silver and 0.90 g/t
    TPM at a 0.3% Cu cut-off;
  *Zone 3 - A 95.0 foot intersection of 0.95% copper, 0.26% nickel, 2.9 g/t
    silver and 0.94 g/t TPM at a 0.5% Cu cut-off within a 188.4 foot
    intersection of 0.70 % copper, 0.18 % nickel, 2.5 g/t silver and 0.85 g/t
    TPM at a 0.3% Cu cut-off.

The Rook Property is situated on the south-eastern boundary of the Teck
Resources Limited ("Teck") Mesaba copper-nickel project in the Duluth Complex,
northeastern Minnesota and is approximately three miles southwest of the Twin
Metals Minnesota Project currently under pre-feasibility study by Duluth and
its joint venture partner Antofagasta plc. Drilling on the Rook Property is
part of the long term exploration program being conducted on Duluth Metals'
large prospective exploration package situated in the Duluth Complex.

Hole 13-RK-02 was drilled to test for the down-dip extension of mineralization
at the base of the Partridge River intrusion (PRI), host to Teck's Mesaba
deposit. The closest previous deep drilling to this hole is approximately a
half mile to the north and west. In addition to intersecting the basal
mineralization, Hole 13-RK-02 also identified high grade PGM and Cu-Ni-PGE
mineralization significantly above the basal contact of the PRI.

"This spring our geologic team identified an opportunity to explore for
Cu-Ni-Pt-Pd-Au mineralization on our Rook property. The Rook property covers
an area where the South Kawishiwi Intrusion and the Partridge River Intrusion
meet. These excellent drill results indicate there is significant potential
for the Mesaba deposit to extend down dip onto our property position," stated
Vern Baker, President of Duluth Metals. "We look forward to developing a
follow-up program that will include geophysical work and additional drilling."

The Company's 2013 Exploration Program is focused on selected areas within
their large prospective exploration package. During the 2013 summer season,
the exploration work is concentrating on compiling, integrating and
interpreting all drilling, geochemical, geophysical and geological data
acquired from their previous 2012-13 drilling and exploration program.In
addition, the Company has commenced a comprehensive field program comprised of
detailed geologic mapping, rock chip and glacial till geochemical sampling.
The Company has announced four other areas of new mineralization within the
Duluth Complex exploration holdings in addition to the latest discovery on the
Rook Property.

The Duluth Complex hosts some of the world's largest undeveloped resources of
copper, nickel and PGMs. In comparison to worldwide deposits, the Duluth
Complex is estimated to have the world's third largest accumulation of nickel
sulphides and the world's second largest accumulation of polymetallic copper
and platinum group metals.The Duluth Complex hosts a number of known
copper-nickel-platinum-palladium-gold deposits.Figure 1 above illustrates the
property and drill hole locations.

Full assay results for holes 13-RK-01 and 13-RK-02 are shown as follows in
Table 1 and Table 2.The true thickness is estimated at approximately 100% of
core length.The assay results in Tables 1 and 2 include averages of the
original plus extensive check assays.

For the 2013 Drill Program, half core samples are prepared at ALS Minerals
laboratories in Thunder Bay and then shipped to its analytical facilities in
Vancouver. Samples are being analyzed for Au, Pt, and Pd using a 30g standard
fire assay with an ICP-AES finish and for 48 other elements using a four acid
(near total) digestion and a combination of ICP-MS and ICP-AES. ICP
over-limits for copper and nickel are re-analyzed using dissolution four acid
(near total) digestion followed by ICP-MS. Quality control samples consisting
of certified reference material, blanks, and duplicate samples are submitted
to monitor the integrity of assay results. The remaining half core samples are
being stored in Minnesota.
