  *Close spaced diamond drilling program shows good continuity of
    mineralization and excellent correlation between the new drilling and the
    existing resource model.
  *The program provides the Joint Venture team the necessary information to
    define the drill spacing required to upgrade Indicated to Measured
    Resource within the resource base.
  *AMEC is currently working on a revised Technical Report updating the
    current September 15, 2012 resource estimate.
  *The holes show excellent consistency within the Maturi Deposit.

TORONTO, Dec. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Duluth Metals Limited ("Duluth Metals")
(TSX: DM) (TSX: DM.U) is pleased to announce that Twin Metals Minnesota LLC
("Twin Metals") has completed 35 closely spaced diamond drill holes within the
Maturi Deposit. This drilling was designed to provide the Joint Venture team
the necessary information to define the drill spacing required to upgrade
Indicated to Measured Resource within the resource base. The program completed
two crossing perpendicular fence lines, each 1000 feet in length with holes
spaced 50 feet apart within the basal mineralized zones (Figs. 1-3). The
program utilized four (4) existing holes in addition to the 35 new holes.
Preliminary examination of drilling and assay results shows an excellent
correlation between the new drilling and the existing resource model.

"It is  seldom, if  ever, that  you can  expect to  match new  drilling to  an 
existing geological  model with  this  kind of  precision," said  Vern  Baker, 
President of Duluth  Metals Limited.  "The way  this drilling  matches to  the 
existing model  shows once  again  how this  resource  has a  consistency  and 
continuity beyond most metallic resources."

Figure 1 is a map  showing the fence drill holes  locations. Figure 2 shows  a 
cross section along the SW to NE drill hole fence, and Figure 3 shows a  cross 
section along the NW to SE drill hole fence.

A more detailed summary of the assay results for MEX-0442 to MEX-0467 and
MEX-0469 to MEX-0477 can be found in the table below. True width is estimated
at 80-100% of core length.

Twin Metals' resource estimation consultant, AMEC E&C Services Inc. (AMEC), is
working on  a revised  resource estimate  that will  incorporate all  drilling 
completed since September 2012. In addition to results from the fence drilling
program and  revised  resource  definitions,  the  estimate  will  incorporate 
results of an ongoing drill program designed to upgrade targeted areas of  the 
Maturi resource base from Inferred  to Indicated Resource classification.  The 
updated resource estimate  and revised  Technical Report are  expected in  the 
spring of 2014.

The Twin Metals  Minnesota Project  covers over 32,000  acres of  land/mineral 
interests and consolidates the largest  base and precious metal land  position 
in Minnesota.  This extensive  land  position provides  Twin Metals  with  the 
platform to  plan and  develop one  of the  world's largest  copper-nickel-PGM 
deposits within a new emerging mining belt in Minnesota, USA.

For the  2013 Drill  Program, half  core  samples are  being 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 33 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 four acid  (near 
total) digestion followed by ICP-MS. The remaining half core samples are being
stored in Minnesota.

Drill collar information for MEX-0442 to MEX-0467 and MEX-0469 to MEX-0477 is
shown in the table below:

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.
