TORONTO, May 24, 2011 -

Duluth Metals Limited ("Duluth") (TSX: DM) (TSX: DM.U) announced today
that the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") has approved Duluth's Notice of
Intention to Make a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "NCIB") to purchase for
cancellation, from time to time, its common shares (the "Shares") through the
facilities of the TSX and other available trading platforms. Duluth has TSX
approval to purchase for cancellation up to a maximum of 5% of Duluth's
issued and outstanding Shares. As of May 19, 2011, the total number of issued
and outstanding Shares was 125,336,068 Shares. The price which Duluth will
pay for any Shares purchased by it will be the prevailing market price of the
Shares on the TSX or such other exchange or marketplace, as applicable, at
the time of such purchase.

The NCIB will commence on May 25, 2011 and will terminate on May 24, 2012
or such earlier time as the NCIB is completed or terminated at the option of

Management of Duluth believes that, from time to time, the market price
of the Shares may not fully reflect the underlying value of the Shares and
that at such times the purchase of Shares represents attractive investment
value and would be in the best interests of Duluth. Such purchases will
increase the proportionate interest of, and may be advantageous to, all
remaining shareholders.

The actual number of Shares that may be purchased and the timing of any
such purchases will be determined by Duluth, subject to a maximum daily
purchase limitation of 59,271 Shares which equals 25% of the average daily
trading volume of 237,084 Shares calculated in accordance with the TSX rules,
except where purchases are made in accordance with "block purchase"
exemptions under applicable TSX rules.
