TORONTO, August 18, 2011 -

Duluth Metals Limited (”Duluth Metals” or the “Company”) (TSX: DM) previously announced that it proposes to distribute to its shareholders of record as of August 23, 2011 (”Shareholders of Record”) a dividend consisting of special warrants (”Special Warrants”) automatically convertible to common shares of Duluth Exploration Limited (”DEL”), a new spin-off entity which is a wholly owned Canadian subsidiary of the Company.  The Company proposes to dividend these Special Warrants to Shareholders of Record on the basis of one Special Warrant for every 15 common shares of Duluth Metals as a means of creating shareholder value and to allow its shareholders to participate in DEL, which will pursue exploration and development activity on certain mineral exploration properties in the State of Minnesota currently held by DMC (USA) LLC, an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Duluth Metals.

The Company wishes to draw to the attention of the public that the common shares of Duluth Metals will commence trading on an ex-distribution basis at the opening of business on Friday, August 19, 2011.  Accordingly, today will be the last trading day to acquire shares of Duluth Metals on the Toronto Stock Exchange in order to become a Shareholder of Record and to qualify for the dividend of Special Warrants.
