TORONTO, December 2, 2010 - Duluth Metals Limited ("Duluth Metals") (TSX: DM) (TSX:DM.U) today
announced that exploration work has commenced on the Company's 100% owned
(non-joint venture) exploration properties which consist of approximately
31,000 acres of mineral interests adjacent to and nearby the Twin Metals
Minnesota LLC (TMM) joint venture with Antofagasta plc and Duluth Metals. The
properties provide a pipeline of new exploration targets for potential future
growth outside of the joint venture while the development of the Nokomis
Project is being advanced by TMM.

"It makes sense for the Company to continue exploration in close
proximity to known deposits that we understand geologically, and as such,
Duluth Metals has assembled an exceptional pipeline of grassroots exploration
properties within an emerging mining camp," stated Christopher Dundas,
Chairman and CEO of Duluth Metals. "Duluth Metals is looking for continued
future growth and these properties have the potential for future discoveries
in our own backyard."

The Duluth Metals exploration team has expanded and will concentrate its
exploration on three styles of mineralization within the Duluth Complex,
including typical disseminated Cu-Ni-PGEs, magma conduit related Ni-rich
massive sulphides, and Pt-rich reef type targets. Duluth Metals recently
completed a 7,053 line kilometre airborne VTEM-Magnetic survey over a 649
square kilometre area within the Duluth Complex. Condor Consulting Inc.,
recognized experts in the field of airborne electromagnetics have been
retained to perform a detailed interpretation of the results and their final
report regarding the significance of the survey is pending. Dr. Dean
, senior V.P. Exploration, and a pre-eminent authority on Duluth
Complex mineralization, is working closely with geophysicists of Condor
Consulting Inc. Drilling is scheduled to start in early 2011 on selected
State and private exploration lands.

    The eight exploration properties are:

    - the Nor'East and East Shore Properties, which are in close proximity to
      the Nokomis Deposit where pending Federal prospecting permits if issued,
      may allow exploration on the magma conduit (Nickel Lake Macrodike)
      that formed all of the South Kawishiwi Intrusion copper-nickel-PGE
      mineralization including the Nokomis Deposit;
    - the Reefs and Land O'Dixie Properties which have potential for
      Platinum-rich Reef type targets; and,
    - the Rook, Cascade, Hoyt and Lands End Properties, which are in close
      proximity to other known copper-nickel-PGE deposits in the Duluth

A budget of $8 Million is being considered for the upcoming 2011
exploration program which will include geologic mapping, geochemical
sampling, geophysical interpretation and drilling. In addition to the
exploration lands, pre-feasibility stage work will continue on the Nokomis
Project through Twin Metals Minnesota LLC, a new joint venture company, which
is 60% owned by Duluth Metals and 40% by Antofagasta plc.
