Duluth Metals announces drill results confirming large mineralized horizon over 3.5 sq. kms.



    TORONTO, June 21 /CNW/ - Duluth Metals Limited ("Duluth") (TSX: DM)
(TSX:DM.U) today announced significant assay results for an additional ten new
holes. These new assays confirm the continuation of a widespread copper,
nickel and platinum group mineralized zone as intersected by all 45 holes
drilled to date into the Maturi Extension Project near Ely, Minnesota. The
majority of the holes have been drilled into the western part of the Property.
Scott Wilson Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. is currently preparing a NI 43-101
compliant Mineral Resource Estimate and Technical Report for the Western Area
zone.
    "Our 100,000 foot 2006-2007 drill program in the Western Area has been
very successful as all of the drill holes intercepted significant
mineralization with considerable widths, reaching more than 500 feet in some
holes. This is extremely important, in that most of the holes in the Western
Area are 200 meters apart which is equivalent to two football fields including
the end-zones. This underscores the size and potential of our property" stated
Dr. Henry Sandri, President and CEO. "We anticipate releasing our 43-101
compliant resource estimate shortly."

    A complete compilation of drill holes assays will be available on our
website at www:duluthmetals.com. Further information will be presented at the
Company's Annual General Meeting which will be held at 11:00am on Tuesday,
June 26, 2007 at the Toronto Board of Trade, 1 First Canadian Place, Toronto,
Canada.
    The assay results continue to indicate a large continuous mineralized
zone in the Western Area of our property. MEX-34 intersected 190.5 feet of
0.839% copper, 0.262% nickel, and 0.753 grams per tonne of total precious
metals (TPM = Platinum+Palladium+Gold) including 40.0 feet of 1.174% copper,
0.338% nickel and 1.089 TPM. MEX-43 intersected 171.5 feet of 0.705% copper,
0.257% nickel and 0.668 grams per tonne TPM. Included in that interval are
66.5 feet of 1.006% copper, 0.318% nickel and 1.060 grams per tonne of TPM.
    True thickness is estimated at about 90% of core length. The following
table (with 0.3% copper and 0.5% copper cut-offs) contains a more detailed
summary of the drill intercepts:

    For the 2006-2007 winter drill program, half core samples were prepared
at ALS Chemex Ltd. Laboratories in Thunder Bay and then shipped to its
analytical facilities in Vancouver. Samples were analyzed for Au, Pt, Pd using
a standard fire assay with an ICP finish and for 27 other elements using a
four acid (near total) digestion and a combination of ICPMS and ICPAES. ICP
over limits were re-analyzed using sodium peroxide fusion, acid dissolution
followed by ICPAES. The remaining half core samples are being stored in
Minnesota.

and platinum group metal (PGM) deposits. Duluth's principal property is the
Maturi Extension Property located within the rapidly emerging Duluth Complex
mining camp in northeastern Minnesota. The Duluth Complex hosts one of the
world's largest undeveloped repositories of copper, nickel and PGMs, including
the world's third largest accumulation of nickel sulphides, and one of the
world's largest accumulations of polymetallic copper and platinum group
metals.
