Duluth Metals Continued Drilling Expands Nokomis Deposit
======================================================================

TORONTO, Ontario, February 14, 2008 - Duluth Metals Limited ("Duluth
Metals") (TSX: DM) (TSX:DM.U) today announced significant assay results
for five in-fill and three step-out holes from its Maturi Extension
Properties in Minnesota. Highlights from the step-out drilling include
MEX-69 which intersected 137.8 feet of 0.661% copper and 0.200% nickel
with 0.861 grams per tonne (g/t) of Total Precious Metals (TPM Platinum+palladium+Gold), including 19.7 feet of 1.583% copper, 0.696%
nickel, 1.529 g/t TPM and 3.0 g/t silver. Step-out hole MEX-73
intersected 108.2 feet of 0.638% copper, 0.177% nickel, 0.905 g/t TPM
and 2.1 g/t silver including 39.3 feet of 0.830% copper, 0.222 %
nickel, 1.110 g/t TPM and 2.4 g/t silver with a 14.7 foot section of
1.045% copper, 0.251 % nickel, 1.282 g/t TPM and 2.9 g/t silver.

The highlight in-fill hole was MEX-76 which intersected 220 feet of
0.615% copper, 0.203% nickel, 0.419 g/t TPM including 115 feet of 0.791
copper, 0.248% nickel and 0.547 g/t TPM with a 20 foot section of
0.962% copper, 0.306 % nickel and 0.693 g/t TPM.

"We are continuing with our aggressive 200,000 foot drilling program
with the objective of expanding our Nokomis Resource to the east and
south and completing closer spaced drilling within the Nokomis Resource
Block. The drill results are very encouraging as we continue to
intersect mineralization in every hole. We are extremely excited with
the elevated platinum, palladium and gold numbers and strong nickel
grades in our eastern area." stated Dr. Henry Sandri, President and
CEO. "We are proceeding further with step-out, in-fill and PQ
drilling."

Duluth is currently deploying five drills in an aggressive
Winter-Spring 2008 program. The program comprises in-fill and step-out
drilling to the existing large Nokomis Resource Block, and exploration
drilling to define new mineralization in the Eastern Exploration Area.
In November 2007, the Company added a fifth drill to accelerate the
program and commence large diameter drilling in the Nokomis Deposit to
start the production of bulk samples for further metallurgical testing.


A "MEX 69-76 Location Map" highlighting these eight holes can be found
on our Company website at www.duluthmetals.com.

True thickness is estimated at about 90% of core length. Drill hole
MEX-71 was not completed with drilling suspended in mineralization due
to technical difficulties*. The following table with (0.3% copper and
0.5% copper cut-offs) contains a more detailed summary of the drill
intercepts:

For the 2008 drill program, half core samples have been prepared at ALS
Chemex Ltd. laboratories in Thunder Bay and then shipped to its
analytical facilities in Vancouver. Samples are being analyzed for Au,
Pt, and 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.

David Oliver, P. Geo. and Duluth Project Manager is the Qualified
Person, in accordance with NI 43-101 of the Canadian Securities
Administrators, and is responsible for the technical content of this
press release and quality assurance of the exploration data and
analytical results.
