TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Duluth Metals Limited ("Duluth Metals") (TSX: DM) (TSX: DM.U) is pleased to announce assay results for 28 holes on the Birch Lake Deposit within the Twin Metals Minnesota Project in northeastern Minnesota. The Birch Lake Deposit is one of three mineral resources in close proximity to one another within the Twin Metals Minnesota Project, these being the Maturi, Birch Lake and Spruce Road Deposits. All of the holes have significant length intercepts continuing to indicate a higher grade platinum+palladium+gold (TPM) content within the Birch Lake resource relative to other resources in the project. These additional holes will be incorporated into the final resource estimate to be issued by AMEC in early December 2012.
"The addition of these holes to the Birch Lake database will provide the basis for a stronger estimate in the western part of the Twin Metals Minnesota Project. The Birch Lake resource provides potential flexibility in the project as it is geographically separate (5 miles) from Maturi, and shows a higher contribution to revenue from precious metals than some of the other sections in the project", stated Vern Baker, President of Duluth Metals.
Phillip Larson, P. Geo. is the Qualified Person for Duluth Metals and Senior Geologist for Duluth Metals, in accordance with NI 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators, and is responsible for Duluth Metals technical content of this press release and quality assurance of the exploration data and analytical results.
