Duluth Metals Appoints Kelly J. Osborne As COO

TORONTO, July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Duluth Metals Limited (" Duluth  Metals") (TSX: DM) (TSX:DM.U) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Kelly J. Osborne as its Chief Operating Officer (COO).  Mr. Osborne is a mining executive with over twenty-eight years of industry experience in the United States and Indonesia with major US based mining companies including Freeport-McMoRan, Vulcan Materials and Stillwater Mining Company.

Prior to his appointment to Duluth Metals, Mr. Osborne was Senior Vice-President, Underground Operations ( Indonesia) with Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold, and prior to that from 2006 to 2010, Vice-President, Underground Operations ( Indonesia). During his tenure with Freeport, Kelly was responsible for operational and capital development for two underground mines, including a multi-billion dollar capital budget for underground mine expansion, a substantial annual operating budget, and led a large multi-national workforce. Prior to Freeport-McMoRan, he was Area Manager with Vulcan Materials Company in the Chicago area, and was responsible for three mining operations producing construction aggregate products.  Prior to that, he was Mining Superintendent at the Nye, Montana PGM mine for Stillwater Mining Company; Plant Manager for J.M. Huber Corporation at the Marble Falls, Texas calcium carbonate operation; Buick Mine Captain at the Doe Run Company lead-zinc underground mine; and Mine Planning Engineer at Homestake Mining Company's Lead, South Dakota operations.

Christopher Dundas, CEO & Chairman of Duluth Metals commented, " Kelly Osborne brings to Duluth Metals a unique set of credentials from his senior development and operations background with Freeport-McMoRan in Indonesia.  Kelly was leading the development group in moving Grasberg from an open-pit to a large underground operation. With this appointment, Duluth Metals has greatly enhanced its mining and development team."

Vern Baker, President of Duluth Metals, stated, " Kelly Osborne's operational and management expertise in large scale underground mining and capital development will be a major asset to Duluth Metals. Kelly's input on the planning and development of our key asset (a proposed underground copper-nickel-platinum group mining project in Minnesota), as well as his insight on new projects arising from the exploration pipeline will strengthen the company. Kelly's experience in organizational development and in safety, health, and environmental systems will also help move our projects forward."

Mr. Osborne holds a BS Mine Engineering degree from the University of Arizona and belongs to the Society of Mining Engineers as well as the Society of Explosive Engineers. While in charge of operations, Freeport received the NOSA Five Star award for underground operations from 2006 to 2009. Kelly is originally from Minnesota, and is pleased at the opportunity to return and contribute to the state.
