TORONTO, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Duluth Metals Limited ("Duluth Metals") ("Company") (TSX: DM) (TSX:DM.U) today announced that the Company has closed its previously announced convertible debenture financing with purchasers including CEF (Capital Markets) Limited for CDN $30 Million aggregate principal amount of unsecured convertible debentures of Duluth Metals. The debentures mature April 10, 2018 and bear interest at an annual rate of 7.5%. The debentures are convertible into common shares of the Company at a conversion price based on a 30% premium to the 20 day volume-weighted average price (VWAP) of the common shares at the close of trading on March 28, 2013.  The 20 day VWAP is $1.74 and the conversion price is $2.26.
