Adroit Resources Inc.: 3,000 Metres Plus Diamond Drilling Commenced on Simon Copper Property, Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 12, 2007) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FWB:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) -

Management is pleased to provide the following update on its wholly owned Simon Copper Property located in Ontario, Canada.

A minimum of 3,000 metres diamond drilling programme on the Simon Copper Property commenced on January 11th, 2007.

The diamond drilling programme will initially test the B anomaly, and then proceed to the South Zone (Simon Copper Deposit). A Time Domain-Electromagnetic survey (TD-EM) is scheduled on the D Grid once ice conditions are favourable.

The B and D anomalies represent two of five airborne geophysical features with signatures that resemble the response over the Simon Copper Deposit (South Zone).

Results from the TD-EM survey completed in December, on the B grid, have identified several drill targets for immediate follow-up. Two diamond drill holes will initially test the anomaly. Results will be made available once the assay results have been received.

The South Zone has a historical resource of 253,000 tons grading 1.09% Cu that does not comply with National Instrument 43-101 standards. This deposit was discovered in the 1960's by Noranda and Young Davidson Mines. No assays were taken for Zn, although grab samples from surface assayed 4-6% Zn. Pelangio Mines drill-tested the South Zone in 2000 and 2003 using several widely spaced holes, and demonstrated continuation of mineralization down plunge of the main deposit. Adroit has not independently sampled this zone.

The last round of drilling at the South Zone Deposit in 2003, is reported to have intersected a large garnet alteration halo adjacent to the mineralization. This alteration suggests the possibility of a large mineralizing system.

The Simon Copper property consists of 12 contiguous claims (92 units) covering 1,472 hectares in Denbigh and Lyndoch townships, Ontario.

The Property is located within a 175 km north-east trending belt of volcanic rocks. This belt hosts a series of deposits, including the former producing New Calumet Mine, which produced 3.4 million tonnes grading 6.0% Zn, 1.7% Pb, 124 g/t Ag and 0.65 g/t Au. The Simon Copper Property consists of multiple surface showings including the South Zone, North Zone, and East Zone.
