Adroit Resources Inc.: British Columbia Government Makes C$650,000 Payment on Account of Expropriation Award

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 10, 2009) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FRANKFURT:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) -

On July 30, 2009, the Company reported that the Provincial Government of British Columbia (the "Government") had filed a Notice of Appeal indicating its intention to appeal the compensation award in favour of the Company made by the Supreme Court of British Columbia on June 24, 2009. The Company subsequently protested that the Notice of Appeal was served late, with the result that the Government was required to apply to the British Columbia Court of Appeal for an Order extending the time for serving the Notice of Appeal.

The Court of Appeal granted the Government's application for an extension of time, but provided that the Government must pay $650,000 to the Company within 7 days to stay execution by the Company on its judgment. Management is pleased to report that the Company has now received the required C$650,000 payment from the Government.

The Company estimates the total value of the compensation originally awarded by the Supreme Court for the expropriation of the "Amber" mineral claims to be well in excess of $1,400,000 with costs and interest. The Government is appealing that decision in an effort to convince the Court of Appeal to reduce the quantum of that award. The Company intends to vigorously oppose the Government's appeal and has filed a Notice of Cross-Appeal seeking an increase in the quantum of the original award.

Further information concerning the judgment pronounced by the trial court in the Company's favour is set out in the Company's news release dated June 25, 2009 and t he receipt of the Government's Notice of Appeal in the Company's news release of July 30, July 2009.

The Reasons for Judgment in full can be seen on the Court's web site:
