Adroit Resources Inc.: Central Italy Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 5, 2007) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FRANKFURT:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) -

Management is pleased to provide an update on the Company's Central Italy project.

Antimony properties: The Company continues the search for and development of antimony resources on its tenements in Central Italy, by world standards, a major antimony producer up until the 1980's (see news release of June 13, 2007). A full data compilation and review was carried out by the Company geologists, followed by oriented field checks.

Amongst the nine permits granted, two host former producing mines, namely Le Cetine and the Poggio Pietricci permits, which host respectively the former Le Cetine and Macchia Casella mines. Of the seven permits currently under application, five host former Antimony (Sb) mines with known antimony historic resources, namely Tafone Sud, Montauto, I Salaioli, Poggio Monticchio and Faggio Scritto. During the past months the Company compiled available information from a wide range of sources, including the archives from former mining companies, the data bank of the Mines Department, university libraries, etc. The data is still being reviewed, particularly with a focus on several new occurrences or extensions to mined deposits, identified in the late 1980's that were never developed (see news releases of March 27 and June 13, 2007). The consulted historical reports refer to the presence of large, medium-grade (1-2%) antimony resources within the Company's permits and permits under application, exceeding, in aggregate, 4 million tonnes of ore at an average grade of 1.3% Sb. These estimates include the (historical) high-grade resource of antimony exceeding 1 million tonnes at an average grade of 1.8% Sb, as reported in the company's news release of June 13th, 2007. The above resource estimates and the historical data are non-conformable with National Instrument 43-101, "Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Deposits", and these historical references have not yet been independently verified by the Company and should not be relied upon.

Poggio Fogari and I Monti: Work on these properties included a drilling programme aimed at testing a mineralized fault and an induced polarization (IP) chargeability anomaly identified during geophysical surveys carried out in November 2006 and January-February 2007 (see news releases of December 4th, 2006, March 1st, 2007 and May 2, 2007).

Due to technical difficulties encountered by the contractor (S Drilling & Consultancy BVBA) only one drill hole was completed over the prospect. The vertical hole PF01/07 was designed to test the strong IP chargeability anomaly. The hole intersected crystalline gypsum and anhydrite, inferred by the company's local geophysical consultant, Gianfranco Censini, to possibly be the cause of the high chargeability response. However further testing is warranted to confirm this hypothesis. No significant assay results have been returned from the section. The mineralized fault was not tested.

The chargeability anomaly, recognized along five profiles of 450-1,000m length, spaced 250m apart, is located in the central-eastern part of the property. The northwest-southeast trending anomaly, with a maximum response of approximately 15 mV/V (milliseconds) above background, occurs at about 75m below surface on its northern part and appears to be related to a major regional fault structure, which traverses the entire property.

Assays carried out by past exploration (confirmed by the company's work) on randomly collected float and outcrop of jasperoid rocks, which abundantly occur along the fault, frequently returned gold contents in excess of 0.25g/t with highs of 3.5 and 2.8g/t Au. Boulders with stibnite (antimony sulphides) are frequently observed along the fault.

The fault was not intersected by the drill hole and a planned inclined hole aimed at specifically testing the fault was not carried out.

Company geologists recommend to further test the chargeability anomaly by at least one more hole in order to properly explain the causes of the anomaly and to complete the planned drilling programme aimed at testing the mineralized fault. The management has therefore decided to seek a new driller, capable of drilling in the difficult terrain. The terrain essentially consists of a complex alternation of soft, clays, water-saturated sandstones and extremely hard silicified rock, with intercalated gypsum and anhydrite, which is very demanding on equipment.

The Poggio Fogari property was increased in size from 749 ha to 1,104 ha by the addition of the I Monti permit granted in June 2006. Neither permit had ever been drill tested.

Frassine and Macchia del Birelli: Detailed geological mapping and soil sampling programmes over the properties were carried out in February-May. The surveys confirmed the prospectivity of the Macchia del Birelli area, marked by the presence of alunite (former quarry), extensive silicification and visible antimony mineralisation in the prospective Cavernoso Limestone. The company now plans the execution of a geophysical orientation survey and intends to drill test some identified geochemical anomalies and structural targets. The geophysical survey will aim at tracing some major faults, which might have acted as conduits for the ascending mineralized fluids, under the alluvial terrains which cover the central part of the properties.

The Frassine property was increased in size from 436ha to 990ha by the addition of the Macchia del Birelli permit granted in June 2006.

Poggio Bruscoline: Detailed geological mapping and sampling was carried out between May and July 2007 on the Poggio Bruscoline property. The property is host to an old metallic underground mine, exploited in the beginning of the 20th century for zinc, lead and copper. The operation mined the mineralized structural contact between the limestone and overlying flysh sediments, the idealized prototype of southern Tuscan metallic mineralization. The survey carried out by the Company did not identify targets justifying further follow-up.

President's Comments. Graeme Rowland, President, said; "I am pleased with our progress in compiling Antimony data which I believe will lead to the possible development of a profitable mining operation. The technical difficulties experienced by the driller at Foggio Fogari are disappointing and I look forward to finding a driller who can test this exciting property fully."

Adroit Resources is a mineral exploration company that is currently exploring for Gold, Silver and Antimony in Central Italy, diamonds, precious and base metals in the Temagami and Bancroft areas of Ontario, Canada and oil and gas in Texas, USA. In addition, Adroit is seeking new precious and base metal projects and oil and gas prospects to add to its expanding portfolio. The Company's issued and outstanding share capital is 30,724,815 common shares.
