Adroit Resources Inc.: Discovery Drilling to Recommence in Italy

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 23, 2007) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FWB:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) -

Management is pleased to report that a contract has been signed with a new drilling company, S Drilling & Consultancy BVBA, Belgium, to carry out the discovery diamond drilling at the Poggio Fogari Property, in Central Italy, and it is due to recommence drilling in late February 2007.

Poggio Fogari

Earlier drilling at Poggio Fogari, was suspended on Hole PF001/2006 at a depth of 46 m in highly altered limestone (Calcare Nummulitico) (see news release December 22nd, 2006). The Company has finalized terms of agreement for a new contractor using a Longyear 44 drill rig.

The drilling programme in Poggio Fogari aims at testing a mineralized fault and a recently discovered induced polarization (IP) chargeability anomaly (see news release of December 4th, 2006). The target is traversed by a NNW-SSE oriented high-angle fault which juxtaposes the prospective Calcare Cavernoso limestone with the overlying argillaceous Eocene to Cretaceous flysh formations. 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.

A brief (orientation) pole-dipole IP survey has located the high-angle fault, and has identified on the two southern profiles a strong chargeability anomaly. The northwest-southeast trending anomaly, with a maximum response of approximately 15 mV/V (milliseconds) above background, occurs at about 75m below surface and appears to be related to the fault. The anomaly is open to the south and seems to increase in amplitude. The delayed first hole in Poggio Fogari is aimed at testing this anomaly discovery.

The Company has planned to follow-up the orientation survey with a more complete pole-dipole IP survey which commenced on January 15, 2007 and is planned to be completed prior to the resumed drilling programme.

The surveys are carried out by the Adroit geological staff and managed by Guy Franceschi, Economic Geologist who is also a director of Adroit. Mr. Franceschi is a Qualified Person under the guidelines of National Instrument 43-101 and he has reviewed and approved the geological information contained in this news release.

Central Italy Properties. A total of twelve permits ( nine granted and three applied for ) make up seven contiguous properties.

Poggio Fogari is one of nine exploration permits granted to the Company. The Poggio Fogari property was increased in size from 749 ha to 1,100 ha by the addition of the recently granted I Monti permit, which includes the favourable geological context (large tracts of limestone) associated with local gold highs in assayed rock samples. I Monti is similar in setting and gold response as the Poggio Fogari anomaly west of the NNW-SSE fault. Neither permit has ever been drill tested.

Adroit Resources Inc. is a mineral exploration company focused on growing shareholder value through the advancement of its Central Italy and Ontario, Canada projects. There are currently 28,279,535 common shares issued and outstanding.
