Adroit Resources Inc.: Niemitz Drilling Completed and Simon Drilling Commencing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 14, 2008) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FRANKFURT:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) -

Management is pleased to provide the following update on drilling at its wholly owned Niemetz and Simon Properties located in Ontario, Canada.

Niemitz Property Drilling. A four (4) hole, 1,100 metre diamond drilling programme on the Niemitz Property was completed on December 13, 2007.

Assay results are pending and will be published when received.

Niemitz Property Description. The Niemitz property consists of 8 contiguous claims (24 units) covering 384 hectares in Briggs Township, Ontario, Canada. It is located between two deposits, the former Teck Copperfields Mine, located 4 kilometres to the west, and the Diadem deposit, located 10 kilometres to the east. The Copperfields Mine produced 684,000 tons of ore grading 6.48% Cu and 6.68 g/t Au between 1954 and 1972 and the Diadem-Copper-Nickel deposit has a known historical resource (non NI-43-101 compliant) of 500,000 tons @ 0.50% Cu and 0.1% Ni tested to a depth of 500 feet (J.R. Poloni, 2001).

Simon Copper/Zinc Property Drilling. Management is pleased to announce a follow up, minimum 2,500 metre, diamond drilling programme commencing on January 14th, 2008 on its Simon Property, in eastern Ontario. Cartwright Drilling has been contracted to do the drilling.

Early last year, the Company obtained encouraging results from a 20 hole, 3,029 metre diamond drilling programme carried out on the Simon Copper/Zinc Property. The programme was split between the B Zone and the South Zone.

On the South Zone, 15 holes were completed, totaling 2,414 metres. All of the holes tested the continuity of the South Zone. Additionally, Zinc was discovered in this historic Copper resource (see News Release April 11, 2007). The South Zone has a historical resource of 253,000 tons grading 1.09% Cu that does not comply with National Instrument 43-101.

A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current mineral resources, the issuer is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources and the historical estimate should not be relied upon.

This deposit was discovered in the 1960's by Noranda and Young Davidson Mines. No assays were reported for Zinc, 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 continuity of mineralization down plunge of the main deposit.

The B Zone is located 1,400 metres south of the South Zone. The B Zone is one of five airborne anomalies with signatures that resemble the response over the historic Simon Copper Deposit (South Zone).

On the B Zone, 5 holes were completed totaling 615 meters, as previously reported in the Company's March 14, 2007 News Release. All of the holes intersected semi-massive to massive sulphides in this new discovery.

The follow up diamond drilling programme will initially test the B Zone discovery, on strike and depth, and then proceed to the South Zone (Simon Copper Deposit) to test at greater depth.

The drilling will then test the North Zone and lastly the D Zone anomaly which occurs to the south of the B Zone. The North Zone and the D Zone anomaly represent two of the five airborne geophysical features with signatures that resemble the response over the Simon Copper Deposit (South Zone).

The North Zone is located just 200 metres to the north of the South Zone. Historical grab samples from the surface trenches have returned assays up to 11.2% Cu, (Noranda 1990's). Eugene Simon completed six drill holes (totalling 328.7m; small pack-sack drill mid 1950's) on the North Zone; assays were not reported, but chalcopyrite and pyrite were intersected in 5 of the 6 holes with widths ranging from 0.61 m to 3.66 m.

Noranda completed a single hole (DH-94-2 1994) to test the down hole plunge continuity of the North Zone. No assays were reported. However, two narrow magnetite-rich iron formations, with pyrite, pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite mineralization, were intersected by the hole.

Results from the TD-EM survey completed in May 2007 on the D Zone grid have identified several drill targets for follow-up. Two diamond drill holes will initially test the anomaly. Results will be made available once the assay results have been received.

The Simon 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.
