Aldrin Completes Keystone Drill Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 17, 2010) - Aldrin Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ALN) (the "Company") has completed a 2000 metre drill program on the company's 100-per-cent-owned Keystone gold project, located in the Mayo district of the Yukon. Twelve core holes were drilled to test a 3 kms long by 1 km wide gold in soil anomaly. Assay results have been received from all twelve holes.

Previous exploration work on the Keystone property had identified an anomalous gold/arsenic/antimony mineralized trend that measured approximately 3.2 kilometres long by as much as 1.5 kilometres wide that contained several parallel structures. Anomalous gold values of up to 2.6 grams per tonne were reported in soils. These anomalous gold values coincided with high arsenic (up to 10,000 parts per million) and antimony (up to 2,000 ppm) values.

The program demonstrated that a strongly silicified structural corridor is present. The structure is characterized by highly anomalous arsenic values and occasionally contains anomalous gold. Overall the results indicate that the structures and surrounding host rock contain several continuous zones of low grade (less than 1 gram per tonne) gold mineralization.

Several hundred outcrop samples were collected from exposures scattered within the anomaly and a geological mapping program was also completed. The Company enlarged the existing soil sample grid during the late summer and when results are received the company will evaluate future plans and the overall economic potential of the Keystone Project. President and CEO Johnathan More states, "Although we have recovered lower grade gold assay results we have positively discovered a gold system. More work will be required to fully understand the nature of the system we are dealing with. We have also substantially increased the size of our gold/arsenic/antimony mineralized trend. We are well financed and are looking forward to drilling our other projects this summer."

The Company has four advanced stage gold exploration projects located in the Yukon and three are within the White Gold district. The Keystone project is the only project that the Company controls that is not in the White Gold, Dawson mining district. The drill rig has now been mobilized and drilling will immediately commence on the Company's second project, the Longline property.

The Company's disclosure of a technical or scientific nature in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Bert W. Jeffries, the Company's vice-president of exploration and development, who serves as a qualified person under the definition of National Instrument 43-101. The Keystone property represents an early stage exploration property and does not contain any mineral resources as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
