Aldrin Makes Advisory Board Appointment

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 8, 2010) - Aldrin Resource Corp. ("Aldrin") (TSX VENTURE:ALN) is pleased to announce the appointment of Shawn Ryan from Ryanwood Exploration Inc. to its advisory board.

British Columbia's mineral exploration industry honoured Dawson City prospector Shawn Ryan on January 21st, 2010 for his work in identifying gold and other mineral deposits in the Yukon. Mr. Ryan, who operates Ryanwood Exploration Inc. with his wife Cathy Wood, received the 2009 "Spud" Huestis Award for B.C. and Yukon prospector of the year at the Mining Exploration Roundup in Vancouver in January.

Most notably, Ryanwood Exploration's prospecting led to the recent discovery of the Golden Saddle gold deposit, which is now part of Underworld Resources' White Gold property south of Dawson City. An initial resource estimate was released earlier totalling an estimate of 1,411,983 ounces of gold, including an indicated resource of 1,004,570 ounces at a grade of 3.2 g/t by SRK Consulting. http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/Underworlds-Initial-Resource-Estimate-Golden-Saddle-Indicated-Resources-1004570-Oz-32-TSX-VENTURE-UW-1103623.htm.

Aldrin has acquired 4 properties from Ryanwood Exploration over the past 6 months. The Keystone, IND and Longline Properties will be the focus for Aldrin's proposed $6 million drill program this summer. Aldrin's fourth project, the Brew will undergo more extensive soil and geo chemistry work.

President and CEO Johnathan More states, "We are very happy to have Shawn take a more formal role with our company. We are thrilled for him and his family for this recent award. This is going to be a busy summer drill season and we strongly believe that having Shawn's willingness to join our advisory board is a very good indicator for the potential of our properties. Furthermore, his presence on our advisory board will ensure that our exploration team has the benefit of his special local knowledge and experience."
