Adriana Resources Inc.: MIE Ni-Cu-PGE Exploration and Drilling Update Nunavut, Canada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 6, 2007) - Adriana Resources Inc. ("Adriana" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ADI) is pleased to announce an update of the winter exploration and drilling program at the MIE Ni-Cu-PGE Project in Nunavut, Canada.

In late April 2007, the Company completed the construction of a fully-permitted twenty person camp on the north end of McGregor Lake. Major Drilling Group International Inc. completed two diamond drill holes (totaling 1,357 meters) on the Company's wholly-owned McGregor Lake Property.

MC07-02 578200 7415170 515 090 -58 674
(UTM NAD 83, Zone 11N)

Subsequent to the completion of the drill holes Crone Geophysics and Exploration Ltd. ("Crone") conducted downhole surveys of each borehole using a three-component borehole pulse EM ("BHPEM") system. Crone also completed 25.2 line-kilometers of ground SQUID electromagnetic surveys. This is a continuation of the SQUID surveys conducted by Crone in 2006. MWH Geo-Surveys Inc. collected 1,120 gravity stations on the McGregor Lake Property over the Muskox intrusion.

All the core from both holes was split and sent to SGS Mineral Services in Ontario and the Company awaits analytical results. Drill core samples of each major lithologic unit were sent to Vancouver Petrographics Ltd. Thin sections of each unit and polished sections from sulphide-bearing zones will be prepared along with a petrographic report.

An advanced geological and physical properties model will be created from the combined data sets.
