Adroit Announces Arrival of Drill Rig on the Little Pigeon Lake Property-Drilling to Target the West End of High-Grade Copper-Gold Vein

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 2, 2012) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FRANKFURT:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V). Drill Arrived Little Pigeon Lake - Drilling Commencing on Western End of high-grade copper-gold vein to test affinities with the Hollinger/McIntyre/Coniarum Complex.

The Little Pigeon Lake project is located in the south-eastern part of the Company's Red Vein property which consists of 192 claim units for a total area of 3,072 hectares. The project is located in Natal Township, south of Timmins.

Management is pleased to announce that Forage Perfection Inc. has mobilized a drill rig to the Little Pigeon Lake property (Shining Tree Mining Camp) where it will test high-grade copper-gold mineralization at the western end of the 2.3 km strike length copper-gold-bearing quartz vein on the property. The diamond drill contract with Forage Perfection Inc. is for 4,000 meters with a minimum of 1,500 meters.

President Graeme Rowland states; "We are pleased to announce the arrival of a drill at our high-grade copper-gold target on the Little Pigeon Lake property. Our drill program will initiate modern-day exploration on a target we believe to have affinities to the Hollinger-MacIntyre-Coniorum Complex at Timmins. We are testing an integrated multivariate target based on geological, geophysical and geochemical databases and are anxious to test the potential of this 2.3 km long target."

The drill program will test the high-grade vein and the associated inferred porphyry intrusion identified from the deep IP survey. This will be the first drill program to test the high-grade copper-gold mineralization and will be confined to the first 250 m of the exposed quartz vein where the most significant amount of geoscientific data has been collected (refer to Adroit Resources news release of January 3, 2012).

An access trail has been constructed by the Company from Grassy Road to Little Pigeon Lake. Construction equipment will continue to develop access to the copper-gold mineralized vein for a planned summer prospecting, mapping, geophysical and geochemical exploration program.

The project is part of the Company's Red Vein Property and situated in the heart of a highly productive mining triangle between the established centers of Timmins, Sudbury and Kirkland Lake, where more than 170 million ounces of gold and 200 million tons of base metals have been mined. Subsequent to data compilation and integration significant exploration targets have been identified on the project.

NB: The Red Vein property is immediately adjacent to the Timmins South property, held by SGX Resources Inc. (SXR), which has been the subject an extensive drilling campaign since last fall targeting near surface gold deposits. An assessment of the impact of this program and the possible relationship to the Company's ground will be made once the drill results and maps are made public.
