Adroit Board Approves C$900,000 Central Italy Work Programme

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 24, 2006) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FWB:A7V) -

Programme Approval. Management is pleased to announce that the Company's board of directors approved Project Manager Guy Franceschi's, Central Italy Project C$900,000 work programme following the board's Central Italy property visits last week. This work programme includes the field work announced on April 11, 2006 and is designed to cover all exploration work and property payments until the end of 2006.

Programme Outline. The programme includes geological mapping, geophysical surveys, and rock and soil sampling of the Pietratonda, Frassine and Fogari properties. All other properties are to be mapped and surveyed. Subject to permitting, which management is confident it will obtain, drilling of Poggio Fogari and Poggio Pietricci is planned, aimed at testing the gold potential (bulk and/or high-grade gold mineralization) of a number of outlined (rock and soil) geochemical and geophysical anomalies.

As a result of recently obtained additional historical information the Frassine, Poggio Pietricci and Le Cetine properties will also be examined for their potential to host economic antimony deposits. Stibnite (Sb2S3), the predominant ore mineral of antimony, is one of the "pathfinder minerals" for gold in epithermal systems such as the one currently being explored by Adroit. It is primarily used as a hardener in lead for storage batteries, with additional applications in solders and other alloys, and antimony trioxide is primarily used in flame-retardant formulations. The properties under consideration host several former producing mines and abundant antimony showings.

In one particular case, Macchia Casella on the Poggio Pietricci property, a previous explorer, SAMIM S.p.A., Divisione Mineraria, in their March 1983 report "Relazione sulla ricerca per antimonio eseguita a Macchia Casella" (Manciano-Grosseto) has outlined a surface antimony deposit with a reported open resource of almost 465,000 tonness at an average grade of 1.58% Sb, mainly in the form of stibnite, giving approximately 7,350 tonnes of metal in the ground. The drilling and calculation of this historic antimony resource is based on the results of the drilling of 57 percussion holes, with the collection, at regular intervals, of some 1,081 samples, totaling some 1,978m of drilling. Management is confident that the mentioned resource provides an excellent starting point for its antimony exploration campaign. Between the early 19th and late 20th centuries, Italy was a medium-sized producer of antimony, with an output during the 20th Century of a few hundred to a few thousand tonnes annually. Mining was essentially concentrated in Southern Tuscany, more particularly in the areas where the company's Poggio Pietricci property occurs. The price of antimony is quoted at US$5,300/tonnes cif (Mining Journal, May 12), having increased from US$2,300/tonnes over the past 18 months (Mining Annual Review, 2005).

The above estimate is historical and is not in compliance with National Instrument 43-101, "Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Deposits" ("NI 43-101"). In addition, Adroit has not done the work necessary to verify the classification or the values sited in the resource; is not treating it as a NI 43-101 defined resource verified by a Qualified Person; and, this historical estimate should not be relied upon.

Pietratonda Mapping. Dr Mehmet Taner, Ph.D., P.Geo., has joined the exploration team for the specific task of mapping Pietratonda and preparing a report on this property. Dr Mehmet Taner was the author of the Company's National Instrument 43-101 Independent Technical Report on the Frassine, Fogari and Pietricci properties (the Southern Tuscany Gold Project), which is available on SEDAR.

Board Visits a Working Mine in Italy. Prior to the work programme approval board meeting, the board visited a working kaolin mine near the Company's properties. The board was conducted around the mine by a member of the delegation from the Regional Mines Department of Grosseto, Italy, who had been hosted by the Company in Canada, as reported in the Company's May 5, 2006 news release. The official drew to the board's attention the fact that the mining permit had been issued in 1999 and was for a period of twenty years.

European Gold Centre. Henk Krasenberg, Chairman of the European Gold Centre, joined the Central Italy Project property visits in order to bring himself up to date and prior to writing a report on the Company's activities. Many readers of this news release will recognise Henk from his articles in Research World and as a speaker in other resource forums.

TSX Venture Exchange Final Approval. The Company will be making an application to the TSX Venture Exchange for the final approval of the Southern Tuscany Gold Project, once it receives the TSX Venture Exchange's final acceptance for the Company's private placement announced on May 12, 2006.

Central Italy Project Office. The Company's project office is located centrally to the Company's property interests in Campagnatico. Campagnatico is a short distance from the new motorway being built from Grosseto to Siena and is about 15 kilometres from Grosseto. The board was pleased to see how well and inexpensively this office had been put into operation by our resident team since its inception in February 2006. This office has already been visited by some European investors of the Company.

Dr. Scott Jobin-Bevans, Ph.D., P.Geo., who is the Company's Qualified Person for its Italian project under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical content of this news release in respect of that project.

Adroit Resources is a mineral exploration company that is currently prospecting for Gold in Central Italy and diamonds, precious and base metals in the Temagami area of Ontario, Canada.
