Adroit Resources Inc.: Central Italy Progress

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 2, 2006) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FSE:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) -

Additional permit applied for: Management is please to report that application has been made for an additional exploration permit totaling 246 ha. This permit, called Faggio Scritto, brings the Company's total holding of permits, granted and applied for, in Central Italy to 7,414 ha.

Faggio Scritto is contiguous to the Company's Poggio Pietricci property, extending the combined holding to 1,015 ha. The property is prospective for gold and antimony. Exploration on the property, conducted by the Anglo American and AGIP joint venture between 1987 and 1991, identified a large gold-in-soil anomaly that was never tested. Faggio Scritto also hosts part of a large antimony mineralization identified during an intensive drilling campaign in 1983 by a local mining company called Samim. Samim estimated an open resource of nearly 500,000 tons at 1.6% antimony (Sb). The other part of the resource is located on the adjacent Poggio Pieticci property, currently held by Adroit. The resource estimate and the historical data are non-conformable with National Instrument 43-101 and these historical references have not yet been independently verified by Adroit.

Exploration Update: Management is please to report that diamond drilling is currently underway on its Poggio Pietricci property. The 5-6 shallow hole (250-300m) program is designed to confirm the location of the gold and antimony mineralization reported by previous explorers, which includes Samim, AGIP and Anglo American and to provide further geological information. The previous exploration, mainly conducted by the Anglo-American AGIP joint venture, consisted of geochemistry (stream, rock and soils), ground geophysical surveys, trenching and limited reconnaissance drilling. The drilling identified shallow, high-grade gold mineralization in the Podere Morelli area, where Adroit is currently drilling.

To date, 4 vertical holes, averaging 50m in depth, have been completed on Poggio Pietricci. Preliminary results have been received on the first two holes. These holes, referred to as PP001/2006 and PP002/2006, confirm the presence of shallow antimony mineralization in the northernmost part of Poggio Pietricci. The ICP (aqua regia digestion) analysis of the core from the two drill holes returned several anomalous Sb values (greater than 0.4%) over intervals of 1 to 6 m. These anomalous samples will now be assayed with a more precise sample preparation and assaying method. The location of the drilling corresponds to the area reported by Samim to host the historical resource referred to above.

Once this program is completed, the drill will be moved to Poggio Fogari, where it will carry out an initial 1-3 hole program (250-325m).

The data collected from this initial drill campaign will be interpreted and used to assist in the design of a more extensive drill programme seeking both gold and antimony. All core samples, including field duplicates and blanks, will be sent to Laboratoires Filab in France for standard preparation, gold assaying (fire assay on 30g charge) and multi-element analysis (ICP).

Activities in Italy are carried out from Adroit's exploration office in the village of Campagnatico. The surveys are carried out by the staff geologist and managed by geologist Guy Franceschi, who is a director of Adroit. Mr. Franceschi is a Qualified Person under the guidelines of National Instrument 43-101 and he has reviewed and approved the scientific contents of this news release.

This grant, in part, replaces 150,000 Incentive Stock Options that expired in October, 2006. The options are non-transferable. Any shares issued to "associated consultants"(as that term is defined in B.C. Instrument 45-105) pursuant to the exercise of options held by them will be subject to a four month hold period commencing on the date of the grant of the options. Shares issued to other optionees on the exercise of such options will not be subject to a hold period. The grant of options is subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
