Adroit Resources Inc.: Diamond Drilling Programmme Planned for Timiskaming Rift Properties

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 23, 2006) - Adroit Resources Inc. ("Adroit") (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(BERLIN:A7V)(FWB:A7V) is pleased to report that a diamond drilling programme is planned to commence in early February on its Timiskaming Rift 66.66% owned diamond and metal properties in the Temagami area of Ontario, Canada. The programme will be operated by Caracle Creek International Consulting Inc. under the direction of Scott Jobin-Bevans, Ph.D., P.Geo.

Adroit's exploration programme will consist of two phases focusing mainly on targets defined from previous work completed as part of a Joint Venture Agreement with Tres-Or Resources Ltd.. The bulk of Adroit's exploration programme will consist of diamond drilling programmes aimed at testing several kimberlite targets, developed on the basis of geology, geophysical surveys and surficial geochemical surveys.

Phase I, planned for February, will focus on two areas within the Temagami North Property. The first area includes several targets in Lundy Township that occur in close proximity to Contact Diamond Corporation's diamondiferous 95-2 Kimberlite. The second group of Temagami North targets is located in Bucke Township, within 350 to 700 metres of the diamondiferous Bucke Kimberlite Pipe. Phase II of Adroit's exploration programme, planned for March, will focus on its 66.66% owned Temagami East and Substitution properties, and will be aimed at developing and refining diamond drill targets.

Adroit's 66.66% owned Temagami Properties are favourably located both within and proximal to the Lake Timiskaming Structural Zone (LTSZ). The LTSZ, a major transcontinental fault zone, is interpreted to be the major controlling structural element to several clusters of kimberlites in the Kirkland Lake, Notre Dame du Nord, and New Liskeard areas, continuing north-westward into the Attawapiskat areas. More than 20 kimberlite occurrences have been discovered in the area of the LTSZ including Contact Diamond Corporation's diamondiferous 95-2, KL-1 and KL-22 kimberlites being explored by bulk sampling and definition drilling in Lundy and Klock townships, Tres-Or Resources Ltd./Arctic Star Diamond Corp.'s recently reported Lapointe occurrence, and De Beers' Victor pipe in the James Bay Lowlands.

Kimberlite discoveries in the Temagami Area are ideally located to benefit from well developed road, rail and power networks, abundant water resources and a seasoned mining workforce. These factors offer the potential to lower the economic threshold for kimberlite discoveries through relatively lower capital and operating costs compared to advanced projects in northern Canada. In combination with the large size of recent discoveries by Contact Diamond, the excellent infrastructure can significantly lower the economic threshold through reduced exploration, capital and operating costs in comparison to diamond discoveries located in the far north of Canada.

Adroit Resources is a mineral exploration company that is currently exploring for Gold in Central Italy and diamonds, precious and base metals in the Temagami area of Ontario, Canada. The Company's issued and outstanding share capital is 18,651,071 shares.
