Adroit Resources Inc.: Encouraging Gold Assay Results from Central Italy

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 17, 2005) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT) -

Further to the Company's October 3rd, 2005 News Release, Chairman Graeme Rowland is pleased to announce encouraging assay results for the sixteen orientation samples taken from the Ponte San Pietro (12 samples), Banditella (2 samples) and Poggio Pietricci-Macchia Casella (2 samples) properties. These three properties are near the town of Manciano in the southern part of the Grosseto Mining District, in Central Italy.

All sixteen assayed samples contain gold with results ranging from trace (.03) to 2.1 grammes per tonne, confirming the widespread presence of gold mineralization and associated anomalous pathfinder element values (As, Sb, etc.) in the area. Random sampling of the tailings of former mine workings at the Ponte San Pietro returned excellent values including assays of 2.1, 1.8 and 0.5g/t of gold, illustrating the significant gold potential of this prospect. The gold is locally associated with high silver, copper and lead.

The samples from Poggio Pietricci-Macchia Casella represent strongly altered and mineralized outcrop and float collected near the former antimony mine on the property. The ICP assays returned, respectively, 1.5 and 4.5% Sb, to be soon verified and confirmed by more appropriate assaying techniques. The samples show traces of gold mineralization (1 sample returning 0.15g/t).

The samples from Banditella confirm the presence of intensive hydrothermal alteration with high antimony, zinc and arsenic contents and traces of gold.

Each of the 2-3kg samples has been analyzed by fire assay for gold and by ICP for a suite of 32 elements by FILAB LABORATOIRES in France. Filab is accredited by numerous organizations, and is carrying abundant assaying on samples from Europe, West and Central Africa, French Guyana and Central Asia.

All sixteen samples are now being sent to a Canadian laboratory to cross check these results as an aid to better understanding the mineralization. A further News Release will be issued when the Canadian laboratory results are to hand.

Research and compilation is continuing into the results of previous mining and exploration in the area plus a more comprehensive sampling exercise is being planned. Subject to favorable results from the sampling exercise, a drilling programme would then be undertaken.

Adroit Resources Inc. is a Canadian mineral exploration company with property interests in Temagami, Canada and Central Italy. There are currently 12,607,526 shares issued and outstanding.
