Adroit Resources Inc.: Exploration Update on Argentia Ridge Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT) (FRANKFURT:A7V) (BERLIN:A7V) -

Management is pleased to report that it has received the results for its winter December 2007 drill program encompassing 3 holes for a total of 884 meters and its geophysical ground and borehole InfiniTEM ® survey, on its Argentia Ridge property, in north eastern Ontario, Canada.

The 3 hole drill program was designed to test Induced Polarization (IP) chargeability anomalies which mark a long, linear, disseminated sulphide zone in felsic volcanic rocks. A historic drill hole, (Medici Mineral Corp. 1999), intersected a 23m wide zone of disseminated sulphides; containing anomalous Zn and Cu.

All of the three holes intersected anomalous zinc, copper and lead values. Diamond drill hole AR-10 has a 35.4 meters disseminated sulphides zone from 155.6 to 191m. The other two holes intersected anomalous gold values over discrete widths, namely 0.13 g/t Au over 0.5 meters from 46.70 m in hole AR-11 and 0.27g/t over 1.00 meters from 56 m in hole AR-12. The best intersections from the winter drill program are summarized below. The assays summarized below are the drill intersected core lengths, and do not represent the true widths.

Ground and borehole InfiniTEM ® TDEM surveys were carried out over the Argentia Ridge Property. The objectives of this geophysical campaign were to investigate the potential for massive sulphide mineralization zones associated with base metals and to further define the geometry and orientation of such conductors. A total of 11.7 km of ground InfiniTEM ® surveying was carried out over part of the property. Additionally, the four diamond drill holes, (AR-10, AR-11, AR-12, and the historic Medici diamond drill hole), were investigated using the borehole InfiniTEM ® configuration.

These surveys were carried out during the months of November 2007 and February 2008. One weak conductive anomaly was identified from the ground TDEM survey. The borehole survey identified three weak off-hole conductive anomalies of possible interest, which were identified in two of the here reported diamond drill holes.

The drill program confirmed the presence of copper, zinc and gold mineralization. It also gave valuable information on the geology of the area. The company is confident that the property still holds strong potential to host sizeable VMS deposits and Silver/Cobalt-type mineralization. Based on the information collected this winter, the summer exploration program will be focused on the Bulldog lake area. Detailed prospecting, soil sampling, and geological mapping are planned in conjunction with a ground IP survey.

The Argentia Ridge Property (100% owned) consists of 14 contiguous mining claim blocks comprising 96 claim units. The property is located within South Lorrain Township (Sudbury Mining Division, Ontario), about 2.5 km south of the abandoned mining town of Silver Centre.

Historically, South Lorrain Township has produced some 23,338,906 ounces of silver. Production has mainly come from the bonanza silver vein system that occurs within the first 100 metres of metavolcanic rocks that overly a gently dipping western flank of a Nipissing Gabbro intrusive. Similar geology is repeated on the Argentia Ridge property where more than 5 kilometers of prospective strike length covers the metavolcanic and Nipissing Gabbro contact. Numerous historic pits and exploration and production shafts exist on the Property
