Adroit Resources Inc.: Expropriation Compensation Trial Date

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 27, 2008) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FRANKFURT:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) -

Management is please to report that January 12, 2009 has been set as the date for commencement of the trial to determine the quantum of the compensation to be paid by the Provincial Government of British Columbia to Adroit Resources Inc.

Expropriation Claim: In July 1995, the Provincial Government of British Columbia, Canada expropriated the "Amber" mineral claims from the Company for the creation of a provincial park. The Company subsequently sought compensation for such expropriation through the courts. On June 5, 2003, the Company received a four to one judgment in its favour from the British Columbia Court of Appeal. The Court of Appeal held the Province liable, but left the amount of compensation payable to the Company to be determined. The British Columbia Government subsequently applied to the Supreme Court of Canada to have the Court of Appeal's ruling overturned. The Supreme Court of Canada dismissed the Government's application on April 8, 2004.

The Company subsequently commenced negotiations with the B.C. Government for a monetary settlement, but has not to date received an acceptable offer from the Government. Accordingly, the Company applied to the Court for a determination of the quantum of damages suffered by it. The hearing of that application has now been set for January 12, 2009.

President's Comments: Graeme Rowland, President, said: "With our corporate counsel, Holmes & King, we have completed a comprehensive legal review of the grounds for compensation and compiled a substantial body of evidence to support our claim for significant damages. I am delighted with our counsel's work and am very pleased indeed that, at last, a date has been set for determining how much Adroit is to be paid."

Adroit Resources is a mineral exploration company that is currently exploring for Gold, Silver and Antimony in Central Italy and diamonds, precious and base metals in the Temagami/Cobalt and Bancroft areas of Ontario, Canada and oil and gas in Texas, USA. In addition, Adroit is seeking new precious and base metal projects and oil and gas prospects to add to its expanding portfolio. The Company's issued and outstanding share capital is 36,617,575 common shares.
