Adroit Resources Inc.: Italian Discovery Drilling Resumes/Project Manager Appointed

VANCOUER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 2, 2007) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FRANKFURT:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) -

Discovery Drilling Resumed. Management is pleased to announce that it drilling has resumed at the Poggio Fogari gold project in Central Italy. The programme aims at testing a mineralized fault locally and a recently discovered induced polarization (IP) chargeability anomaly (see news release of December 4th, 2006).

The drilling programme at Poggio Fogari is being carried out with one drill rig from S Drilling & Consultancy BVBA, Belgium. The driller had planned to commence drilling in late February 2007 as reported in news release January 23, 2007. However, an industry wide shortage of spare parts for their Longyear 44 drill rig and other external factors delayed the start-up.

The target area is traversed by a NNW-SSE oriented high-angle fault which juxtaposes the prospective Calcare Cavernoso limestone with the overlying argillaceous Eocene to Cretaceous flysh formations. Assays carried out by past exploration (confirmed by the Company's work) on randomly collected float and outcrop of jasperoid rocks, which abundantly occur along the fault, frequently returned gold contents in excess of 0.25g/t with peaks of 2.8 and 3.5 g/t Au. Recent systematic soil sampling by Adroit confirmed the presence of gold mineralization along the fault structure.

Earlier drilling at Poggio Fogari in November 2006, was suspended on Hole PF001/2006 at a depth of 46 m in highly altered limestone (Calcare Nummulitico) when the contractor stated that their drilling equipment and their drilling methods were inappropriate to drill properly the alternation of soft clays and harder limestone (see news release December 22nd, 2006).

A pole-dipole IP orientation survey carried out in November 2006, also identified a strong chargeability anomaly. Further pole-dipole IP surveying of the area in January and February 2007 confirmed the presence of the anomaly and discontinuously recognized it along five profiles of 450-1,000m length, spaced 250m apart giving a minimum strike length of 1,000 metres. The chargeable anomaly is located in the central-eastern part of the property. The northwest-southeast trending anomaly, with a maximum response of approximately 15 mV/V (milliseconds) above background, occurs at about 75m below surface on its northern part and appears to be related to the major high-angle fault, described above. The anomaly deepens gradually towards the south where it disappears, possibly extending below the detection limit of the survey (about 200m depth). The anomaly will be tested with a series of diamond drill holes.

On-going geochemical soil sampling and pole-dipole IP surveying in other parts of the permit, are expected to generate new drill targets, which might be tested during the current drilling campaign.

Poggio Fogari is one of nine exploration permits granted to the Company. The Poggio Fogari property was increased in size from 749 ha to 1,100 ha by the addition of the recently granted I Monti permit, which includes the favourable geological context (large tracts of limestone) associated with local gold highs in assayed rock samples. I Monti is similar in setting and gold response as the Poggio Fogari anomaly west of the NNW-SSE fault. Neither permit has ever been drill tested.

Mr. Franceschi, Economic Geologist who is also a director of Adroit, is a Qualified Person under the guidelines of National Instrument 43-101 and he has reviewed and approved the geological technical information contained in this news release.

Project Manager Appointed. Management is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Franco Maranzana as Project Manager of Adroit's Central Italy Project with effect from May 1, 2007.

Dr. Franco Maranzana, Geologist, studied geology and geochemistry in Rome University and geophysics at the Imperial College, London. He has more than 40 years of experience in the field of mineral exploration having worked for governments (Italy and Australia), International Organisations, (UN, EU and OLADE ), Multinationals (US, Steel), private companies and as a consultant in many countries around the world. He participated in the evaluation of the Los Pelambres Copper deposit in Chile and the Abu Dabbab Tin and Tantulum ore body in Egypt. He also worked in the field of seismic risk reduction and the management of a co-operation funds programme in Croatia. He was a director of the Mining Association of Italy.

In 1984, Dr. Franco Maranzana and Dr. Richard Sillitoe first started to develop the idea that Central Italy might host economic deposits of microscopic or non-visible gold. In 1985, they surveyed the area and promoted the JV between AGIP and Anglo American.

The project will remain under the technical supervision of Mr. Guy Franceschi, director of the Company.

President's Comments. Graeme Rowland, President, said; "I very pleased that the drilling delay is now over and I hope it proceeds smoothly from here on in. I welcome Franco Maranzana to our team and we look forward to working with him to prove his and Dr. Richard Sillitoe's theory on gold depositions in Central Italy."

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 and Bancroft areas of Ontario, Canada. In addition, Adroit is seeking new precious and base metal projects to add to its expanding portfolio. The Company's issued and outstanding share capital is 30,684,815 common shares.

On behalf of the Board of Directors

Graeme Rowland, Chairman and President
