Adroit Resources Inc.: Red Vein Property Exploration Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FRANKFURT:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) -

Management is pleased to announce that the results have been received from the third phase of soil geochemical surveys on Adroit Resources Inc.'s wholly owned, 3,392 Ha, Red Vein property, located 80 kilometres south of Timmins, Ontario.

Reconnaissance Mobile Metal Ions (MMI) soil sampling was carried out during the 2008 summer exploration season in the westernmost part of the Red Vein property (to see figure 1, please click on the following link: during three phases of surveying. The total surface area covered with soil sampling represents about 105 hectares. The tested parts of the property are covered by a varying thickness of overburden with little or no rock outcropping on surface. Phases 1 and 2 of the survey identified four distinct geochemical anomalies (A-D, see News Release of February 17, 2009).

During the third phase of surveying a total of 592 samples were taken at intervals of 25 m to 50m with line spacing of 75m to 150m. The material collected from the sample pits comprised damp, light to dark brown soil, representing the B horizon from depths varying from 25 cm to 85 cm (depending on the terrain). Analysis for 7 base-metal elements was performed by SGS Minerals Laboratories in Toronto, Ontario.

The results have revealed several new anomalous areas as well as confirmed and/or extended previously recognized EM anomalies. The two 'new' most prominent anomalies (E and F) occur in the westernmost part of the surveyed area (see figure 1). Both anomalies are about 400 to 450m long and 350 to 400m wide.

They consist of clusters of samples that have response ratios (the number times background for each geochemical element) that exceed 25 for copper and zinc as well as one local high response ratio for nickel in anomaly E, and a few samples that have response ratios that exceed 25 for silver in anomaly F. Anomaly F, covered by samples from both Phase 1 and Phase 3 of the MMI survey, also corresponds to separate airborne electromagnetic anomalies (OGS survey, 1989).

Adroit will aggressively explore the Red Vein property in 2010 with ground geophysical (induced polarization, "IP") surveys over the various MMI anomalous areas and plans to drill test the possibly overlapping IP and MMI anomalies. The Company cautions that the strength of MMI geochemistry is not a reliable indicator of mineralization nor can it be used to determine grade.

Adroit Resources' exploration efforts for Red Vein are focused on the VMS potential of the property, located approximately 10km south-east of the former Tyranite Gold Mine and 8 km south of the Sothman nickel deposit (see News Release of October 6, 2008). Random grab sampling of five historical Cu showings (trenches) aligned along a discontinuously outcropping quartz vein returned local copper highs of respectively 1.8, 2.5, 2.6, 4.7 and 10.4 % Cu. The vein trends east-west, varies in width between 0.8 and 5.0m and has been discontinuously recognized over a 2.3km length. The five sampled showings are in five separate regularly spaced locations along the entire recognized length of the vein. Anomalous gold values (up to 0.13g/t) are also associated with these copper values.
