Adroit Resources Inc.: West Hudson Silver/Diamond Property Doubled


Management is pleased to report that the Company has completed a staking program to more than double the size of its West Hudson silver and diamond property thereby increasing its land position in the Cobalt Camp, in Bucke and Coleman Townships of the Larder Lake Mining Division, Ontario. The Company's October 18, 2007 news release announced the original staking.

Forty-five claim units have been staked in two claim blocks totaling 720 hectares. These two blocks are contiguous with the largest block of the previously staked claims and the total property now consists of 85 claim units totaling 1,360 hectares.

These claims are generally known as a large part of the Hudson Bay Mining Company Limited Property just north and west of the town of Cobalt, Ontario.

The property is located just 750 m to the northwest of two historical deposits, the Trethewey Mine (in intermittent operation from 1904 until 1943), which yielded a reported 7.25 million ounces of silver, and the Hudson Bay Mine (operated sporadically from 1903 until 1953), which yielded approximately 6.3 million ounces of silver. Additionally, it is reported that the Trethewey Mine produced 36,000 lbs of cobalt and the Hudson Bay Mine produced 1,000 lbs of cobalt plus nickel and copper credits.

The property is also situated within the Lake Temiskaming Structural Zone (LTSZ). The LTSZ is a deep-seated northweststriking structure at least 80 Km wide which is known as the host of most of the kimberlites in the New Liskeard and Kirkland Lake area.

Personnel of the Company have a proven history of having completed exploration programs in the area dating back more than 10 years. The intimate knowledge of the area is being utilized to assemble a significant land package covering areas of favourable under-explored geology similar to the host lithologies at the historical silver deposits. A field summer exploration program comprising ground truthing and soil geochemical sampling is currently being prepared.

Information contained in the news release is not NI 43-101 compliant and has been taken from historic records at the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines.
