Adroit Resources Inc.: Winter Drill Programme, Exploration and Staking Update on Red Vein Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 9, 2011) -Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FRANKFURT:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) Management is pleased to announce that all twelve diamond drill holes from its 4,061 meter winter programme at Grassy Lake have been logged and a total of 1,535 samples shipped; 1,376 samples to AGAT Laboratories Ltd. of Mississauga, Ontario, for assaying and 159 samples to ALS Canada Ltd. of Vancouver, British Columbia, for whole rock assay (see News Release dated March 28th, 2011).

Adroit expects to receive all assay results by late May 2011. These results will be published once evaluated by the Company's technical team.

Exploration Progress - Little Pigeon Lake. A 'deep' dipole IP crew from Larder Lake Geophysics, has completed their IP survey, designed to identify geophysical targets up to 400 meters below surface, and Adroit is waiting for the completion of the final report (see News Release dated February 8th, 2011).

An 8.5 km grid was cut across two main copper/quartz showings on the south-western edge of Little Pigeon Lake. The two surface showings have provided selected 'grab' sample results of 10.4% and 4.7% Cu, respectively, and were fire assayed by Accurassay Laboratories, of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The three grid lines were prepared for a Mag/VLF survey to test the lines and the entire length of the lake.

Little Pigeon Lake is about 6 km south-east of where the Grassy Lake winter drilling took place and on the western end of a east/west trending quartz vein, varying in width between 0.8 and 5.0m that has been discontinuously recognized over a 2.3 km length. Random Company 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 five Company sampled showings are from five separate regularly spaced locations along the entire recognized length of the vein and were fire assayed by Accurassay Laboratories. Anomalous gold values are also associated with these copper values. (see News Release dated October 6th, 2008). The Company cautions that the grab samples may not be representative of the grade of mineralization on the property.

New Staking. Adroit has continued its aggressive expansion policy in the Shining Tree area and has staked an additional 10 claim units, bringing its Red Vein property to 604 claim units, (9,664 ha).

Summer field season. Adroit has assembled a summer team of student geologists and experienced prospectors to expand the exploration of the Red Vein property through mapping, surface sampling, MMI sampling, till sampling, geophysics, and improving access through the construction of a network of trails.

The Red Vein property is located within the southern part of the Abitibi greenstone belt in the Shining Tree area of northern Ontario and is highly prospective for copper, zinc and gold. (See News Releases dated December 6th and 20th, 2010 for further reference).

The area has long been an area of intense interest, located in the heart of the exploration triangle of the three large Ontario mining camps of Timmins (80 km due North), Sudbury (150 km due South), and Kirkland Lake (75 km Northeast). There are 30 VMS deposits with over 200,000 tonnes of massive sulphides within 200 km of the Red Vein property, including Kidd Creek in Timmins with 147,880,000 tonnes grading 2.31% copper, 6.18% zinc and 87 g/t silver and the Horne, H&G Ore bodies in Noranda with 53,700,000 tonnes grading 2.2% copper and 6.10 g/t gold. There are numerous historical copper showings on the property and gold showings abound in the surrounding area. The property is located approximately 10 km north-west of the former Tyranite Gold Mine and 8 km south of the Sothman nickel deposit (see News Release dated October 6th, 2008).
