Adroit Resources Stakes 17 Claims (246 Units) to Their Red Vein Property, Larder Lake Break, Timmins South Mining Camp, Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 17, 2012) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FRANKFURT:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) stakes 17 claims (246 units) to their Red Vein Property, Larder Lake Break, Timmins South Mining Camp, Ontario.

Management is pleased to announce the acquisition of seventeen claims (246 claim units) located in Raymond and Mond Townships. The new claims cover an area of 3,936 hectares and expand the extensive Red Vein property to 92 claims (1,191 claim units) for a total area of 19,056 hectares. The property now covers parts of Burrows, Kelvin, Kemp, Natal, Sothman, Raymond and Mond Townships in the Timmins South mining camp.

The new claims are of particular significance to the Company's exploration efforts as they represent the acquisition of a larger portion of the Larder Lake Break on the northeastern segment of the property. This deformation zone hosts very significant amounts of gold mineralization, including the mines at Kirkland Lake, where 37.3 million oz. of gold from 25 mines were mined from 100 million tonnes at a recovered grade of 12.74 g/t. The camp ranks second in Canada, next only to Timmins, with respect to total ounces of gold produced.

Adroit Resources Red Vein property is bounded in the north in Sothman township, by the Xstrata Sothman nickel deposit and by the SGX Resources Edelston property (for a map, please go to Adroit's homepage, Recent (February 23, 2012 SGX Resources Press Release) exploration on the Edelston property intersected 65 m of 1.82 g/t gold hosted within a silicified and sheared ultramafic volcanic rock with 3-5% pyrite, rare chalcopyrite and visible gold. This zone has now been traced for 900 m in a northeast-southwest trend and is the focus of an active drill program. The Red Vein Property also extends southwards into the Shining Tree Camp, which was the focus of Adroit's recent drilling program at the Little Pigeon Lake part of the property. Mineral Mountain's Shining Tree property is contiguous to Adroit and the recent discovery at the Cook Zone which intersected 5.03 g/t Au over 8.5m, 21.41 g/t Au over 3.0m, 11.9 g/t Au over 5.5m (November 9, 2011 Mineral Mountain Resources Press Release). The Cook Zone is approximately 7km from the Red Vein Property.

Adroit Resources President, Graeme Rowland, states, "We are pleased with the acquisition of additional ground along the historic Larder Lake Break that provides us with high-potential gold exploration opportunities. Adroit views the location of the Red Vein property as significant given its position adjacent to SGX Resources (SXR) Timmins South Edelston property. An assessment of the impact of this new discovery and the possible relationship to the Company's ground is currently underway."

The Red Vein property is part of the Company's growing property portfolio in this under explored area of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Ontario. It is situated in the heart of a highly productive mining triangle between the established centers of Timmins, Sudbury and Kirkland Lake, where more than 170 million ounces of gold and 200 million tons of base metals have been mined.
