Adroit to Pursue Italian Antimony Development

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 13, 2007) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FRANKFURT:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) is pleased to report that it is increasing its efforts in the search for and development of antimony resources on its tenements in Central Italy. While gold exploration will proceed according to the initial schedule, more funds and efforts will be allocated to the development of antimony resources. This redeployment is in direct response to numerous expressions of interest that the Company has received for antimony products.

Antimony (symbol: Sb) is often used as a hardener for lead storage batteries. Flame retardant applications include such markets as children's clothing, toys, aircraft and automobile seat covers. It is also used in paints, ceramics, enamels and a wide variety of alloys, electronics and rubber. Increasingly, it is being used in the semi-conductor industry in the production of diodes and infra-red detectors. Demand has remained relatively constant in recent years, and few substitutes exist for antimony. While prices are not quoted daily, as of the 28th May, 2007, The Northern Miner reported the price at US$5,360.00 per tonne.

Central Italy was, by world standards, a major antimony producer up until the 1980's. Nearly 1 Million metric tonnes were extracted from the area, primarily in open pit mines, but also from underground operations. The area continues to host a number of known small to medium size deposits which remain unmined.

The Company currently owns the exploration rights on nine permits in Central Italy and has filed applications for another seven properties. Amongst the nine permits granted, two host former producing mines, namely Le Cetine Mine where 2,000 metric tonnes of Sb metal was produced from high-grade ore (greater than 5% Sb), and the Porggio Pietricci permit, which hosts the former Macchia Casella Mine, reported to have produced 12,621 metric tonnes @ 10.9% Sb from both open pit and underground. Of the seven permits currently under application, five host former Sb mines with known antimony historic resources. In fact, despite historic production, several new occurrences or extensions to mined deposits were identified in the late 1980's and never developed, as production was winding down due to decreased prices. On the basis of historical data, the total higher grade antimony located within the Company's permits exceeds 1 million metric tonnes at an average grade of 1.8%. The outlined mineralization remains open in several directions. The main resources are:

- Faggio Scritto: 470,000 metric tonnes @ 1.5% Sb plus 2,600,000 metric tonnes @ 0.61% Sb; (according to former local mining company SAMIM identified by 57 holes drilled in 1983);

- Tafone Sud and Montauto : 100,000 metric tonnes @ 1.7% Sb (according to SAMIM; over 420,000 metric tonnes @ approximately 2% Sb (according to Mining Italiana - 1983 recalculation of the resources on the basis of the same SAMIM data, using a 1% Sb cut-off grade);

- Poggio Monticcio: 155,000 metric tonnes @ 2% Sb (SAMIM);

- I Salaioli: 35,000 metric tonnes @ 2% Sb (SAMIM).

It is important to note that the presence of antimony and gold in a hydrothermal system, is quite common and that the former is regarded as a "pathfinder mineral" in the search for the latter.

Gold Exploration

Management is pleased to report that drilling is continuing at the Poggio Fogari gold project in Central Italy. The programme aims at testing a mineralized fault and an 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 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 0.25 g/mt with peaks of 2.8 and 3.5 g/mt Au. Systematic soil sampling by Adroit confirmed the presence of gold mineralization along the fault structure.

The Poggio Fogari property was increased in size from 749 ha to 1,100 ha by the addition of the 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 had 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.

Assays and Grades Explained

Following investor requests, the Company provides the following relevant notes to assist investors to appreciate the nature and impact of the above assay results and grades in accordance with Good Disclosure Practices Under National Instrument 43-101.

Samples are assayed to indicate the amount of metal contained in the sample and expressed as a percentage or grams per short ton. This does not imply that the sample weighed a short ton, only that if it were a short ton, it would contain the percentage or grams indicated by the assay.

A short ton contains 2,000 pounds. If the assay result states 1% Antimony then the amount of metal indicated would be 20 pounds. Where results are reported in metric tonnes (mt), the tonne contains 2,205 pounds.

Nota Bene: The indicated metal is before recovery rates which will be lower. Nor does any calculation of value make any allowance for extraction costs.

Market Rates. As at 1937 hrs Central European Time, June 13, 2007, the rounded to two decimal places Live Spot Gold bid price was as follows:

Gold - 648.80 per troy ounce giving 20.86 USD per gram (1 troy ounce equals 31.1 grams)

Antimony (Sb) price is not quoted daily. As of the 28th May, 2007, The Northern Miner reported the price at US$5,360.00 per tonne.

Litigation Ended to Adroit's Benefit:

Action Relating to Jolin Group Claims Decided in Adroit's Favour

In July, 2005, the Jolin Group initiated proceedings against the Company before the Mining Commissioner of Ontario seeking preservation of Net Smelter Royalty interests on certain mining claims in the Larder Lake and Sudbury Mining Division of Ontario, which had lapsed and had been subsequently staked by the Company. Subsequently, the proceedings were expanded to include further properties optioned from the Jolin Group and associated parties.

The Company brought an application to have the matter heard before the Ontario Superior Court. In November, 2006, a judgment was handed down in Adroit's favour. On June 1, 2006, the Company obtained an Order from the Court that declared, inter alia, that all claims that were raised or could have been raised by The Jolin Group (the Plaintiffs) in the said Mining and Lands Commissioner proceedings are null and unenforceable. It was further ordered that the Plaintiffs are estopped from bringing any proceedings against Adroit Resources Inc. to enforce any claim that was raised or could have been raised in the Mining Lands Commissioner proceedings, including any claim to or interest in, the mining claims.

Company President, Graeme Rowland, noted that: "While the mining claims in question may not be critical to the future growth and development of the Company, it was important to have the allegations addressed, the facts understood, and the matter resolved. Management is pleased that this matter is now closed."

Warrant Expiry Extension's:

Management is pleased to announce that the TSX Venture Exchange has accepted a filing by the Company seeking to amend the expiry date of the 518,250 warrants issued pursuant to a private placement announced July 24th, 2006, at an exercise price of $0.50 and due to expire on August 10, 2007. These warrants will now expire on August 10, 2008.

President's Comments. Graeme Rowland, President, said; "While I am looking forward to the results of our drilling on Poggio Fogari, I am pleased that we have the potential to mine Antimony. The Antimony could well produce an excellent positive cash flow in the not too distant future."

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 30,724,815 common shares.
