Adroit Updates Red Vein Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) Property Grassy Lake Programmes

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 30, 2011) -Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FRANKFURT:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V). Management is pleased to announce the receipt of a Mobile Metal Ions (MMI-M) Process Soil Geochemical Survey report on the Grassy Lake portion of the Red Vein Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) property and the receipt of assay results for 1,472 of its 1,535 samples from its winter diamond drill programme. The 9,664 ha 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).

President's Comments: 'I am very pleased with the contents of the MMI Report. The report strengthens management's belief that this property will yield a valuable commercial discovery. We have multiple targets for Copper, Lead and Zinc plus Copper/Gold and Copper/Palladium. The detection of a geochemical signature for Platinum Group Mineralization has certainly come as an exciting surprise. I am looking forward to the next drill programme with great interest.'

The MMI-M Report dated May 19, 2011 was prepared by Mount Morgan Resources Ltd. of Winnipeg, Manitoba. The executive summary is reproduced below.

"The Red Vein MMI-M soil geochemical survey has successfully demonstrated that MMI-M partial extractions on soil samples collected from variable depths can isolate MMI-M precious and base metal anomalies. Although the sampling depths were variable and the B-Horizon was targeted as the preferred sample media potentially important geochemical responses are present on the grid. Data integration and field checking of the anomalous areas will assist in determining follow-up targets.

There are two main types of commodity element responses on the grid. Generally, these anomalies have the same element associations but variable magnitudes of response. They include the group: (i) Cu, Pb and Zn; and (ii) Cu-Pd/Cu-Au. The Cu-Pd and Cu-Au anomalies are distinct and provide focused responses for further exploration. The presence of a multi-sample Pd anomaly on the property is a unique feature. The mobility of Pd in the secondary or surficial environment is very low and as such any anomaly defined by an MMI-M survey should be carefully field-checked to determine whether a geological depositional environment favorable for platinum group mineralization is present. There are a large number of multi-element Cu and Zn anomalies on the property however the property is marked by graphitic argillite or graphite-rich sedimentary rocks. Accordingly, zinc-rich MMI-M anomalies associated with these lithologies are interpreted as unattractive follow-up exploration targets. The remainder of the anomalies should be assessed separately.

Recommendations in the MMI-M report include a Phase Two sampling programme be undertaken with a significant component of vertical profile sampling. The Phase Two programme would attempt to establish the difference in MMI geochemical signatures between graphitic sedimentary rocks and non-graphitic targets. The transects should be sampled at approximately 20 m spacing with subsequent analysis by MMI-M. Comparisons between these new data and the previous dataset will determine the validity of the Phase 1 through Phase 3 sampling programmes."

The MMI-M report was written by Mark Fedikow Ph.D. P.Eng. P. Geo. C.P.G. Mark is a native of Windsor, Ontario where he graduated with an Honours B.Sc. in Geology and a M.Sc. in geophysics and geochemistry. Subsequently he received a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Scholarship and completed a Ph.D. in Exploration Geochemistry at the School of Applied Geology, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. Mark has worked for a variety of junior and major mining exploration companies and for the Manitoba Geological Survey as Chief Geologist of the Mineral Deposits Section. In 2001 he received the Provincial Geologists gold medal, a Canadian national award for excellence in the geosciences.

He currently consults to the mineral exploration industry and is registered as P.Eng. and P.Geo. with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Manitoba and as a Certified Professional Geologist (C.P.G.) with the American Institute of Professional Geologists, Westminster, Colorado, U.S.A.

Winter Drill Programme Update. Based on assay results received to date, the preliminary results confirm the presence of a VMS system on the property. Coupled with valuable geological data from our initial drill programme Adroit has significantly improved its understanding of the controlling structures, stratigraphy and potential for a valuable commercial discovery.

All 12 of the diamond drill holes of the 2010-11 winter drill program consistently intersected numerous sizable mineralized zones. The Company's February 28th, 2011 news release announced a 185 m section of massive sulphide mineralization with anomalous values for zinc and copper; but no significant economic values for zinc or copper were encountered over any discernable intersections.

Work Progress. Additional MMI sampling is currently underway as per the recommendations in the MMI report. The initial batch of new samples has been submitted to SGS Mineral Services (Toronto, Ontario) for analysis. These results will be incorporated, with all of the existing geological data, to provide targets for the next drill programme. Mount Morgan Resources has been engaged to write the recommended integrated report and drilling is scheduled to resume after receipt of the report.

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 sulphide-type mineralization 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).
