Aldrin Commences Drilling at IND Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 4, 2011) - Aldrin Resource Corp. ("Aldrin") (TSX VENTURE:ALN) is pleased to announce that it has commenced diamond core drilling on its 100% owned IND project located 38 kilometres south of Dawson in the heart of the prolific Klondike mining district of the Yukon Territory. The 27 square kilometre property is proximal to numerous placer operations including the Indian River placers and 14 kilometres southwest of the famous Bonanza Creek and Eldorado Creek placers. The property is accessible by vehicle on good secondary roads.

The 2011 diamond drill program is testing the down-dip potential of three large mineralized structural zones identified. A minimum of 2,000-metres of drilling will be conducted. The drill program is expected to be completed in early September and assays will be announced as soon as practicable thereafter.

At least three holes will evaluate the east fractured system of IND which is at least 60-metres in length. The middle zone of IND, approximately 820-metres west of the east zone, has exposed structurally controlled mineralized rock in at least one 80-metre wide zone that is to be drilled in one or two places to test the continuity of mineralization in this area. The western mineralized zone, located 480-metres west of the middle zone, has several continuous anomalous zones which will be tested by at least three test drill holes.

Aldrin's disclosure of a technical or scientific nature in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Bert W. Jeffries, Aldrin's VP of Exploration and Development, who serves as a qualified person under the definition of National Instrument 43-101. The IND property represents an early stage exploration property and does not contain any mineral resources as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
