Drilling and Exploration Progress on Adroit Resources Inc.'s Red Vein Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 8, 2011) - Adroit Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADT)(FRANKFURT:A7V)(BERLIN:A7V) Drilling and Exploration Progress. Management is pleased to announce that the Grassy Lake drilling programme is now 25% completed (see Company's January 31, 2011 news release) and exploration has commenced on the Little Pigeon Lake portion of a 2.3 Km long quartz copper vein (see Company's May 10, 2010 news release).

Drilling Progress – Grassy Lake. The 3,000 meter diamond drilling program on the Grassy Lake portion of the Red Vein property is now 25% completed. The Laframboise Drilling Inc. drill has completed three drill holes into combined MMI/IP targets on Zone B of the Grassy Lake portion of the Red Vein Property. Concurrently, the Levert Drilling Ltd drill is continuing to drill their third diamond drill hole on combined MMI/IP targets on Zone A of the Grassy Lake portion of the Red Vein Property.

The Company is continuing to drill Zones A and F with the Levert drill as planned and zones B and C with the Laframboise drill. Following success on Zones A, B, C and F, the Company plans to drill Zones D and E.

Exploration Progress – Little Pigeon Lake. A grid-cutting crew has arrived at the Little Pigeon Lake portion of the Red Vein property and has commenced cutting an 8.5 km grid across two main copper/quartz showings on the south-western edge of Little Pigeon Lake. The two surface showings have provided selected 'grab' samp le results of 10.4% and 4.7% Cu respectively and were fire assayed by Accurassay Laboratories, Thunder Bay, Ontario. The three grid lines are being prepared for a Mag/VLF survey which will test the lines and the entire length of the lake. A 'deep' dipole IP crew from Larder Lake Geo physics, is contracted to arrive on site next week to perform their IP survey, designed to identify geophysical targets up to 400 meters below surface.

Little Pigeon Lake is about 6 Km south-east of where the Grassy Lake drilling is taking place and on one the western end of a east/west trending quartz vein varying in width between 0.8 and 5.0m and has been discontinuously recognized over a 2.3km 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, Thunder Bay, Ontario. Anomalous gold values are also associated with these copper values. (see Company's October 6th, 2008 news release). The Company cautions that the grab samples may not be representative of the grade of mineralization on the property.

The Red Vein 5,936 Ha 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. The Company's news releases dated December 6 and 20, 2010 refer.

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 over 200,000 tonnes of massive sulphides within 200Km of the Red Vein property including Kidd Creek in Timmins of 147,880,000 tonnes grading at 2.31% copper, 6.18% zinc and 87 g/t silver and the Horne, H&G Orebodies in Noranda of 53,700,000 tonnes grading at 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 south-east of the former Tyranite Gold Mine and 8 km south of the Sothman nickel deposit (see News Release of October 6, 2008).
