Question Dropped a nut in cam chain chamber!!!

I was doing the valve clearance check & adjustment on my ninja ex250 today. When i was doing intake valve adjustment, Found the adjusting screw was not moving! after many attempts....the edges of lock nut got damaged...somehow i was able to remove it from the cam...but while i was taking it out it dropped in the cam chain box (Chamber! - sorry I'm not sure what it called!!).
I am going to buy a magnetic-bit screw driver to find the nut in cam chain box! Is there any better way to get the nut out?
The 2nd question is: Since the valve clearance adjusting screw is not turning for the one of intake valve...What is best way to get this one done? (I already tried with bigger screw-driver but no luck and I don't want to damage the head of the screw).

Please help.
Thanks in advance!

if you can see the nut then a stick magnet will work perfectly. Not experienced enough to answer your second question, sorry bro lol. Here's what a stick magnet looks like and you should be able to get it at any local hardware store for $2-$3 USD

Thanks Tadster,
Unfortunately i was putting a new nut and it was made of steels!
The nut is made of steels and the magnet is not working on it!
I tried to use clow grabby tools but no success, Also tried hanger wire with no success.
If i remove the clutch cover that would help?
I can see the nut is stuck between cam chain and the crank-case wall.
If i remove the cam shaft and move the cam chain on side would help?
Please let me know if any one done this successfully.

Thanks in advance!

I would think removing the clutch cover should work. Honestly, take anything off you need as long as you're sure you can get it back on lol.

Thank you all!
Finally, I did it!
I removed the cam shaft & Cam chain tensioner and moved the chain on side than used the cloth hanger wire to pull the nut out of the cam chain well.
Tomorrow I am going to do cam timing adjustment and hopefully it works out good.
Thanks again,
