Force Energy Begins Lithium and Rare Earth Minerals Exploration Program

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - Apr 11, 2011) - Force Energy Corp. (OTCBB: FORC) (FRANKFURT: FC2) (hereafter "Force", the "Company") today announced plans to commence a two-phase exploration program on the Zoro 1 property in the Snow Lake area of west-central Manitoba, Canada.

The Zoro property hosts seven rare metal spodumene-bearing pegmatite dykes, six of which have received only cursory exploration. The main mass of spodumene discovered to date is exposed in a single pegmatite dyke exposed by seven trenches. Mineralization in this dyke has not been fully delineated and a recommended exploration program will assess the potential for more spodumene zones. The geological characteristics of the remaining dykes on the property will be determined by detailed mapping and trenching followed by assay. Rare earth and precious metal contents in the pegmatite dykes, not considered during historic exploration, will also be assessed in this program.

A historic reserve estimate for Li2O has been based on limited drilling from a single dyke on the Zoro 1 property. Drill indicated spodumene reserves coupled with data from trenching have been calculated to give a total undiluted tonnage given of 1,727,550 tons at 0.945% Li2O. These results give significant encouragement to Force Energy Corp. for exploration on the property and potential future development.

The exploration program will consist of detailed geological mapping, trench rehabilitation, new sampling from the trenches, diamond drilling and a thorough assay/analytical approach, accompanied by a quality assurance and quality control program. The program will be spearheaded by Dr. Mark Fedikow Ph.D. P.Eng. P.Geo. C.P.G.

"We are extremely excited to begin our initial exploration program on the recently-acquired Zoro 1 property," says Mr. Tim DeHerrera, president of Force Energy Corp. "The results of these initial programs will drive our corporate goals as we move forward with our new business focus of exploring and developing viable lithium and rare earth element prospects. We believe this sector offers junior exploration companies like Force excellent prospects and we are eager to continue to build shareholder value by proving up our potential reserves."

Phase One Exploration Program:
Phase One of the exploration program will consist of geologic mapping, channel sampling and assaying of the seven pegmatite dykes in order to confirm historic assay results and to determine the grade and extent of spodumene mineralization in all trenched zones. This program will proceed subsequent to planned trench rehabilitation on all trenches except the main trench where a historic grade and tonnage has been determined. Detailed geologic mapping of all trenches and the remainder of the Zoro 1 property will include tying in the locations of historic drill collars in relation to trench locations and determining the controls to the emplacement of the dykes. This will enable the Company to place the mineralized zones into geologic context and provide vectors to additional pegmatite targets and create a framework for additional exploration. Channel sampling will be undertaken to confirm historic assay results from historic trenches and determine areas of interest in advance of the Phase Two drilling program.

Phase Two will involve a 6561 foot (2,000 metre) drill program targeting key areas of interest on the property. The Company will provide details of the Phase Two program upon completion of Phase One of the exploration program.

Forward looking statements are generally, but not always, identified by the words "expects," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "intends," "estimates," "projects," "aims," "potential," "goal," "objective," "prospective," and similar expressions or that events or conditions "will," "would," "may," "can," "could" or "should" occur. Information concerning oil or natural gas reserve estimates may also be deemed to be forward looking statements, as it constitutes a prediction of what might be found to be present when and if a project is actually developed.

Actual results may differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors beyond the reasonable control of the Company. It is important to note that actual outcomes and the Company's actual results could differ materially from those in such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include misinterpretation of data, inaccurate estimates of oil and natural gas reserves, the uncertainty of the requirements demanded by environmental agencies, the Company's ability to raise financing for operations, breach by parties with whom we have contracted, inability to maintain qualified employees or consultants because of compensation or other issues, competition for equipment, inability to obtain drilling permits, potential delays or obstacles in drilling operations and interpreting data, the likelihood that no commercial quantities of oil or gas are found or recoverable, and our ability to participate in the exploration of, and successful completion of development programs on all aforementioned prospects and leases.
