Force Energy Corp. Exploration Program Underway

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2011) - Force Energy Corp. (OTCBB: FORC) (FRANKFURT: FC2) (hereafter "Force," "the Company"), a junior Lithium and Rare Earths mineral exploration company, is pleased to announce that Phase One of the Zoro 1 property exploration program is underway.

The Zoro 1 property is located east of the mining centre of Snow Lake, west-central Manitoba, Canada, where mining and exploration has been ongoing for decades. The exploration team, led by Dr. Mark Fedikow, P.Geo., will consist initially of a two-man prospecting crew mobilizing to the site from Winnipeg, MB. Force Energy's exploration program was delayed due to above-average snow melt which caused heavy flooding and extreme conditions, inhibiting access to the property. The prospecting crew has now been mobilized and will access the property via helicopter on a daily basis, operating from a base in Snow Lake.

The target for exploration is a pegmatite-hosted deposit of Lithium-bearing mineralization that is exposed at surface. This mineralization can be traced over significant distances in one main dyke exposed by multiple trenches. Several other dykes are present on the property but to date have received very little exploration. The property has also shown potential for the existence of high grade Rare Earth elements, which the Company believes adds significantly to the prospectivity of the property.

Initial steps of the exploration program will include locating the additional trenches on the property, producing a geologic map of each and then cleaning and preparing the exposed pegmatite for sampling. Samples will be a combination of composite chips and channel samples collected with the use of a rock saw. The samples will be sent for assay to confirm historical lithium assays and to assess the pegmatite for rare metals, Rare Earth elements and gold.

Force Energy Corp. has raised over $250,000 during the past six months and will use the proceeds of the financings to fund ongoing exploration programs on the Zoro 1 property. To date, approximately $50,000USD has been advanced for Phase One of the exploration program.
