Force Energy Corp. Extends Zoro 1 Lithium Property Option

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - May 18, 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 it has extended its option on the Zoro 1 property in the Snow Lake area of Manitoba, Canada.

The Zoro 1 property hosts a near-surface deposit of Lithium-bearing pegmatite mineralization that extends over significant distances in one main dyke exposed by multiple trenches and in several localities elsewhere on the property. Also the property has historically shown the existence of high grade rare earths, throughout the property.

The Zoro 1 property is 52 hectares in area and is located near the East Shore of Wekusko Lake in west-central Manitoba, Canada. The Company is currently in the initial stages of the Phase One exploration program. The objectives of the exploration program are to summarize the geology, historic ore reserves, and economic potential of dykes delineated on the property.

A historic reserve estimate for Li2O has been calculated on limited drilling on a single dyke on the Zoro 1 property. Drilling indicated reserves coupled with data from trenching have been calculated with a total undiluted tonnage given as 1,727,550 at 0.945% Li2O. There are seven zoned pegmatite dykes. The main, most westerly dyke is 4.5 to 6 m high, 27 m wide and 183 m long. The deposits are of significant merit but will require further exploration and work.

"We are encouraged by the prospects of the Zoro 1 property and we are pleased to extend our leasehold on the property," says Tim DeHerrera, President and CEO of Force. "The extension on the property gives us the opportunity to further evaluate the full potential of the Zoro 1 property. We believe that Lithium will become increasingly important as demand for Lithium batteries continues to rise. Also the existence of Rare Earths on our property brings the potential to increase value for shareholders. We look forward to further exploring the Zoro 1 property."

More information regarding the Zoro 1 property will become available upon further exploration and analysis of the property. The option has been extended until June 15, 2012.
