    *       Assay results received from a further 17 holes drilled at the A238 uranium prospect, Mauritania

    *       Significant intersections include:

        *       17m @ 325ppm U
        *       20m @ 215ppm U
        *       8m @ 356ppm U
        *       13m @ 456ppm U
        *       17m @ 245ppm U
        
    *        Drilling  results to be incorporated into a preliminary maiden JORC compliant resource estimate for A238,
             following completion of the follow-up drilling programme before the end of the field season
        
    *        Further RC drilling planned at high priority targets and at the previously discovered 'high grade shoot' 
             at A238.
        

International uranium company Forte Energy NL ("Forte Energy" or "the Company") (ASX: FTE, AIM: FTE) is  pleased  to
announce  the assay results from a further 17 holes from the completed Reverse Circulation ("RC") programme  on  the
A238 uranium prospect in northern Mauritania.

The  results  for a small number of RC holes planned within the programme are yet to be completed and  are  expected
imminently.

Forte  Energy  will  aim to calculate a preliminary maiden Inferred JORC compliant resource estimate  for  the  A238
uranium  prospect  using the RC assay results already received and following the completion  of  its  1500m  diamond
drilling programme.

Forte Energy has also remobilised an RC drill rig to initially perform a 7000m drilling programme on its other  high
priority targets, within the Company's exploration leases in Mauritania, and will carry out an additional 6-7000m of
infill  and  extension  drilling  on the A238 prospect where the high grade shoot was  previously  identified.  This
drilling  programme  is  designed to increase the size of the potential resource to  be  reported  as  well  as  the
confidence level, potentially allowing some Indicated Resources to be reported. The current exploration programme is
expected to be completed in Q2, 2011.
