Life Sciences Institute Inc. Announces Receipt of Licence Approvals for Four Drilling Locations in the Williston Basin of Southern Saskatchewan

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) - Life Sciences Institute Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LSN) (the "Company" or 'LSN") is pleased to report that the Company has received well license approvals for four prospective well locations determined from its previously completed exploration program in the south central region of Southern Saskatchewan's Williston Basin.

LSN currently holds a 100% working interest in 6,400 acres in Crown leases which were identified to be prospective for oil and gas with the primary targets being the Bird Bear and Bakken formations based on key geological observations, well log analysis and proprietary 2D seismic.

As previously disclosed on March 16, 2011, the Company has entered into an agency agreement with Wolverton Securities Ltd. in connection with a financing to be completed by way of a short form offering document (the "SFOD Financing"). The Company also continues to accept subscriptions for its previously announced flow-through financing (the "Flow-Through Financing, and together with the SFOD Financing, the "Financings"). As announced on January 26, 2011, the Financings must raise gross proceeds of at least $2,850,000. Upon the successful close of the Financings, the Company anticipates drilling a minimum of two exploratory wells in the 2nd quarter of 2011.

"The approved licenses are the last regulatory step towards the commencement of our drilling program," said Rob Thomas, President and CEO. "The approved licenses provide us the foundation to complete the scheduling of equipment for the Company's exploratory drilling in Saskatchewan."

The completion of the previously announced change of business, including the proposed name change to Quattro Exploration and Production Ltd. remains subject to TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") approval. The Company has until April 29, 2011 to complete the Financings, close the change of business and submit final materials to the Exchange. There is no assurance that such final documentation will be submitted and Exchange approval granted within that time period.
