Forsys Announces Joly Zone Trenching Results
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 13, 2008) - Forsys Metals Corp. ("Forsys" or the "Company") (TSX:FYS) is pleased to announce initial assay results received from the Joly Zone surface trenching program completed in late 2007. The Joly Zone is located approximately 1.5 km north of the Company's Valencia uranium deposit ("Valencia") proposed main pit in Namibia, Africa where a feasibility study is underway. The results confirm uranium mineralization in Valencia-type alaskite variably intruded by biotite granite. This assemblage has been identified over a 1.5 km strike length and remains open in all directions.

Results have been received from 73 of the 89 trenches (refer to Appendix A) cut over favorable metamorphic bedrock with alaskite intrusive material identified during the recent mapping program (refer to the Company's press release dated January 29, 2008). The area is now being categorized into four new zones: the East Zone, East Central Zone, West Central Zone (location of Diamond drill holes J-001 to J-005 from 2007 exploration campaign) and the West Zone, which extends uranium mineralization from previous studies (refer to Figure 1).

To see Figure 1 please view the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/fys_fig1.pdf


The best intersections are as follows:

East Zone:                             East Central Zone:

JTR-001 with 11 m of 1.013 Kg/T        JTR-015 with 18 m of 0.166 Kg/T
JTR-002 with 14 m of 0.315 Kg/T        JTR-016 with 10 m of 0.244 Kg/T
JTR-007 with 13 m of 0.193 Kg/T        JTR-030 with 10 m of 0.175 Kg/T

West Central Zone:                     West Zone:

JTR-037 with 5 m of 0.274 Kg/T         JTR-072 with 14 m of 0.260 Kg/T
JTR-038 with 20 m of 1.282 Kg/T        JTR-073 with 16 m of 0.110 Kg/T
JTR-048 with 10 m of 0.165 Kg/T
 
Management is encouraged with the initial results which confirm the uranium mineralization grade continuity at the Joly Zone. The Joly Zone grades are similar to, and locally better than, those returned from alaskite bedrock in the Valencia ore body, itself a similar host to the ore found at Rio Tinto's producing Rossing Uranium Mine. Additional sampling will continue to test those areas that appear on the ground scintillometer image to be somewhat spotty and narrow. The Company will commence with a percussion drilling program at the Joly Zone, consisting of minimally 20 holes to be drilled to a depth of approximately 100 m in order to evaluate the subsurface continuity of uranium mineralization and to help the Company determine if any of the Joly Zone potential ore zones could be mined with the Valencia ore.

Dr. Roger Laine, Chief Geologist of Forsys, is the designated Qualified Person responsible for all of Forsys' exploration programs as well as the person responsible for the technical contents of this news release.

                 Table 1 - Joly Zone Trench Assay Results
 
GT (Grade Thickness Product) is calculated by multiplying grade by thickness (or width). The intersection is given for each trench with its associated grade. Each sample represents a one m channel which is approximately 5 cm wide by 5 cm deep over 1 m in length. The trench length is also noted.
