Forsys Expands Uranium Zones at Valencia
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - Forsys Metals Corp. (TSX:FSY) (FRANKFURT:F2T) (NSX:FSY) ("Forsys" or the "Company") is pleased to report the initial percussion drilling results from the 10,000 m percussion drilling programme at the Company's 100% owned Valencia Uranium deposit ("Valencia") in Namibia, Africa. As described in the Company's news release dated January 14, 2008, this programme is designed to expand the Valencia resource to the North, South and East as well as below the proposed Main Zone pit floor. Historically few drill holes have been completed below a 200-250 m depth in these areas.

The first 3,850 m of the percussion drilling campaign comprised ten (10) vertical holes located south and west of the Valencia Main Zone with one hole located within the Transition Zone (refer to Figure 1).

Results demonstrate the following:

- Uranium mineralization encountered from surface to drill hole bottom (350 m) potentially increasing the uranium resource south of the current Valencia deposit

- Ten drill holes terminated in uranium mineralization of varying grades, some higher than the June 2007 reserve estimate (Forsys Metals Corp; Valencia Project, Namibia - Technical Report, Snowden Mining Industry Consultants Pty Ltd). These results confirm the potential for depth extension.

To view "Figure 1 - Schematic Plan View of Pit Surface; view of some Diamond drill holes and percussion holes" and "Figure 2- NE-SW Schematic Longitudinal Section of Proposed Valencia Pit Looking North", please visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/429fsy_figures1and2.pdf.

Selected results of the drilling South of the Main Zone including holes with grades higher than the current Valencia reserve grade of 0.120 Kg/T are shown in the table below (refer to the Company's website at http://www.forsysmetals.com for full results).

Table 1 - Selected drilling highlights from the first 3,850 m of the ongoing
          10,000 m drilling programme

(1) The results in this news release are reported as equivalent ppm U3O8.
    The Company has calculated a correlation between grade thickness product
    of gamma counts (counts per second) collected by down hole geophysical
    methods and the grade thickness product of chemical assays from Forsys'
    drill hole library (otherwise known as GT Chem and GT Rad). That
    correlation has been established with over 100 GT intervals and is used
    to calculate eU3O8 in the percussion drill holes from gamma probe
    survey with a resulting correlation coefficient of 0.99 (estimation of
    confidence level).
 
The remaining 6,150 m of the programme is progressing well with a second drill rig being added; results of the Company's findings are forthcoming.

Duane Parnham, the Company's President & CEO, commented: "Management is encouraged with the initial results of the percussion drilling program and its potential to add substantially to Valencia's resources and reserves".

Dr. Roger Laine, Ph.D., P.Geo, Chief Geologist of Forsys, is the designated Qualified Person responsible for all of Forsys' exploration programmes as well as the person responsible for the contents of this news release. Dr. Laine has extensive experience as a geological engineer with a Ph.D in geosciences specializing in exploration, development, geostatistics and reserve estimating. He has over 30 years of uranium exploration experience of which 14 years were spent at Areva (formerly known as Cogema).
