SYMBOL & EXCHANGE: FGE-V

MONTREAL, April 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Forest Gate Energy Inc. (TSXV: FGE) reports that it has completed its previously-announced private placement (see press release dated March 29, 2011) by issuing an aggregate of 4,015,909 units (the "Units") at an issue price of eleven cents ($0.11) per Unit to two accredited investors resident in Ontario and Quebec, for gross proceeds to Forest Gate of $441,750.

Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of Forest Gate issued on a "flow-through" basis with a deemed issue price per share of eleven cents ($0.11), and one common share purchase warrant entitling the holder to acquire one additional common share of Forest Gate at an exercise price of eighteen cents ($0.18) for a period of two years.

Part of the placement, namely 2,090,909 Units, was subscribed by one limited partnership associated with the MineralFields Group of Toronto, Ontario.

Forest Gate will use the proceeds from the issuance of the Units to explore its 100% owned Pershing Gold Property located near Val-d'Or, Québec.

As a result of this private placement, there are 59,281,064 common shares of Forest Gate issued and outstanding.

In connection with the closing of the private placement, Forest Gate paid a cash finder's fee of $11,500 to Limited Market Dealer Inc., representing 5% of the gross proceeds raised from the MineralFields Group.  Forest Gate also issued compensation options to Limited Market Dealer Inc. to purchase up to 209,090 units representing 10 % of the number of Units sold to the MineralFields Group in the private placement.  The compensation options are exercisable at a price of $0.11 per unit until April 11, 2013.  The units to be issued under the compensation options will have the same terms as the Units issued in the private placement, except that none of the shares will be "flow-through" shares.

All of the securities issued in connection with the private placement are subject to a four month hold period expiring on August 12, 2011.
