    SYMBOL & EXCHANGE: FGT-V

    MONTREAL, July 4 /CNW Telbec/ - Forest Gate Resources Inc. (the
"Company") reports that, in accordance with the Joint Operating Agreement
("JOA") dated June 29, 2007, it has been issued a Notice of Default from the
Operator for its failure to pay its June 3, 2008 cash call within a specified
period of time.
    "We have informed our consortium partners that we will continue to try to
fund our share of this year's program through the sixty day default period,"
said Michael Judson, President and CEO of Forest Gate. "We continue to believe
that institutional oil investors will yet return to the market."
    Under the terms of the JOA, Forest Gate has sixty days from the notice
date of July 3, 2008 to remedy the default by paying the full amount of the
outstanding balance to the Operator. In the event that the default continues
for more than sixty days, Forest Gate will forfeit its interest in the Celtic
Sea project.
    A new video from Michael Judson, President and CEO of Forest Gate
Resources, will be available for viewing on the company's website
(www.forestgate.ca) on Monday, July 7.
