one additional common share in the share capital of the Corporation at
an issue price of $0.18 per share for a period of two years. The Units will be issued pursuant

securities laws and the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange.
It is anticipated that this financing will be completed on or prior to
close of business on May 16, 2011. This financing is subject to the
usual regulatory approvals.
The proceeds will primarily be used to incur eligible expenditures on
Forest Gate's oil and gas properties situated in Canada.
The Corporation has also issued a total of 5,405,400 common shares to
Jones, Gable & Company Limited in order to pay the principal amount of
$675,675 owing under a convertible debenture that the Corporation
issued in January 2010. The shares were issued at the conversion price
provided for in the convertible debenture, namely $0.125 per share.
The Corporation expects to issue, subject to the prior acceptance of
the TSX Venture Exchange, up to an additional 712,000 common shares at
an issue price of $0.125 per share in order to pay a portion of the
accrued and unpaid interest on the foregoing debenture.
