Fieldex completed 4250 metres at Laforce property - Intersects 0.82% nickel over 26m

Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, February 22nd, 2008. Fieldex Exploration Inc. (FLX :TSXV and F7E : Frankfurt ) is pleased to announce the results of the continuation of their 28-hole diamond drilling program started September 21st on its copper nickel 100% owned Laforce property (subject to 2-per-cent royalties to FNX Mining) located in northwestern Quebec.

The mineralization occurs in a brecciate chloritized pyroxenite containing 10 to 15 % sulphide with section up to 30 %. The sulphide is chalcopyrite, pyrrothite, pyrite and pentlandite. These sulphides appear in stringers around pyroxenite fragments, as coarse blebs in the breccias matrix and locally associated with sheared zone. From the first observation it looks like the mineralization is from tectonic origin.

"We anticipate that the current 90 km ground survey surrounding the Laforce deposit will produce multiple geophysical target and these targets will be tested in the next drilling program. »

Assay results from holes LF-07-24 to LF-07-35 are pending and will be released as soon as the entire set of sample results from these holes are completed.

The assaying technique used is the industry standard for base metal assaying, which uses nitric and hydrochloric acids that extracts nickel only from sulphide mineralization and not from nickel silicate minerals.

Quality control

Assay samples are taken from drill core sawed in half with one half sent to a commercial laboratory and other half retained for future reference.

Qualified person

The Temiscamingue projects are being supervised by Laurent Hallé P.Geo, the qualified person for these projects.
