PHOENIX, May 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Energy Fields, Inc. (OTCBB:AEFI) today issued the following Letter to Shareholders from CEO Joshua Bleak.

Dear Shareholders,

Our thoughts are with those affected by the 9.0 earthquake in Sendai-Tohoku, north eastern Japan on March 11, and the tsunami that followed, and with the entire nation of Japan. These tragic events have impacted the lives of many individuals and the entire nation of Japan, and we wish the best for the people of Japan as they begin to rebuild. The ongoing crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in the aftermath of earthquake and tsunami has only worsened the intensity of the already tragic events. 

The result of this crisis has had a negative impact on the nuclear industry, and our company has been no exception. Although the aftermath of the situation in Japan will likely have a suppressing effect on the industry in the coming months, recent indications appear to be positive. Furthermore, in our analysis, the intensified scrutiny of the nuclear industry will likely lead to long-term improvement in technological advancement and safety of operations. Despite the short-term setbacks that the industry is facing, in the long term, we anticipate that uranium will remain at the forefront of meeting global energy needs.

At American Energy Fields, we believe that our long-term prospects are bright. Where others may remain dormant until public sentiment improves, we will advance opportunities to increase our foothold in the industry. As such, we are exploring a diverse range of opportunities in our continuing efforts to maximize shareholder value. The time is right to seek property acquisitions that will bolster our uranium holdings. Our exploration program will remain on track to evaluate both our near term mining opportunities as well as our large-scale exploration targets. Our strategy will continue to focus on the vital global need of providing clean, low cost energy to a growing population.

We thank you for your continuing support during these challenging times. In the coming weeks, we will release an update of our current activities and future plans to most effectively address the changes in the industry. Please contact us at any time to discuss our corporate strategy or any other issue.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Bleak
President, CEO
American Energy Fields, Inc.
