Tournigan Geotechnical Drilling Hits Uranium Mineralization At Much Higher Grade Than Expected At Kuriskova

Tournigan Energy Ltd. (TVC: TSX-V; TGP: Frankfurt) (Pink Sheets: TVCFF) announced today the results of downhole radiometric logging of a geotechnical drill hole in the central part of the high grade Kuriskova Uranium deposit in Slovakia. This hole was drilled to collect geotechnical information as part of the ongoing prefeasibility study being performed by Tetra Tech, Inc. which is expected to be completed before the end of this year.

Highlights of the results from this drill hole (LE-K-70-G) are:

  • An intercept of 3.0 metres (393.2m to 396.2 m) at 0.239 % eU3O8, including 0.6 metres at 0.765% eU 3O 8;
  • An additional intercept of 1.2 metres (397.5 m to 398.7m) at 1.168 % eU 3O 8 including 0.6 meters at 2.038 % eU 3O 8; and
  • This hole was drilled into a zone of the deposit with a modeled grade of 0.056% U 3O 8 and thus intersected considerably higher than expected grade in this part of the deposit.

As planned, Drill Hole LE-K-70-G intersected the central portion of the Indicated Resource which comprises Kuriskova’s Main Zone North at a depth of about 390 metres. Based on the most recent Kuriskova resource estimate (April 2011), the modeled grade in this part of the Kuriskova deposit was 0.056% U 3O 8. This new drill intersection thus represents a significant improvement over expected grade in this part of the deposit. The April 2011 resource estimate by Tetra Tech comprises an Indicated Resource of 28.5 million pounds U 3O 8 grading 0.555% U 3O 8 contained in 2.3 million tonnes and an additional Inferred Resource of 12.7 million pounds U 3O 8 grading 0.185% U 3O 8 contained in 3.1 million tonnes, at a cut-off of 0.05%U (see news release dated April 26, 2011).

Uranium grades presented in this news release are reported as equivalent uranium oxide (eU 3O 8 %) based on downhole radiometric logging. The logging was performed by Koral, s.r.o. of Slovakia. Drill core samples are being submitted to the Laboratory of the Geological Survey in Slovakia (SGUDS) and ALS Chemex in Seville, Spain for chemical assay. Drill intercepts are reported as drilled; true thicknesses have not yet been calculated. Quality Control and Quality Assurance is provided by Ravi Sharma, Tournigan's Manager, Resources and Reserves, who is a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical disclosure contained in this news release.
