Tournigan Energy Ltd.: Initial Metallurgical Testing at Tournigan´s Kursikova Project Indicates 90% Uranium Recovery

Vancouver, November 3, 2009—Tournigan Energy Ltd. (TVC: TSX-V; TGP: Frankfurt) has completed its initial phase of metallurgical testing for the Kuriskova uranium project in eastern Slovakia. The test program was conducted on drill core samples representative of the mineralization and was performed at the Resource Development, Inc. (RDI) laboratory facilities in Wheatridge, Colorado.

The test results indicate that over 90 percent of the uranium and molybdenum can be recovered by pressure oxidation using a whole ore leach process in an alkaline (carbonate) media at a grind size of P80 150 mesh. This process represents a conventional technology used in the US and other countries for the treatment of uranium ores. The predominant uranium minerals are uraninite and coffinite. Additional test work is planned during the ongoing prefeasibility study to optimize the process parameters.

Dr. Deepak Malhotra, Ph. D, president and principal of Resource Development, Inc., is an Independent Qualified Person under the standards of NI 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical disclosure contained in this news release.
