IGC ASSOCIATE, ATOMIC RESOURCES LIMITED, FINALIZES

COAL JV WITH TANZANIAN GOVERNMENT

VANCOUVER, Canada (TSXV: IGC; Frankfurt: I6G (WKN: A0HGX4 and OTC: IGCGF) – April 29, 2008 - IGC Resources Inc. ("IGC" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Atomic Resources Limited (ASX Code: ATQ "Atomic" an Australian listed company in which IGC holds 28.55%) has now signed a formal Joint Venture Agreement with the Tanzanian National Development Corporation ("NDC") to acquire 70% of the Mhukuru and Ngaka coal fields in southern Tanzania.

Although export coal will be a priority, the joint venture has the first right of refusal to supply all coal required to power generation projects as determined in a bankable feasibility study to be undertaken by Atomic, and that the price of coal in any such supply contracts shall be benchmarked against international coal prices.

Atomic is actively seeking a suitable drilling contractor to begin verification and validation drilling of the previous data with the express intention of updating and validating the information in the existing feasibility study, determining the potential viability of the proposed project, and to determine the work necessary for the proposed project to be taken to the bankable feasibility study stage within the six-month timeframe nominated in the agreement.

Based upon the detailed geological information provided by earlier studies including non-JORC compliant resource estimations and technical studies completed by the Colonial Development Corporation and the Taganyika Geological Survey in 1950s, the joint venture is seeking to develop a potential exploration target size of 100 million to 120 million tonnes of thermal coal suitable for power generation.

Note: The information in this release was taken from the Atomic Resources Limited release of April 21, 2008, which release complies with section 18 of the Australian Code for Reporting of Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves ("JORC code") and guidelines in stating a resource potential target based upon the geological information provided. There are no resources or reserves currently available for the project areas that satisfy the JORC Code or the Canadian National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") for reporting resources and reserves. The historic information provided is for reference only and the reader should not infer or assert that the information is correct, reliable, relevant or accurate and should not be relied upon.
