Tournigan Hits Uranium in Wyoming

Vancouver, January 15, 2007 - Tournigan Gold Corporation (TVC:TSX-V;
TGP: Frankfurt) has received positive results from its drilling on the
UT Claims located in the Great Divide Basin in Wyoming. Uranium
mineralization was encountered in 15 of the 49 rotary holes in its
6,692 meter first phase exploration drill programme. Highlights from
the gamma log radiometric readings include:

UT-008 with 0.076% eU308* over 3.1 metres (10 ft);
UT-020 with 0.050% eU308 over 3.4 metres (11 ft), and
UT-044 with 0.067% eU308 over 3.1 metres (10 ft).

(*eU308: radiometric equivalent of uranium content)

Detailed results are found in the table below. A map of the claims area
with drill locations can be found in Appendix A or by visiting .

"We are highly encouraged by the preliminary results from our UT
Claims," said Tournigan President, James Walchuck. "Our radiometric
readings were obtained from an area known to contain uranium
mineralization through historic drilling by Rocky Mountain Energy in
the 1970's and early 80's. Further exploration in this area is
definitely warranted."

Tournigan drilled the 49 holes on 122 metre (400 foot) centers.
Management believes the mineralized intercepts represent portions of at
least two shallow roll fronts1 which may be extractable by surface
mining or by in-situ recovery (ISR) methods. Additionally, Tournigan
drilled five core holes in order to twin holes containing the most
significant mineralization in the UT claims. Furthermore, step out
holes were also drilled along the southern continuation of the UT
mineralization, referred to as the CR trend, and are under analysis.

In late spring, Tournigan will begin a second phase drilling program
consisting of both infill and step out drill holes. The design of this
exploration program is underway utilizing the results from the first
phase of drilling.

The uranium grade referred to above is reported as equivalent uranium
(eU3O8) as determined by downhole radiometric logging equipment. This
method of determining the equivalent uranium grade is very common in
these types of deposits. Tournigan drilled an additional five
conventional core drill holes to twin five of the holes containing the
most significant results. These twin holes were drilled in order to
increase the accuracy of the disequilibrium coefficient - a
mathematical means of equating gamma log readings to % U3O8.

W. T. Cohan, P. Eng., Tournigan's consulting engineer, and the
Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed
and approved the technical disclosure contained herein.

Sweetwater acquisition and restated financial statements
The drill programme on the UT Claims was conducted through its option
agreement with Sweetwater River Resources LLC. Subsequent to the
release dated Oct 12, 2007, the Canada Revenue Agency ("CRA") has
notified Tournigan that the completion of Tournigan's acquisition of
Sweetwater River Resources LLC ("Sweetwater") will not prejudice
Tournigan's application for a favourable advance tax ruling in respect
of its proposed reorganization announced May 28, 2007. Tournigan and
Sweetwater have agreed to extend their acquisition agreement to
February 15, 2008.

(1) Roll Front Description

Roll front uranium deposits are formed in saturated permeable
sandstones. Groundwater flows through these host rocks carrying
dissolved uranium and other metals such as molybdenum, vanadium,
selenium, and arsenic. These metals precipitate out when the
groundwater flow crosses an oxidation/reduction interface in the
sandstone. This forms a crescent-shaped deposit known as a roll front.
