Kuriskova Infill Drilling Returns More High Grade Uranium

Vancouver, February 21, 2008 - Tournigan Gold Corporation (TVC:TSX-V;
TGP: Frankfurt) today reported results from its 10,129 metre, 30-hole,
2007 infill drilling program at the Kuriskova uranium deposit in
Eastern Slovakia. The company continues to intercept significant
thicknesses and uranium grades on the deposit.

Highlights include:KG-J-19A with 8.9 metres of 0.411 %eU308
KG-J-21A with 8.4 metres of 0.762 %eU308
KG-J-21D with 5.5 metres of 0.509 %eU308
KG-J-24B with 2.4 metres of 0.649 %eU308
KG-J-25A with 5.7 metres of 0.525 %eU308
KG-J-28B with 4.2 metres of 0.593 %eU308

More details of the 30 hole program are listed below.

"This drill campaign has raised our level of confidence and
understanding of the deposit," said Tournigan President, James
Walchuck. "The 2007 work was primarily infill drilling and the results
have confirmed the geological and mineralization continuity of the main
zone and hanging wall zone. These results are in line with previous
drilling and support our belief that Kuriskova is a word-class

The drill results reported below are from 30 infill and exploratory
drill holes the company drilled during 2007. Five of the holes did not
encounter mineralization yet provided valuable geological and
structural information for the project; two of the holes were lost and
one is being continued in the next phase of the program.

Tournigan has 1,938 core samples at the SGS Group labs in Toronto
awaiting chemical analysis. Another 402 samples are ready for dispatch
from the project site.

The uranium grades referred to above are reported as equivalent uranium
(eU3O8) as determined by downhole radiometric logging equipment. The
logging was performed by Koral, s.r.o. of Slovakia. Quality control and
quality assurance is being provided by Ravi Sharma, Tournigan's Manager
Resources and Reserves.

In December 2007, ACA Howe provided an NI 43-101 resource estimate of
the Kuriskova deposit that reported an inferred resource of 36.3
million pounds U308 at an average grade of 0.323% contained in 5.1
million tonnes at a cut-off grade of 0.035% U3O8. In the high grade
main zone the estimate identified 30.9 million pounds U308 at an
average grade of 0.421% contained in 3.3 million tonnes. The resource
estimate included results from 10 of 13 Diamond drill holes drilled by
Tournigan at the Kuriskova deposit in 2006, three Diamond holes drilled
by Tournigan in late 2005, and 13 relevant holes of the 52 historical
Diamond drill holes drilled by previous government operators. The hole
spacing for the inferred resource ranged between 40 to 150 metre

The chemical assays from the 2007 program will be used for a new NI
43-101 resource estimate expected mid-2008. Tournigan anticipates the
next estimate will upgrade a significant portion of the deposit to the
indicated resource classification. Tournigan also continues its 2008
infill drilling program at Kuriskova where the company has planned more
than 9,000 metres of core Diamond drilling.
