Tournigan Energy Ltd. reports its completion of its initial phase of metallurgical testing for the Kuriskova uranium project in eastern Slovakia.

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.
