IGC Associate, Atomic Resources Limited, Finalizes Coal JV With Tanzanian Government

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - IGC Resources Inc. ("IGC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:IGC)(PINK SHEETS:IGCGF)(FRANKFURT:I6G)(WKN:A0HGX4) is pleased to announce that Atomic Resources Limited (ASX: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.
