Thorium Power Provides Business Update and 2007 Year-End Financial Results

MCLEAN, VA–( EMWNews – March 28, 2008) – Thorium Power, Ltd. (OTCBB: THPW), the leading

developer of non-proliferative nuclear fuel technology and provider of

comprehensive advisory services for emerging nuclear programs, today

provided a business update for the twelve months ended December 31, 2007.

Seth Grae, CEO of Thorium Power, stated, “We are quite pleased with the

tremendous strides we have made in building awareness for our patented

non-proliferative, low waste nuclear fuel designs. In December 2007,

Thorium Power reached a major milestone as we entered into our first

strategic advisory contract with a foreign government-owned entity

generating professional fees totaling $3.7 million USD with a pre-payment

of $5 million USD. We subsequently entered into a follow-on agreement,

totaling a pre-payment of $4.3 million USD for a project covering an


three-month period. In our capacity as advisor, we have developed a

comprehensive roadmap as the first phase of a feasibility study for the

deployment of civilian nuclear power plants. This landmark agreement

provides validation for our business model, where strategic advisory

services are early revenue drivers as well as important elements that

create awareness for our broader offering. We are confident that this is

the beginning of a trend toward cleaner and safer nuclear fuels, and safer,

transparent and compliant nuclear program development. Thorium Power is

ideally suited for the ensuing nuclear renaissance.”

Mr. Grae continued, “We continue to attract accomplished leaders from

across the industry to join our experienced team. James D. Guerra, formerly

of Exelon Corporation, the largest generator of nuclear energy in the

United States, was appointed Chief Financial Officer, Executive Vice

President and Treasurer of Thorium Power. Dr. Hans Blix, a leading

international authority on nuclear safety, joined us as a senior advisor,

bringing his valuable global experience to support our mission. And most

recently, we appointed Robert Ihde, a veteran nuclear industry executive

and fuel expert who headed U.S. subsidiaries of Areva, to our Technical

Advisory Board. We are pleased to have such high-caliber individuals join

Thorium Power and we will benefit from their valuable expertise, collective

experience and business acumen in the nuclear field.”

Mr. Grae concluded, “During the fourth quarter, we completed a new formal

agreement with Russia’s Kurchatov Institute relating to the irradiation

testing program for the company’s fuel designs, a process that provides an

important step towards the demonstration of our fuel designs in a full

scale commercial reactor. The agreement assigned to Thorium Power Inc., a

wholly owned subsidiary of Thorium Power, Ltd., the worldwide rights, title

and interest in and to the technical data generated from the ampoule

irradiation testing of seed and blanket fuel samples in the Kurchatov

research reactor from the past two years. Equally vital to the development

of our technology, the agreement allowed us to enter an international

patent application relating to our seed and blanket fuel, further

bolstering our strong patent portfolio. Our proprietary fuel designs bring

a unique and innovative approach to the generation of nuclear power, one

that clearly differentiates Thorium Power from all other fuel technologies.

We firmly believe the future of the nuclear renaissance will depend on

viable solutions to significant concerns such as proliferation, waste, and

operating economics.”

Operating loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2007 was $11.8

million, compared to operating loss of $12.3 million for the same period

last year. Net loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2007 was $11.5

million, or $0.04 per share, compared to net loss of $11.7 million or $0.08

per share, for 2006. As of December 31, 2007, the company had approximately

$9.9 million of cash and cash equivalents and $3.4 million of working

capital. Due to our revenue recognition policy, the contracts signed during

this period will be reflected as revenues starting in Q1 2008.
