Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.


Lightbridge Corporation (“Lightbridge”) has learned that its innovative nuclear fuel will be featured in the April 2018 edition of Nuclear Engineering and Design, an international journal devoted to all aspects of nuclear fission energy. The article, entitled “Proliferation resistant plutonium: An updated analysis,” explores the proliferation resistance of Lightbridge’s fuel. The authors performed an independent evaluation via computer simulation of Lightbridge’s fuel design for a pressurized water reactor and came to the conclusion that the resultant plutonium would be useless in current nuclear weapon designs.


Investors are encouraged to read the article in its entirety, including important assumptions and limitations discussed therein. Lightbridge has not evaluated the methodology used by the authors or the claims or conclusions set forth in the article. Lightbridge expressly disclaims any responsibility for the contents of the article and expressly disclaims any duty to update any information contained in the article, except as required by law.


The information in this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by reference to such filing.








Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
