We report the discovery of a new source by the IBIS/ISGRI detector on board INTEGRAL. The new source, IGR J16283-4838, was detected during a core program observation of the Norma Arm between 2005 April 7 13:56:50 U.T. and April 9 04:44:23 U.T., with a flux of ~3.6 mCrab in the 20-60 keV band and a significance of 6.2 in a mosaic image of 126 ksec. The source was not detected in the 60-200 keV band.
