Highlights

Mt Belches Lithium Projects

-   Tawana acquired Mount Belches Pty Ltd (?Mt Belches?), which has one tenement application
    and rights (via an option agreement) to acquire 100% of three exploration licences and one
    exploration licence application, all of which are highly prospective for lithium and located in
    the Goldfields region of Western Australia.

-   The Cowan Lithium Project covers approximately 26km strike of two belts containing a large
    number of rare element pegmatites.
-   Prior shallow exploration and previous small scale mining focused on tantalum and tin only.
-   Anomalous lithium assayed in wide spaced geochem & rock chip sampling.
-   A number of spodumene-rich pegmatites mapped and a large number of drill-ready lithium
    geo-chemical anomalies identified in previous exploration data.
-   Recent rock-chip sampling returned grades of up to 1.85% Li (3.99% Li2O) from spodumene-
    rich pegmatite.
-   Drilling to test the known spodumene pegmatites and lithium geochemical anomalies is
    planned for September 2016.
-   The purchase consideration for Mt Belches will be the issue of 40,000,000 Tawana shares to
    shareholders of Mt Belches.



Mofe Creek Iron Ore Project
Project Studies - Mine, Logistics, Infrastructure and Approvals

-   The Mineral Development Agreement (MDA) for Tawana?s 100% owned Mofe Creek Project,
    incorporating both the northern and southern tenements and a potential early start-up project
    for Direct Shipping Ore (DSO), continues to be under review by Liberia?s Inter-Ministerial
    Concessions Committee (IMCC) and a response is anticipated in the September 2016
    quarter. The Company is conducting minimal exploration work on the Mofe Creek Project until
    the MDA has been received.

Corporate

-    As at 30 June 2016, Tawana Resources had A$1.2 million in cash.
-    Mark Calderwood appointed Chief Executive Officer who has significant corporate credentials
     and relevant exploration experience.
-    The Company completed a one for one non-renounceable rights issue at an issue price of
     $0.015 per share which raised $1.1 million before costs.
-    On 8 April 2016, the Company?s shareholders approved a one-for-twenty consolidation of its
     issued capital.
-    In July 2016, the Company received commitments for a placement to raise $1.75 million at an
     issue price of $0.025 per share.


Cowan Lithium Project1

Cowan Lithium Project
The Cowan Lithium Project (?Project?) area is located 50km south east of Kambalda in the
Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia. It is located approximately 75km south east of the Mt
Marion Lithium project.
Geology
The Project area comprises Archaean quartz-biotite metasediments and amphibolites of the
Eastern Goldfields Terrane of the Yilgarn Craton. These metasediments trend north-south and
have been intruded by large numbers of pegmatites.
Two main belts of rare element Lithium-Caesium-Tantalum type (?LCT?) pegmatites are known
in the Project area. LCT type pegmatites are derived from highly siliceous, peraluminous (S-
Type, ?fertile? granites) as highly fractionated granitic melts. These fractionated melts contain
the rare elements (Be, Rb, Cs, Sn, Nb, Ta etc) and a high volatile content (H2O, F, B, P and Li).
Petr ?erny's pegmatite classification (?erny 1991) is the accepted standard. Under this
pegmatite classification scheme the Project area is prospective for:
    i)      LCT Albite-spodumene: These are typically unzoned, homogeneous pegmatites with
            subhedral spodumene in a quartz-albite matrix. The Mt Marion pegmatites (located
            75km to the northwest) are examples of this subclass.
    ii)     LCT Albite: Zoned albite pegmatites have a fine grained albite and quartz border zone
            with albite, often of the cleavelandite variety, as the central pegmatite zone. Small
            quartz lenses and scattered pods of coarsely crystallized quartz, microcline with
            accessory minerals of beryl and phosphates with mica are found irregularly within the
            albite central zones. Tantalum minerals are found disseminated within the albite.
    iii)    LCT Complex: There are considered to be four subclasses depending upon which Li-
            bearing mineral is dominant in the pegmatite.
              a)   Spodumene: spodumene-dominant lithium-bearing pegmatites that are zoned and
                   mineralogically complex (e.g. the Greenbushes and Mt Cattlin pegmatite
                   deposits).
              b)   Petalite: Zoned pegmatites dominated by petalite and/or its alteration products
                   (e.g. the Londonderry pegmatites, located 105km to the west-northwest).
              c)   Lepidolite: Pegmatites simple or zoned with are rich in lepidolite (e.g. the Mt
                   Deans pegmatites located 105km to the southwest).
              d)   Amblygonite: Amblygonite-rich pegmatites (Ubini pegmatite, located 130km to
                   the west-northwest).

   The two large LCT pegmatite belts defined within the Project area are:
   1)    Mt Belches ? Bald Hill (?MBBH Belt?)

         This pegmatite belt striking north to northwest extends for at least 15km, however the
         pegmatite belt likely extends for at least 25km under transported cover. A large number
         of albite rich and LCT type Albite-Spodumene pegmatites occur over a width of about 4km.
         Previous exploration and exploitation has been focused on tantalum and tin. About 10km
         strike of the pegmatite belt is located on the Mount Belches tenements.
   2)    Claypan Dam- Madoonia (?CDM Belt?)

         This less explored northeast-southwest oriented LCT pegmatite belt has a strike of at least
         22km and width of at least 7km. The belt is known to contain LCT Albite pegmatites with
         tantalite and tin and potentially hosts LCT Albite-Spodumene pegmatites. A significant
         portion of the belt is covered by the Mount Belches tenements.

and internal evolution of pegmatite deposits: Geoscience Canada, V. 18:2, p 49-67

(Jacobson et al 2007) is reference to Jacobson, M . I., Calderwood M. A. and Grguric B. A., 2007
Guidebook to Pegmatites of Western Australia p299-308

   The pegmatites occur as gently dipping sheets and as steeply dipping veins which are all elongate in
   a northerly direction, parallel to the regional foliation. They range in thickness from a few metres
   to as much as 30 metres and in some instances occur as multiple, parallel dykes or swarms separated
   by a few metres of sheared metasediments (Jacobson et al 2007).
   The unweathered pegmatites as exposed in the Bald Hill South pit (south of the Project area) are
   composed of two zones, a quartz-spodumene-albite zone and a quartz-microcline-muscovite-albite
   zone. From inspection, cassiterite, columbite-tantalite are present as accessory minerals in the
   quartz-spodumene-albite zone. The zoning is so poorly defined that these pegmatites can be
   classified as unzoned albite-spodumene pegmatites (Jacobson et al 2007).
   Outcrops of exposed schist and pegmatites are restricted to limited areas; most of the tenement
   area is concealed by bluebush floodplain and sandplain and wash zones. Remnants of Eocene
   sediments also mask bedrock.

Previous Work

Prior exploration by tantalum explorers on the tenements has essentially been limited to:
 A)    Wide spaced (~200m x 400m) shallow RAB (and minor RC) drilling for bottom of hole
       geochemistry including lithium assays. Within the project area 419 holes averaging 12.9m
       were drilled and sampled within part of the MBBH Belt and 257 holes averaging 16.1m
       were drilled and sampled within part of the CDM Belt. The resulting lithium geochemical
       database has resulted in the identification of a significant number of anomalies worthy
       of follow-up drilling. Based on the entire regional database lithium assays of schist with
       40ppm (85ppm Li2O) are considered anomalous, 80ppm (170ppm Li2O) strongly anomalous
       and 120ppm (260ppm Li2O) highly anomalous. Background lithium levels within the schist
       hosting the two pegmatite belts is about 3ppm. A summary of drill hole geochemical
       results are provided in Table 1 and shown on Figures 3 to 6. Selected individual drill hole
       geochemical results are provided in Table 4. A summary of anomalous rock chip results
       from previous exploration are provided in Table 2. These rock chip results are shown on
       Figures 3 to 6 as pegmatite locations.

 B)    Rock chip sampling, prior explorers collected more than 226 pegmatite samples from
       within the Project area of which 219 were assayed for Li. A total of 95 (42%) of the rock
       chip samples contained anomalous levels of one or more of Li, Cs, Ta or Sn.

 C)    The extensive shallow auger and soil sampling is considered to be of limited value due to
       the unknown regolith profile and extensive transported Archaean derived regolith or in-
       situ Eocene sediments and the likely leaching of lithium from the weathered sampling
       medium.
 D)    RC drilling of 24 pegmatites (or pegmatite clusters) was undertaken however lithium was
       not analysed in pegmatite samples. A total of 70 RC and RAB holes intercepted
       pegmatites within the Cowan Project area. RC drill hole BHC1013 intercepted 14.5m of
       pegmatite with spodumene logged throughout. RC drill hole BHR882 contained a 4m
       intersection of pegmatite which was logged as containing spodumene and a bottom of
       hole (BOH) schist sample contains 2,019ppm Li2O.

Prior production within the Project Area is limited to a small amount of tin and/or tantalum from
eluvials at the Mount Belches workings. Soft and hard rock mining for tantalum with associated
accessory tin has been undertaken at the Bald Hill and the Dawn View mines on adjoining tenements
and at Saint John workings on excised licences.

Recent Work

Recent mapping and rock chip sampling of outcropping spodumene bearing pegmatites located within
E15/1446 in the Mount Belches area, has returned lithium values from 15 samples of pegmatite.
Lithium values range from 3,762 ppm (0.81% Li2O) in pegmatite containing moderate spodumene
content up to 18,545 ppm (3.99% Li2O) in pegmatites with high spodumene content. Results of the
15l samples are contained in Table 5, sample locations and details of sampling are contained in
Appendix 1 Section 2 and the Li2O results are shown on Figure 4.
Initial Exploration Planned by Tawana
The Company plans to undertake initial RC drilling of existing drill targets. Concurrently with drilling
the Company will undertake further mapping and sampling within the pegmatite belts not previously
explored. Mineralogy will be undertaken on pegmatites to better define their LCT type pegmatite
classification.


Yallari Project1
The Yallari Project is located 25km southeast of Coolgardie and about 10km west of Mt Marion. The
project areas cover portions of the greenstone sequence that hosts the Mt Marion and Londonderry
pegmatite fields. Numerous pegmatites have been mapped by nickel and base metal explorers
however there are no records on the rare element content of the pegmatites. These pegmatites
based on their mineralogy are probably derived from a peraluminous and possible ?fertile?
granite. The geological setting of the pegmatites and the proximity to the Mt Marion and
Londonderry lithium bearing pegmatite fields is encouraging.

Sampling is required to define the pegmatite type(s) and their potential for mineralisation. Based
on the currently known pegmatite mineralogy the most prospective area for lithium enriched
pegmatites will be further from the source granite (Figure 8). Three recent samples of pegmatite
scree from near access tracks returned anomalous lithium result from one sample (Refer Table 6).

Terms of the Tenement Option Agreement

The terms of the option agreement for Mt Belches to acquire 100% of the Cowan Lithium Project
tenements are as follows:

  -       An option payment of $100,000 which was paid by Tawana on 6 July 2016;
  -       $2,000,000 in cash or Tawana shares (based on the 30 day VWAP) any time up to 4
          March 2017. The choice of cash or shares or a combination of the two is at the election
          of the grantor of the Option; and
  -       2% gross revenue royalty on any production.

Consideration for the Purchase of Mt Belches Pty Ltd

The consideration for Tawana to acquire Mt Belches is the issue of 40,000,000 Tawana shares to
the shareholders of Mt Belches, none of whom are related parties of the Company. This is subject
to shareholder approval on 23 August 2016.

Mofe Creek Iron Ore Project
Mineral Development Agreement (MDA)

The Company is awaiting a formal response from Liberia?s IMCC with regard to the first
pass submission of Tawana Liberia Inc.?s Mineral Development Agreement. A response is
anticipated in the September 2016 quarter. Activities on the project have been limited
until a formal response on the MDA has been received.
The MDA is an agreement outlining the technical, commercial and
social/environmental commitments to be undertaken to build, operate and sustain a
project within Liberia, and is a legislative document passed as a bill in parliament for
a term of 25 years.

Infrastructure & Logistics

On 18 May 2015, Tawana and WISCO CAD (Hong Kong) Mining Company Limited (WISCO)
signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MoU)2 to negotiate in good faith, a
potential definitive Cooperation Agreement between the parties in relation to access
and use of WISCO CAD?s port facilities in the port of Freeport, Monrovia.
Negotiations remain ongoing.

Exploration

Bomi Hills Analogue and Significance of Drilling Program
Initial geological observations from drilling (refer ASX announcement on 18 February
2016) at the Goehn Prospect highlights the similarities in lithology and mineralisation
setting as reported at the Bomi Hills mine.

The Goehn Prospect is along strike from the abandoned Bomi Hills iron ore mine which
was in production from 1951 to 1977. Historic production at Bomi Hills is poorly
documented; however estimated historic production by the Government of Liberia is
50Mt of high-grade DSO lump magnetite in addition to high-grade beneficiated sinter
feed concentrate. DSO magnetite averaged 64.5% Fe, 4.5% SiO2, 1.5% Al2O3 and 0.13% P,
of which 53% formed lump material (average 11-37mm) and 47% formed fines (<11mm).
Friable iron formation was beneficiated through Humphrey Spirals and a magnetic
separator to produce sinter feed concentrate averaging 64% Fe, 6% SiO 2 and 0.04-0.05%
P (Gruss, 1973).

The genesis of the Bomi Hills magnetite deposit is not clearly understood, however,
general consensus is that it is hypogene and represents an itabirite that has come into
direct contact with rising gneissic fronts causing enrichment to coarse massive magnetite
by metamorphic differentiation (Gruss, 1973). Magnetite mineralisation is in direct
contact with gneissic basement and is partially blind.

The Bomi Hills cross section at figure 10 has striking similarities between the lithologies
intersected at Goehn.
Drilling at Goehn has intersected a similar package of friable iron formation transitioning
into hard iron formation from surface, through mafic schist and into footwall gneiss
basement. DSO has been intersected within and directly below the mafic schists over
variable widths and to a current average of 15m.

Potential DSO Start Up
The DSO mineralisation defined within the Goehn Prospect falls within 6km of the
bitumen road between the Mofe Creek Project area and the operational port of Monrovia;
only 85km away (Refer Figure 9). This new discovery represents a strategic opportunity
to structure an early-start-up operation with minimal capital intensity, using the existing
highway and a working port within Monrovia. The mineralisation is readily accessible and
presents from surface.
The Goehn Prospect also supports the opportunity for a potential early start-up, low-
capital intensity mining and trucking operation within the initial years of production and
project life cycle. Due to the hematite DSO style mineralisation discovered, a
beneficiation process may not be required at start-up and will only be introduced as the
mineralisation transitions from DSO into friable itabirite mineralization. This mining
methodology ensures the delayed capital requirements of a processing facility and allows
the wet plant to be potentially funded from cashflow and/or strategic debt, once the
Company is operational and generating an income.
This potential development is further enhanced by the infrastructure sharing MoU
executed between the Company and WISCO-CAD; the owner-operator of the Monrovia
port iron ore handling facilities (refer ASX announcement of 18 May 2015).
The Company continues to explore a range of potential options to unlock value for
shareholders, including joint venture or outright sale options.

Corporate

Cash and Fiscal Management
As at 30 June 2016, Tawana Resources held $1.2 million in cash. The company
maintained stringent fiscal management programs in order to minimise expenditure at a
corporate and project level.
The Company completed a 1 for 1 pro rata non-renounceable rights issue at an issue price
of $0.015 raising $1,106,441 before costs.
Appointment of Chief Executive Officer
Mark Calderwood was appointed Chief Executive Officer (?CEO?) of the Company
effective 11 July 2016. He has extensive experience in mineral exploration and
production management, he is an authority on pegmatites and was a co-author of the
?Pegmatites of Western Australia?. Mr Calderwood was CEO of Perseus Mining Limited
for 9 years and is currently non-executive director of three junior gold explorers. Mr
Calderwood has the requisite 5 years? experience for reporting on the results of rare
metal pegmatite exploration.

Placement
In order to fund planned exploration programs, the Company has received commitments
to raise $1,750,000 by issue of shares at a price of $0.025 per share.

In July, Tranche 1 of the capital raising was completed and 19,620,000 ordinary shares at an issue
price $0.025 per share were issued to sophisticated investors.

Tranche 2 of 50,400,000 shares at an issue price of $0.025 per share is subject to shareholder
approval on 23 August 2016 as outlined in the Notice of General Meeting announced on 21 July
2016.

Share Consolidation
On 8 April 2016, the Company completed a one-for-twenty consolidation of its issued
capital. The consolidation resulted in the shares on issue being reduced from
approximately 1,475.3 million to 73.8 million (before any subsequent capital raising).

All outstanding options were also consolidated on the same ratio which will resulted in a
total of 1.12 million options on issue.
