Response to ASX price and volume query

Dear Hayley

We refer to your letter dated 6 July 2017 querying the change in trading price of TAW shares from a
closing price of $0.19 on Wednesday 5 July 2017, to an intra-day high of $0.245 today, 6 July 2017,
and an increase in the volume of trading in Company?s securities over this period (?Letter?).

In response to your questions outlined in the Letter, we provide the following information:

1.       The Company is not aware of any information concerning it that has not been announced to
         the market which, if known by some in the market, could explain the recent trading in the
         Company?s securities.
2.       Not applicable.
3.       The Company provides the following potential explanations for the recent trading in the
         Company?s securities:

       a)      On Wednesday 5 July 2017, Volvo Car Group announced that it will cease producing
               petrol-only vehicles from 2019 and has thereby become the first major traditional
               automaker to set a date for phasing out vehicles powered by internal combustion engines.
               As lithium is a major component of lithium-ion batteries that are used in the electric
               vehicle industry, it is likely to have provided market assurance about the longevity of
               current lithium pricing which Tawana, being a near-term producer, can take advantage
               of.
       b)      This has also been compounded by Neometals Limited (ASX: NMT) and Mineral
               Resources Limited (ASX: MIN ) announcing on 5 July 2017 that it had reached
               agreement with Ganfeng Lithium that effective 1 July 2017 the price payable per tonne
               of 6% spodumene concentrate produced at Mt Marian and delivered CFR had increased
               from US$750 to US$841, also confirming that the current pricing of lithium concentrate
               is sustainable.
       c)      All major Australian, listed lithium producers and/or developers have also enjoyed
               increased trading and price appreciation.
4.     The Company confirms it is in compliance with its continuous disclosure obligations and the
       Listing Rules of the ASX, in particular Listing Rule 3.1.
5.     The Company can confirm that its responses to the questions above have been authorised and
       approved in accordance with its published continuous disclosure policy and approved by the
       Board.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if further information is required.


Yours sincerely
