12 September 2007

The Directors of Tawana Resources (TAW) advise that 5 million shares, each with 
an attached option, were placed at A$0.15 each with institutional investors     
raising A$750,000. The options are exercisable at A$0.15 on or before 11        
September 2009.                                                                 
The funds raised will be used to progress the Orapa Project (TAW 100%) in       
Botswana, the Riverton (TAW earning 70%) and Kareevlei (TAW 74%) Projects in    
South Africa. The funds raised equate to approximately Rand 4.5 million.        
In April 2007 Tawana was granted a new prospecting licence over an area of      
approximately 57 square kilometres, covering 8 kimberlites in the Orapa         
kimberlite field in Botswana. Applications for this Prospecting Licence were    
submitted by a number of companies on a competitive basis. The Orapa kimberlite 
field is located in north eastern Botswana, and includes the Orapa, Letlhakane  
and Damtshaa diamond mines, which produce in excess of 13 million carats of     
diamonds per year.                                                              
Tawana has commenced assessment of the kimberlites in the prospecting licence   
and initial indications are that the diamondiferous BK24 is in excess of 3      
hectares in surface area and at least one other kimberlite has a surface area of
2 hectares.                                                                     
Bulk sampling has commenced at Riverton, located 25km north of Kimberley, and   
diamonds were recovered during the first week of processing of the initial bulk 
sample. 18 diamonds weighing 9.07 carats were recovered. These include a 3.12ct 
pale yellow diamond, a 1.31ct diamond and a 1.08ct diamond. The average size of 
the diamonds is 0.50 carats. This is an unusually large average size for        
diamonds from a kimberlite.                                                     
At Kareevlei the Company`s dense media separation plant has been constructed in 
readiness for the commencement of trial mining.
