of the company effective 31 January 2009.                                       
Wolf has had a long and distinguished career within the diamond exploration     
industry throughout Africa and Australia and his significant technical depth and
experience will be retained by the company in a consultancy capacity. He will be
available to evaluate current and new business opportunities and importantly    
maintain commercial relationships in Australia, South Africa and Botswana on    
behalf of Tawana.

It is important to inform the market that the payment for the sale of a 26%     
interest in Tawana`s Kareevlei project for Rand 12,000,000 (approximately $1.7M 
at current exchange rates) has been delayed.   On the 27th of October 2008      
Tawana announced to the market the conclusion of an agreement with Risk Free    
Investments 2 (Pty) Limited t/as Agio Diamond Investments. Tawana has issued a  
summons for payment in the High Court of South Africa and will pursue settlement
vigorously. The market will be informed of progress on the litigation as it     
comes to hand.                                                                  
Alternate sources of funding and asset utilisation                              
As a potential contingency, the company is pursuing alternate sources of funding
and is also holding discussions with various groups regarding possible joint    
ventures on the company`s projects.  Of note, the company is pursuing a possible
joint venture on a new and potentially substantial alluvial deposit, the details
of which will be released to the market once all documents have been executed.
