*    Kareevlei Wes Project, Kimberley Region, South Africa                      
(100% owned and operated by Tawana)                                             
As reported during the March quarter, the Company had previously concluded an   
agreement with Risk Free Investments 2 (Proprietary) Limited t/a Agio Diamond   
Investments ("Agio") for the sale of a 26% interest in Tawana`s Kareevlei       
Project  for Rand 12Million (approximately A$1.7million at current exchange     
rates). Agio defaulted in regards to the purchase price and a High Court Summons
was executed.  The Company believes that the matter will be resolved in favour  
of the company.

As reported during the January quarter, the Company is still pursuing parties   
concerning further future work on the Project.                                  
Prospecting activities over the northern portion of the Prospecting Right will  
continue in order to evaluate the area associated with the old St Augustine     
kimberlite mine area once the Company has raised the necessary funds to do so.  
Botswana                                                                        
*    Orapa Project, Botswana                                                    
(Tawana 100%, Nowak Investments Pty Ltd earning 51%)                            
As reported during the March quarter, Tawana has cancelled the previous Joint   
Venture with Nowak and is in discussions with a number of interested parties    
concerning further evaluation of this highly prospective tenement.              
Australia                                                                       
*    South Yarra Office                                                         
The South Yarra Office was leased during the quarter which has resulted in a    
major drain on operating overheads being eliminated without any disruption to   
corporate activity.                                                             
Corporate                                                                       
Over the past quarter, there has been substantial cost reduction in the         
corporate overheads of Tawana.                                                  
Corporate operating expenses have been continuously reduced and continuous      
attention is being directed on costs to ensure that cash is directed to actual  
or potential projects to continue to safeguard asset values.                    
Funding                                                                         
The ability of the company to continue as a going concern is dependent on       
obtaining additional funding to finance ongoing activities and costs, including 
future production, mine development and exploration activities.                 
The Company is in advanced negotiations with advisers in relation to a capital  
raising involving a placement and underwritten rights issue.  The details of the
capital raising are expected to be released within a fortnight.                 
Tawana continues to look at the sale of all surplus plant assets to strengthen  
its financial position.                                                         
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.

1    The quarterly report provides a basis for informing the market how the     
    entity`s activities have been financed for the past quarter and the effect  
on its cash position.  An entity wanting to disclose additional information 
    is encouraged to do so, in a note or notes attached to this report.         
2    The "Nature of interest" (items 6.1 and 6.2) includes options in respect of
    interests in mining tenements acquired, exercised or lapsed during the      
reporting period. If the entity is involved in a joint venture agreement    
    and there are conditions precedent which will change its percentage         
    interest in a mining tenement, it should disclose the change of percentage  
    interest and conditions precedent in the list required for items 6.1 and    
6.2.                                                                        
3    Issued and quoted securities. The issue price and amount paid up is not    
    required in items 7.1 and 7.3 for fully paid securities.                    
4    The definitions in, and provisions of, AASB 1022: Accounting for Extractive
Industries and AASB 1026: Statement of Cash Flows apply to this report.     
5    Accounting Standards. ASX will accept, for example, the use of             
    International Accounting Standards for foreign entities. If the standards   
    used do not address a topic, the Australian standard on that topic (if any) 
must be complied with.
