Share Placement Completed
Tawana Resources NL (ASX: TAW) (the Company) is pleased to announce that it has successfully
completed the placement of all new shares in the Company to institutions and professional investors,
in accordance with the capital raising announced to the ASX on 8 April 2014.
A total of 200 million fully paid ordinary shares in the capital of the Company have been issued to
investors at an issue price of $0.025 per share to raise a total of $5 million before costs (Placement),

Funds raised will be used primarily to advance the Pre-Feasibility Study and associated
engineering/design and resource upgrades for the Company’s Mofe Creek Iron Ore project in Liberia,
including both an early start-up operational option, and a larger long-term production project.
The Placement was strongly supported both new investors and long-term advocates of the Company

create value uplift for its shareholders.
