Highlights

Mofe Creek Iron Ore Project (the Project)

Studies – Mine, Logistics, Infrastructure and Approvals

   •    Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) progressed during the quarter.
   •    The Company’s primary focus was the advancement of:
       - the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA);
       - the Mineral Development Agreement (MDA); and
       - Road and port logistics routes and design.
   •   Initial economics for the PFS (based upon development of an independent 32km
       haul road and a transhipment berth/port facility) highlights the ongoing technical
       and financial robustness of the Project.
   •   PFS focusing on design and construction of modular processing plant(s) and
       associated logistics for the transportation and export of 2.5 million tonnes per
       annum (Mtpa).
   •   Quotes and tenders for maritime studies associated with bathometric data for the
       design of a transhipment facility were progressed.

   Environmental and Community

   •   Tawana conducted ongoing community consultation meetings within the Project
       area
   •   The Company received formal notification from the Environmental Protection
       Agency of Liberia of its official right to proceed to conduct the Environmental and
       Social Impact Assessment for the Project.

   Exploration and Leases

   •   Significant drilling results were received for 1,114m of drilling completed at the
       Gofolo and Zaway projects; including 72.7m @ 39.6% Fe from surface.
   •   Results provide confidence in the current resource model and continuity of
       mineralisation as well as the potential for additional resource tonnes.
   •   An initial exploration program on the recently granted 100%-owned adjoining
       tenement – EL 1223/14 has been submitted to the Ministry of Lands, Mines and
       Energy (MLME) for approval.
   •   Planning is underway towards the recommencement of full field activities, and
       site-based drilling in the coming quarter.

Mofe Creek Iron Ore Project

Studies

Mofe Creek Preliminary Feasibility Study

The PFS is being prepared to provide a +/- 20% cost estimate for the Project and in
particular will focus on the initial mine development, processing plant design and the
logistics components to effect the transportation and export of a minimium of 2.5 Mtpa of
final product (+65% Fe) from a proposed new coastal port site location - refer Figure 2.

Key engineering and design tasks, associated with the advancement of the PFS,
undertaken during the quarter included:

ROM, Plant and utilities/office layout drawings for the start-up mine and processing
facility, tailings storage facility and associated ingress/egress roads for ore transport,
were designed and drafted;

Continuous monitoring of climatic conditions within the Project area have progressed
throughout the quarter and the country’s nominal wet season, to establish baseline data
for future plant, civils and design, along with surface and mine water management
requirements;

Landside logistics routes determined from high-level DTM data for the design of an
independent heavy-haul road from mine to port, and final product storage and export
facilities at the proposed coastal port location;

Expressions of interest and tenders for ‘wind and wave’ and maritime bathymetric studies
associated with the determination of the ultimate coastal port location were progressed,
with award pending; and

Marine infrastructure and logistics studies, including barging solutions for transhipment
and direct ship-loading facilities, culminating with the drafting of preliminary port layout
drawings – refer Figure 3 overleaf.

Modelling of the sea-conditions at the optimal coastal port location will progress in the
forthcoming quarter, once site access has been fully re-established.

A study undertaken by CSL Transhipment Group has confirmed the effective transhipment
design and vessel capacity required to ensure a minimal export capacity of 2.5 Mtpa. This
capacity can be readily expanded to a nominal output capacity of 8 Mtpa. The expanded
design capacity incorporates a higher utilisation of the proposed, single self-unloading
transhipment vessel (TSV). A simulation model with trade-offs on transhipment vessel
design, draft and loading/unloading times, inclusive of prevailing weather assumptions,
has been developed.

A preliminary design of a port receival, storage and discharge system has been drafted,
confirming the simplified approach to the proposed design, minimising site civils and
limiting transfer points and/or conveyor runs. The port design is readily expandable to
greater than 2.5 Mtpa.

The port layout is being designed to receive 150-220t payload trucks, which will side-tip
into a conveyor system, direct to undercover storage. The product will be reclaimed by
front-end loaders at a nominal rate of 4000 t/hr, and the TSV loading and unloading rates
will be designed to match these tonnages.

Several marine engineering firms are currently conceptualising the design of a “fit for
purpose” wharf, that will minimise start-up capital and is readily constructed, with
minimal piling and strucutral complexity. An example of an ‘A’-frame wharf design being
considered is presented in Figure 4 overleaf:

As an additional and alternate design to an “A” Frame” jetty, the Project will also address
the technical, environmental, commercial and capital merits of an “internal” harbour, or
small sheltered inlet – with direct access to sea. This design is depicted in Figure 5 below,
and has varying economic trade-offs and variances to a traditional wharf or jetty design.

The length of the potential wharf design will be confirmed via local bathymetric surveys,
to be conducted later this year. The final coastal (land-side) or sea-side point for loading
the TSV, will be contingent on the water depth required to load varying draft vessels.

Radar satellite imagery and high resolution optical satellite imagery was also acquired for
the Project, inclusive of the proposed mine locations, logistics corridor(s) and port
handling and despatch areas. This data will greatly assist with the contour mapping and
preliminary design of the road and port receival and storage facility.

Mineral Development Agreement - MDA

A detailed presentation to the Ministry of Lands, Mines and Energy confirming Tawana’s
technical and financial capability to develop the Mofe Creek project, was forwarded to the
Ministry in November 2014.

A formal review of this document has been conducted by the MLME and relevant
Government of Liberia officials, and an approval to commence formal negotiations with
the elected Inter-Ministerial Concessional Committee (“IMCC”) is pending.

The MDA is a legally binding agreement, outlining the technical, commercial and
social/environmental commitments to be undertaken to build, operate and sustain a
project within Liberia, and is a legislative document passed as a bill in parliament, for a
term of 25 years.

The MDA negotiation process is scheduled to proceed for a period of up to nine months,
and is ideally being coordinated to align with the completion of the Project’s PFS.

Health, Safety, Environmental and Community

Tawana has effectively structured and implemented an Ebola Management Plan, as a sub-
set of the Company’s Risk and Event Management Plan (“EMP”) and has incorporated the
key aspects of the plan(s) into the site remobilisation plan.

Ebola Virus Disease Update

The Company temporarily suspended all non-essential field activities within Liberia, in
response to the Ebola Virus Disease (‘EVD’), in August last year.

Liberian President, Ms Ellen Johnson Sirleaf lifted the State of Emergency in December
2014. Whilst curfews between the hours of 24:00 and 06:00 hours remain in place, at the
time of writing this report, the management of the EVD has advanced significantly, and
there have now been recent days of no new cases being confirmed within the country.

To this end, the Company announced (refer ASX release 22 January 2015) that subject to a
final assessment of the Ebola virus situation in the Grand Cape Mount County (the area in
which the Mofe Creek Project is located), the Company would re-mobilise personnel back
into the Project area during the forthcoming month. The Company is in discussions with
relevant contractors and consultants on the recommencement dates and is developing
appropriate work programs and health and safety management plans, to effect
remobilisation.

The Company has assisted, where practical (both financially and physically) to support the
eradication of the EVD within the community in which the Project is located and the wider
Liberian community.

Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA)
The Company received formal notification from the Environmental Protection Agency of
Liberia of its official right to proceed to conduct the Environmental and Social Impact
Assessment for the Project (refer ASX release 1 October 2014).

The Company completed two independent and targeted campaigns of local community
consultation and briefing meetings with stakeholders.

As previously outlined, the additional detailed satellite imagery acquired will likewise
assist with the detailed mapping of land use around the project area; an integral
component of the baseline studies.

Exploration

The Company received all assay results for 1,114.6m of drilling (including re-drills) of a
7,500m planned programme (refer ASX release 23 October 2014)2. The drilling programme
was designed to increase the current resource from 61.9Mt1 (refer ASX release 31 March
2014) to a targeted 100Mt to 120Mt for the Pre-Feasibility Study. As previously outlined,
drilling was temporarily suspended in August 2014 due to the Ebola virus situation.
Selected significant intersections at a 20% Fe cut-off with a maximum of 2m internal
dilution included2:

   -      GMDD013       72.7m        @   39.6%     Fe from surface
   -      GMDD015       29.3m        @   39.6%     Fe from surface
   -      GMDD012       45.8m        @   34%       Fe from 14.3m; and
                        37.7m        @   32.4%     Fe from 80.3m
   -      ZDD006        20m          @   38.7%     Fe from 131.5m
   -      ZDD009        7.6m         @   45.4%     Fe from 23m

Results were extremely pleasing and provided confidence in the mineralisation continuity
across the deposits as well as the potential for additional resource tonnes due to thicker
mineralised widths intersected on the expanded sections.

Drilling results received confirmed the mineralisation continuity between drill sections and
down dip; potentially converting mineralisation on relevant sections from Inferred to
Indicated resources. On certain sections, drilling results have increased mineralised width
when compared to the current resource model. This is significant as it may result in an
increased resource estimate. All intersections reported at Gofolo Main are listed in Table 1
below.

Drilling intersected both friable and fresh iron formation (likely itabirite) interlayered with
metasediments and quartzites. Drilling results have confirmed the current resource model,
and on all sections drilled; extended mineralisation depth, resulting in the potential for a
resource upgrade.

As at 31 December 2014, Tawana Resources held $2.8 million in cash.  Refer to the
Appendix 5B (ASX website) for principal movements in cash for the quarter.

The Company is in a strong cash position to advance the PFS and has prudently managed
the study and value-accretion activities of the staff and Liberian employees.

Appropriate fiscal management programs and policies continue to be implemented across
the business, both within Australia and Liberia, and the Company has recently completed
its fiscal year-end (that being 31 December 2014).

The Company will conduct the relevant year-end audits and reconciliations and is
targeting an Annual General Meeting date of 26 May 2015.

Divestment of Non-Core Assets

Closure of the Botswana entity is ongoing with international accounting firm PwC
preparing de-registration documents.

BlueRock Diamonds have expressed their ongoing desire to purchase the Company’s total
shareholding and loan account in Diamond Resources (a 100% -owned subsidiary of Tawana
Resources NL).

Subsequent to Baosteel Iron and Steel Group’s acquisition of Aquila Resources during the
September quarter, representatives of the newly formed entity completed site visits to
the Company’s Rakana RSA assets. Tawana met with the newly appointed Australian-based
General Manager of Development. Work on the valuation and strategic direction of this
Project is ongoing.

Board and Executive Management Changes

As part of a continuing focus on the advancement of the Mofe Creek project, the following
Board and Executive Management changes were implemented with effect from 01 January
2015:

-   Mr Wayne Richards commenced the dual role of Chief Executive Officer and Executive
    Chairman of Tawana Resources NL.

-   Mr Len Kolff stepped into the role of Technical Director, stepping down from the role
    of Managing Director. Mr Kolff will remain an Executive Director of the Board of
    Tawana Resources NL and any relevant subsidiary companies.

-   Mr Matthew Bowles resigned from the Board in order to focus on other business
    commitments. Mr Bowles was a valued member of the Board over three years and the
    Board would like to take this opportunity to thank and acknowledge his involvement
    and commitment during his directorship.

-   In conjunction with Mr Bowles’ resignation, current Tawana Chief Financial Officer
    and Company Secretary, Mr Michael Naylor accepted the role as Executive Director of
    the Board of Tawana Resources NL.

-   Mr Naylor has 18 years’ experience in corporate advisory and public company
    management. Mr Naylor previously worked as a Finance Director and Company
    Secretary of ASX listed Dragon Mining Limited; Chief Executive Officer and Managing
    Director of dual ASX/TSX-V listed Coventry Resources Inc. and is concurrently the
    Chief Financial Officer of Gryphon Minerals Limited.

Mr Winton Willesee retired as Company Secretary effective 30 November 2014, and was
replaced by Mr Naylor.

About Tawana (ASX & JSE: TAW)
Tawana Resources NL is an iron ore focused ASX and JSE-listed Company with its principal
project in Liberia, West Africa. Tawana’s 100% owned Mofe Creek project (“the Project”)
is a new discovery in the heart of Liberia’s historic iron ore district, located 20km from
the coast and 85km from the country’s capital city and major port, Monrovia.
Tawana is committed to becoming a mid-tier iron ore producer through the development of
the Mofe Creek project, which covers 471km2 of highly prospective tenements in Grand Cape
Mount County. The Project hosts high-grade friable itabirite mineralisation which can be easily
upgraded to a superior quality iron ore product in the 64-68% Fe grade range, for which there
is consistent global demand, attracting significant price premiums.

Notes

    For more information on the 61.9Mt Resource estimate, refer to ASX announcement dated 31 March 2014.
    Tawana Resources is not aware of any new information or data that materially effects the information
    included in the said announcement.

    For full details of exploration results refer to ASX announcement dates 23 October 2014. Tawana
    Resources in not aware of any new information or data that materially effects the information included in
    the said announcement.

    Full details of the Scoping Study referred to in this announcement were initially released to the ASX in an
    announcement dated 3 July 2014, and should be read in conjunction with this announcement. All material
    assumptions underpinning the Scoping Study, production targets and forecast financial information derived
    from the production targets as well as any cautionary statements and disclosures as required under the ASX
    Listing Rules and 2012 JORC Code are set out in the announcement dated 3 July 2014 and continue to apply
    and have not materially changed.
    The Scoping Study referred to in this announcement is preliminary in nature as its conclusions are drawn on
    inferred (74%) and indicated mineral resources (26%). The Scoping Study is based on lower-level technical
    and economic assessments, which are insufficient to support estimation of Ore Reserves or to provide
    assurance of an economic development case at this stage, or to provide certainty that the conclusions of
    the Scoping Study will be realised.

    There is a low level of geological confidence associated with inferred mineral resources and there is no
    certainty that further exploration work will result in the determination of indicated mineral resources or
    that the production target itself will be realised. There is also no certainty that the forecast financial
    information derived from the production targets will be realised.

Notes

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 6: Exploration for and Evaluation of Mineral
          Resources and AASB 107: Statement of Cash Flows apply to this report.

5         Accounting Standards ASX will accept, for example, the use of International Financial
          Reporting 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.
