            Research and Development Refund Received

Tawana Resources NL (ASX: TAW) (the “Company”) is pleased to advise that it has
received proceeds of $379,004 (net of fees) from the Australian Taxation Office in respect
of Research and Development (R&D) conducted in the 2014 year.

The R&D Tax Incentive provides a tax rebate to support Australian companies to undertake
research and development in Australia. During the year ended 31 December 2014, Tawana
incurred eligible R&D expenditure from which the tax rebate was calculated.

Reduced Operating Expenditure Program Implemented:

The Company has diligently continued to reduce corporate and Liberian expenditure
(whilst advancing the Project’s principal activities) to minimise cash outflow whilst
maintaining key personnel.

Key corporate and senior executive officers of the Company (both permanent and contract
personnel) have all in turn accepted a 20% salary reduction in a bid to further reduce
operating and governance expenditure whilst maximising the Company’s healthy cash

The Company had a cash balance of circa $1.6 million (pre R&D refund) as at 30 June 2015
and has no debt.

Executive Chairman & CEO Mr Wayne Richards said “I would personally like to thank staff
who have all voluntarily agreed to this salary reduction during these challenging market
conditions, and am very appreciative of their commitment to the Project and our fiscal
management regime”
