Review of operations

Mofe Creek Iron Ore Project
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 80km from the
country’s capital city and major port, Monrovia (refer figure 1).

Tawana is committed to becoming a mid-tier iron ore producer through the development of the Mofe
                                    2
Creek Project, which covers 475km of highly prospective tenements in Grand Cape Mount County.
The Project hosts high-grade Direct Shipping Ore (DSO) and friable itabirite mineralisation which can
be easily upgraded to a superior quality iron ore product of +65% Fe, for which there is consistent
global demand.


Development and Infrastructure

-    A number of significant milestones were achieved in the advancement of the Mineral
     Development Agreement (MDA) including:
          o The President of the Republic of Liberia, the honorable Ellen Johnson Sirleaf officially
            appointing an Inter-Ministerial Concessions Committee (IMCC) to negotiate Tawana’s
            MDA.
          o A formal presentation of Tawana’s Mofe Creek Iron Ore Project to the IMCC in
            Monrovia was successfully concluded in April 2015.
          o A draft MDA was submitted to the Government of Liberia for their review and
            advancement in May 2015.
-    The discovery of Direct Shipping Ore (DSO) on the newly acquired tenement MEL1223/14 has
     presented the Company with a potential strategic opportunity to mine and supply high-grade feed
     to an early start-up, low capital intensity project at a significantly reduced operating and capital
     cost, due to very simple crushing and screening requirements only (i.e. no beneficiation).
-    A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was executed between the Company and WISCO-CAD
                                                                           1
     (WISCO) for the use of the Freeport iron ore facility in Monrovia . WISCO is the owner-operator
     of the iron ore port facility and is currently exporting iron ore. A draft Cooperation Agreement has
     been forwarded to WISCO for review and negotiation. The MoU provides the platform for
     negotiating a commercially viable end-to-end logistics solution for the Mofe Creek project during
     its early stages of development and ramp-up.




                                                                                                       4
-   The Company was granted an eight-month extension of the initial three-year exploration term for
    both licences MEL12029 and MEL1223/14 by the Ministry of Lands, Mines and Energy (MLME),
    in consideration of the Ebola outbreak and acknowledged Force Majeure event.

Environment and Community
    Liberia was declared Ebola-free by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on 9 May 2015. The
    Company remobilised Liberian and expatriate staff in March as a result of significant advances in
    the containment of the disease as well as the proactive management of the Ebola Virus Disease
    by the Government of Liberia, the international community, health organisations and NGO’s.
-   As part of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment, the Company commenced an
    independent and targeted campaign of local community consultation and briefing meetings with
    stakeholders within and around the proposed mining areas.
-   Tawana was awarded its Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) permit for the Southern
    Licence - MEL1223/14. This permit allows the Company to progress field exploration activities
    and is a legal requirement under Liberian regulation.
?   A Scoping Report and Terms of Reference report for an Environmental and Social Impact
    Assessment (ESIA), for the Company’s Mofe Creek project (Project) was submitted for review to
    the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of Liberia.

Exploration
?   The Company announced the discovery of a new high-grade Direct Shipping Ore (DSO)
                                                                            2
    hematite mineralisation, averaging 62.8% Fe and up to 66% Fe , located a short trucking
    distance to the operating port of Freeport, Monrovia. Additionally the Company has discovered
    greater than 2.2km strike of friable itabirite mineralisation in the Goehn prospect as part of its
    ongoing low-cost exploration strategy over the Company’s recently acquired, 100% owned
    MEL1223/14 Mofe Creek South licence (refer figure 2).
-   New and additional iron ore mineralisation was identified from outcropping iron formations at
    both the Koehnko North East and Koehnko East prospects within Tawana’s 100% owned Mofe
    Creek project.*
-   Field teams continued low-cost geological mapping and rock-chip sampling of high-priority
    targets within the wholly owned southern MEL1223/14 tenement.
Corporate
-   Appropriate fiscal management programs and policies continue to be implemented to minimise
    expenditure both at a corporate and project level. The Company will continue to manage low
    cost, value-accretive activities, which will include the advancement of the MDA and targeted
    exploration activities.
-   Expressions of interest have been received to purchase the Company’s total shareholding and
    loan account in Diamond Resources (a 100% owned subsidiary of Tawana Resources NL).

Notes to the Financial Statements
For the half-year ended 30 June 2015


1.   Basis of preparation
     These half-year consolidated financial statements are general purpose condensed financial
     statements prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Corporations Act 2001 and
     Australian Accounting Standard AASB 134: Interim Financial Reporting.

     It is recommended that these financial statements be read in conjunction with the annual
     financial report for the year ended 31 December 2014 and any public announcements made by
     Tawana Resources NL and its controlled entities during the half-year in accordance with
     continuous disclosure requirements arising under the Corporations Act 2001.

     The half-year financial statements do not include full disclosures of the type normally included in
     annual financial statements.

     The accounting policies applied by the Group in the consolidated interim financial statements
     are the same as those applied by the Group in its consolidated financial report for the year
     ended 31 December 2014.

     All new and amended Accounting Standards and Interpretations effective from 1 January 2015
     (listed below) have been adopted:
     - AASB 2014-1 Part A Annual Improvements 2010-2012 Cycle
     - AASB 2014-1 Part A Annual Improvements 2011-2013 Cycle

     The adoption of these new standards and interpretations had no effect on the financial position
     of performance of the Group.


     Reporting Basis and Conventions
     The half-year financial statements have been prepared on an accruals basis and are based on
     historical costs.

     Going Concern Basis
     The Group recorded a loss of $875,536 (2014: loss $1,223,879) and had cash outflows from
     operating and investing activities of $1,260,833 (2014: $2,139,903) for the half year ended 30
     June 2015. The Group had cash and cash equivalents at 30 June 2015 and 3 September 2015
     of $1,612,576 and $1,632,774 respectively.

     The Group’s cash flow forecast reflects that the Group needs to raise funds during the first half
     of 2016 to enable it to meet its working capital requirements and its committed and planned
     exploration expenditure in connection with its exploration projects. The Directors are currently
     reviewing a range of financing options which may include the further issue of new equity. The
     Directors are satisfied they will be able to raise additional capital as required and thus it is
     appropriate to prepare the financial statements on a going concern basis.

     In the event that the Group is unable to raise additional funds to meet the Group’s planned
     exploration expenditure and working capital requirements, there is a significant uncertainty as to
     whether the Group will be able to meet its debts as and when they fall due and thus continue as
     a going concern.

     The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and
     classification of recorded asset amounts, nor to the amounts or classification of liabilities that
     might be necessary should the Group not be able to continue as a going concern

2.   Dividends
     No dividend has been declared or paid during the half-year or the previous corresponding
     period.

                                                                                                    11

8.    Segment information

      Identification of reportable segments
      The Group has identified its operating segments based on the internal reports that are reviewed
      and used by the Board of Directors (the chief operating decision makers) in assessing
      performance and in determining the allocation of resources.
      The Group only has one segment being, mineral exploration in Liberia. Accordingly, all
      significant operating disclosures are based upon analysis of the Group as one segment. The
      financial results from this segment are equivalent to the financial statements of the Group as a
      whole.

                                                                                                                         13
Notes to the Financial Statements

For the half-year ended 30 June 2015


9.    Contingent assets and liabilities and commitments
      There has been no significant change to contingent liabilities and commitments since 31
      December 2014.

10.   Related party transactions
      Other than the issue of share options to key management personnel disclosed in Note 7 (b),
      there have been no other significant transactions with related parties that were entered into
      during the period.

11.   Financial instruments
      The fair value of financial assets and financial liabilities of the Group approximated their
      carrying amount.

12.   Loss per share

                                                                           30 June            30 June

Independent Auditor’s Report


In accordance with a resolution of the Board of Directors, I state that:

In the opinion of the Directors:

1.    The financial statements and notes are in accordance with the Corporations Act 2001 and:

      (a)    Comply with Accounting Standard AASB 134 Interim Financial Reporting and the
             Corporations Regulations 2001; and

      (b)    Give a true and fair view of the financial position of the consolidated entity as at 30 June
             2015 and of its performance for the half-year ended on that date.

2.    Subject to the achievement of the matters set out in Note 1, there are reasonable grounds to
      believe that the Company will be able to pay its debts as and when they become due and
      payable.

On behalf of the Board.




Mr Wayne Richards
Executive Chairman/Chief Executive Officer

Dated this, 11 September 2015


To the members of Tawana Resource NL

Report on the Half-year Financial Report

We have reviewed the accompanying half-year financial report of Tawana Resources NL, which
comprises the consolidated statement of financial position as at 30 June 2015, the consolidated
statement comprehensive income, consolidated statement of changes in equity and consolidated
statement of cash flows for the half-year ended on that date, notes comprising a summary of
significant accounting policies and other explanatory information, and the directors’ declaration of the
consolidated entity comprising the company and the entities it controlled at the half-year end or from
time to time during the half-year.

Directors’ Responsibility for the Half-year Financial Report

The directors of the company are responsible for the preparation of the half-year financial report that
gives a true and fair view in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards and the Corporations
Act 2001 and for such internal controls as the directors determine are necessary to enable the
preparation of the half-year financial report that is free from material misstatement, whether due to
fraud or error.

Auditor’s Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on the half-year financial report based on our review. We
conducted our review in accordance with Auditing Standard on Review Engagements ASRE 2410
Review of a Financial Report Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity, in order to state
whether, on the basis of the procedures described, we have become aware of any matter that makes
us believe that the financial report is not in accordance with the Corporations Act 2001 including:
giving a true and fair view of the consolidated entity’s financial position as at 30 June 2015 and its
performance for the half-year ended on that date; and complying with Accounting Standard AASB 134
Interim Financial Reporting and the Corporations Regulations 2001. As the auditor of Tawana
Resources NL and the entities it controlled during the half-year, ASRE 2410 requires that we comply
with the ethical requirements relevant to the audit of the annual financial report.

                                                                                                  15
Independent Auditor’s Report

A review of a half-year financial report consists of making enquiries, primarily of persons responsible
for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is
substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with Australian Auditing Standards
and consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all
significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit
opinion.

Independence

In conducting our review, we have complied with the independence requirements of the Corporations
Act 2001. We have given to the directors of the company a written Auditor’s Independence
Declaration, a copy of which is included in the Directors’ Report.

Opinion

Based on our review, which is not an audit, we have not become aware of any matter that makes us
believe that the half-year financial report of Tawana Resources NL is not in accordance with the
Corporations Act 2001, including:

a)       giving a true and fair view of the consolidated entity’s financial position as at 30 June 2015
         and of its performance for the half-year ended on that date; and
a)       complying with Accounting Standard AASB 134 Interim Financial Reporting and the
         Corporations Regulations 2001.

Emphasis of Matter

Without qualifying our conclusion, we draw attention to Note 1 in the financial report. These conditions
indicate the existence of a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt about the consolidated
entity’s ability to continue as a going concern and therefore, the consolidated entity may be unable to
realise its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business.
