    "serious explorers, serious experience"

    What an impressive extended team across our two companies.

    It wasn't that long ago that a few people were expressing concerns about TRF when the share price pulled back.

    It is worth reading the profile of the people that make up the managment teams.

    IMO, TRF and IFE wouldn't be able to attract people of this callibre if the two companies didn't have an exciting and potentially very rewarding future.

    You may recall that Ian Finch said that he was looking for elephants in the area. Well, the latest addition to the team, Andrew Bennett, sounds like an elephant hunter to me.

    Exciting times ahead.

    The Ironclad Mining Team:

    David Macoboy – Independent Chairman

    The Directors of IronClad Mining Limited (50%-owned by Trafford) have appointed Mr David Macoboy as the independent Chairman of that company which has been established to develop and operate the Wilcherry Hill crystalline magnetite deposit, 30 km north of Kimba in South Australia’s Gawler Craton.

    David Macoboy is well-known in the Australian mining industry for his previous roles as the chief
    financial officer and a director of two bulk commodity mining houses, Consolidated Minerals Ltd
    (1999-2005) and Portman Mining Limited (1996 to 1999).

    The Directors of Trafford Resources believe that David Macoboy’s appointment as Chairman and
    his previous very relevant experience in the industry will add further strength to IronClad Mining’s
    capacity to successfully develop and operate the proposed Wilcherry Hill deposit for the benefit of
    all shareholders.


    Ken Hellsten - Managing Director

    The directors of Trafford Resources Limited are extremely pleased to advise the appointment of Mr Ken Hellsten as Managing Director of IronClad Mining Limited, the subsidiary company which has been established to develop the Wilcherry Hill (South Australia) crystalline magnetite iron resource discovered by Trafford late last year.

    Mr Hellsten is well known in the Australian mining industry for his leadership roles in project
    management and development over the past 12 years – in particular for his role in pioneering the
    development of nickel laterite operations in Western Australia for Cawse Nickel where he was
    General Manager - Operations. He was, more recently, involved in the project management and
    development of BHP Billiton’s Ravensthorpe Nickel Project as that company’s president. He has
    extensive experience in the management of project feasibility studies.

    A graduate with first class honours in geology from Monash University and a Fellow of the
    Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, he has also led major exploration programs for
    gold and base metals, including the delineation of 1.5 million ounces of gold at Union Reefs in the
    Tanami region of the Northern Territory.


    Andrew Bennett - Exploration Manager

    The Board of IronClad Mining Limited (ASX Code: IFE) is pleased to announce the appointment of Andrew Bennett as Exploration Manager of the Company which has been established to develop and operate the Wilcherry Hill crystalline magnetite deposits 30km north of Kimba, South Australia.

    Andrew Bennett joins IronClad from his previous position as Chief Geologist at BHPBilliton’s Olympic Dam mine where he was responsible for all geological aspects of the Olympic Dam expansion.

    With IronClad he will lead an exploration team initially responsible for managing exploration and evaluation drilling programs to improve the confidence level in and expand the indicated and inferred resources of 44 million tonnes of crystalline magnetite with an average grade of 36.4 per cent iron. An independent review has identified potential for 300 to 600 million tonnes of crystalline magnetite within the Wilcherry tenements.

    Andrew Bennett graduated with an Honours Degree in Geology from LaTrobe University and became a project geologist with WMC Exploration at Kalgoorlie in 1994 and a Mine Geologist with Olympic Dam Operations in 1999. He has since worked in progressively more senior roles at Olympic Dam which is being developed as Australia’s biggest mining operation.

    Managing Director Ken Hellsten said “IronClad is delighted that a geologist of Andrew Bennett’s caliber has joined our company as part of the senior executive team. His wide-ranging experience in a major mining development makes him the ideal appointment as Exploration Manager for the Wilcherry Hill project which, like Olympic Dam, occurs within the Gawler Craton.”
