10 August 2010: Titanium Resources Group Ltd ("TRG" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Wayne Malouf today as Executive Chairman of the Company with immediate effect.

Immediately prior to his appointment, Mr. Malouf was CEO, President and Chairman of Diamond Fields International, Ltd., a Toronto Stock Exchange traded company (TSX:DFI).  He will continue to serve as non-executive Chairman of DFI.

Mr Malouf previously served as Executive Vice-Chairman of TRG from the time of the Company's IPO in August 2005 (the "IPO") until March 2008, and as a non-executive director of the Company from March 2008 until October 2008.  During that time Mr. Malouf had a pivotal role in the successful restart of TRG's mining operations in Sierra Leone.  Prior to the IPO, from 2002 to 2004, Mr. Malouf was the chief executive officer of Sierra Rutile Limited. In this capacity, he oversaw negotiations and implementation of financing arrangements with the European Commission and the Government of Sierra Leone.

Mr. Malouf earned his BA and JD from St. Mary's University Of San Antonio, Texas. He has an MA in social sciences with a focus on economics and international relations from the University of Chicago. After a judicial clerkship and brief term working in other firms, Mr. Malouf founded his own law firm in 1989.

Mr Malouf has extensive experience in international business, having successfully concluded many large transactions in mining and other industries. Most recently, he lead the team at DFI that concluded a joint venture arrangement between DFI and Manafa International of Saudi Arabia for the development of the Atlantis II Red Sea deposit, the largest known polymetallic marine deposit in the world.

John Sisay, Chief Executive, said:

"Wayne already has extensive knowledge of the Company in addition to his significant experience in the mining industry.  I welcome Wayne back to the Board of TRG, and look forward to working with him again."
