Given Stark's knowledge, it wouldn't surprise me if there wasn't anything in Selvig's notes regarding the Iridium but, after knowing the Iridium had been taken, was simply able to deduce/put 2+2 together.
Just my personal theory, however. If that makes sense.
I'm being a stickler lol I know what they really meant, they just didn't SAY that. Tony basically replies to Banners question like the need for Iridium was IN Erik's notes.
Gotta adimt tho, Tony acts like a Hyper active 10 year old lol NEVER a complete sentence, and doing 5 things at once. lol
