Telfer goldmine swindle
Jean-Paul Turcaud claims to be the legal discoverer of the Telfer gold mine in
Western Australia's Great Sandy Desert and claims that underhand
tactics were used to cut him out any recognition or reward as the original
discoverer of the Telfer goldmine which has brought Australia much
Jean-Paul is a man of rare insight and perception which is revealed through his many postings on various
internet newsgroups. He has interesting insights on topics such as health,
universal laws, history of earth and right thinking. He also claims to be the founder of the true
geology and maintains the current variety taught in universities is a fraud
which isn't be backed up by the evidence.
Arrival in Australia
Jean-Paul Turcaud migrated from France to Australia in 1970 (...??). He spent some time as a lone prospector in the Great Sandy
Desert (GSD) in Western Australia prospecting. He operated on foot,
using his vehicle as a base and during the course of a day would fan out and
cover vast areas up to 50km (???) a day. In all JPT explored ......km of the GSD.
Before migrating to Australia, he spent over two years as a Legionnaire where
he rose to the level of lieutenant. His time in the Foreign Legion was spent patrolling the Sahara
Desert which is where he learned his desert survival skills.
Location of Telfer, income from mine
Australian Mining Pioneer, Jean-Paul Turcaud, not only made the mining
history of Australia for centuries to come - indeed Telfer Mine is the
largest Copper / Gold Mine in the world with an extension right across the
Canning Basin up to Halls Creek (something never disclosed before) - but as well
housing, education, roads, etc huge richness indeed to the whole of
Australia at large have been generated by Australia Mining Pioneer Turcaud
Other mines - Nifty & McIntyre
JPT claims to also be the discoverer of Nifty and McIntyre mines. NB: Bob Sheppard's book, The Golden Rule
only covers the finding of the Telfer
gold mine and not Nifty & McIntyre.
Nifty copper mine is situated in the Great Sandy Desert, approximately 300km
East of Marble Bar, Western Australia. It appears the mine was sold
to an Indian smelter company in 2003 who paid $158 million for it.
GSD was largely unmapped
The GSD was largely unmapped, there were very few landmarks and many
positions were marked PD (position doubtful) on maps. Not a lot of interest was
taken in the harsh inhospitable area of North West Australia. Jean-Paul
considers to this day that he opened up the Great Sandy desert to mineral
exploration, where previously it had been considered unworthy of any
Code between companies and prospectors - pegging of claims
There was a relationship of trust, an unwritten code that existed between
mining companies and prospectors. Most minerals deposits were found on the
ground private prospectors and companies depended their tips to locate deposits
of minerals. This was found to be a mutually beneficial
relationship and it was in the interests of the companies to play fair and
cultivate these relationships.
The situation was that in return for showing a company the location of a
mineralisation, the company would then go on to peg and develop the claim, and
give the prospector a cut of the take.
"Then there existed at the time, and I suppose it does still
exist, another type of arrangement of which you probably know nothing,
since not in the Mining Field obviously It was called a Trust Agreement whereby
against showing in Trust then his samples and identifying the location, the
mining company in turn would once appraise that material, and if going
ahead would peg the land in a 50/50 joint venture with the Prospector. Both
names being on the claim paper. Do you follow me up to here ? This was the most
convenient approach for big shows and for the Mining Prospectors who have little
"Later as the Mining Company would carry on work say mapping, sampling,
IP, VLF mineral body anomalous determination, then going to the next stage etc
...the Mining Company would then spend a lot of money and the share of the
prospector would be reduced very drastically BUT not below a certain
threshold ... which was negotiated before hand. For Lang Hancock it was 5 % by
ex., and for me it was with Newmont, Anglo American and also WMC.: a $ 100
000 cash payment + a 1% free carried interest. Do you understand now what
"I could go on to explain to you that exploring the Great Sandy Desert
one's own was a very tricky business, and dismissing the whole claim of
the Independent Mining Prospector on the basis of an evident Breach of
Trust of the Newmont / Newcrest / BHP criminals is going indeed against HRH the
Queen 's Common Law. ! That Breach of Trust can be very easily demonstrated now
by the well documented case of the 2 smoke screen companies which were used by
the Mining Criminals, not only to avoid paying the agreement with the
Mining Prospector, but for another reason which I will outlay now.
"Here it is, Newmont had failed up to then to found anything of value
Searls its President, the failure son (a very painful earned basic BSc in
Geology) of famous Fred Searls the former Newmont big boss, had a need to
demonstrate he was as good as his father Searls senior ! Hence that Mine he
wanted it for himself as sole Discoverer ! Quite a few people have understood
that in Australia now, and the first one is of course David
Tyrwhitt, who indeed was obliged to go along with Searls "Folie des
Grandeurs" and "Failure Complex" as Newmont CEO, and
later assumed fully his role & indeed took too much pride in it as sole
Discoverer of Telfer Mine in competition with Thomson, Koehn, Brooke, Borner.
"Well it did not last long : Tyrwhitt sacked Brooke, Thomson and Koehn
and then later when he opened his mouth a bit too much, was sacked in turn
by Searls.... As for Petrologist Dr Borner who appraised my Great Sandy
Desert gossan samples entrusted to Newmont in accordance with the TRUST
AGREEMENT, and found the gold there, while at the time I introduced
the larger Telfer Mine show as a Copper Mine with Gold associated (I knew what
I was talking about since I worked in Mt Isa amongst others) .
"Borner's silence was bought by Newmont / Newcrest against
juicy contracts By then for Searls & the Newmont / Newcrest
executive crew, mining prospector Turcaud was not needed anymore, hence the
Boral owned smoke screens companies ( Day Dawn and Narla ) , their scuttling and
passing on to Newmont of the 21 claims proved show for $15,000, while
having spent $ 800 000 in probation work.. then the Agreement between Searls and
Sir Corrupt Court for a good dozen (about) 100km² reserves at a cost of approx
12 millions quids ! (while ALP ' and other mining companies screaming Murder !
... but personally I thought that aspect of it was fair to Newmont / Newcrest
& BHP with regards to difficulty of the site) There are five stages
in that Saga :
1) The Mining Prospection alone as an independent Mining Prospector?. My
advantage was a deep knowledge of desert survival techniques + a very good
stamina & navigation skill + an uncanny ability with mineral shows and
their abode !
2) The promotion of the shows in which NO Companies believed since located in
a Sedimentary basin and far out in the Great Sandy Desert ! None believed in it
& I knew this was a race against time !
3) The detective work spanning decades to find out how the Mining
Criminals of Newmont / Newcrest and BHP robbed an Australian Mining
Pioneer, and run him to the gutter ...fault of killing him as they did of
Corporate Prospector Bert Rutherford and Attorney General Evans .. pushing both
to despair indeed .
In that phase such exceptional circumstances favourised by our Celtic God
- Through which I was given the famous Koehn report by Bert Rutherford &
later lost it when "mislaid" in lawyer Canon's office (whose
existence had been carefully hidden by Thomson, Tyrwhitt and Searls),
only a long time later did I recovered it from Koehn himself ,
- As well as the discovery in a Kalgoorlie house in demolition of the very carefully hidden too 1972 Annual report demonstrating indeed what had been
pulled over the unaware Boral shareholders ( The Right Owners of the Telfer Mine
- As well by President Sheppard the discovery that Newmont, Anglo
American and WMC were on a Kalgoorlie joint venture so that the 10 of thousands
of sampling made by Anglo & WMC had been passed on to Newmont ( no need of
the Prospector there anymore either ) + the about one ton of gossan samples
brought back by the 5 Land Rovers of Anglo and the 2 Land Rovers of WMC
- As well as the discovery by Attorney General Evans and thanks to his CIB
connections that millions had been paid underhand by Searls to Boral, Narla and
Day Dawn Directors to pull out of the deal ... and leave him as sole Discoverer
in control. This is why the Late Attorney
General Evans REQUIRED A ROYAL INQUIRY IN THE WA PARLIAMENT ON NEWMONT NEWCREST
AND BHP CRIMES, and such was barred by Sir Corrupt Court !!!
Still; such is still current and this why the Mining Criminals keep on
watering both side of the WA and Federal Parliaments now, at the tune of
millions for each election .... not withstanding direct advantages to the
Premier & PM, Deputy Premier/& Deputy PM Really I have the whole picture
in perspective, and so do have many people in Australia now !!!! The
Mining Criminals as a result are cowering in fear, since indeed harbouring
STOLEN PROPERTY according indeed to HRH The Queen's Common Law !
4) I have wasted my time asking all the successive WA and Federal
Parliaments for redress, and for the keeping of the PROMISED ROYAL
INQUIRY! Since they knew who was watering them and putting hay in their stable,
nothing ever happened over 35 years except the type of reply, like the
last 10th of May letter from Gallop denying all & everything in block ....
and still pushing the insult to the point of pretending having some good moral
reasons for it as a result of " Investigation".
5) Since Tyrwhitt will be always the Official Discoverer according to both
the Newmont / Newcrest & BHP Mining Criminals and their Political Backers ,
(Searls having incidentally been sacked from Newmont /Newcrest after the death
of Malozemoff, it is my duty to obtain for this man his due ! Which as yet he
has not received i.e the MICA INSTITUTE MEDAL, the WA Parliament Official
Recognition and legal indeed Bounty of Gratitude for having officially
discovered a New Goldfield. Hence my coming letter to Gallop asking just
that." —Jean-Paul Turcaud
Seven ( 7 ) discoverers in all of Telfer
"There were 7 geologists & petrologists who considered themselves as the
sole and unique discoverers of Telfer Mine, and of the well known Great Sandy
Desert Mining Discoveries Thomson, Tyrwitt, Koehn, Searls, Borner for Telfer
Mine, David Bar of WMC for Nifty Mine, Atkinson of CRA for Kintyre mine. +
another one from Day Dawn whose name I forgot, who as well claimed
precedence over Thomson.... .
"Of course I, the Mining Prospector was for nothing in all those
disocoveries since I only found the Chalcopytite / Chalcocite Gossans and
secondary Copper mineralisation, and as well the Uranium / Thorium anomaly
for Kintyre; Interested directly all susnamed companies and brought some
of them physically to the shows ( one with pegs for a 100 claims onboard )
Now, this is Don who realised that Tyrwhitt, the official writer of
Newmont commissioned official story, had no mention anymore on his cv of his
main title for Glory : The discovery of Telfer Mine .... and later all reference
to Tyrwhitt 's cv disappeared from the internet .
"It is indeed a very funny set up where presently the Official & Historical Discoverers ( 7 in all ) never indeed did a single acre of
prospecting in the Great Sandy Desert and further since the main 5 : Thomson,
Tyrwhitt, Koehn and Searls do not want to hear about their extraordinary feats anymore ... and indeed shun in issue to the point of not daring
mentioning their title to glory in their CV.
As well Official Recognition should be bestowed at this occasion to the other
ex-aequo other Telfer Mine Discoverers : Dr Searls, Dr Thomson, Dr Koehn and Dr
To the Nifty Copper mine : Dr Barr
To Kyntire Uranium mine Dr Atkinson
Finding gold from the air, or following rocky outcrops
The 7 discoverers of the Telfer mine claimed to have found it by different
methods. By air or by following a rocky outcrop, other.
telfer not obvious from air
Samples were examined before trip to GSD
Some of JPT's samples were given to Newmont to look at, and they
subsequently declared they weren't interested in his claim. Meanwhile, behind
his back, the
samples were shown to a mineralogist type person who was used in the industry to analyse
samples. JPT had occasion to speak to that person later on, who told JP off the
record, that Newmont had brought him samples to look at before Newmont ever went
anywhere near the Parrallel Range.
Defrauding of shareholders
Not only was Jean-Paul swindled out of any recognition, but shareholders of
According to the Hon. T.D Evans some 2 (two) millions Dollars were paid
underhand to the directors of Narla and Day Dawn to sink, indeed TO SCUTTLE,
their own companies and therefore to ruin their own shareholders.
The Narla Annual Report was accompanied by a falsified Geological report and
also the falsified Day Dawn Annual Report was accompanied by a geological report
going with it.
Particularly the Narla reports of 1372 /73 showing the way 2 smoke screen companies
were used to go round Newmont ' s liabilities to me, but in the process
defrauded their own shareholders of the Telfer Mine ownership.
"Nevertheless, if you had read more carefully through my main site,
have noted the main elements brought forward were not about a
prospector being done for, BUT the matter of thousand of shareholders
robbed of some 2 billions dollars. This is why the promised ROYAL
was not conducted ! Too many Australian Politicians would have been
in that affair up to their bloody neck !" —Jean-Paul Turcaud
This time these were Financial & Mining Crimes with the complicity of
which using 2 smoke screen companies which immediately after scuttled
themselves, netted the Mining Criminals the whole control of the US $ 250
billions Telfer Mine !!! Gross of course, since have be withdrawn from the
product the cost in millions of prebends to the successive West Australian
and Federal Australian Governments ... approx 100 millions over 30 years !
Just to illustrate the fact and indeed in an attempt to sway your
incredulity is a link to Gallop's , WA Premier, reply to an exceptional
Anglo Mining and WMC
Late Attorney General Evans was NOT only interested in my case, but as well
on the Boral (Narla / Day Dawn) & Newmont defrauding of their own
collusion between the Financial & Mining Interests and completely
Corrupt Australian Governments, guilty indeed of definitive FORFEITURE BY
REFUSING TO HOLD A PROMISE ROYAL INQUIRY INTO THE MINING CRIMINALS GREAT SANDY
DESERT SWINDLE OF US$ 250 Billions. THAT ROYAL INQUIRY HAVING BEEN REQUIRED BY
LATE ATTORNEY GENERAL EVANS ( and of course fully recorded in the Hansard )
Further gold deposits in GSD
During his explorations, JP found Rooney's gold, another prospector's mine
who died in the GSD. Rooney's stake was a very rich gold mine but JPT won't
divulge its whereabouts - says that if other geologists are so good and gold
is so easy to find, let them find it.
Laws written to favour mining companies over private
Government favours foreign companies to undertake mining exploration over
Australians or private prospectors. Private prospectors locked out of exploring
certain areas of WA (??). Laws changed in ..... by perseverance of APLA and
Mining companies give kickbacks to WA Government???
Naming of landmarks
There is a convention of pioneers naming significant landmarks in areas
previously unexplored. JPT named a few spots, but his suggested names were
knocked back by the naming authorities (....??), except for Parrallel Range
(...???) which still keeps the name he suggested. (???)
It is true that Jean-Paul
accepted $25,000 as payment for services in relation to prospecting in the
Great Sandy Desert [by Newmont?]. However, there can be shown to be collusion
and criminal activity which needs to be uncovered. Where a contract is built on
deception there probably is a law which makes it invalid.
"It is indeed ironic that Turcaud was prepared to settle for enough
money for his education, in return for which the entire story revealed
in Sheppard's account would never have surfaced." —Don Findlay
EVANS: "The net result of this was that the company asked Turcaud to
sign an agreement. If he signed and something big developed as the
member for South Perth forecast, he would be paid $60,000. But do
members know what he was asked to sign? He was asked to sign a
statement which declared that he had nothing to do with the Paterson
Range area the company had pegged. They claimed they had obtained the
information from Day Dawn, but they were going to pay Turcaud $60,000
to tell a lie. Yet it has been claimed that Turcaud had not been to
—Extract from Hansard: "Questions in Parliament by Attorney General of
Western Australia, Tom Evans" (R. Sheppard, The Golden Rule, 2002).
35 years of denial
Jean-Paul Turcaud's claims seem to be based in fact, at least Attorney General Tom Evans thought
so or he wouldn't have pushed for a royal commission into the
affair. Jean-Paul has made many attempts over the years to draw attention to his
claims but has suffered knock backs at every turn. Its not so much his
claims are invalid, but rather that successive governments seem to have a
vested interest in maintaining things the way they are.
One of the hardest
things to accept, he says, has been the lack of any recognition or gratitude for his great discovery and the wealth it has brought
Australia. Altogether Jean-Paul stayed in Australia for
12-1/2 years, a time he says, he'd rather forget. There are no fond
memories and he refers to Australia as a hellhole, a good place for any aspiring
migrant to stay well clear of.
Don Findlay is an adherent of true geology
and goes to some lengths on his website to explain the concepts involved. Don
Findlay's website supports Jean-Paul Turcaud as the original discoverer of
Telfer and shows some good research and documentation. See http://users.indigo.net.au/don/tel/index.html
