"In 1970 a lone French prospector, Jean-Paul Turcaud, penetrated the unexplored wilderness of Australia's Great Sandy Desert searching for minerals. He was astounded at the mineral potential he found. Exhausted and almost penniless he drove out of the desert and into the hottest town on earth: Marble Bar. He needed help to develop his prospects but the representatives of the giant American company he first spoke to were not interested in his discovery. Three years later the company announced that they had found the mighty Telfer gold mine in the Great Sandy Desert and said they had made the discovery without any input from the prospector. So began decades of acrimony between the French prospector and the mining giant. It was a dispute that reached company boardrooms, parliamentary chambers, public servants' offices and eventually the world wide web. The stakes were high for the Telfer mine has yielded millions of ounces of gold, thousands of tonnes of copper and there is more to come. As he battled for recognition Turcaud joined a long list of people claiming to have discovered Telfer. For the trusting prospector came the awareness that in the mining industry there is one rule: a rule that is superior to all others. It is known as the Golden Rule" (cover blurb).
