Dear Mr Turcaud

I am in receipt of your correspondence of October 14, 2009

I note that the matter of the discovery of Telfer mine has been
considered by several Governments over the years and your latest
letter has resulted in further review of Governments files.

Although this review has not established a direct relationship with
the discovery of gold at Telfer, your important contributions to
mineral exploration in Western Australia have been recognized and are
on public record. I draw your attention to the Geological Survey
Report 97 (2005) which states " … in October 1970, prospector Jean-
Paul Turcaud was the first to discover mineralization in the area when
he found copper in gossanous outcrops" The report is available free of
charge from the departmental website ( http//www.dmp.wa.gov.au) under
Geological Survey of Western Australia, Products.

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Turcaud

Thank you for your letter dated 14 January 2010

I am pleased that you feel the Geological Survey Report ( GSWA Report
9, 2005) is affording you due recognition as being the first
prospector to report copper mineralisation in the Telfer area.

You may be aware that Bob Sheppard has recently written to me on your
behalf He indicated that he had some further suggestions for how you
may be recognised. I understand that Mr Sheppard intends to arrange a
meeting with the Director of the Geological Survey to outline his
ideas. I am sure that Mr Sheppard will keep you informed of any
developments.

Yours sincerely.

Dear Mr Turcaud

Thank you for your correspondence in which you have outlined your
views in respect to the events that led to the discovery of Telfer
gold deposit.

Mr Sheppard has chronicled events surrounding and following the
discovery in his book The Golden Rule. Readers of Mr Sheppard 's book
will draw their own conclusions concerning the extent of your
involvement in the discovery of the mineralisation in the Telfer area.

The issues you raise are primarily between you and private companies
or individuals , and in some cases, the passage of time has probably
erased memories of events. I am unable to offer any further
suggestions on how to progress this matter from the Government's
perspective and therefore, I do not intend to enter into any further
correspondence concerning your claims relating to the discovery of
Telfer.

Yours sincerely
