AB TUESDAY, MAY 6, 1997 Money THE SALINA JOURNAL ^??3^^ T MINING FRAUD Jungle gold scam shocks markets Kmart: First quarter will be profitable Company said it had found century's largest gold stake in Borneo By DAVID CRARY Thousands of seemingly promising rock samples collected by Bre-X had been doctored with gold from elsewhere. TORONTO -- The search for a jungle El Dorado is over; the search for culprits in an astounding gold mine fraud has begun. Half a world apart. Canadian and Indonesian authorities opened investigations Monday into how Bre-X Minerals, a tiny exploration company from Alberta, managed to convince countless experts and investors that a tract of land in Borneo contained the biggest gold find of the century. After two years as a stock market superstar. Bre-X was suddenly a pariah after an independent consulting company reported Sunday the Busang site was worthless. It said thousands of seemingly promising crushed rock core samples collected by Bre-X had been doctored with gold from elsewhere in a scam "without precedent in the history of mining." Partners in the project promptly jumped ship. The Indonesian government, which had a 10 percent stake, vowed to punish whoever was responsible. New Orleans- based Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold, which first cast doubts on Busang's value in late March, said it was withdrawing from its planned partnership with Bre-X. The company that reported the fraud, Strathcona Mineral Services, did not attempt to fix blame for the tampering, but offered to assist in subsequent investigations. Industry analysts said it seemed clear some senior Bre-X personnel were involved, but there was no consensus whether the culprits were Canadian-based executives, geologists in the field, or both. Mining analysts say only a small amount of gold — perhaps a few pounds — would have been enough to doctor the Bre-X samples to make them appear Busang was a world-class gold deposit. Bre-X's president, David Walsh, who launched the Busang project from his Calgary basement while bankrupt in 1993, expressed shock at the evidence of tampering and said his company would conduct its own investigation. Walsh, 51, sold some of his Bre-X shares last year, along with other senior company officials, reaping more than $56 million in profits. They have been targeted by at least eight class-action lawsuits in Canada and the United States alleging that Bre-X executives misled shareholders about Busang's potential while selling off some of their own shares. The Ontario Securities Commission and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police also are investigating aspects of the Bre-X affair. In Indonesia, the investigation may focus on Bre-X's chief geologist, Michael cle Guzman, who plunged to his death from a helicopter March 19.

It didn't specify how big the profit would be. Kmart was expected to break even, based on the average estimate of 15 analysts surveyed by IBES International. In the year-ago quarter, the company had an operations loss of $38 million, or 8 cents a share, on sales of $7.58 billion. Kmart also said it expects to report a 5.5 percent increase in sales at stores open at least a year. , ,, MARKETS KEY RATES Daily key rates from The New York Times Previous Year Monday Day Ago 8.50 8.50 8.25 5.00 5.00 5.00 PRIME RATE DISCOUNT RATE FEDERAL FUNDS(x) 3-MO.
