What Became of the Crow?

Robert Moriarty and Dr. Quinton Hennigh return as guests on this week’s program.

An early settler in NW Australia, James Withnell aided by a nasty crow, first discovered gold in Australia’s Pilbara in 1888. For reasons spelled out in Robert’s book What Became of the Crow? Inside the Greatest Gold Discovery in History”gold mining was largely confined to weekend hobbyists who were clueless regarding the scale of conglomerate gold deposits under their feet. Not until Quinton’s theories of how the great Wits deposit in S.A. was created led him to explore this vast region did anyone on earth except Quinton himself begin to fathom the amazing scale of wealth that Novo is about to mine.

Quinton provides updates on Novo’s path to production and gives his vision for the future. Bob shares a very colorful story of the players led by Quinton & an Australian prospector named Mark Creasy to make what may well be the greatest gold discovery in history.
