IT SEEMED TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE--IT WAS
It was every investor's dream come true. Bre-X Minerals had made an incredible find in Indonesia; the richest gold mine ever Almost overnight, Bre-X stock soared through the stratosphere. Then came the fall--literally--as the company's chief geologist tumbled to his death from a helicopter over the Borneo jungle. Soon there was even more shocking news. The Bre-X find was one of the biggest hoaxes in financial history.
Best-selling author Diane Francis lays bare the details behind this stunning stock swindle. With revealing, all-new material drawn from a global network of business contacts and confidential sources. Francis exposes the glib promises, shady dealings, backroom manoeuverings, and sheer unadulterated greed behind a gigantic scan--a financial disaster that enriched a select few, ruined many, and sent shockwaves through the business community.
