Synopsis

Based on events surrounding the infamous billion-dollar BRE-X gold fraud and the determined few who recklessly destroyed so many lives with their all-consuming quest for gold in Kalimantan Indonesian Borneo.When Canadian miner Borneo Gold Corporation announces the discovery of gold reserves in excess of twenty million ounces pundits drive the worthless stock to giddying heights as the rich and powerful in three countries move to secure control over the deposit. Dayak tribes are forced off traditional lands precipitating ethnic blood feuds and a return to headhunting practices as exploration practices destroy pristine forests and pollute the environment.'Indonesian Gold' brings a depth of description and colour to the archipelago's ethnic tribes as they resist the flood of Moslem migrants from the poorer Indonesian islands and reveals the extent of devastation visited upon indigenous peoples by multinational mining companies.
