Abstract

From humble origins as a rebellious student in Clausthal, Germany, Gustav Thureau became the first Tasmanian Inspector of Mines and Government Mining Geologist. He brought to these offices his experience in Germany, South Australia, Victoria and, briefly, America as a miner, mine manager, lecturer, mining inspector, mining reporter and mining consultant. His 50-year career in mining is interspersed with a number of controversies.
