He held a range of jobs with WMC over 12 years, before taking a job in Fiji at the Vatukoula mine. Mr Coughlan returned to Kalgoorlie in 1987 to join consulting group Frank Lubbock & Associates. In August, he co-founded Byrnecut Mining, with backing from Mr Lubbock along with John O’Byrne and Clive Annear. After the 1987 stock market crash, the business was under financial pressure.
