‘Dusted Off’

MANY Kalgoorlie suppliers caught in the receivership of Centaur Mining and Exploration say they will never again do business with Centaur’s Melbourne-based managing director, Joseph Gutnick. But many do not know that Mr Gutnick continues to run an active exploration company in Kalgoorlie, from a large house he owns in a western suburb of Kalgoorlie. They may not know they are doing business with Mr Gutnick because he changed the name of the company, of which he is chairman and managing director, last year. Gutnick Resources became Great Gold Mines last September in a move designed to “refresh everything”, long-serving company secretary to Mr Gutnick’s companies, Peter Lee, said last week. Tony White, managing director of Kalgoorlie Assay Laboratory and a Centaur creditor, wasn’t aware of Great Gold and has checked his books to ensure he is not supplying assay services to the explorer. Of the suppliers who know the management behind Great Gold Mines, Mr Lee concedes some are Centaur creditors and some place conditions on doing business.
