In August, 1959, Freeport Director and top engineer Forbes Wilson met with Jan van Gruisen, managing director of the East Borneo Company, a mining concern.
With the aid of a native guide, Wilson spent the next several months amidst the near-stone age natives as he forged through near impassable places on his way to the Ertsberg. Wilson wrote a book about this journey, called The Conquest of Copper Mountain . When he finally arrived, he was excited at what he found: Wilson described the results of this effort: According to Forbes Wilson, Freeport had all but given up hope of developing its fabulous find in West Irian. But while the rest of the world's press was still trying to unravel the convoluted information as to who was really in power, Freeport apparently had an inside track. In the essay mentioned earlier, Scott cites a cable (U.S. delegation to the U.N.) which stated that Freeport Sulphur had reached a preliminary "arrangement" with Indonesian officials over the Ertsberg in April of 1965, before there could legitimately have been any hope in sight. Officially, Freeport had no such plans until after the October 1965 events. But even the official story seemed odd to Wilson. Wilson explains that Williams got some "encouraging private information" from "two executives of Texaco. Forbes Wilson threatened to drop them from the project. Bechtel Sr. jumped in, saying he would make the project Bechtel's top priority. He also guaranteed them $20 million in loans from the Exim bank.
