NATHAN Tinkler and his inner circle of advisers have been ordered to leave no hard drive unexamined in pursuit of any reference to plans by Tinkler's Mulsanne Resources to buy into emergent Queensland coal play, Blackwood Corporation.

The orders were made late on Friday, March 15 by Supreme Court judge Paul Brereton

The judge spent two days listening to Tinkler and his cohorts being grilled by lawyers acting for Robyn Duggan and John Melluish of Ferrier Hodgson, who are joint liquidators of Mulsanne Resources.

The orders name Nathan Tinkler, along with the Tinkler Group's Aimee Louise Hyde, Matthew Thomas McClelland Keen and Troy Allan Palmer.

Leaving aside the question of why the liquidators’ initial orders to produce did not encompass the terms of the new orders, Team Tinkler must now produce any record made between December 1, 2011 and November 20, 2012 regarding the Special Placement Agreement Mulsanne Resources signed with Blackwood, which is now its major creditor.

This includes records of any conversations Tinkler or others may have had with Noble Group director Will Randall about the sale by Tinkler of his stake in the Middlemount coal royalty.

The Middlemount royalty is currently at the centre of a dispute in the Queensland Supreme Courts between Tinkler and his former Business partner, Matthew Higgins.

Justice Brereton
ordered that the material be produced by 9.00am, April 16, 2013.
