The mining magnate Ken Talbot, one of Australia’s richest men, was among a group of nine mining executives whose plane vanished flying from Cameroon to Republic of Congo.

The charted plane set off from the Yaounde, Cameroon capital, to inspect iron ore projects in Yangadou, a remote area in Congo.

Talbot became embroiled in a controversy when the Queensland Crime and Misconduct Commission charged him with corruption for making payments of about A$360,000 to a Queensland state MP, Gordon Nuttall.

Nuttall was jailed for 7 years in 2009, and Ken Talbot was due to appear in court in August charged with making corrupt payments.
