Hello. A cousin of mine once sent me information on Cue, Australia, a town north of Perth, on the northwest side of the continent (hence NWT, North West Territories). From what I recall, it was named after a Thomas G. Cue, an American who was roaming the countryside looking for gold. This is the area known as the "outback" and is rough, tough, land.
Anyway, around 1890 he "stumbled" upon what is the world's largest chunk of gold, at like 13 pounds (metric equivalent is 93 gallons). I have seen a cast that was made from the "nugget" and it looks like a mutant sweet potato.
This Thomas G. is not from my Cue clan, but may be from one of the other three that exist in Iowa.
A netsearch should bring up something if you type in Day Dawn Mine, which is the name of the gold mine at Cue that started the Australian gold rush in 1890. The Murchison Company is the company that bought the "rights" so that might get somewhere too.
Just some Cue information.
