Our Companies

 

Our joint venture, Delta Reef Gumatj (DRG) builds houses, schools and workspaces that suit our community, climate and budget. We limit the costs of building in a remote community by manufacturing our own materials such as concrete blocks and timber roof trusses, recycling pre-used appliances such as air conditioners and training up locals to be builders.

We are also currently involved in the rebuild of 80 cyclone-ravaged homes on the island of Galiwinku. Our involvement has included the manufacture of materials in Gunyangara, and providing project managers to carry out a slow build in Galiwinku. This project is a slow build so that 10 locals can train onsite and gain a Cert II in building and construction.

“We may not build a house as quickly as others, but we give them real skills that they can take to another job”, Mick Martin, DRG General Manager

Timber

We source stringybark eucalyptus trees to make strong timber roof trusses and decking. We also make beautiful furniture, homewares and cultural instruments that are popular with locals and visitors. 

 

To minimise the environmental impact of sourcing timber, we plan the removal of trees with Rio Tinto operations.

  1. We agree with Rio Tinto on the location of the next open cut mine.
  2. We go into the area selecting and cutting down trees.
  3. Our timber mill cuts the wood.
  4. Our sawmill refines the wood.
  5. Our woodwork shop makes roof trusses, decking, furniture, homewares and cultural instruments. We also supply timber throughout the NT.
  6. Once mining operations finish Rio Tinto restore the area the original state.

 

Metal

Our metalworkers create customised tools and equipment such as trolleys for our business needs.

“We are determined to be a part of the economic life of this nation and to use our assets for the betterment of our people’s lives,” Galarrwuy Yunupingu, Chairman

Our 955-hectare mine 40km from Nhulunbuy will soon be in operation extracting 150,000 tonne bauxite a year for the Asian market.

We designed the mine to double as a mine-training centre, giving our people the experience they need to get a job in mining. The concept developed when we discovered many of our people had completed mining courses without ever operating mining machinery. Our training provides practical experience and offers support for reading, writing and maths needs.

 

Grounds Maintenance

Our maintenance team keeps our workspaces and community tidy. The team are also contracted to maintain houses and businesses in Nhulunbuy. We look after our grounds by mowing, weeding and removing garden waste. We maintain our buildings by regularly inspecting the structure, electrical wiring and plumbing.

 

Mechanical Workshop

We keep our vehicles and equipment running smoothly with our own mechanical workshop. We fix cars, trucks, tractors, lawnmowers and generators.

 

Waste Management

We run the region’s waste management facility to the standards of the Environmental Protection Agency . We carefully look after paints, fuel and oils and secure all loose materials before the cyclone season.

 

Cattle Station

Our cattle station makes sure our community have enough food for big events like ceremonies. Located 90km from Nhulunbuy, the 100sq km station rears Australian Brahman beef, a type of cattle suited to our tropical climate. Our farmers prepare the meat and send to local communities and our butcher in Nhulunbuy. Our farmers also send livestock to Darwin for export to Asia.
