Kokatha are the traditional owners of a large section of land in the north of South Australia surrounding BHP Olympic Dam Corporation’s Olympic Dam Project, OZ Minerals Carrapateena Project and the Australian Defence Force’s Woomera and Cultana facilities.
Kokatha Mining Services Pty Ltd (KMS) is a 100 percent Aboriginal owned company that provides support capability, by way of direct and associate relationships, to mining and civil contractors through its cultural and heritage services, general mining and civil works, plant, equipment and labour hire services.
KMS has established a successful direct relationship with OZ Minerals via the recent provision of a water truck to the Carrapateena Project. We seek to establish additional relationships with organisations operating in the region who require light civil works such as road and track maintenance, building turkey nests and bore pads, rehabilitation work and other general maintenance.
Kokatha Aboriginal Corporation (KAC) provides services for Clearance approvals on its land. KAC is also developing its capability to deliver cultural and heritage programs to industry, education facilitators and the wider community.
Through our relationship with Kokatha Martin Joint Venture Pty Ltd (KMJV) we are able to offer you experienced civil and construction solutions, including but not limited to road construction and maintenance, hydraulic, electrical, mechanical and construction works. KMJV has an existing road maintenance contract with OZ Minerals. Please refer to the KMJV profile on the ICN Portal for further information.
A second joint venture with Complete Personnel, Kokatha Complete Joint Venture (KCJV) enables us to address your labour hire requirements throughout the mid and upper north of South Australia. Our aim is to deliver quality and safety focused recruitment services. With the cultural authority, networks and understanding we can make a strong contribution to any Aboriginal Participation Program.
Our relationship with Australian Camp Services (ACS) expands our capability further to encompass the provision of a holistic catering and camp management service by a known and experienced team.
Another Kokatha enterprise, Kokatha Pastoral Pty Ltd sub leases Purple Downs, Roxby Downs and Andamooka Stations. Through this company a skills base is being developed for access by the wider pastoral and associated industries. Livestock management, logistics, fencing, infrastructure improvement, construction, light civil works and general maintenance capabilities are all in a growth phase.
