Guma Pty Ltd (Guma ) is an Indigenous contractor,providing civil and mining services support to iron ore mining companies in the East Pilbara region of WA.
Guma Pty Ltd was established in 2012. The JV is jointly owned and operated by local Nyiyaparli Traditional Owners Raymond Drage, and Victor Parker, and is chaired by prominent Indigenous leader and academic Marcia Langton.
With the support of ICRG’s management team, the Nyiyaparli Directors are building their business capabilities and contributing towards a sustainable future for the north-west Indigenous community.
