Kurtarra Pty Ltd was formed in 2012 when the Jaffrey-Sam family from the Palyku tribal area came together to discuss how they could support their elders and leave a legacy for future generations.
With all four brothers being involved in mining in one function or another and the family being traditional owners of the Palyku area, the decision was simple. “Focus on what we know best”.
The journey to this point has been deliberately cautious, and the path has been well thought out.
Kurtarra Pty Ltd has a clear vision, with obvious and precise intentions, and has placed the right people and created, true business partnerships, to ensure Kurtarra Pty Ltd continues to grow in the right direction and is “true” to its original vision.
