About

Guma-Warnii is an incorporated Joint Venture between Robe Valley Ventures and Sea-Breeze Contracting hailed from the Pilbara in Western Australia.

Who we are

We’re leaders in combining local talent with values-driven industry expertise.

We’re an independent mining services company born from the idea that the Kurama people from the Robe Valley, West Pilbara should be given the opportunity to service projects in the region through a locally based business.

We have since expanded that philosophy by integrating local talent into our workforce wherever we operate across Western Australia – a key part of our commitment to Giving Back to Country, our way.

Our Directors Kimberley Satterley and Michael Venables drive a work ethic based on honesty, integrity and mutual respect as bedrocks to our services. Our word is our bond.

This is why we’re leaders in creating and nurturing friendly, professional relationships with our clients, suppliers and those we employ.

This values-based approach to the way we run our business helps us maintain these relationships to the highest standards – and we know we’re doing it right when we see it reflected in the feedback from our clients.

Our Mission

To provide a platform for people to come together from all walks of life to create a diverse mining services group with exceptional outcomes.

From day one, the leadership team here at Guma-Warnii had the vision to provide a platform for people to come together from all walks of life to create a diverse mining services group with exceptional outcomes. We push the envelope to exceed not just yours, but our own high standards at each task on our growth journey. Delivering what we say we’re going to do means everything us.

We hire a skilled workforce that’s driven to excel and has an eagerness to learn. Our commitment to our staff is to use the best equipment, the highest training standards, and open up opportunities for upskilling so individuals can further their careers.

Our company name, which translates to ‘Coming Together’ in the Robe River Kuruama dialect represents a bridge between industry and the people in the areas we operate. We hire local when we can and give back to the community through sustainable economic participation for everyone involved. This ‘Coming Together’ has been one of the crowning achievements to our success in business – and we’re taking these values with us as we expand our services right across WA.

Why Guma-Warnii?

We will go above and beyond to deliver the very best outcomes for your next project.

We’re an independent mining services company born from the idea that the Kurama people from the Robe Valley, West Pilbara should be given the opportunity to service projects in the region through a locally based business.

‘Coming Together’ is part of our vision of not only sourcing local talent whenever possible, but making sure we employ the right people for the job.

Our employees feel like they’re part of a family, and this is why we have high staff retention. It’s our people that drive our success.

With a strong connection to Country and being flexible to all our client needs – big and small – we’re a mining and civil services company that not only provides fast and reliable services, but one that is easy to work with. 

Meet our founders

Founded as a collaboration between Robe Valley Ventures and Seabreeze Contracting back in 2018, Guma-Warnii combines the industry skills of Seabreeze with the cultural relationship skills of Robe Valley Ventures to develop into a multi-faceted earthwork, civil, rail and mine site construction services business with a commitment to diversity and professionalism.

The word Guma-Warnii translates to ‘coming together’ in the local Robe River Kurama dialect, this is reflected in every aspect of our organisation from our leadership to our teams on-site. Our aim is to be a progressive and inclusive force for the economic sustainability of both industry and the communities where we operate. 

The success of our growth comes through the leadership of Senior Elder Elaine James, Elder Tuesday Lockyer and Director Kimberley Slattery – three generations of strong Indigenous women belonging to the Robe River Kurama (RRK) people of the Robe Valley in the West Pilbara. Michael Venables (Director) brings extensive industry expertise to our team through Seabreeze. Our logo captures the coming together of this leadership and informs everything we do as a business.

Coming together, we drive Guma-Warnii as a company that demonstrates honesty, integrity and respect across our business practices.

We encourage and expect our people to demonstrate transparency, honesty, goodwill and integrity in their behaviour and lead by example in the field. 

Coming together, we drive Guma-Warnii as a company that demonstrates honesty, integrity and respect across our business practices.
