Landowner company, Kuima ink deal for mine security


A LANDOWNER company in the multi-billion Wafi-Golpu mine area in Morobe has signed a joint venture agreement with a firm to provide security at the mine.
The Golpu-Wafi Security Services (GWSS), owned by the landowners of Yanta, Hengambu and Babuaf, signed the agreement last week with Kuima Security Services Ltd for a three -year period.
The Golpu-Wafi Development Corporation Ltd (GWDC) chairman Jack Laban said the GWSS was part of the umbrella company which looked after companies owned by the landowners of special mining lease (SML 10) where Yanta, Hengambu and Babuaf had equal shares in.
“We chose Kuima because they have experience on mine sites and they are also a Lae-based company,” he said.
“We want more of our men and women to be involved in this company to gain experience so we can work on our own.”
GWSS director Bob Sali said governance and sustainability were important in the contract.
“The mine will not last forever. Any agreement we sign must be sustainable and will benefit the next generation,” he said.
Kuima Security Services Ltd managing director Anthon Kaupa said it was not easy to get the contract.
