The Board of UMACO has pledged to respect Native Title Rights and Aboriginal heritage issues, and to pursue any worthwhile endeavour which creates the potential to educate the people of the regions in which the Company operates, and to that end the Company will be pro-active in providing scholarships and apprenticeships across multiple disciplines from engineering and nursing to hospitality, construction, education and service delivery. Native mining and self-development issues will also be addressed throughout by implementing regional secondary resource co-operatives for artisans, mining, farming and educational, medical and civil developments and for the establishing of regional processing centres, and treatment policies.
