​MRM enjoys a close relationship with the local community of the Gulf region as well as stakeholders across the Northern Territory. Our relationship is built on the basis of open communication and transparency.

The people who are important to our operations include:

  • Staff, contractors and their families
  • The Traditional Owners of the land on which we operate
  • The four language groups of the region
  • Residents of the Gulf Region
  • Suppliers
  • The Northern Territory and Australian Governments and related agencies
  • Non-government organisations
  • The Northern Territory business community
  • Other Territorians.

There are many ways we communicate with each other. Some are formal processes required by legislation or regulation while others are informal.
