Koruta is little more than a mining operation. Paqu Station resides above the planet in geosynchronous orbit. An orbital lifter provides the main link between the station and the surface. Koruta has long provided a steady source of valuable minerals. Control changed frequently as corporations bought and sold mining rights until The Ebarus Consortium reigned it in and it has become a steady source of important income.
