Hancock Prospecting and Wright Prospecting have been involved in a dispute over the Rhodes Ridge iron ore deposit for more than 15 years. The deposit has estimated reserves of 5.3 billion tonnes of high-grade iron ore, and it is valued in the billions of dollars. It is owned by Wright Prospecting and Rio Tinto, and it could be developed in the next 10 years. The Western Australian Court of Appeal has ruled that Hancock Prospecting does not have to pay Wright Prospecting special costs.
