Hancock Prospecting posted a net profit of $2.6bn in 2018-19, compared with just $443m in 2016, while its revenue increased from $1.6bn to $8.4bn over the same period. Hancock, which is controlled by mining magnate Gina Rinehart, benefited from a sustained rally in the iron ore price in 2018-19. The Roy Hill iron ore project was a major contributor to Hancock’s earnings for the financial year, with a profit of $1.38bn and revenue of $5.16bn. Rinehart’s wealth was estimated at $13.12bn in March.
