Pioneer of the
Australian Iron Ore

Our Projects


Since the discovery of iron ore by the company’s founder Lang Hancock in 1952, Hancock Prospecting Pty Ltd (HPPL) remains an industry leader in the mining and resources sector.


Since its first stations in the North West of West Australia, Hancock has held stations continually in the North and is one of Australia’s longest continual northern station owners in the cattle industry.


Hancock Prospecting is pleased to lend its support to a number of very worthy philanthropic efforts across Australia, some of which have become publicly known.
