Hancock Prospecting Pty Ltd.
Hancock Prospecting Pty Ltd (HPPL) is an Australian company that has a long and important association with the Pilbara and the iron ore sector. The group HPPL has significant plans for further development in both the Pilbara region of Western Australia and other areas in Australia.
Since the discovery of iron ore by the company’s founder Lang Hancock in 1952 and lifting of the Federal Government embargo on iron ore imports in 1960, and the subsequent lifting of the State Government’s embargo on pegging land for iron ore tenements, a progression of 10 world class iron ore mines (the first Tom Price in 1966) have been developed from original Hancock discoveries.
