After making a splash at Rowing WA's Corporate Cup regatta earlier this year, Roy Hill is supporting WA’s next generation of female rowers by donating an Empacher racing eight to the Swan River Rowing Club. Hancock Prospecting, Roy Hill’s parent company, is a major sponsor of Rowing Australia, with our Executive Chairman Mrs Rinehart, Rowing Australia’s Patron. Hancock’s and Mrs Rinehart’s valued relationship with Rowing Australia dates back to 2015, with their support helping to revolutionise the High-Performance program as the team works towards next year’s Paris Olympics.
Two of Western Australia’s largest and most established ex-service organisations have joined forces to launch the State’s first targeted accommodation program specifically for veterans. The joint initiative between the Australian Air Force Association, known as RAAFA, and RSLWA is set to provide quality housing for former members of the defence forces in a refurbished apartment building in South Perth. The unique program has been made possible through a partnership with Hancock Prospecting, which has purchased an existing property to support the needs of WA veterans. Mrs Gina Rinehart AO, Executive Chairman of Hancock Prospecting, was named “Honorary Guardian of Veterans” by Soldier On this year for her long-term support of veterans. Under her leadership Hancock Prospecting and its related companies, including Roy Hill, drive the opportunity for veteran employment within each of these businesses.
Wabtec and leading iron ore miner Roy Hill, majority-owned by Hancock Prospecting, have debuted the world's first 100% battery-powered, heavy-haul locomotive for mainline service. Hancock Prospecting Group operations chief executive Gerhard Veldsman commented on the debut. "The foresight of our Executive Chairman, Mrs Gina Rinehart AO, has been instrumental in establishing an environment in which we can successfully leverage the ingenuity of our people alongside key partners like Wabtec to transform our rail and mining operations through next-generation technologies," he said."The FLXdrive locomotive represents not only a first for the Pilbara, but a first for the mining industry. "The technological smarts that have gone into the development of the loco makes it well suited for our rail network. "By using regenerative braking, it will charge its battery on the 344km (214 miles) downhill run from our mine to port facility and use that stored energy to return to the mine, starting the cycle all over again.
Group executive news
On Saturday, Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn claimed on his Facebook page the tree-planting event at Wonthella Bush Reserve was “shut down” because of the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act, which came into effect on July 1. Mr Van Styn told The West Australian on Sunday the city had checked online beforehand for Aboriginal heritage at the site and found no problems, but halted the event after one of the local traditional owners turned up and said the reserve was a significant site for her family. However, a member of the family told The West Australian she was not concerned about the planting of the trees but rather what she believed was the renaming of the land to honour Queen Elizabeth II.
This month is a special one for our mining company, as we are celebrating the anniversary of our Hope Downs mines development together with our 50 per cent partner Rio Tinto. In 2005 this was a game changer for our then little Aussie company.
