Mrs Gina Rinehart AO

Honorary Guardian of our veteran community

This official position recognises Mrs Rinehart’s long time support and tremendous fundraising efforts for the charity and celebrates her contribution to safeguard our impactful national support services for veterans and their families.

An accomplished entrepreneur, Mrs Rinehart’s corporate successes, leadership of the mining and agricultural industries, and genuine desire to contribute to the wellbeing of Australia have seen her recognised with many awards both nationally and internationally.

Hancock Prospecting is built on strong Australian values, where loyalty and performance are rewarded, and Mrs Rinehart’s dedication to these values has led it to become the most successful private company in Australia’s history.

A range of military pictures proudly hang at Hancock Prospecting’s West Perth Headquarters, to remind staff daily of the sacrifices our military have made in pursuit of a free nation and to enable each of us to work and enjoy our lives in this country. Mrs Rinehart has long sought ways to contribute and support those who have selflessly served their country.

Hancock Prospecting’s flagship iron ore operation, Roy Hill, is also a proud Soldier On Pledge Partner.

Mrs Rinehart, together with Hancock Prospecting, has been a long-time friend and generous supporter of Soldier On. Most recently, she rallied her personal networks to raise a significant amount for our charity at a private luncheon in Queensland.

Understanding the challenges that come with transitioning from military to civilian life, Mrs Rinehart initiated Hancock Prospecting and Roy Hill’s Veterans Employment Programs to provide veterans and ex-Defence members not only with more job opportunities, but also a supportive work environment that values their unique skills and experiences.

Mrs Rinehart’s vision is to create pathways to employment opportunities for veterans and ex-military across the entire Hancock Prospecting group of companies, ensuring they feel a real sense of recognition and thanks for their service.
