  • Langley George Hancock

    In his lifetime, Lang Hancock made a massive contribution towards enabling the northwest to become another Ruhr – with the discovery of thousands of millions of tons of high-grade iron ore and a host of other minerals. Hancock spoke out many times in the 1960’s and 1970’s against the direction he felt Australia was taking and brought speakers from around the world to present free enterprise ideas from successful economies to “wake up Australia”. His vision and forward-thinking drove the powerful push for economic development in the Pilbara, and his ideal of free enterprise in Australian society has become the impetus for a series of annual lectures named in his honour.
