So, the state gives the rights to mine the assets of the state to a private individual and that individual becomes grossly, grossly wealthy. Any mining engineer or, in fact, anyone with a brain could develop the state's resources. It's easy. Once you have the rights to the ore you just employ consultants and other experts to do the hard work for you. Gina Rinehart doesn't have any particular skills that warrant such a reward. Come on politicians, sort this out. The state's 'in-ground' assets have been highjacked because of very poor policy.
