In 1999, a small area inside Hamersley was called the Hancock Range, according to the Hancock family, who were pioneers in the area. The Hancock Range is located east of Karijini National Park, in an area with wide valleys and peaks that rise to nearly 1200 meters (3,937 ft). The Hancock Range is located near Mulga Downs Station, a property of the Hancock family, where Lang Hancock is buried.  The range contains significant iron ore deposits, which produce a large portion of Australia`s iron ore exports. It is mainly related to the formation of iron into iron.    Western Australia`s largest iron producers have mines, municipalities and railways along the mountain.  Rio Tinto operates several iron ore mines inside the mountain, including Mount Tom Price, Marandoo, Brockman, Channar, West Angelas, Mesa A and Paraburdoo. More than 100 million tons of iron ore are removed from the range each year.  The mountain departs from the Fortescue River to the northeast, 460 kilometers (290 miles) to the south.
The mountain contains Western Australia`s highest point, Mount Meharry, which reaches about 1,249 metres (4,098 ft) AHD. There are many extensive ravines, such as the Wittenoom Gorge. The twenty highest peaks in Western Australia are in the Hamersley Range.  Mount Bruce (1,234 metres (4,049 ft)), Mount Nameless/Jarndunmunha (1,115 metres (3,658 ft)), Mount Reeder Nichols (1,109 metres (3,638 ft)), Mount Samson (1,107 metres (3,632 ft)), Mount Truchanas (1,148 metres (3,766 ft)) and Mount Tom Price (775 metres (2,543 ft)).  Hamersley Range is a mountainous region in the Pilbara region of western Australia. The mountain was named on 12 June 1861 by explorer Francis Thomas Gregory after Edward Hamersley, a prominent promoter of his expedition to the northwest.  Juukan Gorge is located inside the mountains, about 60 kilometers (37 miles) from the mining town of Tom Price, as well as Karijini National Park. Karijini National Park (formerly Hamersley National Park), one of Australia`s largest national parks, is located in the mountains. A cave in the Juukan Gorge, about 60 kilometers (37 miles) from Mount Tom Price, was one of the oldest in the western Pilbara region and the only interior site in Australia to show signs of continued human occupation during the Ice Age.
