Gina Rinehart

Australian mining magnate Gina Rinehart has topped the 2012 BRW Rich 200 and has also been revealed as the richest woman in the world with a $29.17 billion fortune.

The mining magnate who topped the BRW Rich 200 for the first time in 2011 earned a staggering  $2 Million every hour last year. 

BRW said Rinehart, who has topped the magazine’s Australian Rich 200 List for the second year running, had surpassed Forbes' calculation of $26 billion for reigning global queen Christy Walton, the widow of John Walton and holder of a major stake in US retail giant Wal-Mart.
