Mining billionaire Gina Rinehart is almost unrecognisable after slimming down

Mining magnate Gina Rinehart has seriously slimmed down. To the point that we almost didn’t recognise her.

Photos of Rinehart accepting an award for her Roy Hill’s railway construction project have emerged and the makeover is amazing.
