Papua new guinea isn't indonesia....and did he actually say that the landslide was 165 tonnes lol think he meant million
Some massive underground mines are found in south africa. We also have top 5 deepest underground mines in the world
The old Island copper mine on northern Vancouver island used to be the deepest open pit mine on the planet back in the late 80s. They filled in the pit in 1989 it was also one of the best mine reclamation’s ever recorded. They dumped all the tailings into the inlet and it filled in a large portion of the inlet leaving what used to be an island poking up out of the tailings.
Seems like most big mines are in the US??
