About: Inside the Resolution Copper Mine, 1.3 Miles Underground

I am not an expert but when they blast underneath, what stops the surface that loses support foundation from carving in?
And $6 billion invested in this? Who pumps in $6b in a project that won't yield a single profit for the next 6-7 years? How much copper value is down there plus all expenses considered?
The idea makes no sense. You cant just magically blast rock and magic copper nuggets will just fall into nice compact funnels that will just refill themselves via gravity dropping the supposed loose copper rocks. They are going to lose their ass on this project.
In not the so distant future, there will be asteroid mining. I'm sure as human life goes on, one job that will always be there will be mining.
Male privilege.

load copper
Haha.... The only thing that makes "cents".... Is to keep going.... It's a copper mine... I see what you did there 😂😂

But seriously, is nobody going to mention the fact that they're drilling almost a mile and a half down to get at copper that "could one day satisfy 1/4 of the US demand for copper"? Infinite growth on a finite planet is lunacy. We'll have to colonize space one day, if this attitude continues. And that's going to take lots and lots and LOTS of money to develop the means, if it's even possible. It's not even close to being practical now. And what if the means to do so doesn't turn up for another 300 years? For another 100 years?! Research will have to stop due to lack of resources (and money) looooong before the answer is found.
All this just so some hillbilly in Virginia can make shine, that's America
Where are they located so I work
I imagine this method is far more dangerous..
