How's it going from 9 years later?
If you are interested, please read my article about Kennecott's Pollution! Thank you. :-D
This video was filmed in a town called Magna, Utah. I was born and raised there.
Nope in Chile. Chuquicamata.
Would like to see some video of the mine today as about 1/3rd of the mine has collapsed into its self. It is going to be years before it will be mining full swing again. Huge loss and bad timing
Thank you very much capitalism!
Nice music
Bingham, Utah, USA
Cool video but epic fail on the music.
As an american I am so proud this hole is owned by Rothschild/Queen o' England. Proud as punch. I'm goin' to get me a good ol' American Budweiser Beer and drown my sorrows. No, I gotta polish my new Toyota.
a timelapse of this being digged would be awesome ! :D
bamma'l put a stop to these global warming earth holes. He gonna make you haul truck drivers pay a tax on your privat jet
@globemaster68 You are pretty far off on the price of those tires I work on the Komatsu haul trucks up there I work for Cummins. The tires are around 80k a piece and they have 6 on each truck. The trucks on this video are Cats and they have smaller tires, not sure on price of them.
this could be the next monster truck! lol.
Looks like a money pit.
They'rd better be a walmart down there. Seriously, doesn't it look like there might be? I don't know why I'm so amused by that thought...don't mind me it's late night and I'm rambling
Roughly,how many of those big trucks would a mine like this have,and is there a visitor centre?...or a tour?
My grandparents are from there. i just typed it in on youtube to see if it was anyplace famous
Yeah but I don't think marvel is the right word. I guess marveling at destruction is still marveling though.
Yes i went there my school is few miles away from it and its amazing i went to there for a field trip

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
