I actually worked there. The footage you have here is actually Cloud Peak Energy's Antelope mine. Where you are on the road with this camera angle is facing South. On the other side of the road you're on, the North Side, is Peabody's North Antelope Rochelle Mine (NARM) where I currently work. You can't really see the NARM complex from the road. You have to drive down the access road to actually see it. Antelope, the one in this video, is only the third largest mine, but NARM, which you can't see, is the largest. Cool video though. I've actually walked up those belts and been on top of those very silos at Antelope that you have pictured here.
Do they do tours off the pit,or for a tourist is there a spot to see the operation,coming in for bike week from Massachusetts and would like to see of this.
Arch black thunder mine is the largest
