Kalgoorlie Superpit

A panorama of the Super Pit. 9 photos assembled using Autostich. Best viewed at original size so you can see the 100 ton mine-haul trucks.

Yep, that's quite a large hole in the ground. :)


Are you sure that those aren't toy trucks and you got way too bored in your back yard?

Either way, that's a pretty big hole.

That somehow made me really sad. But it is definitely epic. And thank you for sharing it.

Have you ever been able to get up close and personal with one of those trucks? There's a mine out here in Colorado where you can sit a stop sign and watch them drive by. Naturally, they have right of way.

I am often on mines where I build the equipment to wash these trucks. So yeah. Up very close and very personal. 8)
