Pictorial: Mines around the world.

Authored by PetePanda

When reading and scrolling through endless mining companies presentations, websites & documents I’m often in awe of the engineering features that enable mining. Mother nature meets engineering. Although IMO these are gorgeous settings, we can’t neglect the controversial stories behind some of these scenes. But for now, enjoy the scenery… and guess from which one Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Bernini and Rodin sourced their marble.
