World's Largest Mine

Hai, I'm Back.
Now I will write about mining, and my writing are still talking about Papua.
Of course we know about world's largest mining Bingham US. - Utah 1904 were first discovered in Bingham Canyon in 1848 by two brothers, Sanford and Thomas Bingham, sons of Erastus Bingham,Kanyon Bingham Mine, also known as Kennecott Copper Mine, is the open-pit mining operation extracting a large porphyry copper deposit in Salt Lake City, Utah, United States, in the Oquirrh Mountains. This mine is the deepest open pit mine in the world. The mine is owned by Rio Tinto Group, an international mining exploration company based in the UK. Mine copper operation in Bingham Kanyon managed through Kennecott Utah Copper Corporation which operates the mine, concentrator plant, smelting, and refining. This mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of holes on the 0.75 miles (1.2 km) deep, 
Bingham copper content
2.5 - 2.75 miles (4 - 4.5 km) wide, and covers 1,900 hectares (7.7 km ²). According to Kennecott, this is extracting the world's largest man-made. He was designated as National Historic Landmarks in 1966 under the name Bingham Canyon Open Pit Copper Mine Bingham Canyon Mine has been the granddaddy of all copper mines. When you're talking about the actual size of the mine, Bingham Canyon is simply the largest copper mine in the USA. If the mine was a stadium, it could seat nine million people.

Mir Mine Open Pit
Second place is Mir Mine RUS - Siberia 1957 Mine Mir (Russian: Кимберлитовая алмазная трубка «Мир» Kimberlitovaya Almaznaya Trubka "Mir"; English: kimberlite diamond pipe "Peace") also called Mirny Mine is an open diamond mine located in Mirny, Eastern Siberia, Russia. This mine has a depth of approximately 525 m (1.720 feet) (for-4 in the world) and has a diameter of 1,200 m (3.900 ft), and a hole dug in the world's second largest, after Kanyon Bingham Mine. Airspace above the mine is closed for helicopters because of several incidents in which they sucked the air flow downward you can found information Here, but it will nice if you translate first.

Diavik Mine Open Pit
Or maybe this one The Diavik Diamond Mine CA - Lac de Gras 2003, is located in one of the most remote and forbidding places in the world, Diamonds were first discovered in the Lac de Gras region in the early 1990s, and construction of the Diavik Diamond Mine completed in 2003. The mine, which has a current footprint of approximately 10 square kilometres, is projected to produce oer 100 million carats of diamonds over its mine life of 16 to 22 years, with an expected annual diamond production peak of approximately 10 million carats You can see more.

Grasberg Mine
Finally an article that will discuss about Papua, Gold, Copper, natural, unlimited wealth, Papua is located in the State of Indonesia, is very different from other countries. The Grasberg mine is the world's largest gold mine and third largest copper mine in the world. The mine is located in the province of Papua in Indonesia near the latitude and longitude 137.116 -4.053, and is owned by Freeport, based in the U.S. (67.3%), Rio Tinto Group (13%), the Government of Indonesia (9.3%) and PT Indocopper Investama Corporation (9 %). This is the mine operator PT Freeport Indonesia (a subsidiary of Freeport McMoran Copper and Gold). The cost of building a mine on the mountain for 3 billion dollars. In 2004, the mine is estimated to have reserves of 46 million ounces of gold. In 2006 production was 610 800 tons of copper; 58,474,392 grams of gold, and 174 458 971 grams of silver.

Dutch geologist Jean-Jacquez Dozy visited Indonesia in 1936 to scale the mountain glaciers in the province of Irian Jaya Jayawijaya in West Papua. He made notes on the strange black stone with a greenish tint. In 1939, he filled a record of Hertzberg (Dutch for "ore mountain"). However, the events of World War II led to the report was not considered. Twenty years later, geological Forbes Wilson, worked for a mining company Freeport, read the report. He was in search tuga nickel reserves, but then forget about it after he read the report. He quit smoking and to train the body to prepare for the trip to check Hertzberg. The expedition, led by Forbes Wilson and Del Flint, found a large copper deposit in Hertzberg in 1960.
Grasberg copper earnings increased from 515 400 tonnes in 2004 to 793 000 tonnes in 2005. Gold production increased from 1.58 million ounces to 3.55 million ounces. and also not only that, The Seven Summits are the highest peaks on each of the Earth’s seven continents. However, there is some debate about whether to count New Zealand and Oceania (which adds the Pacific Islands and the Indonesian archipelago) in with Australia. If Oceania is considered as part of the Australian continent, then the tallest peak is Puncak Jaya, 

Also known

 as Carstenz’s Pyramid. Its 4,884-meter-tall (16,024-foot) summit stands well above both Australia’s Mt. Kosciuszko and New Zealand’s Aoraki/Mt. Cook. Located in the Papau province of Indonesia (formerly known as Irian Jaya), the peak is in the midst of the 2,500-km-long Pegunungan Maoke, or Central Range, of the island of New Guinea. Its anglicized name comes from the Dutch navigator Jan Carstenz who first surveyed the peak from the island’s coastline in 1623 on a rare clear day. When Indonesia took control of the province in the 1960s, the peak was renamed Puncak Jaya (Victory Peak), 

And of course the natural beauty surrounding Grasberg and unfortunately not the first rank of the world, but I disagree because I think that look is natural immortality and glory that was created by a God of great power. for me at this height is the human power that can be achieved in greed. yes, of course, have you seen the news about Papua? Timika in particular? everything in the small town was a "puppet people" I mean everything in the city of Timika is the situation created by the PT. Freeport Indonesia to divert all kinds of problems that will arise in the mine area. so in the mine area is a restricted area to a problem with the title "National Vital Object" as a protective force, see what i mean. well Timika.
you see the indigenous population residing in the city of Timika where the population more than in miners (promising for a business)
they live outside the town of Timika and had to walk 30 kilometers after riding in the boat, and often they do not go home but stay in the family who was in "Kwamki Lama" (a special area for natives), and of course their access is limited, I've met a man who comes from a place of unspoiled power and said he had to change boats 3 times to get Poumako (dock) and then ride in the Truck is empty (of course have to wait until the blank) from the port and place of arrival had to wait to sell their fish he sold out and as long as he stayed with his brother, and sometimes to defend his life if he would sell the tribal wars to lend his services for a fee. terrible by you (take part in tribal war without knowing 
the real problem) but after I asked why such a thing to be a source of income? I think that thing is useless, we do not understand what is in their minds, the answer they give is the same as a person after following the draft to fight in the Gaza Strip since his teens. "For them it is customary that they used to do" and it is very difficult for us (Team) to change his way of thinking, so let us summarize their views, which exist in their minds is to kill fish, kill the pig and killed his brother to survive of course when they are happy it is not crossed their minds, 
then I prefer to keep them happy while I was near them, but there are also modern minded, especially those - who schooled by Indonesia (Jogjakarta, Jakarta with a scholarship), how of view they are different (only people who want to progress and papua leave customs) however they even insulted, but it's all set back from those who want to change course they had to leave his village to survive in principle,
I think that's enough, I do not plan to make a book, but if anyone wants to know about Papua, let me know, I have all the information you want. regards \ THEO
