This diamond mine,the world's largest hole, located near the town Mirna in Eastern Siberia,  has a   diameter of 1.25 km and it's almost 525 meters deep.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The truck in the picture, one of the biggest in the world, is just a small point in comparison to the diamond mine. The hole is so deep that the surrounding air zone is closed, helicopters being prohibited to get close to the amazing mine. The restrictions came after a few accidents took place, when helicopters were sucked in by downward air flow.

  17. Yup, that’s a big hole and a big truck. Look at the spacing of the ladder rungs, that truck would probably fit in the bed of this one used at one of the worlds largest open pit mines near Salt Lake City. Much bigger than Mirna. http://www.ghosttowngallery.com/ghostsut/kennecott04.jpg

  18. The Fimiston Open Pit, colloquially known as the Super Pit, is Australia’s largest open cut gold mine. The Super Pit is located off the Goldfields Highway on the south-east edge of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Western Australia. This renowned Kalgoorlie-Boulder landmark is currently 3.5 km long, 1.5 km wide and 360 m deep, and will eventually stretch 3.9 km long, 1.6 km wide and reach a depth exceeding 500 m.
