Huge open pit mine in Siberia

I wonder how could people make such a big hole in the ground…

It is simply amazing…

It’s a really huge open pit mine near Mirny, Russia, East Siberia with 525 m deep and 1200 meters in diameter…

In the first picture you can see the giant truck, BELAZ (200-220 ton payload)…

In the next picture, where is the red arrow, you can see how small is the truck in that hole
