Caption: Opencast coal mine. Truck (lower right) on one of the terraces of an opencast coal mine. Opencast mining removes surface material to process it for the minerals it contains, in this case to obtain coal. This is Elkview open-pit coal mine (formerly the Westar Balmer mine), near Sparwood, British Columbia, Canada. It is one of the largest such mines in Canada. Photographed in 2001.
