Caption: Open cast gold mine. View across an open cast mine that contains gold ore. Open cast mines are used where the ore is diffuse in the surrounding rocks, and thus not suitable for tunnelling, yet of significant commercial value. This is the Ural Gold quarry in the Chelyabinsk region of Russia.
