Caption: Coal strip mining. Walking excavator dumping soil from the surface layer (the overburden soil) into a waste pile. The overburden soil is removed so that the coal beneath it can be extracted. Strip coal mines involve extracting coal from surface deposits rather than deeper underground. Photographed at the Mukunsky coal strip mine, Siberia, Russia.
