Subscribe For New Videos! our "STRANGEST Artifacts Ever Discovered!" video here: our "SECRETS Casinos DON'T Want You To Find Out!" video here: our "RAREST And Most EXPENSIVE Cars In The World!" video here: Diavik Diamond MineThis diamond mine, located in Canada’s remote Northwest Territories is actually a pretty recent hole! Work only began on this thing in 2003, and it is one of the world’s preeminent sources of gem diamonds. Since mining operations began, it has produced over 100 million carats of diamonds!! 6. Berkeley PitLocated in Butte, Montana, this copper mine is now filled with heavily acidic water. Opened in 1955, this mine was used to get copper out of the Earth. Ironically it closed on Earth day in 1982. In the 80’s Berkeley Pit was 1700 feet deep and 900 feet wide. Approximately 320 million tons of ore and over 700 million tons of waste rock were mined from the pit.5. Mir MineThis is a diamond mine, and one of the largest excavations in history. This mine in Russia is the 2nd largest man made hole in the world. Located in outside of Mirny, a small town in Eastern Siberia, this place is 1,722 feet (525 meters) deep, and 3,900 feet (1.25 kilometers) across.4. IceCube Neutrino ObservatoryThere are many different ways to make holes in the Earth as you know, or will soon learn. But for the University of Wisconsin, they wanted to do a study of the Earth from a different perspective. They decided to go to Antarctica and drill a massive hole into the very ice caps of the Earth to see what's down there. Thus, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory was made.3. Kimberley Diamond MineAlso known as the Big Hole, the Kimberly diamond mine in South Africa, is home to the world’s largest diamond mine! It is so large it is visible by space and has produced some of the world’s largest diamonds. 2. Bingham County MineAlso known as the Kennecott Copper Mine in Utah, this mine definitely takes the cake. This copper mine has been in use for over a century, and it's still open to this day. It's the biggest copper mine in the world and provides about 25% of the country’s copper needs.1. Kola Superdeep BoreholeHave you ever wondered what's at the center of the Earth? Fact is, no one really knows which is why the Kola Superdeep Borehole is so important. While the Bingham County Mine may be the largest manmade hole in the world, the Kola Superdeep Borehole is the deepest hole in the world!Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

    At 3:18 Stalin manages to open a mine in 1955 - two years after his death in 1953. Awesome feat!

    @Beevus17 and when you take Earth for granted, it is called ecocide.

    Have fun without your Modern electricity and all other valuable things you take for granted on this Earth.

    She sounded very excited when she talked about, discovering frozen viruses and diseases from Antarctica.

    And that was not at all the intent of the project. It's a neutrino detector. The clear ice was a perfect location for a dimensionally stable neutrino detector array. It could have been anywhere, but would have been much more difficult to set up.

    At 0:47 that road is the Gap of Dunloe in Ireland. Video footage nothing to do with the mine at all. Bad research / lazy editing...

    The Mir mine couldn't have been built by Joseph Stalin in 1955 since he died on March 5, 1953.    Nikita Khrushchev was running the country in 1955 after emerging victorious from a power struggle following Stalin's death.  Please get your facts straight! :)

    And the picture they showed, had it full of water?

  • The idiots called the Kennecott Utah Copper Mine as being in Bingham County.No such county exists in Utah I am Utah born and raised.It's called Bingham Canyon.The channel owner is too stupid to do some intelligent research.

    This is why diamonds aren’t really supposed to be expensive there’s an abundance of diamonds they just say they are rare which is bs

  • Danmagnamius  21 days ago

    If you watch the film blood diamond you will see that diamonds are stored to keep price down, plus restrictions in exporting and importing.
