Inside the Resolution Copper Mine, 1.3 Miles Underground

Оценок: 1594 | Просмотров: 240736
Mar. 14 -- There are deeper mines in North America than the Resolution mine but none with a single shaft this long. It is a 6,943 foot concrete barrel, 30 feet in diameter bored into the mountain of Arizona and took six years to dig. Bloomberg's Matt Philips journeys toward the center of the earth to check out this engineering marvel. (video by Adam Wolffbrandt)

I worked as a driller @ Kidd Creek mine in Ontario Canada. Its +9600' and the shaft bottom is approx 9880'. Its the deepest mine that I've worked in and I've been in a lot of em. Nice video. Thanks!!

Creighton mine Sudbury has a shaft depth of 7080 feet .... one continuous run ... kid creek Timmins is 10000'.... heat is a huge factor . Ridiculous hot down there

For years local businesses have helped resolution to open their underground mining facilities. Local businesses from Globe, Miami, Superior, San Carlos. Randy Seppala allowed other companies from other areas to work at resolution underground projects. You forgot us Randy Seppala, shall locals write letters to our new Senator?

Just goes to show how valuable copper is to a modern industrial economy. This has always been a relatively expensive metal but in recent years the price has skyrocketed and it's reflected in the price you pay for home electric wiring. Decades ago, things as mundane as GUTTERS and DOWNSPOUTS were made of this because it was resistant to corrosion and easy to form. Sheets of it were used as roof flashing around chimneys and vent pipes. Your whole house had copper pipe including the big drain lines; it was easy to cut and could be joined with solder rather than the threaded joints required on "iron" [actually steel] pipe. Now all that's been replaced with PVC.

Six billon investment without a product, undermine the ore and let it cave in upon itself, creating a huge cavity, it doesn't sound logical. Could this create a potential sink hole later? Temperature, water, cave in, deep shafts and no other way to escape,,, the hazard is extremely high for disaster with a debt to repay that is enormous! If it's successful, with no further problem of geological development, it will be an amazing engineering feat for sure.

What if the crust collapses one day cos of the sheer amount of mines we've created with drills, explosions, what if the mine effect becomes the new trend instead of global warming? What if when the crust crumples, we fall on our asses touching the hot magma core? What if after I die, just to find out there's no afterlife and I don't get rewarded for being nice to ppl

*I am not an expert but when they blast underneath, what stops the surface that loses support foundation from carving in?* *And $6 billion invested in this? Who pumps in $6b in a project that won't yield a single profit for the next 6-7 years? How much copper value is down there plus all expenses considered?*

Japan has negative interest rates, America had 0% interest rates for 7 years under Obama to prop up the stock market and maintain the illusion of prosperity. It also made it incredibly easy for companies to borrow money, as even a tiny interest rate is better than 0%. They even mention this in the beginning. This leads to malinvestment and mis-allocation of capital in the long run. It is not a coincidence that this started in 2008.

The idea makes no sense. You cant just magically blast rock and magic copper nuggets will just fall into nice compact funnels that will just refill themselves via gravity dropping the supposed loose copper rocks. They are going to lose their ass on this project.

Haha.... The only thing that makes "cents".... Is to keep going.... It's a copper mine... I see what you did there 😂😂 But seriously, is nobody going to mention the fact that they're drilling almost a mile and a half down to get at copper that "could one day satisfy 1/4 of the US demand for copper"? Infinite growth on a finite planet is lunacy. We'll have to colonize space one day, if this attitude continues. And that's going to take lots and lots and LOTS of money to develop the means, if it's even possible. It's not even close to being practical now. And what if the means to do so doesn't turn up for another 300 years? For another 100 years?! Research will have to stop due to lack of resources (and money) looooong before the answer is found.

Do you realize entire towns have survived on top of mines? Rarely do towns disappear into holes in the ground from mines that are dug wrong. And never have I heard of it happening when done right. Without these metals we could not exist in this world we live in.

Sharif Abdul (1 день назад)

Shalala (3 месяца назад)
And correct me if i'm wrong, it caving in would make a kind of natural arch? Which becomes sturdier the more weight is put on it no?
Benson (3 месяца назад)
A cave in is the point. It's easier to let gravity do the work than burrow down into it. This is not only a tried method, it's a proven one. Iron ore mines have used it already. If done correctly, it's not only structurally sound, it's safe and efficient compared to going top down.
VIDEOSUPERHIGHWAY (3 месяца назад)
nuclearTANK yeah the whole idea makes no sense.
Shalala (3 месяца назад)
Henry H. No matter the way you get the ore be it above or below you, you'll have a cavity, so idk what you are on about. We need the ore, and they are getting it for us, be thankful.
