570 ratings | 86308 views
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)

What they don't say is the surface drops into the hole all the beautiful desert is going to look like a big pit all the animals that live on the surface will be killed and jeep trails which we have been using for years will be closed off.

blastman8888 so what?
Justin Carman (1 month ago)
You do realize, that because the vast majority of overburden is extremely competent sandstone, that subsidence will be extremely minimal. If there's any at all. Your desert and jeep trails will be fine.

blastman8888 ah yes, “jeep” trails through animals and a beautiful desert.

idk about blowing up the ceiling that sounds like a horrible idea and a massive cave in
Dank News Bruh (22 days ago)
With that logic, deepwater horizon should not have happened.

I grew up practically next to that mine and method there planning to use is called block cave mining it really is bad idea, the rock down there is so tough that when try try this they're gonna get boulders the size of houses, and I know for sure no one is gonna be willing to unjam it
RYoungPDX (10 months ago)
Orion Riedel they obviously know what they're doing. You're not the one mining lol
shramik h (1 year ago)
do you see how tall buildings are? and inside there's a lot a space. how come the ceiling doesn't collapse? because there are support structures. you don't need to be smart to know that.
Henry H. (1 year ago)
And don't forget the land ABOVE the copper deposit. If that deposit becomes a giant hole, the whole land above it could collapse. I wish videos would explain more and dumb-down less.
