Recently, one of our GEB readers pointed us to a Google Earth Engine Timelapse of an open pit mine near Bełchatów, Poland. We thought it would be interesting to do animations of it and other open pit mines using Google Earth imagery.

We chose a selection from this list on Wikipedia.


Bełchatów, Poland. Coal mine.
 


Cerro Vanguardia, Argentina. Gold and silver mine.
 


Cadia, Australia. Gold and copper mine.
 


Letlhakane, Botswana. Diamond mine.
